Madonna is being dragged online for a photo she shared to her Instagram page promoting her V Magazine collab.
On Sunday, Madonna posted several pictures on Instagram promoting her Steven Klein collab but one picture in particular upset her fans— the picture that shows the photographer holding a knife to Madonna’s throat.
In the caption, Madonna also said that her team was working for free.
“Proud of my collaboration with @stevenkleinstudio For @vmagazine and knowing that against all odds And with very little support from non artistic people who kept pushing back and the fact that we did it with almost zero budget we were still able to make ART,” she captioned the post.
She continued: “Art is not dead if you have the strength to fight for what you believe in!! Thanks to all who did support us and slept on couches and worked long hours and for free all to support madame who is not only here to disturb the peace but to keep Art alive I send you all a BIG kiss! #MadameX”
Her fans reacted: “Worked for free??? Why didnt you Pay them yourself? Are you short on cash or something?” somebody wrote.
Another wrote, “Oh god if you as Madonna have almost zero budget, I don’t know what hope there is for unsigned artists like us lol “
One added, “Girl you got the money PAY THE ARTISTS “worked long hours for free”….I cannot.”
