Madonna at Women's March: Revolution starts here
Madonna on Trump's presidency: Good did not win this election
WASHINGTON – Madonna was among the celebrities who were part of the Women's March in Washington on Saturday.
The pop star peppered her speech with expletives. which prompted CNN and MSNBC to cut her airtime short. But the video was streamed live on the web and made it to YouTube.
"It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the [expletive] up," Madonna said before performing "Express Yourself" and "Human Nature."
Madonna said she had been so angry, she had thought about blowing up the White House. She said the march was part of a "revolution of love." Her call to arms, she said, was to defend not just women but all marginalized people.
"It seems as though we all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would prevail in the end," Madonna said. "Well, good did not win this election. But good will win in the end."
Madonna added that Saturday's march marks the beginning of a movement.
"The revolution starts here," she said.
