With a pair of pink panties matching her bright pink hair, Madonna has seemingly announced that she's gay to the world of TikTok.
"If I miss, I'm Gay," the queen of pop wrote on a TikTok of her Sunday. In the video, she's in her beautiful house and crumples up a pair of bright pink panties into a ball. She then throws the underwear towards a trash can.
The pair of underwear dramatically drops about three feet from the trash can, leading Madonna to do a mix of a shrug and a wave, reminding us all of the icon she is.
Did Madonna just come out as gay? Has she already been open about her sexuality? Let's take a closer look.
Some fans are accusing the music legend of queerbaiting with the video. They allege that she just wants to get attention and stay relevant. However, this isn't her first time getting up close and personal with the LGBTQ+ community.
While Madonna has famously had a lot of relationships and flings with men, including Tupac Shakur, Dennis Rodman, Carlos Leon, and her marriages to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie, she has also always maintained a close relationship with the LGBTQ+ community, and oftentimes, with queer women.
Apart from her allyship, inclusion, and highlighting of gay dancers in videos like "Vogue," and her raising awareness about AIDS and gay marriage, Madonna has also spent some time in relationships with other women and has been considered a bisexual icon for years.
Model Jenny Shimizu, who also famously dated Angelina Jolie in the '90s, said that she and Madonna would meet up for sex many times before the singer married Guy Ritchie. There was also the time Madonna was captured in a love triangle with her close friend (and maybe more) Sandra Bernhard and the model Ingrid Caseres.
According to lesbian lore, and more recently, according to designer Isaac Mizrahi, Madonna and Bernhard were close friends in the '90s when Bernhard was dating Caseres. Then, when Madonna and Caseres met, sparks flew, and the two were soon spending a lot of time alone together.
This led to an alleged relationship between Madonna and Caseres that ended the singer's friendship with Bernhard.
"Madonna, she's amazing, Sandra's amazing," Mizrahi recalled on Watch What Happens Live recently. "It was a whole weird thing with Ingrid Casares, where Sandra was sort of involved with Ingrid and then she was f***ing Madonna, it was a whole thing."
So it turns out, maybe Madonna has been trying to tell us she was gay for the last three decades. Now everyone is finally listening.
