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

Courtesy?MTV

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?

Steven Tyler was there to. Those two should have done a tribute to Glen Miller!

Madonna is nothing if not media savvy, but I think this is much ado about very little. She wasn’t assigned a tribute segment, and she treated Aretha respectfully. If you ask me, far more disrespect is being offered by Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, and God knows who’s to come, with these shrill, clueless vocal “tributes”. Certain artists can’t be bested and Aretha is one of them. Limit your tributes to spoken remarks, please!

Hi, Soaphound, I agree ….all of them think they are bigger than life……however, Madonna’s ego is insidious. I will admit that Madonna did revolutionaze the music industry, not so much because of her voice but more because of the ‘shock’ syndrome, as my mother calls it……she was, herself, prey to Madonna’s rah-rah-rah—my mother worshipped her!! I truly think she should shut her mouth….they all should. Suddenly, Hollywood has become the go-to-place for knowledge and, integrity and savoir-faire….where only a small percentage are academically on the ball. Surprisingly enough, those that have a modicum of introspective knowledge and higher education are… Read more »

Well said, CeeCeeGirl! I’m so tired of all the pontificating and politicizing that has become de rigueur for these self-congratulatory egomaniacs at every darn awards show. It’s beyond boring and boorish….but totally predictible. No wonder the ratings continue to plunge…

I have not watched any award show since forever……well, you know since when, mia bella.
I am not talking about the politicians, here, Shay….I am talking about those who know not what they say.
I like listening to what Schumer has to say, for example. I WANT, and welcome differences of opinions from those who know their stuff…..My mind is open….I crave diversity.
….not some street punks dresses as Ninjas who have no idea what Fascism, Socialism, Marxism or Communism mean…..but act up like spoiled kids just because: rebels without a cause…..this is how I look upon and perceive Hollywood.

Totally agree with everything you said here Celia. As Patty Labelle put it “Madonna was lucky”. And yes, Hollywood are the biggest hypocrites, calling for things like gun control when they always have armed guards, live in gated communities/mansions, etc.

Hey Blake; Well, I think there’s a difference between armed, trained guards who are hired for their services to protect against loons who try to get up close and personal to people in the public eye, including “Hollywood”… and putting guns into the hands of everyone who thinks it’s his/her 2nd amendment right with no concern of the mental, criminal, history of the owner. Gun shows? Buying guns on the internet? The gun shopping network? Please… That’s one of the things much of Hollywood does right; using their voice and influence for charity events, fundraisers, and bringing awareness to the… Read more »

Rebecca, the right to bear arms is in the constitution. If people like Mollie Tibbetts and Katie Steinle were armed they would have had a better chance at defending themselves and being alive. And taking away gun rights does not keep them out of the hands of criminals, same as drugs, they’ll always find a way to get one. Chicago is a gun free city and the murder rate is crazy high there and has been for years now. And you think it’s okay that celebrities can have hired security with guns, but not law abiding, tax paying American citizens?… Read more »

First: There was no need for you or anyone esle to make this a political left/right/Hollywood debate. Comments were requested about Madonna’s “tribute”; not what you think of “liberal” Hollywood. But, no, it had to spiral into that overused whine and that whole accusatory spin that the right (which I find soooo wrong) likes to spew.

Thank you, Blake! (And CeeCee, too….) Yes, hypocrisy thy name is Hollywood! Not only do the inhabitants display a “do as I say, not as I do,” mentality, but they think it’s their divine right to dictate to the rest of the country (and world) how to live. Anyone who is a legal, law-abiding U.S. citizen with proper mental capabilities deserves the right to bear arms in order to protect themselves, and it’s especially important in this increasingly dangerous day and age for women to have this option if they so choose. I was just thinking today that it’s a… Read more »

@Blake…Also, per your comments regarding the blatant hypocrisy of those who surround themselves with protective barriers, yet at the same time, condemn those of us who want to likewise protect our country, I have to ask: You don’t suppose that the much-beloved ranch where McCain drew his last vengeful breath and authored his scathing Trump-bashing “wall manifesto,” has its own system of gates, fences or other security measures installed as means of keeping away the “undesirables,” do you?

Shay and Blake…Oh that everyone who had a gun was law-abiding with “proper” mental capabilities. But they are not. Nor could the founders fast forward to know how their muskets would advance into what’s available now. I agree the person who killed Mollie is garbage. But why why do you think the “left”, whatever that means to you, would want to be more lenient with him? And since this article was partly about Aretha, from what I know of her she was more left leaning. and a pop star/celebrity type. But still admired. Quite frankly if I’m out jogging the… Read more »

@Rose….Thank you for your reply…Your last sentence said it all in a nutshell: “The black market would always be there.” Indeed! If the gun control advocates have their druthers, firearms would be forcibly removed from the hands of the “good people,” aka, responsible, law-abiding owners, but would do nothing to take them from those of the “bad people,” aka, criminals, since most don’t legally obtain their weaponry anyway. And given the latter are the ones who generally are using their guns to kill others and perpetrate violence, that sort of negates the supposed argument for confiscating legal firearms in the… Read more »

Hi Shay, What a story when it is in your own neighborhood. So glad to hear her husband was able to stop the intruder. But with the proliferation of guns, ease of purchase, and how they have been used irresponsibly and with criminal intent, I’m afraid I will never be okay with guns of any kind except with military and law enforcement. And it’s everywhere. I have been visiting my son and grandson this summer near what has been called Toronto the Good. And I guess it was once. But now there seem to be a lot of random/targeted shootings,… Read more »

