Madonna’s latest shared photo comes two weeks after she made an appearance at the Grammy Awards while wearing a black suit. Some viewers immediately took to social media to say her face looked different and they didn’t recognize her. The criticism and opinions made headlines and Madonna seemingly responded with a post-Grammys post of her own.

“Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam[Smith] and Kim [Petras]- Many people chose to only talk about Close-up photos of me Taken with a long lens camera By a press photographer that Would distort anyone’s face!!” she captioned an Instagram video on Feb. 7. She also said she was “caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world we live in.”

“I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way that I look or dress and I’m not going to start,” she continued in the caption. “I have been degraded by the media since the beginning of my career but I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come. In the words of Beyonce ‘You-won’t break my soul.'”
