Madonna has left a lot of people questioning her sexual orientation over a cryptic video on TikTok. The singer, who is known as an important ally of the LGBTQI+ community, hints in the video that she is coming out, although not everyone is convinced.
In the five-second video, Madonna holds a pair of neon pink panties in her hand, which she later tries to throw in a trash can. On the screen appears the text “If I miss, I am gay” . It can then be seen that she does not manage to throw the underpants in the bin, although it is obvious that she deliberately misses. The flamboyant singer shrugs after her ‘failed’ throw, before turning around and walking away.
Did Madonna come out or did she misunderstand another tiktok trend

Many fans wonder in the comments of the TikTok video what Madonna is trying to make clear with the video. “Did Madonna just come out? And am I witnessing this in real time now?” , writes one fan. Others wonder if the video is more ironic or think she misunderstood a TikTok trend.
Anyway, many people realize that Madonna has never made it a secret that she is open to intimacy with people of the same sex. For example, in June of this year during the New York City Pride, the singer made no effort to hide her intimacy with rapper Tokischa.

In addition, many people remember the performance by Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the MTV Music Video Awards in 2003, where Madonna and Britney kissed on live television. Madonna said in an interview with The Advocate in 1991 that she can be attracted to both men and women. “I think everyone has a bisexual nature.”
Some of y’all need to put respect on Madonna’s name. Her philanthropy and activism for gay rights when no one else dared to talk about them is something to never ever forget. pic.twitter.com/NK5ZfuBwqN

Regardless of whether Madonna wants to make her sexuality clear with the video, she has long been an important ally of the LGBTQI+ community. In the eighties, for example, she already spoke out to create support for free choices in the field of gender and orientation.
The nonprofit Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) recognized her merits in 1991 and 2019 for “raising awareness about homosexuality” and as an “ambassador of change.”
American news sites, such as Billboard and New York Times, have asked Madonna’s team for a statement after her TikTok video. They have not yet received a response.
