People Are Mad That Madonna Made A Tribute To Aretha Franklin All About Herself
"White women will make even your death about their imaginary oppression."
Tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards, Madonna paid tribute to Aretha Franklin, who died last week at the age of 76.
Madonna took the stage before awarding Camila Cabello with Video Of The Year, and used the opportunity to tell a long story about herself and how she came into the industry.
Though, this is not the first time Madonna has gotten heat for an awards show tribute. She also received backlash following a performance of "Purple Rain" to honour Prince at the 2016 Billboard Awards.
BuzzFeed has reached out to Madonna's representatives for comment.
