Madonna has hit back at critics who claimed her tribute to Aretha Franklin at Monday’s VMAs was self-indulgent.
The singer posted on Instagram explaining that she had been asked to share “any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin”.
In the post, Madonna went on to accuse people of having “short attention spans” and being “quick to judge”.
The 60-year old delivered a five-minute speech ending with her giving thanks to Franklin for “empowering all of us”.
But her speech at the awards ceremony in New York didn’t go down well with some viewers who thought she spoke too much about herself and too little about the late Queen of Soul.
Madonna said: “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.”
