(The Daily Mail)—Madonna has apologized after she posted Instagram photos of Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela that were altered to look like her own image on her new album.
In a statement on her official Facebook page, Madonna said: ‘I’m sorry. I’m not comparing my self to anyone. I’m admiring and acknowledging there Rebel Hearts (sic)’.
The Queen of Pop’s cover for the album Rebel Heart is a close-up of her face with black string on it, which has been the subject of countless Internet memes, with other iconic artists Photoshopped into the same template.
