Madonna Shades Beyoncé: ‘Demure’ Is the New ‘Reductive’
During an interview with Us Weekly, Madonna was asked who she’d like to meet. Her response?
“Well, I haven’t met Obama. He probably thinks I’m too shocking to be invited to the White House. If I was a little bit more demure. If I was just married to Jay Z…”
You might already know this, but Beyoncé is married to Jay Z. Madonna laughed and added, “[Jay Z] could take me for a second wife.”
So there you have it: Madonna thinks Beyoncé — who once released a song about performing fellatio in the back of a limousine — is “demure,” a word which, when coming from Madonna’s lips, sounds astoundingly disparaging.
Is “Madonna calling Beyoncé ‘demure'” the “Madonna calling Lady Gaga ‘reductive’” of 2015? Only time will tell, but the answer is almost definitely “yes.”
