Madonna is no stranger to controversy, but it looks like she could be in a little more trouble than usual over some controversial remarks she made at a Women’s March on the weekend.

You might remember reading about Madonna saying she thought “an awful lot about blowing up the White House”.

Well, it looks like she might no be getting away with saying that!

The 58-year-old made the comment at the Women’s March in Washington on Saturday, joining hundreds of thousands of women in protest again Donald Trump.

She also told Trump to “suck a d***”.

The comments might have earned her applause and cheers at the march, but they’ve disgusted a lot of people here on Starts at 60 and they’ve drawn the attention of US authorities.

A long-time advisor to Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich told Fox News program Fox & Friends that he believed Madonna “ought to be arrested”.

“What you have is an emerging left-wing fascism. She’s part of it, and I think we have to prepare to protect ourselves,” he said.

“The truth is, she ought to be arrested.” 

Meanwhile, a right-wing blog has published unverified claims that Madonna is “being investigated by the Secret Service”.

The Gateway Pundit describes Madonna as “an ageing pop star”  and claims a Secret Service spokesman told them “an investigation would be opened but that the decision to prosecute rests with the U.S. Attorney’s office”.

While there’s no word official word on whether an investigation will take place, many people believe Madonna should be investigated over the comments.

But she’s hit back, claiming her comments were taken “wildly out of context”.

“I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I do not promote violence and it’s important people hear and understand my speech in it’s entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out content.

“I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything.

Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. However I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. My speech began with " I want to start a revolution of love." ♥️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world. I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love. It was truly an honor to be part of an audience chanting “we choose love”. 🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸 #revoltutionoflove♥️#revolutionoflove♥️*******************************************************

What do you think? Should Madonna be investigated over her comments? Or does she have a right to free speech?

    Of course she should be in strife for her comments. Celebrities and the like seem the think they are above the law. If I had said that on there would be no doubt. Say that at a airport these days and see what happens. Gone are the days when you could say anything anywhere. As the the other comment telling Trump to ‘suck…” smart, intelligent words Madonna – probably the only instructions that that your supporters at your rally could understand.

  2. Bruce Taylor  

    Have to say that Newt Gingrich seems to be a bit mixed up. Fascism is the far right of politics not the far left.
    As far as complaining about Madonnas comments America claims to have freedom of speech so surely she can say what ever she likes. Remember Trump saying prior to the election that he groped women because they liked it…

    You are so right Bruce with mentioning the groping story, that’s bad.
    But how would you word the escapades from J.F. Kennedy and Clinton?
    I think they are far more serious than the groping story, in my books anyway.
    What I also can’t understand are all those protest marches around the world.
    Here in OZ we had all the above mentioned marches, but can you really recall the last demonstration against the cut backs in our health system or pension related demos. Demos concerning our unemployed, homeless and job depletion etc.
    I would love to see the same people on the street for a more proper reason concerning our well being and country but this will probably never happen.
    We have to get our priority’s right.
