It’s safe to say Madonna didn’t love her New York Times Magazine cover story, which was published on Wednesday. So she took to Instagram to talk all about it.
She posted a photo of the cover along with a few behind-the-scenes shots of her with photographer/friend JR. The caption starts off fine, as the star talks about the pre-shoot chat and celebratory glass of wine she had. But then it quickly takes a dark turn: “To say that I was disappointed in the article would be an understatement.”
“You can’t fix society and its endless need to diminish, disparage or degrade that which they know is good. Especially strong independent women,” she wrote. “The journalist who wrote this article spent days and hours and months with me and was invited into a world which many people don’t get to see, but chose to focus on trivial and superficial matters such as the ethnicity of my stand in or the fabric of my curtains and never ending comments about my age which would never have been mentioned had I been a MAN.
“Women have a really hard time being the champions of other women even if they are posing as intellectual feminists.”
The Queen of Pop continued: “I’m sorry I spent 5 minutes with her. It makes me feel raped. And yes I’m allowed to use that analogy having been raped at the age of 19. Further proof that the venerable N.Y.T. is one of the founding fathers of the Patriarchy. And I say—DEATH TO THE PATRIARCHY woven deep into the fabric of Society. I will never stop fighting to eradicate it.”
