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.
BET even had something to say about the performance and the network teased its own tribute for Prince for the upcoming BET Awards in June.
“Yeah we saw that. Don’t worry. We got you,” the teaser said.
The 48-year-old singer was presented with the Icon Award by her son and she broke down and apologized for her tears on stage.
“To try to perform that song without collapsing was big enough and then I turned around and I saw my son. As a mother, I really, through this whole process of our new life, wanted to be strong,” Celine told Entertainment Tonight. “I thought I was going to make it through the whole night without tears and show strength, and love won,” she said. “I just collapsed. I’m very thankful for the award and proud of my family so much.”
“You have to be strong, but I think it’s important as well to not hold everything,” Celine added. “I tried to hold it in front of my 5-year-old twins, but my 15-and-a-half year old beautiful son is old enough to understand. Even though I did not want to cry, he understands it’s okay because it is therapeutic and you can’t take so much pressure. You can take so much strength and weight on your shoulders, but sometimes you can’t control everything.”
“I’m not the first woman and I’m not the last one who will lose her husband,” she continued. “It’s hard, but my family is helping me through it. I hope I think people know that I don’t do music, I don’t do my passion and sing to win an award. It’s never been the number one goal. It’s to share moments with fans and the celebration of music itself.”