@Rose…Since you mentioned Toronto, I have to say that I did think of you when news of the numerous reports of gun violence broke out earlier this month, and I hoped you and yours were alright. It struck me as particularly ironic that a country renown for its own gun-control measures was facing much the same fate as our own Chicago, a famously “gun-free zone” city. Apparently, the criminals were not aware of such policies in either locale! As for the firearms being smuggled in from the States to Canada, I have to ask if the same situation is not… Read more »

I didn’t know Canada was renown for it’s gun control measures. But since all of the gun violence, a least there is now a call to have hand-guns outlawed in Toronto. Instead of token words in the States, and no gun control action. In one recent gang arrest they were caught with, I think, about 60 handguns the looked like a cross between popsicles and a squirt gun amongst other lethal guns. The “popsicles” were smuggled in from Florida, manufacture unknown. Doesn’t necessarily mean Mexico…there is also the rest of the world creeps that are always looking for a buck… Read more »

I think Madonna is just a victim of Internet outrage on this one. It clearly wasn’t meant to be a big tribute. She shared one personal story about a fond memory of Aretha’s work and how it influenced her. How can a personal anecdote NOT be about oneself?

Madonna is so narcissistic, she did the exact same thing to the michael Jackson tribute at vMAs a decade ago.

@CeeCee…When Madonna first emerged on the music scene she had some fun and catchy dance tunes that perfectly captured the essence of the ‘80’s, but once she started with her sacrilege and vulgarity that was it for me….I’ve had no use for her ever since! However, I will give her this much credit: Unlike so many of her fellow loud-mouthed libs, she actually did move away from the US as so many had promised to do (yet, sadly reneged….) after the 2016 election…Now if she and her p-hat would only stay in Portugal! She can be their problem now…..

It won’t last, Shaybelle….Portugal is beautiful…the Azores breathtaking….very HOT climate.
Why Portugal? A boy-toy?
I don’t dislike her, Shay……I do not appreciate the disrespect. I know she was banned from Italy—-the Vatican, I think. I wonder if the ban was lifted.
I must admit, I do like her music….
My mother said she had just given birth to my brother the first time she heard “Like A Virgin” on the radio…… she said she loved her instantly. LOL. She even bought her ‘book’…pretty popular, at the time, I presume?

Hmmm…she asserts that she didn’t have enough time in 2 minutes to pay homage to Aretha Franklin but 2 minutes is enough time for her to pay homage to herself? I don’t buy her excuse at all–she’s a friggen narcissist. This kind of reminds me of when Oprah attempted to pay homage to Mary Tyler Moore after her death and all Oprah did was talk about herself and then she played the tape of her impersonating Mary in the opening to The Mary Tyler Moore. Even Dick Van Dyke was irate with Oprah for her making it all about her.… Read more »

You are correct about Madonna knowing well ahead of time about Aretha Franklin tribute. She posted on her social media hours before she came on stage while getting ready and hastaged Aretha. Then she blames all of this on MTV instead of taking the blame. She did the same thing when she was jerked off the stage by her cape a few years ago. Instead of acknowledging that someone’s timing was off she blamed the designer of the cape. I’m pretty sure that stunt worked in all of the rehearsals. Madonna is definitely a narcissist, and the comparison to Oprah… Read more »

I didn’t see Madonna’s tribute to Aretha since i don’t watch award shows. But from the clips I saw I can see why there can be some negative views from many. But that’s Madonna…no surprise here. What I can’t get from some of the comments here is the dislike of Oprah. She lifted herself up from poverty to become a very nice, rich person who has given to many philanthropic causes including education for girls and women. Can’t say the same for all rich people born with silver spoons who only think about themselves.

@Rose…..I don’t think most of us have a problem with anyone who works hard, becomes a success and enjoys the fruits of their labor. Even though I always regarded Oprah as a take her or leave her sort of celeb, I didn’t mind her early talk show days and would even tune in when there was a guest I wanted to watch. However, somewhere along the line, Winfrey became too self-important and seemingly styled herself as an omnipotent guru for the uninformed masses…from her “I know best” attitude on what to read and how to live, to her very manipulative… Read more »

Fair enough, Rose! Just offering you the other side as to why a lot of people are not swayed by “The Mighty O.” and those of similar ilk. I believe our reasons are more than valid for holding the opinions that we do regarding these vastly-wealthy individuals whose pet projects often seem nothing more than an exercise in self-aggrandizement! Perhaps instead of throwing obscene amounts of money at foreign causes or campaigns to defeat their political opponents, those funds could be more efficiently used to make life better for those truly needy and deserving people in their own backyards!

I could name a few that when I seen them on tv I change the channel. But at least someone like Oprah, Bill Gates, etc. do give compared to some others who legally or illegally just find ways to accumulate more. Where we do agree is that I don’t want any one group or person giving obscene amounts of money towards campaigns to defeat their… Read more »

In defense of Madonna…

Those attacking Madonna’s physical appearance deserve zero respect or consideration.

Some of those attacking Madonna in this instance simply don’t like her: for her politics and/or persona. The same thing happens with Barbra Streisand.

Those attacking Madonna’s words are misguided. Sadly, I have, on occasion, given a eulogy. It’s only natural to mention, within that eulogy, how the departed and the eulogist were connected. Madonna was truly honoring Aretha and mentioning how Aretha impacted her. I think that, in this appearance, Madonna was a ray of light…

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
