Madonna's Latest Controversial Outfit: A Cub Scout Uniform!

Madonna has certainly never shied away from controversy — and now she’s actually looking to be a part of it!

The singer, 54, donned a Cub Scout uniform to honor Anderson Cooper at the GLAAD Awards in N.Y.C. Saturday. The Boy Scouts of America are currently under scrutiny for their longstanding ban on gay members — and, apparently, pop icon singers.

“I wanna be a Boy Scout but they won’t let me!” Madonna wrote on her Instagram account. “I know how to rub 2 pieces of wood together!” (Also on her list of scouting skills, per her speech at the awards: “I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees.”)

Madonna is just the latest celeb to take the Scouts to task for the anti-gay policy, but she definitely went the extra step in donning the uniform and giving it signature Madonna touches like fingerless gloves and sheer tights — which she’d likely have to ditch if she does get accepted to the Boy Scouts one day. They’re hardly camping appropriate!

Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s style statement?

Why do people that live in other countries think Americans care what they believe.

Its sad when someone is willing to make a fool of themselves in a desperate attempt to stay relevant. Madonna and Rodman seem to have this in common these days.

Just read some of the comments… Madonna is not old unless 54 is considered old. If so, then what is 80!! And anyone at any age should be able to stand up for what they believe in. Madonna rocks!

I kind of feel sorry for Madonna. She’s so desperate for any type of media coverage she has to resort to things that MAY make people talk. Your music in the past WAS amazing but at this point you’re just embarrassing yourself.

Don’t think much of her or her so called “style statement”.

EXACTLY why folks need to stop listening to “celebrities”. What a joke, not to mention she looks foolish.

Not surprised – it’s Madonna. All I can say is at least she has more clothes on than I have seen her wear on stage in a long while.


Starting to look a lot like “Baby Jane” that old movie with Bette Davis, yikes, and I’m a fan . . .

I love her. Always pushing the envelope.

Boyscouts would rather be molested.
