Madonna raises funds for the trans community
His trans fight
Madonna added one more appointment to her tour “The Celebration Tour” in Nashville (Tennessee) to raise funds for organizations that defend the rights of trans people, after a law was approved in that state of the United States that prohibits shows of drag queens.
On March 3, the state of Tennessee became the first US territory to ban this type of “shows” in public and where they can be seen by minors, in addition to approving another rule that limits minors’ access to therapies gender change.
“The oppression of the LGBTQ+ community is not only unacceptable and inhumane, but it is creating an unsafe environment and making America a dangerous place for our most vulnerable citizens, especially trans women of color,” wrote the “Queen of Pop” on his Instagram account.
The singer called this new law that will take effect on July 1 “pathetic” and assured that she will dedicate her presentation in the city of Nashville, on December 22, to celebrating how “beautiful the queer community is” together with Christopher Caldwell , better known as Bob The Drag Queen.

Break up with Adidas
Sporting goods maker Adidas and American singer Beyoncé have agreed to end the sportswear and footwear collaboration that began in April 2019 because sales were lower than expected, according to Dow Jones. Beyoncé was also a creative partner for the brand, for which she developed new sneakers and sportswear.
The collaboration will end once Adidas pulls this year’s collections from Ivy Park, which in November 2018 Beyoncé bought outright from Topshop owner Phillip Green, with whom she launched the brand in 2016.
