Madonna has reached out to her 18.6 million Instagram followers with a heartfelt plea.
The 64-year-old superstar has been turning heads in recent weeks for a series of risqué images – and they have seemingly divided her fans.
Some of her posts have attracted less than positive comments, with some describing the images as “embarrassing” or “disturbing”.
But now Madonna is speaking out following the online abuse.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, the Material Girl star shared a picture of herself and wrote: “Stop bullying Madonna for enjoying her life.” It comes after the singer seemingly came out as gay in a playful TikTok video last month.
Taking to the social media platform, the pop icon posted a video which saw her attempting to tackle a viral trend. In the bizarre video, Madonna could be seen launching a pair of bright pink knickers into her bathroom bin, before intentionally missing.
The songstress included the caption: “If I miss, I’m Gay”. Unphased by her unsuccessful knicker-throwing, Madonna triumphantly posed for the camera with one arm on her waist, before twirling in the opposite direction.
Confused fans raced to the comment section, with one baffled fan writing: “Did Madonna just come out? And I’m witnessing it in real time??,” whilst a second quizzed: “WHAT IS HAPPENING”. Other fans raced to rally behind the Like A Virgin hitmaker, with one writing: “She is living her life!! Yessss,” and a second noting: “I’m so glad right now”.
Madonna’s social media update followed a surprising YouTube video in which the star answered 50 questions about everything from her career to her love life and past regrets.
The mother-of-six absolutely did not hold back, and shockingly revealed that some of her regrets included not one but both of her marriages.
The shocking revelation came when the interviewer, a digital voice, asked about a life decision that “wasn’t the best idea.” In reply, Madonna boldly said: “Getting married. Both times!”
