Camille Paglia Rips Madonna: 'Humiliating, Embarrassing' Decline: eminist writer Camille Paglia has penned a pointed essay in response to Madonna, who called her out by name during her acceptance speech at Billboard’s Women in Music Awards on Friday.
“Camille Paglia, the famous feminist writer, said that I set women back by objectifying myself sexually,” Madonna said toward the end of her 10-minute monologue. “Oh, I thought, so if you’re a feminist, you don’t have sexuality. You deny it. So I said, “F*ck it.” I’m a different kind of feminist. I’m a bad feminist.”
