Belated bashing! A week after the explosive release of Kim Kardashian’s nude ‘Paper’ Magazine spread, pop music icon Madonna made a jab on Noc. 20 at the reality star for getting away with such gratuitous imagery of her naked body, when she has not been able to do the same in the past.
After #BreakingTheInternet with her butt and full frontal photos in Paper Magazine,Kim Kardashian was chastised by the Queen of Pop for publishing photos of her naked body. Madonna did this by posting her own censored topless photo on Instagram, months after the social media network had her remove a photo she posted of a topless friend.
Madona Vs Kim Kardashian: ‘Vogue’ Queen Bashes Kardashian’s Nude Spread
Last week, the Internet was all consumed with the scandalous images of Kim Kardashian ,34, in all her naked glory. Many cheered her decision to do the shoot, several jeered, but everyone saw every last bit of reality TV’s reigning queen. A week later, another queen came forward to bash Kim K’s Paper Magazine spread on, calling foul on Instagram for allowing her images to go live. Madonna, 56. took to her own Instagram on Nov. 20 to post a censored topless photo of herself from the 90s, with the caption, “Its confusing. Nipples are considered forbidden and provocative but exposing your ass is not. #flummoxed (sic).”
Though the jibe came a week after Kim’s photo release, it actually isn’t that surprising that Madonna would react to her photos like this. The Material Girl was singer was forced to remove a picture on Instagram on April 19, 2014, the day after her 56th birthday. While partying with friends in Cannes, she posted a shot of herself posing with a bare-breasted friend. The image was taken down because the friend’s nipples were visible. She would later repost the image again, this time with the friend’s nipples covered up. Clearly, the double standard concerning Kim’s photos has Madonna miffed. Can’t say we blame her — same rules should apply to everyone!
Kim Kardashian Bashed By Naya Rivera Over ‘Paper’ Magazine Spread
But it wasn’t just Madonna who was put off by Kim’s nude photos. The first celebrity to voice a concern over there release was Naya Rivera. The Glee star commented directly on Kim’s original Instagram, saying “I normally don’t. But…you’re someone’s mother…”
The feud on grew after that, with Kim K’s bestie taking swipes at Naya and Naya then taking swipes right back. Things have calmed down between the pair, but it seems like a real rivalry has been born between these two. In Madonna’s case, it seems like she’s trying to make a bigger statement about regulating photos on the web.
What do you think, Hollywoodlifers? Shouldn’t the same rules apply to everyone who posts nudes on the Internet?
