Was Madonna trying to make a political statement with her ... butt? That might have been the case as the chart topper says that her ensemble at the Met Gala earlier this week was more of a "political statement" than a dress.
In fact, the Material Girl herself said that her Ricardo Tisci-designed dress - which barely covered many of her assets--definitely did the job when it came to leaving a fashion statement on the red carpet that night.
After many fans criticized Madonna for the dress by wearing, "Little too much skin, don't you think?", while also calling her "trash" Madonna was quick to defend herself and her sense of style while she was at it, too.
The blonde beauty explained on her Instagram account, "We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to Women's rights we are still in the dark ages. My dress at the Met Ball was a political statement as well as a fashion statement. The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous past a certain age is proof that we still live in an age-ist and sexist society."

She added, "I have never thought in a limited way and I'm not going to start. We cannot effect change unless we are willing to take risks. By being fearless and By taking the road less traveled by. That's how we change history. If you have a problem with the way I dress it is simply a reflection of your prejudice. I'm not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind me‼" the singer concluded. "As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality!"
