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.

Madonna Pays Tribute to Aretha Franklin at VMAs 2018 by Telling Her Audition Story

Madonna appears on stage to pay tribute to the late Aretha Franklin at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards held at Radio City Music Hall on Monday (August 20) in New York City.

The legendary entertainer was at the event to present the award for Video of the Year and she also gave a speech about singing an Aretha song at an audition before becoming a star.

Madonna decided to sing “Natural Woman” at the audition and she didn’t get the role, but the producers wanted to fly her to Paris to make her a star. She ended up leaving Paris as she didn’t think she earned the opportunity yet.

“There is a connection!” Madonna said after telling the long story. “Because none of this would have happened, could have happened without our Lady of Soul. She led me to where I am today. And I know she influenced so many people in this house tonight. I want to thank you, Aretha, for empowering all of us. R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”
