Major side-eye.

 

Madonna took the stage at the Billboard Music Awards, dressed as Willy Wonka’s mistress, to tribute our beloved Prince.

Nope!

The “Like A Virgin” singer appeared on a glittery purple throne, starting her performance with a cover of Sinead O’Connor’s hit, “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

Like, we know Prince wrote that song, but is that really how you want to open a Prince tribute? I mean he was music royalty, our eccentric carefree brother, the purple one, the vibrant one, and the tribute to his musical catalog opens with a lackluster, low energy song? And the struggle vocals?

No, no, no.

Where’s the sex? Where’s the sensuality? Where’s the magic?

The 57-year-old tried to salvage the moment by bringing Stevie Wonder on stage for  rendition of “Purple Rain,” and it didn’t help.

The Internet erupted with shade, including an epic side eye from BET on Twitter:

And they weren’t the only ones disappointed:

Yikes!

Madonna appears blind to the bullish*t, writing on IG,

Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to. Whatever your age, gender, or skin color!”

Okay then.
