PUBLIC OPINION > Madonna's Nipple Flash Was Just Sad
Living 2012/06/11 22:34:21
We haven't seen a wardrobe malfunction like this since that fateful Super Bowl on February 1, 2004. Oh, we remember that day well... But enough of the past. Madonna's nip-slip wasn't in front of millions of people, but it wasn't exactly a malfunction either. The 53-year-old intentionally showed off her right nipple during a concert in Istanbul on Saturday. No one is sure why. Publicity, probably. We asked the public if it was sexy or just... sad.
Um. No. Once upon a time, like 25 years ago, maybe she could have gotten away with it. Maybe. But a 53-year-old woman should not be slipping a nip to an unsuspecting crowd no matter how many times she's been called a sex symbol. You don't see George Clooney yanking off his trousers for no reason at political rallies. She's already looking a little bit desperate with all that talk against Lady Gaga. This is just depressing.
Women Don't Want to See It
Obviously men are going to be a little more enthusiastic about anything with the phrase "flashes her nipple," but the lack of female support was staggering. Only 4% of female voters thought Madonna's intentional nipple slip could possibly be considered "sexy." So much for publicity. It's not like a bunch of dudes are about to buy a Madonna album over this.
Liberals Are a Little Intrigued
Naturally, this had some political implications as well, though it was probably less political than it was simply a matter of taste. Conservatives were expectedly turned off by this vulgar display of trivial titillation, while liberals were a little more willing to embrace it. But the moral of the story is, overall, both percents were abysmal.
We did notice one particularly odd correlation in the relationship breakdown. Married people were a good deal more likely to thing the slip was sexy. We didn't see much of a correlation in age, so we can't really pin it on that, but both singles and voters in unmarried relationships were noticeably less impressed with Madonna's nipple. Again, probably her target demographic.
