The queen of pop did not like the publication of a portrait of her in the New York Times and made it known.
The American singer Madonna has confessed to having “the impression of being violated” by reading the portrait of her published Thursday by the daily “The New York Times”, pledging to always fight the “patriarchal society”.
“To say that I am disappointed by the article would be a euphemism,” wrote the star on Instagram. “The journalist who wrote this article has spent hours, days and months with me and has been invited into a world that few people have the opportunity to see.”
“But she chose to focus on trivial and superficial topics like the ethnicity of my lining or the fabric of my curtains and endless comments about my age, which would never have been mentioned if I had been a man, “she continued about this very long portrait entitled” Madonna at Sixty “(Madonna at 60), which covers all periods of the artist’s life.
“I feel raped,” said the singer, noting that she was “allowed to make the analogy that was violated when 19 years” when she moved to New York. It is “additional proof that the venerable NYT is one of the founding fathers of patriarchy”. Before adding: “Death to patriarchy (in capital letters, Ed) deeply woven into the fabric of society”.
“I will never stop fighting to eradicate it,” said the one who turned 60 in August 2018. “It seems that we can not repair society and its endless need to belittle, denigrate and degrade this that she knows how to be positive. In particular strong and independent women. (Afp / nxp)
