Madonna’s surprising performance – and her ensemble – at the MTV VMAs in 2021 had Twitter in a crazy Sunday night.
The “material girl” hit the stage in her full Madonna glory as she opened a beige trench coat to reveal the black naughty leotard she was wearing underneath.
“And they said we would not last. But we are still here morfers,” Madonna roared to the audience before Justin Bieber took the stage for tonight’s first performance.
Viewers, including Kathy Griffin, had plenty to say Sunday night.
“If you drag Madonna online tonight, you can’t really call yourself a feminist,” tweeted Kathy Griffin, 60, while Madonna, 63, provided a monologue to open the show. “If the reason you drag her is because she committed the crime by still being alive and behaving in a way that you personally do not approve of, you are definitely age-related.”

Meanwhile, many responded to Griffin’s tweet and issued their own support for Madonna.

“She’s done more for women than many of us realize,” another fan wrote to Griffin. “She has paved the way for female artists and is my hero. In addition, she was the first artist in the ’80s to say that it was okay to be a woman and love sex.”
