Madonna slammed her once ‘friend’ to 50 Cent after mocking gorgeous photos the singer posted of herself online.
Last week, the “Like a Virgin” hitmaker posted a series of photos on Instagram that showed her posing topless in leather and fishnet in the bedroom. In one photo, Madonna was posed partially under a bed with fishnets and a pair of stellar heels.
Shortly after the photos were uploaded, 50 Cent mocked the photo on his Instagram, suggesting she was too old to post the risky photos. Rapper “In da Club” wrote that the picture was the “funniest shit” he had seen as she “tried to act like a virgin at 63”.
50 Cent also posted a photoshopped version of the photo, comparing Madonna to the Wicked Witch of the East, and shared a photo of someone else recreating Madonna’s pose. He has since deleted the messages.
Madonna called the rapper for talking about “smack about me” on her Instagram Stories, sharing a photo of herself posing affectionately with 50 Cent from 2003 on her Instagram Stories. She also called him out to “pretend to be my friend” before claiming that her “new career” is “humiliating” others online.
“I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media,” the singer wrote. “The least choice you can make as an artist and as an adult.”
She continued: “[You’re] just jealous you won’t look as good as me or you won’t have as much fun when you’re my age! Too bad there aren’t any sour grape emojees.
50 Cent has since shared a self-righteous apology on Twitter. He wrote that he realized he “must have hurt Madonna’s feelings” after he “dug up” the “old MTV photo,” which she shared in her Instagram Stories.
“Ok, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you,” the rapper wrote. “I’m not enjoying it anyway, I’m sad about what I thought when I saw the picture because of where I had seen it before, hope you will accept my apologies . “

Besides calling the rapper “Candy Shop,” Madonna also posted clips on her stories where she shared a message of self-confidence to her followers.
The singer, using a Yoda filter, said she liked “the way I look” despite the fact “there are those who find it hard to appreciate people and things that are different”.
She continued, “And they try to shame me or humiliate me or make me feel less than because I’m not like everyone else.
“But actually, I treasure my uniqueness, and I got stronger because to be unique is to be rare.”
