AceShowbiz - Madonna seemingly doesn't care about what people are saying about her showing too much skin. The "Material Girl" songstress reportedly wants to be a "sex symbol" despite 50 Cent's diss over her controversial racy bedroom social media posts.
"She has gotten a lot of hateful comments for her risky new photos and for showing too much skin, but she has also gotten so much praise from women who reached out to her and who commented on her photos," a source spilled to HollywoodLife.com on Thursday, December 16. "And when people like 50 Cent try to come for her, she is going to clap back every time."
The source went on elaborating, "Madonna is telling her friends that she is going to be a sex symbol until the day that she dies and there is nothing that will ever stop her from being who she is." The insider also claimed that the 63-year-old star believes that "if people don't like it, they can look away."
"Madonna really does not care what others are saying about her because she is confident with herself and her body," the source continued. It's also said that Madonna is now "more confident than ever before."
On the reason why, the insider explained, "Ever since her 'Truth or Dare' days, women have looked up to her for inspiration. She redefined female sexuality back then during a time when it was taboo for women to be overtly sexual." The informant pointed out, "Madonna is and always will be, unapologetically, herself."
A separate source told the outlet that Madonna "always will be extremely comfortable in her own skin." The so-called inside source added, "Madonna knows who she is inside and out and she will never apologize for standing in her own truth."
"She understands that her confidence can overwhelm those who may be insecure within themselves, but she will never stop fighting for female empowerment. She believes everyone has the right to feel sexy," the source close to the singer noted. "Age does not define beauty and she's proud of what she looks like and how she feels."
After Madonna posted a series of NSFW bedroom photos earlier this month, 50 Cent called her out, dubbing her racy post "the funniest s**t" and noting that she tried to act "like a virgin." The 46-year-old rapper, however, later apologized, but Madonna felt that his apology was "fake" and "invalid."
"You were trying to shame me. You were trying to humiliate me," Madonna said in the video she posted on her Instagram page while she got her hair done by her stylist. "Your apology is fake, it's bulls**t and it's not valid."
At the end of her 2-minute clip, however, Madonna said that she forgave him and hoped "one day" the "In Da Club" spitter would see "a different point of view." She concluded her video, "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?"
