Queen of Pop Madonna is royally under fire from critics – this time from sexual abuse victims and their supporters for what many are calling an ‘exaggerated use of analogies’ to rape.
Earlier this week the 60-year-old diva made headlines for a feature in the ‘New York Times’ magazine that saw her reflect over her illustrious career, including a recount of the leak of her 2015 album, ‘Rebel Heart’ (click here to read it). To describe the helplessness she felt at the time, she likened the experience to being raped.
Now, just days after its publishing, she’s taken to Instagram to slam the publication and the very interviewer (Vanessa Grigoriadis) who wrote the article and claims…you guessed it…the experience with the journalist made her feel raped.
Ay yi yi! More inside:
Taking to IG moments ago, Madge stated:
“Madame ❌ on the cover of N.Y.T. Magazine photographed by my dear friend @jr……….Also sharing my fav photo that never made it in, along with pre-shoot chat and a celebratory glass of wine 🍷 after many hours of work! To say that I was disappointed in the article would be an understatement-
It seems. You cant fix society
And its endless need to diminish,
Disparage or degrade that which they know is good. Especially string independent women. The journalist who wrote this article spent days and hours and months with me and was invited into a world which many people dont get to see, but chose to focus on trivial and superficial matters such as the ethnicity of my stand in or the fabric of my curtains and never ending comments about my age which would never have been mentioned had I been a MAN! Women have a really hard time being the champions of other women even if. they are posing as intellectual feminists.
Im sorry i spent 5 minutes with her. It makes me feel raped. And yes I’m allowed to use that analogy having been raped at the age of 19. Further proof that the venerable N.Y.T. Is one of the founding fathers of the Patriarchy. And I say—-DEATH TO THE PATRIARCHY woven deep into the fabric of Society. I will never stop fighting to eradicate it.”
