Garbage - Shirley Manson Hits Out At Madonna Image Obsession
Garbage star Shirley Manson has hit out at the public's obsession with Madonna's ageing process.
The Scottish singer can't understand why there is so much focus on the 52-year-old pop star's image, and she was shocked when she saw close-ups of Madonna's wrinkly hands.
Manson tells Bullett Media, "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. Even though 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 ageing 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 f**king idiots!"
