Madonna’s next music video is rumored to be a tribute to Stonewall, drag queens and LGBTI rights.
Many believe the next video off the Madame X album will be a love letter to the LGBTI community.
Fans say there are three exciting reasons why Madonna is hinting at a LGBTI rights message for her next video.
Madonna at the Stonewall Inn
Madonna kicked off her 2019 with a surprise appearance at The Stonewall Inn in New York’s City on New Year’s Eve.
She also made an important speech at the iconic venue.

In March, promoters Murray and Peter Present slammed All Stars 4 co-winner Monét X Change.
They said she would be leaving the Haters Roast in order to appear in a ‘new Madonna video’.
Other queens revealed they had or others they knew had been asked to appear in the video.
And then, Madonna revealed she will release her next single on I Rise on 3 May. The empowering title seems to match with Madonna’s plans.
It’s known she’s been working with former collaborator, French producer Mirwais, on her new album. Much of it has been recorded in Portugal, where she and her kids have been based in recent months.
It’s her 14th studio album, since releasing Rebel Heart in 2015.
It was also confirmed Madonna will play two songs at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.
She will sing one song from her back catalogue and one from her upcoming album during the song contest’s grand finale on 18 May.
