Usually, with celebrities, I tend to ignore their political messages and enjoy their acting, music skills even if I happen to feel differently politically.
Foolish actions have consequences and now a radio station HITS 105 has decided to ban all of Madonna’s song as a matter of patriotism, and I am 100 percent with them. They are also calling for more to join them.
What Madonna said is criminal, so I can’t ignore that and neither should you.
It’s sad she has lowered herself so much! One couldn’t believe she could get any lower than before considering how trashy she was before this.
In a statement posted on the station’s Facebook page, general manager Terry Thomas said “Banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism. It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments. If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna.”
The radio station joins Newt Gingrich, Kellyanne Conway and Reince Priebus, among others, in condemning the singer’s speech in which she admitted to having “thought a lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything.”
Madonna, who also dropped a few f-bombs that were carried live on CNN and MSNBC before the news channels cut away, used the inflammatory imagery to segue into an audience-participation chant of “We choose love!”
She later posted an Instagram message clarifying her speech, disavowing violence and charging critics for taking her words “wildly out of context.”
Apparently unconvinced by the explanation, HITS 105, which plays songs from the 1960s to ’80, banned Madonna indefinitely, an announcement that drew more than a few snipes from Facebook commenters.
She should be banned!! Hell, she should be arrested and put in jail! She should at least have to pay a large fine!! Radio stations everywhere should treat her just like they treated The Dixie Chicks after Natalie Maines made her comment about Bush!! What Madonna said was way worse!!
I think she’ll learn to live with the disappointment. Besides, kids don’t listen to her anyway. She’s from my era, and even an old-timer like me has iTunes and satellite radio.
