“I’m sorry. I’m not comparing my self to anyone. I’m admiring and acknowledging there (sic) Rebel Hearts. This is niether (sic) a crime or an insult or racist! I also did it with Michael Jackson (sic) and Frida Khalo (sic) and Marilyn Monroe,” the 56-year-old entertainer wrote in a statement.
She added, “Am I say I am them, NO. I’m saying they are Rebel Hearts too. And I didn’t do it, my fans did. And I just re-posted those photos. My fans aren’t racist either. If they put me in the same category as those other people, Thank you. I’m very flattered and I hope one day to live up to 1 100th of what those people accomplished.”
