It’s what’s known as a Freudian slip.
In 1901, renowned psychologist Dr. Sigmund Freud defined a Freudian slip, or parapraxis, as what occurs when a person’s subconscious interferes with a person’s speech, memory or physical action, where it usually implies a repressed desire or worldview.
The biggest female pop star of the 1980s, Madonna, just made a Freudian slip. And you’ll never guess what Madonna has always thought of you until the coronavirus outbreak.
One of the only remarkably funny observations amid this global pandemic is witnessing how attention starved celebrities are now that we’re all quarantining.
You may have seen the viral video of “High School Musical 3” star Vanessa Hudgens who recently confessed that she didn’t mind the potential mass causalities during the coronavirus saying, “Til July sounds like a bunch of bullsh-t. I’m sorry. But like, it’s a virus. I get it. Like, I respect it, but at the same time, like, even if everybody gets it… like, yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible, but like, inevitable?”
Granted, Hudgens gave a half-hearted apology over her disgusting privileged comment but clearly she didn’t have anybody to talk to about these dark inner thoughts so she shared them on Twitter to her 38 million followers instead.
Another example; a group of celebrities including Gal Godot, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Natalie Portman, Jamie Dornan, Sia, Pedro Pascal, Zoë Kravitz and Sarah Silverman singing a cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” thinking for some obnoxious reason the rest of the world would relate to it.
It’s because they are starved for attention.
And former American pop star Madonna seems to be more starved than any of the aforementioned. https://offthewire.com/a-list-director-just-wished-the-worst-thing-imaginable-on-trump/
The “A League of Their Own” actress posted a video on social media sitting buck naked in a bathtub with rose pedals and had the audacity to say, “That’s the thing about COVID-19. It doesn’t care how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It’s the great equalizer and what’s terrible about is it what’s great about it. What’s terrible about it is that it’s made us all equal in many ways and what’s wonderful about is, is that it’s made us all equal in many ways.”
There’s a lot to unpack there.
First of all, everybody knows that a contagious virus can infect 99% of the population – the 1% being the rare exception of people who are immune – doesn’t care about the status of a person before they are infected because that’s obviously not how it works.
Madonna seems to imply celebrities should be immune to the virus because they are rich and famous. And if you didn’t think that’s what she was implying, then the latter point of her video that, “it’s made us all equal in many ways” definitely does. https://offthewire.com/actor-mandy-patinkin-says-trump-is-a-cancer-that-affects-the-world/
She says that it’s simultaneously both “what’s terrible” and “what’s wonderful” about it because Madonna has always thought she’s better than you – and this new coronavirus made her “just as human as you.”
That’s a level of self-righteous conceit, a God complex, that runs rampant through Hollywood. They all think they’re better than working class Americans.
She has since deleted the video but you know her publicist had to be furious about it.
Madonna also posted a bizarre video of her getting ready to cook some fried fish saying, “Come on! Go! Let’s go eats some fried fish, fried fish. Come on. Go! Let’s go eat some fried fish.”
We’re all going to get cabin fever, a little stir crazy, but these celebrities need to pump the brakes on their self-aggrandizing as if we’re so eager to hang onto every thought that pops into their absurd little minds.
