Madonna Says She Felt 'Raped' By New York Times Profile
Madonna has shared her thoughts on a New York Times Magazine profile about her – and she was NOT pleased.
Titled "Madonna At Sixty," the singer said in an Instagram post on Thursday that the story made her feel "raped."
"The journalist who wrote this article spent days and hours and months with me and was invited into a world which many people dont get to see, but chose to focus on trivial and superficial matters such as the ethnicity of my stand in or the fabric of my curtains and never ending comments about my age which would never have been mentioned had I been a MAN!" Madonna wrote.
"Women have a really hard time being the champions of other women even if. they are posing as intellectual feminists. Im sorry i spent 5 minutes with her. It makes me feel raped. And yes I’m allowed to use that analogy having been raped at the age of 19. Further proof that the venerable N.Y.T. Is one of the founding fathers of the Patriarchy. And I say – DEATH TO THE PATRIARCHY woven deep into the fabric of Society. I will never stop fighting to eradicate it."
The lengthy profile by Vanessa Grigoriadis includes praise for the singer, along with descriptors like "aging musicians" and "lonely," and phrases like "committed to making meaning rather than giving herself over to old-lady nihilism."
Madonna also took to social media yesterday to drop a teaser for her music video for "Dark Ballet," which dropped at midnight. "Dark Ballet" is the last of five songs to be released by Madonna from her upcoming album Madame X, slated to drop June 14th. The track follows previously released songs "Medellín," "Future," "Crave" and "I Rise."
