In an interview with “Harper’s Bazaar,” Madonna said she’s, “always felt oppressed.”…which is a very Madonna thing to say.
In reality, she has amassed a fortune that’s worth between $550 and $800 million and a lot of the ‘controversy’ surrounding her she actually instigated HERSELF. It’s basically always been her ‘thing.’
But that’s not the kind of “oppression” she’s talking about: “I know a lot of people would go, ‘Oh, that’s ridiculous for you to say that. You’re a successful white, wealthy pop star.’
“But I’ve had the [crap] kicked out of me for my entire career, and a large part of that is because I’m female and also because I refuse to live a conventional life.
“I’ve created a very unconventional family. I have lovers who are three decades younger than me. This makes people very uncomfortable.”

"I believe in freedom of expression, I don't believe in censorship. I believe in equal rights for all people. And I believe women should own their sexuality and sexual expression. I don't believe there's a certain age where you can't say and feel and be who you want to be."
