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?

Baby Jane Hudson lives! Does this woman NOT see how foolish she looks? Long blonde hair and wearing a scout uniform at age 24? HOT. Long blonde hair and wearing a scout uniform at age 54? NOT HOT. Not hot and a little sad.

Lucy on

This woman needs to take a permanent vacation…sooooooooo tired of her.

Hope on

She looks very silly. I thought that little boys were in the boy scouts? Why is their sexuality even being discussed? I think it is innapropriate. Chhildren in this day and age are pushed into things they wouldn’t usually do.

Hope on

This is innapropriate. Discussing little boys sexuality is innapropriate, period. Only a monster would be talking about this they way they are. Why is such a very important thing for the public to be discussing little boys?!! It’s sick.

Nunvyrbiz on
