The Beyhive is mad at Madonna.
The 59-year-old entertainer hit up social media with an altered image taken from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s new music video for “Apesh%$.” The original still frame showed the power couple admiring a wall of paintings inside the Louvre; however, Madonna’s Photoshopped image replaced the museum’s actual framed artwork with her most recognizable album covers. Though it wasn’t the most clever post, it wasn’t wildly offensive … that is, until you read Madonna’s caption.
“Learning from the Master . . . lol,” she wrote.
Do we really need to explain how Madonna royally screwed up? You would think a white person—especially one who’s in the public eye—would know better than to refer to herself as a “master” when using the image of two black artists.
Madonna eventually changed the caption of her Instagram post to, “Learning …………..lol,” but her fate had already been sealed.
