Madonna Says The World is "Threatened" By Her Power, Tweets A Selfie After Facing Criticism Over Her "New Face" At The Grammy Awards

Madonna faced endless criticism online over her "unrecognizable" appearance, but the superstar is not backing down. The celeb took to Twitter to declare the world is "threatened" by her "power" and "stamina."

Madonna attended the 2023 Grammy Awards to introduce Kim Petras and Sam Smith on February 5. The 64-year-old boasted shiny, plump cheeks, a full pout, and no wrinkles!

"Are you ready for a little controversy?" she announced on stage. "Here’s what I’ve learned after four decades in music. If they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative, or dangerous, you are definitely onto something."

The question is, was Madonna ready for a little controversy? Pictures of the "Material Girl" singer circulated after the Grammy Awards, and users on social media began critiquing her new look – a few people were even comparing her to the Jigsaw puppet! 

The performer's Grammy appearance has also fueled conversations on plastic surgery and botox. "I don’t hate Madonna for doing this to herself," tweeted @Nikki2u. "I hate that we live in a society where she thinks she has to do this to herself."

It seems Madonna has a lot on her plate at the moment. Just recently, the Ethiopian World Federation accused the pop star of child trafficking in Malawi. The "Frozen" singer has yet to address these allegations, but she did go on Twitter yesterday to make a random announcement.

On February 7, Madonna posted a selfie on the platform complete with a fiery caption. "The world is threatened by my power and my stamina," she wrote. "My intelligence and my will to survive. But they will never break me this is all the test."

Indeed, it doesn't seem like the Queen of Pop will be backing down anytime soon – she’s even prepping for her upcoming world tour this year. In an interview with Variety, the star opened up about performing again and discussed her plans for a biopic (which is currently scrapped for now). “I’m about to create another show, and I’ve been working for several years on the screenplay about my life,” she said. 

She added, “This is a good time for me – I’m gathering ideas, getting inspired, hanging out with creative people, watching films, seeing art, listening to music.”
