Madonna Wins Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award and Gives This Bold Speech

Video Source: Billboard

When Madonna won Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award, she didn’t share the usual speech thanking everyone that helped her get there. Instead, she talked about the tough stuff: the rampant sexism, age-ism, and racism of the male-run music industry.

In the video of her speech (which was edited by Billboard), Madonna shares her rough beginnings in New York City that included numerous robberies, a rape, and the loss of many friends to AIDS and drugs.

She talks about how “Women have been oppressed for so long that they believe what men have to say about them” and told all the women in the audience, “As women, we have to start appreciating our own worth, and each other’s worth.”

She shares lots of store words and gets bleeped-out a couple times, but in the end, Madonna thanks all her naysayers

In the end, she even thanked all of her doubters, naysayers, and all those who gave her hell, saying “you’re resistance made me stronger; made me push harder; made me the fighter that I am today; made me the woman that I am today.

Here’s what Lady Gaga thought about the speech:

CLN RADIO NEW EPISODE – The Extraterrestrial Influence in the Music Industry

Alexis chats with UFOlogy Researcher Grant Cameron about the integral role E.T.’s may play in the music we hear.

Investigative journalist and fringe researcher Grant Cameron is no stranger to the ET/UFO story. Cameron’s quest into this puzzling yet important subject began in 1975 when he personally witnessed a sighting in Canada, which popularly became known as Charlie Red Star. Some 40+ years later, Cameron’s work has become synonymous with the presidential aspect of UFOlogy. A big aspect to be sure. But what some of you may not know about this thorough and inquisitive journalist is his research into the E.T. influence on the musical scene. According to Grant, this influence is huge and in his words “complex.” After following what seemed to be an endless trail of clues, Grant Cameron is clear – Our most influential musicians ARE in contact with non-human intelligence!

Some key points from this episode:

  • How many musicians are actually “experiencers” or “abductees?”
  • Which musical icons may have extraterrestrial ties
  • How lyrics may reveal extraterrestrial encounters
  • The “end-game” of the E.T.’s in using music for their message

In this eye-opening interview we also touch on the role the E.T./UFO story plays in presidential politics. The timing couldn’t be better!

grant-cameronGrant Cameron became involved in Ufology in 1975 with personal sightings of an object which locally became known as Charlie Red Star. The sightings occurred in Carman, Manitoba. In the past few years Cameron has turned his research interests to the involvement and actions of the President of the United States in the UFO problem. He has made 20+ trips to the National Archives and most of the various Presidential archives looking for presidential UFO material.

One highlight of his presidential UFO research was the chance to question Vice-President Dick Cheney on his knowledge of the UFO subject. Another highlight of the presidential UFO research was a FOIA to the White House Office of Science and Technology which yielded 1,000 pages of UFO documents from the Clinton administration. Many of these findings have been written up on his website, www.presidentialufo.com. At present Cameron is awaiting almost 100 FOIA requests from the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, related to the UFO related actions and policies inside the two Presidential terms of Bill Clinton.
