Nelly trolled for 'hypocritical' remark asking Madonna to cover her butt
Nelly is under fire for commenting on a series of racy pictures posted by Madonna over the weekend suggesting the pop icon to “cover up”. The 63-year-old singer posted a series of 10 pictures with the caption “car trouble” in which she’s wearing a black and gold overcoat along with a bustier, fishnet, and lacy underwear while posing on and around a black luxury car. To which the 47-year-old rapper wrote, “Some things should be covered up,”
The 'Lil Bit' rapper was instantly slammed by Madonna’s fans for his sexist comment. Soon the pop icon’s followers jumped in the conversation ripping Nelly who later deleted his comment from the post. One fan commented “If a writer of songs like ‘shake ya tailfeather’ and it’s getting hot in here so take off all your clothes’ gets triggered by Madonna’s a** photoshoot, just know dude, we’re laughing at your hypocritical BS. Don’t sing about girls getting naked, then criticize it. Petty”.

While singer and songwriter Anabel Englund and photographer Steven Klein appreciated Madonna’s pictures calling it “stunning” many fired ageist comments on the post. Slamming the comments, another follower wrote “I have a theory, @madonna doesn’t feel she’s 63 cause y’all still be acting like it’s 1950s”
“Y’all should really be looking at YOURSELVES and asking why the f**k u tryna cyber bully this person for the way she looks? It’s gross and giving boomer energy. @nelly this message is for you too.” wrote another follower.
This isn’t the first time the ‘Like a Virgin’ hitmaker was publicly shamed for her Instagram photos by a male celeb. In December 2021, rapper 50 cent mocked Madonna’s Instagram photos in his own IG story saying “yo this is the funniest s—t LOL,..That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do like a virgin at 63. She shot out, if she don’t get her old ass up.”
To which the Queen of Pop clapped back, sharing a throwback picture of the pair posing together on the red carpet in 2003 with a caption “Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend,” on her IG story.
