Madonna is now defending her expletive-laden speech at the Women’s March on Saturday (January 21st) saying her words were “taken wildly out of context.”

At the Washington D.C. march, she said there had been times when she had thought “an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

In a statement Sunday on Instagram, Madonna said she was trying to express there are two ways to respond to Donald Trump’s election: with hope or with outrage. She said she hopes to affect change “with love.” Read more…

In the statement on Instagram, she also said that she doesn’t condone violence and that people should listen to her speech again “in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.”

Cable News Networks cut her off after she used expletives. MSNBC later apologized.

Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. However I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. My speech began with " I want to start a revolution of love." ♥️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world. I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love. It was truly an honor to be part of an audience chanting “we choose love”. ????♥️????♥️????♥️????♥️???? #revoltutionoflove♥️#revolutionoflove♥️*******************************************************
