Billboard Music Awards: Madonna Responds to Critics of Her Prince Tribute

“Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to,” she wrote. “Whatever your age Gender or skin Color. If you loved him and he inspired you then show it!!!! I love Prince 4 ever.”

On Sunday night in Las Vegas, Madonna saluted her friend and collaborator Prince with a two-song performance at the Billboard Music Awards. Paying tribute to the late legend during the kudocast, she performed “Nothing Compares 2 U" and “Purple Rain,” which included a surprise appearance from Stevie Wonder. Madonna took to social media on Monday to respond to critics of the production.

 “Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to,” she wrote. “Whatever your age Gender or skin Color. If you loved him and he inspired you then show it!!!! I love Prince 4 ever.”

Shortly after, she posted a video of her dancing, along with the caption, “This is my ‘I’m not your bitch don't hang your shit on me’ Dance," quoting her 1994 hit "Human Nature."
