Madonna took to social media to address criticism of her appearance at the 65th Grammy Awards.

She was introducing Kim Petras and Sam Smith, and was upset that people focused on her appearance instead of her speech.

Madonna denounced the ageism and misogyny present in society.

She stated that she has never apologized for her creative choices or appearance and won't start now.

Madonna sees this criticism as a test and wants to trailblaze for women in the future.

She plans to continue pushing boundaries and standing up to the patriarchy.

Madonna was happy to present the first trans-woman, Kim Petras, performing at the Grammys.

Kim Petras won a Grammy for her collaboration with Sam Smith, "Holy."

It will take continued resistance against right-wing politicians to ensure that there are more openly trans winners in the future.
