These days, novelty accounts are all the rage. In most cases, novelty accounts centered on celebrities are parodies that point out their flaws. But when it comes to world-renowned DJ The Black Madonna, her Twitter bot might actually be a form of flattery.
It’s no secret that The Black Madonna is one of the most outspoken voices in dance music. In keeping with Chicago house music’s socially progressive roots, she is often first to criticize politicians and expose misogyny in the music industry while championing LGBT rights.
