Madonna has offered her opinion on the Dolce And Gabbana controversy and firmly supports Elton John's views. The controversy stems from a comment made by designer Domenico Dolce in an interview in an Italian magazine, Panorama. In the interview, Dolce described children born by IVF as "synthetic babies". The March issue of the magazine was released on 12th March but the backlash against the duo continues with many celebrities and LGBT groups calling for a boycott of the label and protesters picketing D&G stores.

"You are born and you have a father and a mother. Or at least it should be like this, that's why I am not convinced by chemical children, synthetic babies, wombs for rent," Dolce said in the interview. Dolce further implied there will be mental health repercussions for children born by IVF as "psychiatrists are not ready to confront the effects of this experimentation."

The backlash began when Elton John and leading LGBT groups called for a boycott of D&G. 67-year-old John, who has two children by IVF with his husband, David Furnish, posted a lengthy comment on Instagram in which he challenged Dolce's views and called for a boycott. 

"How dare you refer to my beautiful children as "synthetic". And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF - a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana," John wrote on Instagram on 15th March. 

Dolce and Gabbana issued a statement soon after John's highly publicised comments, backtracking on their interview. Dolce stated his own experience, growing up in a family with straight parents, had influenced his comments but he claimed he could "understand different ones".
