According to Diplo, Madonna‘s not getting a fair shake these days. He said, despite her immense influence on pop music and culture today, it seems no one wants her to succeed now.

“She created the world we live in,” he told Rolling Stone. “It already sucks to be a woman in the music industry, but to be a boss woman is even harder. She sold out her tour in minutes, but no one seems to want her to succeed — ‘Madonna, we’ve been there, done that, now we’re about Kim Kardashian.'”

The producer and DJ continued, turning attention directly to her new album, Rebel Heart, on which he produced a number of tracks, including the new single, “Bitch I’m Madonna.”

“Her song ‘Ghosttown’ was a guaranteed Number One for anybody else, but she didn’t get a fair shot,” he said. “With ‘Bitch I’m Madonna,’ everyone said there’s no way it will go anywhere, but I’m like, ‘Screw it, it represents you more than anything.'”
