Madonna Is Not Here For Islamic Moralists

Never one to hold her tongue or suppress her thoughts, Madonna used Instagram to respond to recent criticism about a photo she posted. The image showed the pop superstar wearing a chainmail mask that some people say resembles the face garb worn by Muslim women.

The caption accompanying the chainmail mask photo read, "The Revolution of Love is on...Inshallah." In Arabic, Inshallah means "God willing."

Madonna is currently dating a man who is Muslim. Even so, some followers believed Madonna was criticizing Islamic countries' oppression of women or homosexuality. She responded as such:

"I am an artist and a freedom fighter!" Madonna wrote in the note (see below) uploaded in an Instagram photo on July 4. "I have always fought for Freedom of Expression and human rights in general! If you don't like what I have to say or do then simply stop following me on Instagram! It's so simple."

The message is in response to critics of her July 2 Instagram photo (above) and likely other images, such as one posted in May where she was photographed holding a gun. She has also been building a school in Pakistan
