Madonna made an Aretha tribute all about herself. Twitter wasn't having it.

Instead, Madonna says she was told to "share any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin", which, if you listen to her speech, is pretty much precisely what she did.

Details regarding the burial of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, have been revealed and she will reportedly look in death as she had in life: glamorous and surrounded by her beloved items.

Madonna paid tribute last night at the MTV VMAs to Aretha Franklin, who sadly passed away last Thursday.

"Yeah, you know it just really bothers me and disgusts me because I see a lot of women online, like, 'Oh, I feel sorry for you, ' or 'Your career is over, '" the star added, stating she resisted those messages. "It seems simple to me, but to some, I guess, feeling takes courage".

The 18-time Grammy Award victor had suffered ill health for many years and died at home in Detroit.

She told the story of how she showed up for the audition and nailed the dancing part - but had completely forgotten to prepare sheet music for a song to sing.

Comedian Tiffany Haddish, who was one of the presenters, took the opportunity to take a swipe at the girl group. Camila dedicated her award for artist of the year to her fans.

Now, why did Madonna take almost 10 minutes to tell a story about herself? Some skinny white girl is going to come up here and belt out a song by one of the greatest soul singers that ever lived?

"In the morning, my telephone rang and the man said, 'Hi, Cher, it's George Miller.' I said, 'Hey, George.' He was the director of Witches of Eastwick", the 72-year-old explained, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I love you ty for wonderful us with your handsome and powerful speech you're incredible", another fan added. "She led me to where I am today". This means that her estate worth about $80 million dollar has no incumbent owner.

The "Best New Artist" award is an accolade that holds heavy value to artists as it is one of the few awards that are fan-given. "All the love that my fans, that my friends, that everybody shows me is genuine and that's something that God give me that you can't buy, bi**h".

"Just to clarify: I was asked to present video of the year by MTV!", she wrote.

To put it gently - it was a hot mess and left many wondering how she landed the gig of paying tribute to the Queen of Soul in the first place.
