There’s no brighter tourist destination than Times Square, and no bigger pop star than Madonna.
So it made sense for the Queen of Pop to use the famous Manhattan intersection on Thursday night (June 24) to premiere her “No fear, Courage, Resist” video.
The Pride Weekend-themed video was filmed with Ricardo Gomes, and it flashed up on the big screens of Times Square for the world to see.
The Queen of Pop teased the big show. “Tonight is not just a party to kick off Pride Weekend,” she wrote on Instagram. At 10pm and midnight in Times Square, she continued, “you can watch a special video made by ME! Don’t miss it! Let’s POP the cheery on Pride with a bang.”
Madonna and Gomez have been building the buzz with a string of Instagram posts. “God Is Cuming…,” reads one from another. Another, from Gomez, boasts, “NYC we’re cumming.”
The pop legend is also auctioning a selection of sexy Polaroids, proceeds from which benefit The Ali Forney Center, Haus of Us, and The Door, three NYC-based organizations dedicated to creating safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ youth.
