I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.
Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....
She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!
Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.
Including some tears.
If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.
Thank you Madonna.
Read her entire speech below:
"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."
Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: "People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

At this years Emmy Awards, the show took home Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Kidman), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Outstanding Directing (Jean-Marc Vallee).
