Madonna: Boy Scout Costume at GLAAD Media Awards 2013!

Madonna: Boy Scout Costume at GLAAD Media Awards 2013!

Madonna dresses up as a Boy Scout of America while attending the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday (March 16) at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

The 54-year-old entertainer was the featured guest at the event, which honored Anderson Cooper as the Vito Russo Award Recipient.

“I wanted to be a boy scout, but they wouldn’t let me join,” Madonna said during her speech. “I think that’s f–ked up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community. But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. So I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and I think they should change their stupid rules.”

    Love love love her! What a great and funny woman. All you haters can s*ck it.

  • vroomvroom

    at least she has a sense of humour …..

  • lisa

    You people realize that what she’s wearing is a statement against the Boy Scouts banning gays from joining. It’s not an outfit, it’s a statement. Bravo Madonna!

  • Crude


    By dressing as a Boy Scout??? God you’re stupid

  • marcos

    So because the Boy Scouts have a right to their opinion, she is protesting that. Real mature. Here’s a clue to homosexuals; if you aren’t happy with a certain group of people’s sentiments, avoid them. Don’t give them attention, don’t give them money, just be nice.

  • Bill

    That’s not a Boy Scout uniform. It’s a Cub Scout uniform (for 1st – 5th graders). She’s wearing some Boy Scout rank badges (wrong) but to anyone who actually knows anything about scouts she mostly just looks like a fool.

  • porquenon


    S*ck it bro. You know you want to.

  • porquenon

    Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt Billy boy.


    Gays are not meant to be! Why do u think gay people cant have babies, because they are not meant to, only straight people can!!!!!!!

  • MadOhNo

    Pass the sick bucket. Can this old bag be any more grotesque. Put it away granny!

  • leatherman

  • Crude

    No it’s OK I think you have that covered. But thanks for the invite ;)

  • artpop

    Madonna doesn’t care about anyone but Madonna. Gaga is the true gay rights activist.

  • MCLK

  • KissThis

    She looks creepy.

    ** discrimination

  • Monique

    You do know “gay” also refers to females right? Having a female gay in my family who’s had a baby, I’d put my money on “yes, gays can have babies”…your statement is just stupid lol

  • Stacey

    If you’re going to make a statement and mock an organization then at least make sure you are doing it right. As someone else pointed out, cub scout uniform and the patches are not even close to being correct.
    If I didn’t already agree with changing the rules, her stupidity would have sent me the other way. She is a moron.

  • Colleen

    I love you, Madonna! You’re a gay icon and you have been for years. First there was Elizabeth Taylor, then there was Madonna.

    Madonna is spectacular!

  • Colleen


    No bitch, you’re the moron. You’re just a jealous nobody. What have YOU done to earn close to a billion dollars? Yeah, you stupid bitch. That’s what I thought.

  • Looselipz

    Holysheet, she’s had more work done…
    Her tightly pulled back face combined with her anorexic body dressed as a boy is truly disturbing…
    She has no class.

  • jamie

    Those shorts are not working for her.

  • Joe

    Her speech was amazing & it is incredible to read such hateful comments about a speech about equality & against all of the homophobia and hate in the world. Madonna has been a pro gay activist since the beginning of her career. Both she and Gaga have done amazing things for the community. Stop the ridiculous bs and focus your energy on fighting against those that don’t think you are equal, that you are a sinner, evil, and don’t deserve rights.

  • Pata

    Madonna dear, please act your age, not your shoe size.

  • Verity

    @artpop: Madonna was a gay right activist before Lady GaGa was born! Good for Madonna, this whole Boy Scouts thing is ridiculous. Welcome to the 21st century!

  • ian


    You are so stupid… neither its meant to be that people kill other people, or woman being killed by their male partners, or neither its mean to be that the humans exterminate so many animals … so stfu!

  • LOL

    i know people are going to hate on her but i love this.. i feel like if anyone is genuinely eccentric it’s madonna.. (and prince) i just don’t believe gaga or nicky manaj’s personas..

    her hair/cap reminds me of a league of their own

  • Fruitfly

    I think her speech would have been more effective if she had retained an element of dignity by dressing appropriately. The uniform becomes satirical on a woman her age. Take a que from Angelina Jolie and remain professional when making political speeches.

  • Tia

    If you are that stupid you don’t realize why she wore that outfit or said what she did, then you need to go back into your cave. Also if you dislike her so much…why the hell are you bothering to take the Time to read this and comment? She’s SO right, people are SO intolerant. Shame on you folk who rant about her age, because we are ALL ageing. Some people’s stupidity is laughable.

  • Verity

    @Tia: Well said!!

  • Mary

    She is always perfect.

  • madho

    Wtf? Stop copying your daughter!!! She’s hot and you are not!!!

  • idiot

    She looks like an idiot

  • http://MADONNAEXPRESSYOURSELF Damien Chainel

    Attention do not especially donate to “La Manif Pour tous”, many inserts advertising executive on this page), it is a homophobic movement, against the equality of the rights!!!

  • Reba

    Stop with the gloves! We all know you’re old, stop setting low self-esteem examples for women, douche bag!

  • anon

    She just slandered the Girl Scouts. Have you ever heard of that adonna.

  • anon

    I mean Madonna, there is this fabulous organization called the Girl Scouts. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from them to enlighten your ignorant self.

  • Kfan

    Even after a speech about bullying and ignorance, half the comments posted about her speech are personal attacks rather then an intelligent discussion or commentary of the subject matter of bullying and ignorance, maybe this speech was too high brow for some.

  • marcos


    So anyone who doesn’t agree with you is a bigot. And ignorant, lol! All my years of college and real world experience trumps yours any day. And I am not a bigot; I just realize what a hypocrite she is and how intolerant she is against those who think homosexuality is not something to celebrate or advertise. Grow up, and let the world have diversity of opinion. You want people to worship gays but it won’t happen.
