Madonna Quiets The Haters With Message, Then Cancels Rebel Heart Tour Dates

No matter what decade we’re in, someone is always hating on Madonna. It’s just a sign of her continued relevance in pop culture. This time around, the icon took to Twitter and Instagram to put the haters down in a very straightforward message.

Since Madonna’s album released, critics have been saying that the album is a flop and not a success like the artist had hoped. For example, back in April it was said that her sales were so low that instead of being on top, her album Rebel Heart was lagging behind at number 34 on the Billboard charts. This marks the only album of hers that hasn’t been in the top 10. All of Madonna’s 13 studio albums have made it to the top of the Billboard charts.

To silence the commotion over the alleged flop album, Madonna captioned her Instagram with this message, “Shut up jealous b***hes! I hope you are as fun loving and adventurous as me when you’re my age!!!! Hahahha let’s see. #b***himmadonna #rebelheart.”

Although Madonna still has her confidence in check, this hasn’t been the easiest of promotional tours for her. Most of her appearances from award show performances to her surprise kiss with Drake at Coachella have been seen as desperate instead of riveting.

A day after she silenced her haters, Madonna broke some news to her fans that she would have to cancel and shuffle around a few tour dates. Some people point to this decision as poor ticket sales, but no one has confirmed this.

Madonna’s leg was supposed to kick off on August 29 in Miami, but instead she will start her tour on September 9 in Canada, which means she will have to shift her dates around that were supposed to happen later in the tour.

In a statement, Madonna said, “As my fans already know, the show has to be perfect Assembling all the elements will require more time than we realized. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause my fans. I can promise you this show will be worth the wait. Can’t wait to share it with all my Rebel Hearts out there.”
