Madonna Fires Back at BET for Their Shade on Her Prince Tribute [PHOTO]
As we try to keep Madonna's failed Prince tribute at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards a distant memory, the pop queen decided to clap back at BET’s shade of her Prince tribute -- albeit a few weeks late.
Over the weekend, Madge went on her Instagram page and posted a vintage photo of a very young Madonna wearing a jacket that Prince once gave to her.
"Wearing the jacket Prince gave me back in the day without permission from BET. . lol! God Bless America," she wrote. the Material Girl posted to Instagram on Saturday while sharing a photo of her wearing a floral jacket and hat.
A day earlier, the Material Girl posted a photo of herself wearing sunglasses, writing, "I Will Shade You. hahahhahahahhahah."
Obviously, both posts were in response to BET's promotional video of the 2016 BET Awards. In the now deleted clip, a purple image of Prince appears behind a backdrop of rain with the tagline, "Nothing Compares 2 U": "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We got you."
BET did respond to Madonna's post writing on their website, "Unfortunately, witty as this tweet is, it can't turn back the clock on a performance that failed to cover the various roles and stages of the legend's career."
Petty behavior aside, it looks like BET is planning something special for their Prince tribute at their upcoming awards show.
Although it's not confirm, Maxwell kinda hinted that he might be involved in honoring the late musician. "Proud to say i'll be performing this year on the awards this june 26th.. wear yo' bathing suits..," he tweeted with a purple umbrella emoji.
