AceShowbiz - Madonna insisted 50 Cent was not really sorry for mocking and ridiculing her over her racy bedroom Instagram pictures. While using a filter that made her look like a cartoon character with bugged-out eyes and inflated lips, the "Like a Virgin" hitmaker explained why she thought the rapper's apology was "fake" and "invalid."
"You were trying to shame me. You were trying to humiliate me. Your apology is fake, it's bulls**t, and it's not valid. Let me just hit those four, five points about your apology being invalid," she said to the camera while she got her hair done by her stylist. "Number one, it's not hard to find footage of you and me hanging out."
"Number two, an apology is not valid if you don't know what you're apologizing for. What you should be apologizing for is your misogynistic, sexist, ageist behavior and remarks."
"Number three, you didn't hurt my feelings 'cause I don't take it personally. I could never take it personally 'cause you're not coming from an enlightened place."
"Number four, you say that you're not benefiting from it. Of course you're benefiting from it. That is what social media is all about. You do understand that, right? We post things about ourselves and we use Instagram and other forms of social media because we want attention."
She continued, "We want people to buy our products. We want people to invest in our brands. We want people to listen to our music. We want people to go to our concerts. We want people to notice us. We want people to like us."
"There's nothing wrong with any of those things but don't kid yourself if you think you have an Instagram account and you're not benefiting from it. Shut it down. Stop lying to yourself."
Her scolding went on, "Your reposting somebody else's low-level-of-consciousness posting that are meant to shame and humiliate other people - that's f***ed up."
"You are trying to put a limit on when women should be able to feel good about themselves," she added before insisting she forgive the rap star despite his being not sincere, "So finally I just wanna say: I forgive you and I hope that one day you wake up and see a different point of view. I wish you all the best. That's it, okay?"
On her caption, Madge added, "Delayed Clap back for 50 cent And his fake apology ….…..,..Ive been busy, better late then never!!! Had. some things I needed to say."
50 Cent initially called Madonna's NSFW photos "the funniest sh*t" and laughed at her, "That's Madonna under the bed trying to do like a virgin at 63. she shot out, if she don't get her old a** up."
After she blasted him, he posted this note, "I must have hurt Madonna's feelings, she went and dug up a old MTV, TRL photo from 03. Ok I'm sorry I did not intend to hurt your feelings. 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."
