Madonna has hit back at rapper 50 Cent after he mocked a photoshoot she posted online.
The ‘Queen of Pop’, 63, shared a photo of her with the rapper from 2003 and said he had only pretended to be her friend.
It comes after 50 Cent mocked a photoshoot Madonna posted showing her legs from underneath a bed – with the rapper photoshopping the image to make her look like the Wicked Witch of the East from the Wizard of Oz.
Madonna said on Instagram on Thursday: “Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend. Now you have decided to talk smack about me!
“I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media, the least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult,’ she said.
“You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you’re my age!”
The 63-year-old singer, known for hits such as Like a Prayer, added: “Too bad there are no sour grapes emojees.”

Madonna made headlines after posing in a series of photos in leather lingerie and fishnets sprawled across – and under – her bed.
In some of the shots her nipple was exposed. Instagram removed the photos, sparking a censorship complaint from the singer.
“I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification,” she wrote after putting them back online.
“The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed.”
She added: “It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple.”
