Madonna criticized Boy Scouts of America for their ban on gay members dressed in a scout uniform.

Madonna’s outfit choices have always kept us on our toes. Her latest ‘fit continued to shock as she stepped out as a boy scout on Saturday night at the GLAAD Media Awards. Challenging the Boy Scouts of America recent ban on homosexual members, Madonna arrived to the awards dressed in a Boy Scout Of America costume complete with a blue belted playsuit, fingerless gloves, fishnet tights, a brimmed hat and leather biker boots.

Presenting the Vito Russo Award to Anderson Cooper the “Girl Gone Wild” singer snubbed the Scouts organization giving a 12-minute long speech on homophobia and bullying. 

"I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn't let me join," Madonna explained. "I think that's fucked up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees."

"I want to do good for the community," Madonna continued. "Most importantly I know how to scout for boys. So, I think I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and they should change their stupid rules.”

The speech ended in true Madonna fashion.  The Queen of Pop gave Cooper a big kiss on the lips calling him a "gorgeous freedom fighter.”
