Madonna is speaking out to defend the tribute performance she gave for Prince at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

The 57-year-old entertainer took to her Instagram account to respond to critics who didn’t like the performance.

“Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to. Whatever your age Gender or skin Color. If you loved him and he inspired you then show it!!!! I love Prince 4 ever ’”️”🙏,” Madonna said.

“Deal with It!” she captioned another photo.

    Nothing to do with gender or race, it had to do with the performance being boring.

  • Tulipia

    She loves basking in the attention of his posthumous limelight, that’s for sure.

    From an old RS interview:
    “Madonna sniped in an interview that Prince was a “little troll,” and quipped in 1994 that he wouldn’t eat during a dinner date. “He was just sipping tea, very daintily,” Madonna said. “I have this theory about people who don’t eat. They annoy me.”

    Why does everyone have to be so judgemental.. I didn’t care for but I think it came from the heart. See she unlike most if not all of you actually knew Prince.

    Mo, your Prince Tribute was faaaaaaaaaaaaantastic !
    Prince was a GREAT ARTIST. He had a 3rd eye.
    (means: his eye-chakra was able 4 paranormal oscillations.)
    And that is what (not only) GREAT ARTISTS have in common:
    …..a…….***……3rd eye !….***
    And you have a 3rd eye too.
    Rita Ora has a 3rd eye too. Thus, she likes you.
    Although I´m not a singer, I think that I have a 3rd eye too !
    Eye think I´ve told enough about 3rd eyes !!!
