Madonna's Latest Controversial Outfit: A Cub Scout Uniform!

Madonna has certainly never shied away from controversy — and now she’s actually looking to be a part of it!

The singer, 54, donned a Cub Scout uniform to honor Anderson Cooper at the GLAAD Awards in N.Y.C. Saturday. The Boy Scouts of America are currently under scrutiny for their longstanding ban on gay members — and, apparently, pop icon singers.

“I wanna be a Boy Scout but they won’t let me!” Madonna wrote on her Instagram account. “I know how to rub 2 pieces of wood together!” (Also on her list of scouting skills, per her speech at the awards: “I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees.”)

Madonna is just the latest celeb to take the Scouts to task for the anti-gay policy, but she definitely went the extra step in donning the uniform and giving it signature Madonna touches like fingerless gloves and sheer tights — which she’d likely have to ditch if she does get accepted to the Boy Scouts one day. They’re hardly camping appropriate!

Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s style statement?

This woman is SO desperate for attention. Your time for fame is over Madonna! You are as old as my mother and I’m 36. Stop trying so hard to stay relevant, PLEASE!

Well Betty, I’m not sure who the “we” you are referring to consists of, but Madonna is fabulous, always stranding up for what she believes in, never one to shy away from controversy. I love her and I love even more that she is standing up for equal rights! Love the material girl!

It’s the fact that she LOOKS ridiculous. She doesn’t have to dress like a moron to prove a point.

Sad and old. There are better ways to be active for your causes than looking like a fool. It just doesn’t work for her, IMO.
