The internet was roiled after Madonna hinted that she was gay with a new post on social media.
The singer, 64, took part in a recent trend on TikTok in which a person declares themselves gay based on whether they get a successful shot on goal.
In a video posted Sunday, Madonna holds up a pink piece of underwear with the caption, “If I miss it, I’m gay!” is shown below.
After the Hung Up singer crumples his briefs into a ball, he throws them towards a trash can and misses the shot.
She then throws her hand in the air before walking away.
“Just saw Madonna come out good for her,” reads one fan’s supportive reply.
Elsewhere in the comments section, others similarly encouraged Madonna to express herself in this way.
“We are witnesses to her story,” wrote one follower, while another claimed they were not surprised by her statement: “Madonna has been an out bisexual for literally decades my boys.”

Others thought similarly.
Others accused her of simply seeking attention.
The star has been married twice; first to Sean Penn from 1985 to 1989 before being married to Guy Ritchie for eight years from 2000 to 2008.
Earlier this year, it was reported that she had split from boyfriend of three years, Ahlamalik Williams.
Long an icon of gay culture and an advocate for gay rights, Madonna has been highlighting the impact of the AIDS crisis long before many celebrities approached her.
