Madonna has posted a new twerking video where she looks demonic, as seen below. Madonna received backlash for her appearance at the Grammy Awards last week. However, she has been supported by fellow music legend, Shania Twain.
Shania Twain supports Madonna
Madonna took to the stage during Sunday night’s awards ceremony to introduce Sam Smith and Kim Petras as they performed their hit, Unholy. The pair’s show-stopping performance got the viewers to say more about Madonna’s face, with plenty taking to social media to question the cosmetic work she’s had done. The focus on Madonna’s face reignited conversations on the pressure women face to conform to society’s beauty standards.
After the backlash, Madonna herself took to social media to call out the hate she’d received. “Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny that permeates the world we live in,” she said. “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.”
Madonna went on: “I have never apologised 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.”
Madonna’s response was praised by fans and celebrity friends alike, including Man! I Feel Like A Woman singer Shania. “She [Madonna] didn’t seem to be too fazed – or referred to not being fazed – by criticism,” she told ITV News.
“I think that is her liberated spirit and she can just look however she wants to look. Yeah there is enough criticism in the world I think,” Shania continued. “It is good to be comfortable in your own skin whatever that is. That is certainly the way I am feeling anyway.”
The singer went on: “I am finally getting comfortable in my own skin – I am certainly not going to pay too much attention to criticism. I am not going to let that get in my way. Not now. Life is only getting shorter, right?”
