The Women's March and sister rallies across the world have shared speeches from amazing figures--from entertainers like Alicia Keys and Janelle Monae to Sen. Elizabeth Warren and feminist Gloria Steinem.
As the march--which exceeded turnout expectations at about half a million people--started, Madonna made a surprise speech that expressed everything we love about the legendary diva.
"Are you ready to shake up the world?" she asked the crowd. "Welcome to the revolution of love."
She called the march the start of a movement that was "a refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny." She also chastised social movements and the left for having "slipped into a false sense of comfort."
The diva didn't hold back about what this election meant for those groups. "It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the fuck up."
And Madonna had a special message to the "detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything: fuck you."
It's about that time that live news outlets realized they had to pull away from Madonna (because they forgot that, yeah, this is Madonna we're talking about). But the singer ended her speech with hope
"It is the beginning of much needed change," she said. "I choose love. Are you with me?"
