Madonna may have apologized for using photoshopped images of Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr and Princess Diana to promote her new album, “Rebel Heart”, but she is also defending her choice on Facebook. Madonna received a ton of backlash when the images ended up on her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts and has not removed them. The images are similar to her album cover, with just an image of her head with a thin black cords around her face. Now we must add that Madonna did not edit the photos, her fans did, but she did repost them to all her accounts.
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.” – Madonna
