Madonna, who is an iconic multi-award-winning celebrity pop singer, was criticized for her appearance after she gave a speech at the Grammy awards this past Sunday night. Madonna commented on Instagram “caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny that permeates the world we live in.” But people were quick to criticize her looks. She is seen in this post at the Grammys with award winning Kim Petras and Sam Smith.
Her post read, “It was an honor for me to Introduce.
Kim Petras and Sam Smith at the Grammys. I wanted to give the last award, which was Album of the year, but I thought it was more important that I present the first trans- woman performing at the Grammys– a History making moment!! And on top of that she won a Grammy!! â™¥ï¸
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 By a press photographer that Would distort anyone’s face!!
Once again, I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world, we live in.
A world that refuses to celebrate women past the age of 45 And feels the need to punish her If she continues to be strong willed, hard-working, and adventurous.
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. I have been degraded by the 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 Beyonce “You-won’t break my soul”, I look forward to many more years of subversive behavior -pushing boundaries-Standing up to the patriarchy -and Most of all enjoying my life. Bow down bitches!

One poster commented, @mr_shillington “I think the issue that people have is that you’ve given in to misogyny and ageism by having so much surgery. It would have been more powerful to just age naturally and still do what you do. Now that would have been trailblazing. Getting filler and surgery and Botox is just following the crowd babe x”
Another person commented,
la_mj44 “People are not talking about your age or putting you down bc ur a womanðŸ™„ðŸ™„ðŸ™„ðŸ™„ cry me a river w that crapðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ they are talking bc you look utterly ridic and you look like an alien w that face of yours. It’s not artistic. It’s beyond hideous. You are not trailblazing anything like when you performed Like A Virgin for the first time. They are not criticizing your art, but how you have managed to phuck up ur face. Whatever happened to aging gracefully like so many other beautiful women of age?? It is what it is. You were such a beautiful woman. And that is what people are talking about. And I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE REPLIES DEFENDING HER. I WILL NOT BOTHER TO READ THEM SO DON’T WASTE YOUR TIMEðŸ˜”
“The issue isn’t the press or media. It’s that You refuse to allow yourself to Age gracefully. Whatever that looks like ðŸ˜” And for the platform You Do and have had it’s pretty disappointing for those of us girls who watched you be a power for woman now that We’re aging you present a false and altered version of Who You are. Which Feeds the ageism you claim to be helping. it doesn’t and isn’t. That suck.”
Now we see officially by Madonna, comments on this post have been limited.
