A few weeks ago I posted this picture of Madonna's boy toy, Jesus, in my Christ's Musical Express blog entry. I highlighted the connection between the age gap between Madonna and Jesus, the fact that he's wearing a shirt that says "boy", and the fact that he has on Disney mouse ears.
A couple of days ago I ran across these photos of Madonna from around 86/87 (True Blue/Who's That Girl/You Can Dance era).
As you can see, in the last picture, Madonna has placed Micky Mouse's hand in her shirt on her breast.
Earlier that year (or the year before) Madonna kissed a young boy on the lips in the music video for "Open Your Heart". Surprisingly the scene caused no controversy and no one in the media even mentioned it. Yet, even before any allegations, people were already questioning Michael Jackson's association with children. Let's take a look at the video for "Open Your Heart".
The video has a lot of interesting elements to it like the inclusion of gay characters and the female characters who lust after Madonna but I want to focus on something that hasn't been addressed enough, Madonna's relationship with the young boy in the video.
The video is about a young boy trying to get into an adult erotic peep show.
The star in the show is Madonna. Her look in this video is androgynous and it reminds me of a mix between James Dean and Sally Bowles from Cabaret.
At the end of the video she leaves the club and kisses the young boy on the lips.
At 2:48 of the following clip, Madonna's inappropriate conduct towards thee young boy (played by a different actor on the tour) continues. When she kisses him here the crowd screams.
Her interaction with him was inappropriate several times during the show. You can view the entire show here.
Moving right along...
At this weekend's BET Awards (ironically dedicated to Michael Jackson) rising rap star Drake performed "Every Girl" with Lil Wayne. If you haven't heard the song yet the main lyrics are "I wish I could fuck every girl in the world." The entire song is basically about fucking girls. Let's take a look at the girls they chose to perform with them for this song.
What the hell? What is the point of these children being on stage "shaking it" during such a vulgar song?
