Madonna to Ellen: “I Wouldn’t Have a Career if it Weren’t For The Gay Community”



Pop culture icon Madonna reminded us why we love her so much during an appearance on Ellen Tuesday. After copping to a lice problem at Casa Ciccone (See, celebs really are like everyone else!), The Material Girl discussed the rash of suicides among gay teens and college students as a result of bullying.
 
During the chat, Madonna shared how after suffering bullying herself as a teen, she was embraced by a community of artists, who took the future pop goddess to her first gay disco, which helped her feel more comfortable in her own skin. The woman Lola, Rocco, David and Mercy call Mom credited the gay community with making her the legend she is. Watch the clip after the jump!

    My first visit to Chaps in Boston circa 1983 made me feel alive as a gay man for the first time in my life! I can totally understand where Madonna’s coming from! That’s where I first heard Everybody!
