Deal with It! @beautyandessexlv

After getting dragged on Twitter for her tribute to the fallen music icon Prince at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, Madonna had only three words for the critics: “Deal With It!”

On Monday (May 23), the veteran pop diva went on her Instagram account to respond to the negative reactions of her renditions of “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Purple Rain,” which included a surprise appearance from Stevie Wonder. The Material Girl posted a photo of herself dressed in a purple-inspired jumpsuit with a white rose in her mouth.

“Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to. Whatever your age Gender or skin Color. If you loved him and he inspired you then show it!!!! I love Prince 4 ever,” reads the caption under the photo.

Madonna then posted a video of her dancing, along with the caption, “This is my ‘I’m not your bitch don’t hang your s— on me’ Dance,” which is in reference to her 1994 hit “Human Nature.”

Although the BBMAs didn’t present a memorable Prince tribute, BET is promising that they will deliver a proper homage to the late guitarist at the 2016 BET Music Awards, which airs on June 26 at 8PM ET.
