‘There is nothing synthetic about a soul!’ Madonna blasts Dolce And Gabbana; Fashion Duo ‘Apologizes’

‘There is nothing synthetic about a soul!’ Madonna blasts Dolce And Gabbana; Fashion Duo ‘Apologizes’

Dolce and Gabbana should “think” before they “speak” when expressing views about same-sex families and IVF, Madonna has declared in a swipe at the fashion duo.

The Rebel Heart singer is the latest celebrity to blast Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, after the fashion pair caused widespread offence by slamming “non-traditional” same-sex parents and branding children born through IVF as “synthetic”.

Sir Elton John, who has two sons with his husband David Furnish, called the pair “hateful”, and urged for a boycott of the clothing label. Celebrities including Matt Lucas, Sharon Stone and Courtney Love this week announced their support for a boycott. Victoria Beckham, a close friend of Sir Elton John and David Furnish, also tweeted her “love” for IVF babies.

Yesterday, Madonna, who was named the face of Dolce & Gabbana in 2009 and appeared in several advertising campaigns for them, made her feelings about the subject plain for all to see. The Queen of Pop took to Instagram where she posted a picture of a baby sat on her chest as she modeled for the designer brand.

“All babies contain a soul however they comes to this earth and their families,” she said. “There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below! Think before you speak #livingforlove.”

Meanwhile, in their latest attempt at backtracking, Dolce and Gabbana have claimed that they “love gay couples”. In a new interview with CNN, the fashion legends tried to repair the rift – after days in which they accused Sir Elton of being a “fascist” and refused to apologise.

Gabbana told the network: “We love gay couples… We are gay. We love gay adoption. We love everything. It’s just an express of my private point of view.

Dolce said: “I love the music of Elton John. Every people resolve everything by talk… we start to talk, the problem is resolved. Every people [has] freedom for choosing what they want. This for me is democracy. I respect you because you choose what you want. I respect me because I choose what I want… This just my point of private view.”

Gabbana added: “Boycott Dolce & Gabbana for what? They don’t think like you? This is correct? This is not correct. We are in 2015. This is like medieval. It’s not correct.”

    Seriously? Like seriously? This guys r trying so so hard nd it is super annoying! Your private point of view as a celebrity nd world figure should be expressed in d privacy of ur house or if worst in ur toilet! Once out, expect to b backlashed nd deal with it appropriately! Apologise! Apologise! U touched a raw nerve nd u ain’t going to b left untouched!
    I even wonder if dis dudes r gay! I feel they just came out as one to attract more sales just out of sentiment! Everybody is a suspect! No real gay dude who knows that d only way for them to have a child is either by IVF or adoption would utter such trash!

      Hello Sinnex.

      I understand that your Opinion differs from the Ton. I get it, some of us get it.
      Don’t just stomp your somewhat-outta-tune comments on this issue like Tonto does with her rants.
      You might not want to get married or have this Chemical dolls in the near future, it doesn’t and will never mean you should tramp your thoughts and opinions on the treadmills of those of us that want to.

      And no matter how hard/subtle you try, you can never be Chizzie.
      Call yourself to order bro because I’m beginning to think you’re like the dude that wrote an article out of boredom.

        lol…so because my opinion differs from the norm you’d call me Chizzie. How low can you go? Have I insulted anyone here before? Just give me an instance please. Who says I am not going to get married….at least not to a guy.
        Dude, I am Me. You need to get this into your thick skull.
        Who cares about anyone here.
        I am beginning to see things more clearly.
        At first, I was confused, but now it is all coming into perspective. I thought Chizzie and Gad were wrong all along. I have been asking myself what they did that made you lot attack them vehemently…now I know! So, because they decided to have a different opinion, you decided to call them names.
        Dude, I have a life. This is just a blog. If you don’t want me to comment, why don’t you come out plainly and say it. Stop beating around the bush, it is so beneath you.

        This attack is uncalled for. @ sinnex,if you understand the mind set of men you won’t lose sleep or be bothered with their words or actions. All these attacks are borne out of a feeling of inadequacy in the attackers. You are what they feel they can’t be. That’s why the attacks. If you want them to give you a break, don’t ever mention your bisexuality. Don’t ever talk of wanting to get married any day. It irks them. Become a member of team adoption or IVF not forgetting the “oh yes” posture as you have to toe their lines of argument at all times. This is what you have to do if you want to feel among but if you want to be real you have to develop a thick skin to the attacks or better still map out ways of ridiculing the abusers without necessarily using foul words.

