About half way through that she says that she considers herself a minority. I think she means as a woman, when you consider that the gender gap is what it is today (is it 10% of CEOs are women?) then hasn't she got a point somewhere there but was articulated very badly?

She's very rich, and very rich people are in a minority, yes.

A very privileged minority. My heart bleeds, it really does hmm

No. She has once again inserted foot firmly in mouth.

But there is a point deep in there though no? Obviously not said well or by the right person

There's is absolutely nothing I. The world she couldn't have or access.

She is not hard done by, she is not a minority.

She's a minority because she's a hideous woman who should wrap her mouth in duct tape. The rest of us are fabulous.

I wouldn't say women were a minority as such, but there is definite discrimination against us, particularly in some American states with regards to reproductive rights. I don't see Trump improving this situation.

I was more hmm about Kelly Osborne's comment. Awful woman.

she said she felt women are marginalised so a minority when it comes to having power

I agree Kelly Osborne's comment awful

Money can't buy you love, she is a single mum. Money wont solve everything

Money can't buy you love, 100%

It does get you a nanny and a good lawyer

Do you think being a single mum is a problem that needs to be solved? confused

She didn't say women are a minority. She talked about women and minorities. She didn't say that she was a minority

""There's is absolutely nothing I. The world she couldn't have or access.""

I'm just slightly younger than her and can remember how she was slaughtered by the press because she was very sexually actively. Compare the way that any female and male sex life is refered to and and it's clear that there is a disparage towards Women.

She also had a Catholic upbringing and as said, lived under the US reproductive/abortion laws.

If you've been publicly sexually active, as a Woman, there's lots that you can't access, still.

....and she may be über wealthy now, but she left home with $17 in her pocket after a childhood of adversity. The story could have been - and often is - very different in a background of poverty.

What did jelly Osborne say?

JellyBelli Wed 23-Nov-16 20:07:37

Miley Cyrus said 'please treat people with love and treat people with compassion and treat people with respect'. I think she has a fucking nerve after the way she treated Sinead O'Connor.

Madonna said 'because there's a lot of people out there that dont believe that women have a voice, or that minorities have a voice..and I do consider myself a minority..women are marginalised, lets face it.'

Kelly Osborne said 'if you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?'

''Money can't buy you love''

Maybe not but I bet its easier being single with an enormous income than poverty stricken.

She's of Italian American heritage, a group that have certainly faced discrimination in the past. Yes she's rich now, but it doesn't mean she didn't have a lot to overcome.

And this is from someone who can't stand the woman...

That exactly ding! It's very disappointing the amount of people poo pooing Madonna as not being a minority just because she's rich.
