Good old Madge lied to the Boy Scouts of America, telling them she needed a Boy Scout uniform for her son Rocco, and then wearing it to present Anderson Cooper with GLAAD's Vito Russo Award at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York on Saturday. Cooper was honored after a lengthy stay in a glass closet that culminated with his finally going public last year with his homosexuality.
Madonna tells Access Hollywood that she had to lie to the Boy Scouts, and that she doesn't approve of the organization's anti-gay stance. "Sue me," she says to the camera.
The award, named for film historian Vito Russo who died in 1990, recognizes an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality.
The GLAAD Media Awards actually happen in several cities at different times, and will arrive in San Francisco on May 11.
