Madonna is no stranger to controversy, but it looks like she might have made one of the worst statements of her career yet. In fact, many media outlets are branding the former chart topper as "foolish" for telling her fans at a Stockholm concert that they need to give ISIS terrorists "dignity and respect" along with "unconditional love."
According to Gossip Cop on Sunday, Madonna addressed the tragic killings in Paris, France on Friday night in which six bombs killed 129 people and wounded several hundreds of more. The singer stopped her concert to pay tribute to those who died during the horrific event, while also telling her audience that the only way ISIS can be stopped is if we give them the dignity they deserve.
She said, "I feel torn. Like, why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones," before adding in tears, "However, that is exactly what these people want to do. They want to shut us up. They want to silence us. And we won't let them. We will never let them!"
Things then took a turn when Madonna said, "There are people who have no respect for human life, and there are people that do atrocious, degrading and unforgivable things to other human beings, but we will never ever, ever change this world that we live in if we do not change ourselves, if we do not change the way that we treat one another on a daily basis."
Madonna then added, "We must start treating every human being with dignity and respect, and this the only thing that will change the world... Only love will change the world, but it's very hard to love unconditionally, and it's very hard to love that which we do not understand or that which is different than we are, but we have to or this will go on and on forever."
