The rap legend, 46, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, took to Twitter on Thursday to apologize to Madonna after he mocked the collection of photos the Material Girl posted to Instagram. The Candy Shop rapper made a comparison between Madonna’s scantily-clad images of her on a bed and the Wicked Witch of the East under a fallen house in The Wizard of Oz.
In response, the pop queen took to her Stories to call out the What Up Gangsta hitmaker, “Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend. Now you have decided to talk smack about me!” “I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media,” she continued. “The least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult.” “You are just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you are my age,” she added.
Meanwhile, 50 then took to Twitter with his apology, “I must have hurt Madonna feelings, she went and dug up an old MTV photo from 03. ok I’m sorry i did not intend to hurt your feelings,” he continued. “I don’t benefit from this in anyway i said what i thought when i saw the picture because of where i had seen it before i hope you accept my apology.” Meanwhile, Madonna has yet to publicly respond to his apology.
Previously, in a post of his own, which has since been deleted, the Power star wrote, “That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do ‘Like A Virgin’ at 63. She shot out if she doesn’t get her old a** up.” Madonna had originally posted the photos to the social media platform earlier in November. However, Instagram took them down after they determined it violated their nudity policy because part of the singer’s nipple was allegedly exposed.
Madonna reposted the pictures on Nov. 25, adding emojis to cover the body part in question, penning a lengthy caption about censorship and sexualizing women’s bodies. “I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification….. The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed. It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple,” she wrote in part.
