‘Whatever she does, everyone else follows’ – a comment lent by the Queen Bey herself in reference to the Queen of Pop Madonna.
The two music royals have made no secret of their mutual respect for each other over the years, but it appears the latter may have been a bit too presumptuous with the extent of said respect when she took to Instagram to upload a photoshopped image of Beyonce and Jay Z from their most recent ‘Apeshi*t’ music video.
In the real image the husband-and-wife team are admiring some of the centuries old art exhibits featured in the world famous Parisian museum The Louvre, but in the edited image they are instead admiring Madge’s (legendary) albums. With a caption that read ‘learning from the master,’ her suggestion set off a firestorm of ongoing controversy that has left the ‘Like a Prayer’ performer in need of just that.
