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?

Well said @Caitlyn. Madonna is a proactive participant, always has been, and gets my vote over the huge number of reactive bystanders on here. If you want the world to be a good place firstly YOU need to change. Madonna has always stuck her neck out, she has no fear and fear is ego. Work it out! We tend to criticise others for Tge lack we see in ourselves. Stop judging, show mercy and get off your trolling backsides and do something proactive!

what a fool she is …..she will still do anything for attention even at 54 years old. Did standing up for a cause really require wearing a boyscout uniform? I pity her teenage kids having to be embarrassed by her never ending nonsense.

She has been the head of anything evil, and she contunues her status,,,I think Hillary came out of the closet yesterday, too, Why do people want to turn America into a Sodom of Shame ?

First, Girls cannot be boy scout. Unless in a Venturing crew. That is what the girl scouts are for. Second, you could at least research and wear the uniform properly. No, that would actually be worse. She looks ridiculous. And what point did you make?

Isn’t she silly ?

I am the proud mother of an Eagle Scout and Madonna is an over the hill hag.
