Madonna has hit back at people who mocked her looks at the Grammys.
The 64-year-old Material Girl singer stunned fans with her unrecognizable looks at the Sunday 65th Annual Grammy Award Ceremony.
The Queen of Pop took the stage as a presenter to introduce Sam Smith and Kim Petras for their “Unholy” appearance.
However, the audience was stunned to see Madonna’s stylish, youthful looks and flawless skin – she wore a fitted, tailored black jacket with a matching black skirt.
“The True Blue hitmaker surprised the crowd with her jaw-dropping wrinkle-free look while introducing Sam Smith and Kim Petras as they prepared to sing their hit track, Unholy, which won the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance during the ceremony,” Daily Mail wrote.
The seven times Grammy award winner shook fans with her smooth and sculpted cheeks and plumped lips.
Her hair was styled in stylish braids tied at the back with two plaits at the front.
“To further accessorize her look for the special night, Madonna added a pair of cross-shaped earrings and added an assortment of flashy rings on her fingers. Her makeup was glammed up and comprised of black mascara and a shimmering, smoky shadow as she flaunted her blonde-dyed eyebrows. She added a nude-colored tint to her lips for a finishing touch.”
The mom-of-six held a riding crop in one hand as she addressed the audience on stage while shining in the bright spotlight.
Many people took to Twitter and posted comments about Madonna’s unrecognizable face and overall looks on the event.
“Me attempting to ignore the fact that Madonna has a whole new face,” one fan wrote on Twitter with a meme featuring a very confused Adele at a basketball game.
“So, I am just now watching the #GRAMMYs. Madonna doesn’t quite look like @Madonna to me,” another commented.
“Whaaaaaat happened to Madonna’s face?! #GRAMMYs,” one fan asked.
“This legit looks like a Madonna impersonator with pics of the real Madonna in the background. She really f–ked up her face,” another tweet read.
“Madonna looks good for her age… if her age is 2,700-year-old vampire who eats babies and small animals alive,” someone else said.
Following the criticism, the Frozen singer rips into people who criticized how she looked at the ceremony.
“It was an honor for me to Introduce Kim Petras and Sam Smith at the Grammys. I wanted to give the last award which was Album of the year, but I thought it was more important that I present the first trans- woman performing at the Grammys— a History making moment!! And on top of that she won a Grammy!!” She wrote alongside her video on Instagram featuring Sam Smith, Cardi B, Ab-Soul, Jozzy, and Honey Dijon.
“Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim- Many people chose to only talk about Close-up photos of me Taken with a long lens camera By a press photographer that Would distort anyone’s face!!”
The pop icon continued, “Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world we live in.“
“A world that refuses to celebrate women past the age of 45 And feels the need to punish her If she continues to be strong willed, hard-working and adventurous.”
She added that she has never apologized for any of her creative choices including the way she looked or dressed up and she would never do that.
“I’m not going to start. I have been degraded by the media since the beginning of my career but I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come.”
In the words of Beyonce “You-won’t break my soul”,
“I look forward to many more years of subversive behavior -pushing boundaries-Standing up to the patriarchy -and Most of all enjoying my life.”
“Bow down bitches!” the Queen concluded.
