Madonna: sex selling hypocrite

I guess as a youngster she was busy designing wacky, risqué outfits when she should have been learning the definitions of words, but Madonna — the famed "Material Girl" — uttered a whopper recently misusing the word "irony" when she should have been using the word "hypocrite"... as in what she is.

Of course the first thought that anyone has of pop singer Madonna is sex, sex, sex. She has made her entire career on selling her sexuality. From the days of 1983's hit "Holliday," to photo spreads in Playboy and Penthouse, to crawling on stage like a cat in heat, to girl-on-girl kisses, and raunchy videos throughout, Madonna has made her bucks with her body with as much skin showing as possible at all times even today in her 50s.

But, suddenly mother Madonna is hopeful that her own 13-year-old daughter, Lourdes, will "dress more conservatively." Sex is bad all of a sudden when Madonna is talking about her own child.

Madonna told the magazine Us Weekly that she wished her child would not emulate the sexually exploitive style she herself made her career on.

    Madonna may be a style icon, but that doesn't mean daughter Lourdes Leon, 13, takes her advice. "If anything, I wish she'd dress more conservatively," says the pop star, 51. "How's that for irony?"

No, Mz Madonna. How's that for hypocrisy, not "irony."

Like a true lefty, Madonna sees nothing wrong with exploiting her own sexuality and creating an empire that invites millions of pre-teen girls the world over to emulate her, yet when it is her daughter that wants to sex herself up, suddenly it's "conservative" time for Mz Madonna!

This is a direct admission that she knows that what she has spent the last 40 years doing was illicit, wrong, and bad for kids. But, you see, when it's her fans and her fans parents that are being harmed, Madonna doesn't care. But should her own child start down that path it's Katie bar the door and time to enroll the girl in a Nunnery. Suddenly Mz Madonna becomes all prudish and wants to prevent the sexual exploitation of her own daughter.

It isn't "irony," Mz Madonna. It's hypocrisy that you wallow in.