        @Sinnex Pls do ignore anyone that comes after you.. Each time you make a comment here. Like Gad said. You are everything they wish to be “REAL”
        So what if you want see things from a different point of view? What if?
        this **you are trying to be Chizzie** comments is really getting me worked up. Who is Chizzie? Just a random that comes here and spit his opinion just like others.. So what is this Chizzie benchmark that is being thrown around **it sickens me**

        I have just one advise for you and this is not me kissing your ass.. **keep being yourself dude** **keep being real** it’s a scarce commodity on here and that’s what makes you unique (and why certain peoples feel threatened)

        @Gad you are one Real Ass MF.. You say it as you see it. You have a special way of capturing my inner thoughts and views on matters with every comments you make.

    Man o man, is the gay community insufferable or what?. People making their opinions known should NOT be treated with such hostility, whether you agree or not.

    It is one thing to say “I do not bliv in this or that”, it would be the same as saying “I do not bliv in God”, and it is another thing to be a total bigot like saying “Fags will burn in Hell”. They did NOT do the latter, they simply made their opinions known on what they believe in. They are entitled to have this opinion without all the sensationalism. Boycott D&G, for what exactly?

    Up till now I don’t understand people that are complaining that Elton boycotted d&g. The argument is simple.. D&g said something people did not like.. People reacted the way they wanted to.. How is any of what either sides did a crime. I don’t agree with d&g but I respect the fact that they can think what they like no matter how insensitive it appears to me. I Iams respect the fact that Elton can react however the fuck he wants. So if he doesn’t want to buy clothes from them anymore it’s his own money.. Not yours. Wait.. Why are we even arguing about this thing still. All of una like wahala.

    Teflondon, it usually takes a lot to get on my nerves but you seem to have a natural way of doing that. Pinky, you’re just gonna have to forgive me for what I’ll say next.

    Teflondon, no matter how much you try, you’ll never, NEVER be a quarter the man Pinky is or one-tenth the bitch Chizzie was. Stop trying too hard to seem like the one with the unpopular opinion here. If you don’t like KD the way it is, fucking get off the blog. Jeez! I just can’t deal with your idiocy because, whereas we all pondered as to whether Lord II’s idiocy was fake or real, your’s is clearly real. Get your fucking head outta your ass, nigger!

      Now, I am confused. The truth is that I have never been called bitchy before in my life. I don’t see myself as a bitch. If some people are cool with calling themselves bitches, good for them. I actually think it is demeaning and I consider it an insult.

      I don’t see anything wrong with Teflondon’s comments. He has has just been voicing his opinion, no matter how wrong it seems. I don’t know why anyone should get worked up.

      On serious note, how would this blog be like, if everyone has the same opinion? Won’t it be boring and monotonous?
      “We are here. We are queer. We are fab” For real? Being gay means we are different. When would people get it that we are all different. As in, we all have different mindset. Even straight people don’t agree on everything, so why should we?
      The only we have in common here is just our sexuality.
      Some people are claiming that freedom of speech doesn’t mean that we should all say what we feel. I decided to go back memory lane and check out the post about my encounter with a guy, I saw the hate those guys that are claiming that they are offended by dissenting opinion. Someone called me psychotic, another called me a murderer and one said I had a psychological problem. The funny thing is that it is those guys that see themselves as Mayors of this blog that really attacked me. If I was weak, I could have committed suicide.
      Now, why am I saying this, no one is perfect. We were not trained same way. We don’t have same ideals and perception.
      I am still yet to see why someone would decide to compare anyone with differing opinion to Chizzzie. For goodness sake, Chizzie…as in Chizzie. Gosh!!! I feel insulted. For goodness sake, who is Chizzie and what does he have anything to do with anything?
      You guys are looking for acceptance from the general public, yet, you cannot accept your kind. Is that not hypocritical?
      PP, I am not here to attack you or anything, but I believe you need to call people to order. The idea of attacking people instead of points is so annoying.
      Please, we are all here for fun. Nobody should carry KD for head like say na food.
