A day after the march, the singer through her Twitter account went on to clarify that the statement was taken out of context. She posted that she was not a violent person and she also does not promote aggression. She felt that it was important for people to understand her speech in its entirety rather than one phrase that was taken ‘wildly out of context.’

Madonna was one of the very many celebrities who went on stage to speak out on women’s rights and equality when she made that statement.

In her speech, she started by saying that she wanted to start a revolution of love. The pop star went on to say that she would like to encourage women and marginalized people to come together and create positive change in the world. Madonna also talked about the people who were against the nationwide march; she dismissed them for them thinking that the protest would not add up to anything.

Her speech elicited backlash and negative reaction from Trump’s representatives but she clarified that she was not trying to promote violence.

The Express Yourself singer said that the rally was amazing and beautiful and she was there to express herself. She added that she was speaking in metaphor and shared two ways of looking at things. One of the ways was to be hopeful and the other was to be angry and outraged which she acknowledged that she felt. According to her, as much as she felt that way, she acknowledged that anger does not solve anything and that the only way things will change for the better is to do it with love.

Madonna concluded that it was an honor to be part of the audience chanting they choose love.

At a Talks event at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, she said that she hopes that this election would signal some kind of change. She commented that it is the darkest before dawn and the election of Trump had to happen in order to bring people together.

Apart from Madonna, other celebrities who took part in the march were Miley Cyrus, Blake Lively, Amy Schumer, Helen Mirren, and Amber Rose. There are also who participated in other major cities such as Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago.
