By Felicia Czochanski on August 21, 2018
Madonna is being blasted online for her tribute to Aretha Franklin at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards last night. Madonna took to the stage to honor Franklin who passed away last week, but is accused of ‘making the entire speech about herself’. Madonna was on stage for 10-minutes and barely even mentioned Aretha’s name. Instead, she reminisced about her own early days as an up and coming singer and several other anecdotes from her own life. at one point the audience erupted with applause and cheers during one of the few time Aretha’s name was even mentioned.
