Madonna Issues Response to Backlash Over Aretha Franklin Tribute at VMAs 2018

Madonna Issues Response to Backlash Over Aretha Franklin Tribute at VMAs 2018

Madonna has released a statement in response to the backlash over her tribute to the late Aretha Franklin at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I was asked to present video of the year by MTV! And then they asked me to share any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin! I shared a part of my journey and thanked Aretha for inspiring me along the way. I did not intend to do a tribute to her! That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the noise and tinsel of an award show. I could never do her justice in this context or environment,” Madonna posted on Instagram.

She continued, “Unfortunately most people have short attention spans, and are so quick to judge. I love Aretha! R.E.S.P.E.C.T. 🙏🏼.”

Viewers were slamming Madonna on social media over the speech as it spoke more about her life than Aretha‘s life and legacy.

Charlie Hunnam Lost a Massive Amount of Weight for Role in 'Papillon'

Charlie Hunnam Lost a Massive Amount of Weight for Role in 'Papillon'

Charlie Hunnam is opening up about the massive amount of weight he lost to play Henri “Papillon” Charrière opposite Rami Malek in their new movie Papillon.

“I did this two times in a row,” Charlie told ET of losing a lot of weight for a role. “I did a film called The Lost City of Zedd and I lost 40 pounds for that exactly. I went from 185 to 145 exactly. I was down to 145 again for this [role], but I think I probably started at 180 so maybe [I lost] like 35 pounds.”

Rami expressed some concern for his co-star, saying, “I mean it’s a very intense experience as it is. Filmmaking, and this one especially, it’s not the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. We weren’t out there going back to our trailers every two seconds,” Malek said. “It’s just out there sitting in the mud and hanging out and watching Charlie starve. So, I was a bit concerned, but he’s alright.”

The movie hits theaters on August 24.
