Madonna Issues Response to Backlash Over Aretha Franklin Tribute at VMAs 2018

0 Aretha Franklin | Celebrities News | Madonna No Comments


Madonna has released a statement in response to the backlash over her tribute to the late Aretha Franklin at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I was asked to present video of the year by MTV! And then they asked me to share any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin! I shared a part of my journey and thanked Aretha for inspiring me along the way. I did not intend to do a tribute to her! That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the noise and tinsel of an award show. I could never do her justice in this context or environment,” Madonna posted on Instagram.

She continued, “Unfortunately most people have short attention spans, and are so quick to judge. I love Aretha! R.E.S.P.E.C.T. 🙏🏼.”

Viewers were slamming Madonna on social media over the speech as it spoke more about her life than Aretha‘s life and legacy.

Ariana Grande has made her first public appearance in six months!

The 24-year-old “Side to Side” singer (who is hopefully dropping new music soon!) and her boyfriend, 26-year-old rapper Mac Miller, were spotted holding hands while stepping out for Madonna‘s Oscars Party on Sunday night (March 4) in Los Angeles.

Ariana looked glam in a feathered black mini dress and thigh-high black boots, pulling back her platinum blonde locks into a sleek ‘do, while Mac looked dapper in his black and white tux.

The couple also showed some PDA in some cute photobooth pics shared by their pals and Instagram stars Kiyan and Alexa Luria. Check it out below!

We’re glad to see Ariana feeling better after she had to cancel her 2018 BRIT Awards appearance last month.

Her last public appearance was at a benefit concert in Charlottesville, Va., back in September 2017.

10+ pictures inside of Ariana Grande and Mac Miller at the party…
