Madonna Tries To Clear The Air After Making Aretha Franklin Tribute About Herself At MTV VMA’s

After receiving quite the backlash on social media last night, The Material Girl, Madonna, came forward with a statement on her Instagram account about the “misunderstanding” of how she made the Aretha Franklin Tribute all about herself on the telecast of the 2018 MTV VMA’s from Radio City Music Hall in New York City,

The VMA’s wanted to acknowledge the Queen of Soul’s passing on the show, and Madonna expressed after being lambasted by the media and the fans: “Just to clarify: 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.  Unfortunately most people have short attention spans, and are so quick to judge. I love Aretha! R.E.S.P.E.C.T. 🙏🏼. ”

When Madonna took to the VMA stage, she spoke of her difficult and humble beginnings in show business relating: “Aretha Louise Franklin changed the course of my life. I left Detroit when I was 18, $35 in my pocket. My dream was to make it as a professional dancer. After years of struggling and being broke, I decided to go to auditions for musical theater.   I had no training or dreams of ever becoming a singer but I went for it. I got cut and rejected from every audition — not tall enough, not blend-in enough, not 12-octave-range enough, not pretty enough. Not enough.   And then one day a French disco sensation was looking for backup singers and dancers for his world tour. I thought, ‘Why not? The worst that can happen is I can go back to getting robbed, held at gunpoint and being mistaken for a prostitute in my third-floor walk-up that was also a crackhouse.’ That’s right, I’m a ‘Rebel Heart’.  So I showed up for the audition and two very large French record producers sat in the empty theater, daring me to be amazing. The dance audition went well. Then they asked me if I had sheet music and a song prepared. I panicked. I had overlooked this important part of the audition process.  They looked over at the pianist, he shook his head. ‘I don’t need sheet music,’ I said, ‘I know every word. I know the song by heart, I will sing it a cappella.’ I could see that they did not take me seriously — and why should they? Some skinny-ass white girl is going to come up here and belt out a song by one of the greatest soul singers that ever lived? And a cappella … I said, ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna.’ No, I didn’t, I didn’t say that. ‘Cause I wasn’t Madonna yet. I don’t know who I was. I don’t know what I said, I don’t know what came over me.”

Then to tie it all back to Aretha and the impact she had on her, Madonna ended with:  “So you’re probably all wondering why I’m telling you this story. There’s a connection, because none of this would’ve happened — could’ve 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, in this room tonight, and I want to thank you, Aretha, for empowering all of us. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Long live the queen.”

You can watch the Aretha tribute via Madonna from last night’s VMA’s below.  What did you think of it? Should the producers have done something else ,and had a few singers salute the legendary singer who died a few days ago, or was it just too short of a time for them to properly pay homage to her, and since Madonna was scheduled to present the last award, tying her story to Franklin was the only way they could do it?

BIG BROTHER Recap: Faysal Flops As HOH

After last week’s fifth blindside against FOUTTE … yes, we said “fifth,” Rockstar was sent packing.  The cards were stacked against her as it was during her BFF Haleigh’s HOH and for accidentally giving Tyler the answer in the veto ceremony.  All of this lead up to last night’s episode that gave us a new HOH!

The show started out with an intense endurance competition that had all of the remaining houseguests hungry for the power. It was an intense with Scottie, Faysal, and Tyler in the lead, but Faysal eventually came out on top. Scottie, Haleigh, and JC all felt comfortable with this win – specifically JC because he was sure he could control his nominations.

With Faysal in power, he told Haleigh that he would be targeting the men in the house after they have proven to be backstabbing him over and over again. Level 6, on the other hand, felt in danger. So, they came up with a plan to pin the only vote to save Rockstar on Brett, even though it was Scottie who had really saved her. Faysal asked while in his HOH room, who was the one vote to save Rockstar? Both Brett and Scottie raised their hands with Kaycee acting as if she thought Scottie saved her. It was a last minute plan in hopes to get Faysal to nominate Scottie.

Haleigh was worried that Faysal would go through with nominating Scottie. She was desperate to convince him otherwise, because she believed he was on their side. However, JC was in his ear telling him the complete opposite to save Level 6 (which could backfire considering he’s unaware of the true alliance that may potentially send him packing later in the game).

As the HOH nomination came around, Faysal went with his gut and nominated Brett and Scottie. The members of Level 6 secretly laughed at his poor judgment; while Scottie was shocked by this betrayal.

What did you think of Faysal’s nominations? Who are you hoping wins the Power of Veto? Share your theories in the comment section below, and find out Wednesday night at 8/7 on CBS!
