“It’s not so much about receiving this award as it is having this opportunity to stand before you and say thank you,” Madonna said at the end of her speech. “Not only to the people who have loved and supported me along the way, you have no idea…you have no idea how much your support means. But to the doubters and naysayers and everyone who gave me hell and said I could not, that I would not or I must not – your resistance made me stronger, made me push harder, made me the fighter that I am today. It made me the woman that I am today. So thank you.”

Lady Gaga Praises Madonna on Twitter, Fans React

Lady Gaga took to Twitter to praise Madonna for her speech at the Billboard Women In Music 2016 Luncheon, which was televised last night.

“your speech at the Billboard Music Awards was inspiring. You’re so brave & strong. Thanks for being that for us girls we need that.,” Gaga tweeted at Madonna.

Fans began freaking out because there have been feud rumors between Madonna and Gaga for years.

“The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs,” Madonna told Rolling Stone last year. “It’s got nothing to do with ‘she’s taking my crown’ or ‘she’s in some space of mine.’ She has her thing. I do think she’s a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue.”

“I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna … she’s a nice lady,” Gaga said back in October on the “Beats 1” radio show. “And she’s had a fantastic, huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time. But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.”

Madonna Says She Has Friends Who Support Trump, Reveals Their Reasoning

Madonna is opening up about her thoughts on the election and her friends who support Donald Trump in a candid new interview with Billboard.

The 58-year-old entertainer is the magazine’s Woman of the Year and she talks about ageism in the industry as well. Check it out:

On the outcome of the election: “It felt like someone died. It felt like a ­combination of the heartbreak and betrayal you feel when someone you love more than anything leaves you, and also a death. I feel that way every morning; I wake up and say, ‘Oh, wait, Donald Trump is still the president,’ and it wasn’t a bad dream that I had. It feels like women betrayed us. The percentage of women who voted for Trump was insanely high.”

On why women voted for Trump: “Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external. A lot of it has do with jealousy and some sort of tribal inability to accept that one of their kind could lead a nation.”

On what her friends who support Trump said: “That they would rather have a successful businessman running the country than a woman who lies. Just absurd. But people don’t have faith in government as we know it. We live in a country that’s run by ­bankers. In a way, it makes sense that Donald Trump is the president. Because money rules. Not intelligence, not experience, not a moral compass, not the ability to make wise ­decisions, not the ability to think of the future of the human race.”
