Wait, Did Madonna Just Come Out? Here’s Why Social Media Thinks So

”I’m gay,” said the iconic singer in a recent TikTok video.

Today is National Coming Out Day, but as always Madonna appears to be ahead of the trend. In a video posted to the queer icon’s TikTok, Madge appears to come out as “gay,” and naturally Gay Twitter is losing it.

In the video, the “Vogue” singer holds up a pair of bright pink boy-cut underwear, with the caption “If I miss, I’m gay”. Madonna then throws the underwear. Cut to her being not even close to making it into the garbage can “basket”. She then turns away from the camera dramatically.

While the words haven’t literally come out of her mouth, the singer appears to be implying that she is indeed officially part of the family.

As of this writing, the TikTok video has racked up more than 1.5 million views and has sent social media abuzz.





Of course, not everyone is celebrating. Some accused the singer of attention-seeking and even gaybaiting. But long-time fans of the artist who are familiar with her history of allyship pushed back on both accusations.


While Madonna has only ever publicly been in relationships with men throughout her four-decade-spanning career, recently she has been leaning more into her possible queerness. She celebrated her 64th birthday by making out with two women in Italy. She also broke the internet in June when she and rapper Tokischa got steamy on the NYC Pride stage. The two reunited aurally and orally in the music video for a remix of Madonna’s 2005 hit “Hung Up”. All of this is to say that it wouldn’t come as a shock if Madonna is coming out. If that proves to be the case, welcome to the family.
