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.”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!



Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
