Madonna Defends Aretha Franklin Tribute After Backlash

Cardi B Blasts The Haters While Accepting The VMA For Best New Artist

Madonna presents a tribute to Aretha Franklin at the MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Monday, Aug. 20, 2018, in NY.

The Material Girl, clad in flowing black with flourishes of African jewelry and spiky headgear, gave the send-off to the late Queen of Soul before presenting the video of the year award to Camila Cabello.

Lopez also put up an electrifying performance as she sang old hits like "Jenny from the Block", "I'm Real" and "All I Have", as well as "On the floor".

Avicii won a posthumous award for best dance video of his "Lonely together" featuring Rita Ora, while Ariana Grande scored for the best pop video with "No tears left to cry" and Nicki Minaj's "Chun-li" won best hip hop video.

Lopez went on to describe Rodriguez as her "twin soul" and said her life is "sweeter and better" with the former baseball star in it.

"Madonna, I love you so, so much", she said, a moment after admitting her hands were shaking.

Many took to Twitter to criticize Madonna on Monday night for her words about Franklin, who died at age 76 last week. However, Madonna explained that she quickly got exhausted of being a "puppet", so she traveled back to the U.S.to begin her real career. "I knew I had to go higher, I had to be stronger than I had been before".

Cabello achieved the unthinkable later in the show when she took home the top prize - video of the year - for "Havana". "I'm surprised no other artists mentioned her tonight". "But the relationship I have with you guys, with my fans, is a forever thing", she said while accepting the first award.

Cardi said she's been blessed with fans "that you can't buy", looking into the camera and shouting an expletive.

Who better to bring to the MTV Video Music Awards than the person who has supported you most throughout your career?

Then she said that when her children came into her life, "Everything changed".

We all knew that the MTV VMAs' Aretha Franklin tribute would be controversial (MTV isn't exactly the best at executing things tactfully), but no one expected it to be so dang freakish.
