Madonna SLAMS comments about Grammy appearance: 'I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny' 

Madonna has confronted criticism about her appearance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday in a lengthy Instagram post hitting out at ‘ageism and misogyny.’

The 64-year-old music legend was defiant as she shared a video of her night at the Grammys, where she partied with Sam Smith and Cardi B.

According to Madonna it was the ‘closeup’ from a ‘long lens camera’ that distorted her face and made it appear rounder and puffier than it actually was.

She diagnosed the problem, adding, ‘Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world we live in.’ 

In her lengthy caption, Madonna called it an ‘honor’ to introduce Kim Petras — the first openly trans person to win a Grammy — as well as Sam Smith, who shared the duo award and became the first openly non-binary artist to win in the Best Pop Duo/Group Collaboration category.

She noted that she opted to introduce Petras, rather than presenting for the coveted Album of the Year prize, as she thought the former moment would be more important and befitting her trailblazing status.

But Madonna was annoyed at how people ignored her words and instead focused on her appearance.

‘Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim- Many people chose to only talk about Close-up photos of me Taken with a long lens camera By a press photographer that Would distort anyone’s face!!’ she said.
