Fans Skewer Madonna for Shading Beyoncé in Photoshopped Pic
— Madonna (@Madonna) June 22, 2018
The Beyhive is prepared to sting again. The Internet dragged “Live to Tell” singer Madonna for ill-refined photos of Jay-z and Beyoncé in their new music video Apesh*t.
The 59-year-old singer posted an image of the married couple admiring a gallery of paintings inside of the Louvre Museum on her social media. However, fans quickly noticed the wall of drawings were replaced with Photoshopped pictures of Madonna’s most popular album covers including “Like a Prayer”, “True Blue” and “Ray of Light.”
Madonna wrote the caption, “Learning from the Master lol.”
Fans were repulsed by the singer’s social media post and instantly blasted her for deeming herself a “master” of two Black artists.
Did you really just post a pic of 2 black people looking at you and refer to yourself as "the master"? Bitch you done lost your goddamn mind. https://t.co/jTj6E4sPyJ

Some fans even wrote “sounds about white” and took shots at the pop star’s age “thought you were like…you know…dead.”
Madonna eventually turned the comments off on her Instagram, but fans on Twitter have continued to blast her.
The “Open Your Heart” singer and Beyoncé are friends and reportedly have a history. In 2013 following a screening of the “Crazy In Love” artist’s self-titled visual album Beyoncé, Queen Bey said to the audience, “I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire.”
