Here’s an Ethics Alarms post about a story from 2016 that takes on some new elements when considered in light of #MeToo and the Harvey Weinstein Ethics Train Wreck. I’m wondering if Madonna would do this today.
Let’s review the players, shall we?
This is Josephine Georgiou, Isn’t she pretty? She was 17 in 2016.
This is Madonna, performing on stage in Australia. during her2016 concert tour.
She was and is over-the -hill and has to be progressively more outrageous to try to justify her concert ticket prices. During the 2016 tour, she was repeatedly late, suspected of being drunk on stage, and generally erratic. Her enabling supporters attributed this to a messy divorce. Of course, for a professional, that is no excuse: if you can’t do the job, then don’t charge people for you to do it.
Here is Josephine with a friend before they attended Madonna’s concert in Brisbane. Note Josephine’s outfit.
Note the nipple rings.
Forget the friend, and no, I have no clue as to what Josephine was holding. Maybe they have very small flies in Australia….
Now here is Josephine with her Mom, Toni, who also was at the concert.
More about her later. OK, I think we’re ready now. Fasten your seat belts, it going to be a bumpy trip down memory lane. Here’s “Yes, Ethics Dunce Madonna Indeed Engaged in Sexual Assault On Stage In Australia” from March 19, 2016…
