Madonna blasts 50 Cent for “fake apology”

Madonna has blasted 50 Cent on social media after his comments about her age.

The iconic singer shared a series of racy snaps on Instagram last month of her on a bed in lingerie. Fiddy then re-posted one of the pictures alongside the caption, “Yo this is the funniest shit! LOL. That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do like a virgin at 63. she shot out, if she don’t get her old ass up. LMFAO.”

She then fired back, “I guess your new career is getting attention while trying to humiliate others. The least elevated choice you could make as an artist or an adult. You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you are my age!”

The rapper then apologised and said, “I did not intend to hurt your feelings”. He also pleaded with Madonna to accept his apology, which she has called “fake” in her delayed response.

“You were trying to shame me,” Madonna said in a clip uploaded to Instagram. “Your apology is fake, it’s bullshit and it’s not valid,” she added.

“Number two, an apology is not valid if you don’t know what you’re apologising for. What you should be apologising for is your misogynistic, sexist, ageist behaviour and remarks.”

Madge continued, “Number three, you didn’t hurt my feelings, because I didn’t take it personally. I could never take it personally because you’re not coming from an enlightened place. Number four, you say you’re not benefiting from it. Of course you’re benefiting from it, that is what social media is all about.”

She then concluded, “Finally, I just want to say, I forgive you. I hope that one day, you wake up and see a different point of view. I wish you all the best.”
