Today’s music industry is so predictable. Take Madonna’s latest album that was not-so-well received by both critics and fans. This of course means that the sales and downloads are down and that something has to be done.
Queue Maddona and her fake controversies. The whole started with the leaking of her tracks, that she described as “rape” and “terrorism”, spitting in the face of actual victims of these vicious acts.
What followed can only be described as an insult: she compared herself with such legends as Bob Marley, Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon and Princess Diana. Really Madonna?
After being called out by media she “apologized” via social media:
Taken from Madonna’s Facebook.
“I would like to thank all my fans for recreating my album cover with the Rebel Heart ribbon on the faces of so many Great Hero’s. It shows that you are also celebrating and in admiration of these great freedom fighters! When I repost these images i am saying YES! These people are all Rebel Hearts in one way or another from Martin Luther King to Jesus to Nelson Mandela to John Lennon. YES! Lets celebrate them! The world needs more people like them. I hope to one day accomplish. 1 100th of what these Rebel Hearts have accomplished. As I Said in a previous post “I walk in the footsteps of Giants” and i will continue to do so G*D willing.
“I’m sorry I’m not comparing my self to anyone
I’m admiring and acknowledging there Rebel Hearts
This is niether a crime or an insult or racist!
I also did it with Michael jaclson and frida khalo and marilyn monroe
Am I saying I am them
I’m saying they are Rebel Hearts too.
I didn’t do it
My fans did
And I just re posted those photos
My fans aren’t racist either
If they put me in the same category as these other people
Thank you. I’m very flattered and I hope one day to live up to 1 100th of what those people accomplished.”
