Who is Amelia Goldie? TikToker claims Madonna 'photoshopped' face on her body to promote 'Rebel Heart' album
Madonna has recently been called out in a TikTok video for photoshopping her face on someone else's body. The video made by Amelia Goldie, features a post made in May 2015, which was shared on Madonna's official Instagram page. It features the singer in a houndstooth skirt, wearing a joy division shirt while promoting her 'Rebel Heart' album. The image is captioned — "I look Kewl". But as Goldie points out in the video, although it is Madonna's face, the body is apparently hers.
Goldie backed up the claiming by sharing the original photo of herself, with the caption — "When Madonna posts a photo of herself to IG to promote her album but it's actually your body (I'm not joking)."
Who is Amelia Goldie?
Amelia Goldie is a 28-year-old writer, photographer and digital marketer based in Sydney, Australia. According to her website, she has a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Photomedia and Film and a Masters of Digital Communications and Culture majoring in Social Media Communication, Media Law and Social Marketing.
Goldie has had quite an interesting career, seeing that she's worked with brands like Headspace, Yves Saint Laurent, ASOS, Ebay, Karl Lagerfeld, Loreal, Glassons, Princess Polly, Makita, Invocare, DesignByThem, Furnished Forever, Dermalogica, The Ordinary and others.
Apart from this, she also has a sizeable social media following of 43.8k followers on Instagram. The video she made talking about the photo was posted to her TikTok account. Although she has only 3,943 followers there, this video, in particular, amassed a total of 2 million views, even though it's just her second video. She even posted a follow-up video, pointing out that the photo is still on Madonna's official Instagram.
According to a report by Buzzfeed, she has tried to get in touch with the singer's team twice but didn't receive any response. "I definitely laugh and say I'm flattered, but of course that I wish I was credited!" She said. She also added that she's a fan of Madonna and that the whole incident makes for a great story.
"I've been told it's a great 'party flex', which makes me laugh. I told it at a job interview and they loved it." She added. She did mention that being credited, however, would have been appreciated. "I think if you're going to play somebody else's body off as your own, they deserve to be mentioned. But no hard feelings!" She said.
Madonna or her team are yet to comment on the same.
