Is Madonna a Hypocrite With Anti-Smoking Stance?

by at . Comments

Madonna is taking a stand against cigarette smoking, yet glamorizes smoking in her new music video for "Girl Gone Wild," setting off cries of hypocrisy.

The topic came up when The Queen of Pop appeared on Today and was grilled over her 15-year-old daughter Lourdes being caught smoking recently.

Madonna says she "wasn't very happy" about the Lourdes Leon picture, adding "I don't approve of anyone smoking cigarettes, most of all my daughter."

Well, except in the "Girl Gone Wild" video:

Pressed on the apparent hypocrisy of herself smoking seductively in the video, she says it was just an "accessory" and she doesn't smoke in real life.

That's very possible. She can use it as part of her video art form and have no interest in partaking, and certainly wish that her teenager daughter not.

However, its mere presence in the video may influence others, given that Madonna is one of the more glamorous, legendary performers of all time.

Well, at least before MDNA album sales tanked.

What do you think? Hypocritical? Or totally different because a music video is an art form and does not dictate how Madonna lives her personal life?
