Madonna says she’s gay in a TikTok, but social media’s hung up

Madonna is no stranger to dividing audiences. But with her latest TikTok, the hitmaker is facing a torrent of support and criticism.

“If I miss I’m gay,” the pop star captioned a TikTok video posted Sunday. The short clip showed the singer playing basketball in her luxurious boudoir with a pair of pink panties and a trash can. She tried to throw the underwear in the bin but instead it ended up on the floor. Undeterred by her miss, Madge turned and waved a peace sign.

If the caption is correct, then Madonna may have come out as gay on her TikTok, which went viral and received mixed reactions.

“Just saw Madonna come out good for her,” one TikTok user replied to the video.

“We are witnesses to their story,” said another.

TikTok sparked conversations about the “Material Girl” singer’s sexuality, but also sparked conversations about whether the pop icon was “queerbaiting” and imploring fans within the LGBTQ community to gain popularity or boost sales.

“It’s just a trend that queer lures are doing to get attention.” said one Twitter user dismissively Madonna’s video and its potential are coming out.

Other Twitter users said the singer “is not gay” and “just wants attention,‘ and that her video is on TikTok Madonna’s path “Seek validation from young people, stay relevant.”

Other uses of Twitter came in Madonna’s defense.

“People call it queerbaiting. You clearly don’t know WHO MADONNA IS. This new generation really needs to educate themselves and stop saying whatever is on their little heads.” said a Twitter fan in response to the claims.

“Oh, I know the term ‘queerbaiting’ has lost all meaning when the Tik-Tok teenagers use it on MADONNA.” said another.

Adding to the criticism of the social media users calling Madonna queer bait or saying she is not Welcome to the queer communityFans drew attention to the singer’s allies’ long history with the LGBTQ community, including raising awareness of AIDS in the ’80s.

“Madonna was one of the few celebrities who spoke out about it and used her considerable resources to destigmatize it and get things done.” said a Twitter user. “Below all the hype, she’s the real deal.”

Twitter also brought up the singer’s infamous lip lock with Britney Spears at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, which was one of a handful of times the singer publicly showed her affection for other women.

Madonna recently teamed up with rapper Tokischa for “Hung Up on Tokischa,” a new rendition of the popular 2005 hit. In her music video, the two musicians can be seen caressing and kissing in suggestive positions. The duo were also spotted locking lips at a runway show in September.

If the “Vogue” singer is gay, as she implied in her TikTok, that’s simply why it “doesn’t come as a surprise” to some fans. “NO straight person can serve as hard as they do.”
