Madonna is a prolific user of the social networks—amassing nearly 14 million Instagram followers, 2.5 million on Twitter, and 18 million likes for her Facebook page. The 60-year-old megastar, however, considers social media a vice.
“You get caught up in comparing yourself to others,” The Sun quoted her. “I think Instagram is made to make you feel bad. People are really a slave to winning people’s approvals.”
In Madonna’s view, she was able to grow as an artist and as a person because she did not listen to what others said, and she did not compare herself with anyone.
The megastar believes that Instagram obstructs people from being who they really are.
“The world needs that,” she added. “We need voices that are unique, we need inspiration. And that’s what people don’t understand—I want our other artists to think outside the box.”
Madonna admitted, however, that often she was not understood even by those for whom she has fought for.
