“When Madonna posts a photo of her on Instagram to promote her album, it’s actually your body (I’m not kidding).” Because a pop star like Madonna, loved and acclaimed in the world universe with more than 350 million records sold, feel the need to stealing the body of an anonymous 20-year-old user for us it will remain a mystery yet it is precisely what he denounced Amelia Goldie, 28-year-old Australian writer, photographer and influencer. In a video published a few days ago on TikTok and already gone viral with over 2 million views, the girl shows how the singer has stolen her body by using it instead of her own to advertise the release of Rebel Heart.
The offending photo, published on May 1, 2015 on the celeb’s social profile, portrays her in a jaunty pose complete with a helmet and fringe, Joy Division t-shirt, tweed skirt and double neckline in perfect teen style. One of the many rebel looks of the most transforming star ever – many might think – and instead of the original there is only the face. Body, clothes and even polka dot bedspread are those of the 20-year-old Australian, who compares the two photos in the video. Finding the differences is impossible: the shots are identical. A full-blown image theft discovered by chance by the girl, who at the time called it “the strangest moment of my life”.
She spoke again about the episode last week Amelia Goldie in an interview with BuzzFeed, where she says she initially thought “it was all a joke”, “but when I saw the photo on Madonna’s official account I knew it wasn’t. The 28-year-old tried to reach out to her team twice via Instagram to ask explanation about what happened, without ever receiving an answer. “There would certainly be laughing and flattering, but obviously I would also like to be accredited! I think if you’re going to use someone else’s body as your own, that someone deserves to be mentioned. But no hard feelings! “.
If the social media specialists who take care of the star’s profiles have preferred the press blackout, Madonna has decided to answer the rhymes to the girl by publishing a series of photos that leave very little to the imagination. Toned legs wrapped in sexy black Parisians and a bold bondage-style underwear outfit reveal a crazy physique that a little girl would envy. A moment of “Self Reflection” to show that the years go by for everyone, except ours Madame X, who at 62 does not stop loving both photos with filters and those without veils.
