Global music icon, Madonna, has reacted an in-depth profile written about her by the New York Times.
The New York Times Magazine feature “Madonna at Sixty” by “intellectual feminist” Vanessa Grigoriadis, is an all-access retrospective of the iconic entertainer’s career that tries to make sense of Madonna’s place in the evolving music industry.
For Madonna, however, the magazine focuses a lot on her age including “trivial and superficial matters” which she said made her “feel raped,”.i
Stating some of the things wouldn’t have been mentioned if she was a man, Madonna said the newspaper “is one of the founding fathers of the Patriarchy.”
“The sex bomb at 60 was slightly less than bionic…”. At another point, she writes, “I realized I couldn’t ask her about anything as personal as menopause, but I had to broach the topic of aging,” the profile reads.
In response, Madonna took to Instagram.
“To say that I was disappointed in the article would be an understatement-It seems. You can’t fix society And its endless need to diminish, Disparage or degrade that which they know is good, she wrote in parts.
Further, she said: “Especially strong independent women. The journalist who wrote this article spent days and hours and months with me and was invited into a world which many people don’t 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! Women have a really hard time being the champions of other women even if. they are posing as intellectual feminists.”
