Madonna Has Responded After Butt Implant Rumors Swirl

There's another Madonna controversy swimming around the Internet. And this time, it's centered around her derriere. There have been rumors swirling online that The Queen of Pop received butt implants at some point after her butt looked larger during a live performance, and it has stirred up some comments and criticism for the famous "Like a Prayer" singer-songwriter. Sure enough, Madonna had something to say. She quickly responded to those booty allegations by posting the following retort:

The response came from Madonna's Instagram, where the pop superstar welcomed in 2019 by claiming that she is "desperately seeking no ones approval." While she makes no mention of her bottom or the rumored implants that she got inside her gluteus maximus, Madonna makes it perfectly clear she doesn't want anyone criticizing her body or saying what she should or should not do it with. It is evident Madonna does not take too kindly to critiques about her body. Given the recent timing of this pointed social media address, one can ultimately read between the lines...

Madonna has received no shortage of criticism throughout her career -- unjustly and otherwise. At this point, it's understandable that she doesn't want to hear what people think of her looks and what she decides to with her body. It is her body, after all; it's ultimately her choice if she (allegedly) opted to get some butt implants to kick off 2019 in a major way. And sure enough, Madonna is not here to hear what you think about any of her major decisions.

In any case, the rumor butt implant is only one of several recent headlines that have featured Madonna. Of late, she has gotten attention by igniting and reigniting feuds with Lady Gaga and Cher. When it comes to the former, Madonna found her bitter about a quote the actress/singer keeps using during the promotional rounds for A Star is Born. She claims (via video) that she actually said it first, and she thinks the award-nominated performer is ripping her off. Meanwhile, when it comes to Cher, it is part of a prolonged public battle she has had with the superstar. Some feuds simply never die, do they?

Additionally, Madonna got herself into hot water when her tribute for Aretha Franklin during MTV's Video Music Awards was heavily criticized as being self-righteous and self-involved when it should've focused on the dearly departed powerhouse singer. Controversy can often be found near Madonna.

In any case, Madonna claims that 2019 is going to be an amazing year, and we'll be sure to keep you posted on the latest developments in the life and times of the pop sensation. There's a better-than-decent chance that Madonna will be at the forefront of a headline or two as the new year rages on. It seems like a known certainty. And we'll be sure to keep you in the loop when that happens, along with other pop updates, right here at CinemaBlend.
