Pop star Madonna has lashed out about a profile on her, saying that she felt "raped" by the published article.

The singer was the subject of a lengthy profile in the latest issue of the New York Times Magazine - headlined “Madonna at Sixty.” The profile went into detail about the singer's identity, her being a mother and aging - but Madge hated it!

"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," she expressed via Instagram.
