Madonna's got jokes.
A week after the Billboard Music Awards was harshly criticized on social media for the pop icon's tribute to Prince, Madge delivered a blanket statement on Instagram to everyone who took issue with the performance — including, yours truly.
Wearing the jacket Prince gave me back in the day without permission from BET. 😂. lol! God Bless America. 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/Ucb0peEfqJ— Madonna (@Madonna) May 29, 2016
Welp. 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.
Tune in to the BET Awards on Sunday, June 26 at 8P/7C to see the Prince tribute that has everyone talking, and check out the nominees here.
