Madonna has been slammed by fans over her ‘narcissistic’ and ‘self-indulgent’ tribute to the Manchester Arena bombing victims.
The Like a Virgin star, 58, joined the scores of celebrities who took to social media to pass their condolences to the families of the 22 gig-goers who died after the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s show.
Alongside a snap of the star posing alongside a pouting Ariana, she wrote: ‘Thank Goodness my friend is OK.
‘Lets all pray for the innocent victims who are not ok. For their families and for Manchester.’
However, her ‘vain’ choice of picture has riled her followers, who also claimed the star was ‘insensitive for focusing on the singer rather than the innocent gig-goers who lost their lives.
One wrote: ‘Being thankful that Ariana is ok should have come at the end of her post, it should have been respect for the dead children that should be foremost in people’s minds not being thankful that ur multi $ celeb friend is safe, very selfish post by @madonna.’
Another fumed: ‘This post was so damn unnecessary!!! Think more before you post this kind of s***!!! over the top narcissistic…. ‘
American singer, Madonna tops the list of America’s richest female musicians in 2017 that’s just been released by Forbes.
Madonna reigns with a whooping $580 million. Forbes reports that her Rebel Heart tour, which ended in March 2016, grossed $170million.
She’s closely followed by Celine Dion who comes in second position with $400 million while Barbra Streisand clinches the third position with $390 million.
Beyonce comes in 4th position with $350 million as her last year’s Lemonade album and the Formation World Tour reportedly grossed a quarter of a billion dollars.
Taylor Swift completes the list of the top 5 with $280 million largely due to the success of her 1989 tour, which smashed North American touring records.
Madonna’s adopted three daughters from Malawi: 11-year-old Mercy, brought home in 2009, and Esther and Stella, adopted this February.
On Mother’s Day, the proud mom shared photos of all her kids, including one of Mercy James seated between her two little sisters, and Madonna’s effusive caption called them: ‘My Joy!’ See more pics below…
Madonna celebrated Mother’s Day with Instagram photos of her six-strong brood and a sweet tribute to her own mother, who died when the superstar-to-be was five.
The Bay City-born 58-year-old uploaded a grainy photo of her mother, also called Madonna, cradling the Material Girl when the latter was a baby or toddler.
‘The Greatest Accomplishment of my life is to be the Mother I never knew!’ wrote the Papa Don’t Preach singer in her caption, adding a heart emoji before continuing.
Happy Mother’s Day to my Mama whom I hope is watching over me and. to all who have nurtured and suffered and experienced the Joy and sacrifice of Motherhood!’
The pop diva’s Mother’s Day posts had begun with a close-up photo of her 20-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon, sired by Madonna’s 50-year-old ex-beau Carlos Leon.
‘My Love!’ and a heart emoji comprised the Beautiful Stranger singer’s caption to the photo of her daughter, in which Lourdes was wearing massive hoop earrings, Daily,ail reports.
‘My Champion!’, as well as three soccer ball emojis and an emoji of an arrow-pierced heart, captioned Madge’s next photo, which was of her 11-year-old son David Banda.
She’d adopted David Banda from Malawi in 2006 when he was only a year old and she was with her second husband Guy Ritchie, whom she’d married back in 2000.
Madonna’s since adopted three daughters from Malawi: 11-year-old Mercy, brought home in 2009, and four-year-old twins Esther and Stella, adopted this February.
Madonna, who once released a coffee table book called Sex in which she frequently appeared nude, posted a couple of topless photos to Instagram Saturday.
One was a re-post of a photo she’d uploaded last September in which she showed off a gleaming gold grill over her top teeth and a tangle of necklaces.
Another photo depicted the now entirely naked 58-year-old’s astonishingly chiseled body, from just below the bust down to her upper thigh.
On Friday, Madonna, 58, shared a heart melting video of her four-year-old twin daughters, Stella and Esther, as they received their very first Barbie dolls. The girls sang the song Finger Family as they showed off their new toys.
The girls were in upbeat form after receiving their first ever Barbies, which apparently pushed their fondness for Pokemon to the side. ‘What happens when you get your first Barbie Doll!! Pikachu is left in the dust!,’ Madonna captioned the vid.
Together at last!…Madonna adopted four-year-old twin girls Esther and Stella just a few weeks ago. And on Wednesday the Rebel Heart singer shared a photo to Instagram of the siblings with two of her other children: Mercy and David, both aged 11. Not present were her eldest kids Lourdes, 20, and Rocco, 16.
The 58-year-old Grammy winner captioned the image: ‘Pajama Game on… The Revolution of ♥️ starts at home!’ She added four smiley faces.
