New York: Pop sensation Madonna has expressed her desire to be part of the boy scouts and wants the rules to be changed to let her in.

The 54-year-old singer arrived in a boy scout uniform at 24th annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to celebrate gay rights, reported New York Daily News.

"I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn`t let me join. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees."

"Listen, I wanna do for the community. But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys."

"I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and I think they should change their stupid rules," she added.

Madonna also presented an award to CNN journalist Anderson Cooper.
