Camille Paglia: "Madonna is the future of feminism" (1990)
If you read between the lines of this YouTube piece you will see why Madonna, who was given an academic/intellectual boost by Camille Paglia in the early days of Madonna's career, has now turned on Paglia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hehyzlwafKQ Paglia loved Madonna and what she represented. She said so much about her at the time. But Paglia, though a lifelong Democrat, was weary of the feminist movement turning into an arm of the Democratic Party & PC rectitude. Now Madonna has become 'political' in the narrow, pro-Democratic Party sense, it is only logical for her to turn against Paglia. Shame. Camille Paglia is is right to defend herself: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4029528/Feminist-Camille-Paglia-hits-Madonna-s-claims-rebuffed-female-peers-start-career.html It is travesty that the Madonna we knew is now playing the victim card.
