Earlier this month, Madonna was met with harsh criticism over her appearance at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
The icon—who was introducing Sam Smith, who is nonbinary, and Kim Petras, a trans woman, at the event—even took to Instagram to address those who took away from what should have been a monumental moment "about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim."
In her post, the singer vented:
"Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny that permeates the world we live in. 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."
"I have never apologized 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."
On Monday, Madonna took to Twitter to unapologetically troll the aforementioned ageists and misogynists.
The Queen of Pop posted a photo of herself with the message:
"Look how cute I am now that swelling from surgery has gone down."
She finished with 'Lol' and a 😂.
The seven-time Grammy winner's message was clear, and many applauded the iconic tweet.
A few even celebrated the icon by way of her own lyrics.
Madonna is set to embark on The Celebration Tour in July, appropriately named as the Queen is celebrating four decades of making hits. Many dates are already sold out, so you better act fast if you want to see the legend live!
