“Bow down b*tches!” Madonna Slams Ageist Trolls Online

by eyesonhollywood
Instead of focusing on what actually happened at the Grammys, the masses are instead choosing to focus on the appearance of one of the greatest hitmakers of all time: Madonna.

The singer was in charge of introducing to the stage Kim Petras and Sam Smith, who wore dazzling red costumes to receive the award for their hit song “Unholy” live on stage. The duo took home a Grammy for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” making Petras the first transgender woman to win a Grammy. Madonna, 64, shared online that she was disappointed with the way audiences chose to focus on hating her looks instead of celebrating the monumental landmark.

The “Material Girl” singer took to Instagram to share her anger. “Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech, which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim, many people chose to only talk about close-up photos of me taken with a long lens camera … that would distort anyone’s face…I have been degraded by media since the beginning of my career but I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come. In the words of Beyoncé, ‘You won’t break my soul.’”

Over the years, Madonna has been accused of extensive plastic surgery. However, she flames back against such accusations with comments like, “Desperately seeking no one’s approval … Entitled to free agency over my body like everyone else,” and “I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way that I look or dress and I’m not going to start.”
