Madonna is still Madonna, which means her Instagram feed is a parade of sexy pictures of her face and body. It should be old news by now, but apparently, censorship still manages to find the iconic musical artist. Instagram removed some of her recent pictures for featuring a nip slip, and she was enraged.
Madonna reposted the deleted pics, covering the nipples with some well-placed emojis, and complained about the stringent rules against nudity.
“I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification,” she captioned her edited pics. “The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed. It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple… Giving thanks that I have managed to maintain my sanity through four decades of censorship…… sexism……ageism and misogyny.”
The post attracted more attention than a normal sexy Madonna series, and it seems like rapper 50 Cent caught sight of it, because he made a series of posts about the pics, writing on one, “That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do ‘Like A Virgin’ at 63. She shot out, if she don’t get her old ass up.”
It’s not clear why 50 Cent cares at all about what Madonna is up to in her bedroom, but she saw his many comments on her body and had yet more to say on the subject.
“Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend,” she wrote in a story over a photo of them together years ago. “Now you have decided to talk smack about me! I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media…the least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult.”
“You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you’re my age!” she added.
50 Cent sort of apologized in a tweet he seems to have since deleted.
He said he doesn’t benefit from trashing Madonna in any way, which actually makes the whole thing more confusing. Why even start this mess?
