Madonna is more than happy to forgive, but she doesn’t forget. She took to Instagram to slam 50 Cent‘s “fake apology”. The only thing is, she did so sporting a very distracting filter that had something wacky going on with the eyes.
While the “Like A Virgin” singer and the rapper have gone back many years, 50 made certain uncalled-for remarks on Madonna’s recent bedroom pictures. And Madonna is not happy.
Madonna’s Rant Against Instagram, First
Madonna’s management took it up with Instagram before reposting the pictures, and this is what the 63-year-old diva had to say about it.
“I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification… The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed. It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple. As if that is the only part of a woman’s anatomy that could be sexualized. The nipple that nourishes the baby!”
While some of the trolls arose to the occasion to call her pictures “extremely sexual” and even “tacky”, there were some adoring fans in there as well. One commented, “Speak queen 👑 there is reason and pure sentiment behind everything you’ve done and continue to do as the timeless artist you are.”
50 Cent Mocked Her, Then Apologized

These are the pictures that Madonna shared, and if you swipe right, the last one is off her under the bed, with her legs sticking out. 50 Cent apparently found this picture hilarious, and shared it on his Instagram feel, mocking Madonna. He wrote, “Yo this is the funniest s**! 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 a** up. LMFAO.”
Not all of his fans were impressed with his humor, and Madonna got back soon enough, with a picture of them together, writing, “Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend. Now you have decided to talk smack about me. I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media. The least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult. You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you are my age! Too bad there are no sour grape emogees,” said the diva.
So 50 cent went ahead and issued an apology, without sounding terribly apologetic about it. Wrote the 46-year-olf rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson, “I must have hurt Madonna feelings, she went and dug up an old MTV photo from 03.”
He then gave a garbled apology on Twitter, writing, “ok Im sorry i did not intend to hurt your feelings.I don’t benefit from this in anyway i said what i thought when i saw the picture because of where i had seen it before i hope you accept my apology,” the “candy shop” rapper concluded.
Madonna Called It A Fake Apology
Madonna took her time to respond to “50 Cents response to my response to his comments” because she had better things to do. But she did so with a fake Instagram filter, setting the mood to respond to 50 Cents “fake apology”.
Said the “Like A Prayer” singer, that what 50 Cent wrote was a bid to shame and humiliate her. She slammed him, saying, “Yeah, your apology is fake. It’s bulls*** and it’s not valid. Let me just hit those four, five points about your apology being invalid.”
First, Madonna spoke about how it was not tough to find footage of him with her. Then she said, “an apology is not valid if you don’t know what you’re apologizing for. What you should be apologizing for are your misogynistic, sexist, ageist behavior and remarks.” She also went on to say how his remarks did not hurt her because she never took anything personally and also how 50 Cent should not kid himself about “benefitting” from being on social media.
But she saved the best for last, saying, “I forgive you and I hope that one day you wake up and see a different point of view. I wish you all the best. That’s it, okay?”
Here’s her POV.
