Madonna wasn’t shy this week when expressing her qualms with
Instagram and social media generally.
In an interview
with The Sun, the international pop star — who recently released her 14th studio album titled
“Madame X” — slammed the photo-sharing platform, saying it’s “made to make you feel bad.”
“You get caught up in comparing yourself
to others. ‘Should I be
like that, act like that, look
like that?’ ‘Will that make me more fashionable, or more successful?’ people are a slave to winning
others’ approvals,” she said. “I refuse to bend a knee to convention and what

followers free no human verification without any issues.
