Madonna has posted some choice words about her recent New York Times profile.
The piece - Madonna at Sixty by Vanessa Grigoriadis - appeared in New York Times Magazine earlier this week, an intimate glimpse into her life.
Madonna, though, isn't happy. She compared the piece to being "raped" before adding: "And yes I’m allowed to use that analogy having been raped at the age of 19".
Posting her rebuttal on Instagram, Madonna wrote: "I’m sorry I spent 5 minutes with her... To say that I was disappointed in the article would be an understatement".
Specifically, Madonna disliked the journalist's focus on "trivial and superficial matter such as the ethnicity of my stand-in or the fabric of my curtains and never ending comments about my age which would never have been mentioned had I been a MAN!"

Madame on the cover of N.Y.T. Magazine photographed by my dear friend @jr..........Also sharing my fav photo that never made it in, along with pre-shoot chat and a celebratory glass of wine after many hours of work! To say that I was disappointed in the article would be an understatement- It seems. You cant fix society And its endless need to diminish, Disparage or degrade that which they know is good. Especially strong independent women. The journalist who wrote this article spent days and hours and months with me and was invited into a world which many people dont get to see, but chose to focus on trivial and superficial matters such as the ethnicity of my stand in or the fabric of my curtains and never ending comments about my age which would never have been mentioned had I been a MAN! Women have a really hard time being the champions of other women even if. they are posing as intellectual feminists. Im sorry i spent 5 minutes with her. It makes me feel raped. And yes I’m allowed to use that analogy having been raped at the age of 19. Further proof that the venerable N.Y.T. Is one of the founding fathers of the Patriarchy. And I say—-DEATH TO THE PATRIARCHY woven deep into the fabric of Society. I will never stop fighting to eradicate it.
