Madonna came under fire on Friday after posting photoshopped images of Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela with a black cord strung across their faces … this all in efforts to promote her new album, Rebel Heart. 

But after some hefty backlash, the pop star took to her Facebook page to apologize, saying that the images were not meant to be insulting or “racist.”

“I’m sorry. 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. NO. I’m saying they are Rebel Hearts too. And 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 also shared the same markings across the faces of other icons, including Jesus, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Princess Diana, John Lennon and Bob Marley.

“I would like to thank all my fans for recreating my album cover with the Rebel Heart ribbon on the faces of so many Great Hero’s,” she initially wrote. “It shows that you are also celebrating and in admiration of these great freedom fighters! When I repost these images i am saying YES! These people are all Rebel Hearts in one way or another from Martin Luther King to Jesus to Nelson Mandela to John Lennon. YES! Lets celebrate them! The world needs more people like them. I hope to one day accomplish. 1 100th of what these Rebel Hearts have accomplished. As I Said in a previous post “I walk in the footsteps of Giants” and i will continue to do so G*D willing. They are my guiding light. #rebelheart #livingforlove.”

Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation

Published

on

Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!

Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.

The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.

Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
