Last night at the MTV Video Awards, they incldued tribute to Aretha that left fans confused. Madonna, who also presented the Video of the Year award to Camilla Cabello, went on a speech, that started off thanking Aretha for inspiring her, but quickly turned to be a story about her own journey in music, rather than highlighting the Queen of Soul's long career.
Many fans were outraged, but Madonna took to Instagram, to share that the story she shared was "a part of my journey and thanked Aretha for inspiring me along the way. I did not intend to do a tribute to her!" Madonna wrote. "That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the noise and tinsel of an award show. I could never do her justice in this context or environment."
