Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has spoken out against newspapers discussing Madonna's fight against the aging process.
The 'Blood For Poppies' star has spoken of her anger at newspapers focusing on her fight against the years, and zooming in on the 'MDNA' star's aging hands.
"The tabloids complain about Madonna looking old, and people laugh at her for that. Then Madonna goes and fixes her face, and they laugh at her for that," says Manson in an interview with Bullett Media. "Even thought they begrudgingly say she looks amazing, they’ll still laugh at her for trying to look young. Then she steps out, looking amazing, and the tabloids go and blow up a picture of her aging hand. Nobody’s doing that to George Clooney, blowing up pictures of his hands!
"I look at these magazines, and I want to say to them, What’s your point? That she’s aged? Does that surprise you? Or is your ‘point’ an attempt to undercut what she’s achieved? I think it is, even if it’s on a subconscious level.
"And you probably wouldn’t turn down those hands if they were grabbing you under the table, you fucking idiots!"
