Madonna is facing an online backlash for calling the theft a form of artistic rape and terrorism. Madonna hadn’t planned on releasing her thirteenth album, Rebel Heart, until spring 2015. But leakers had other plans for the Queen of Pop as they leaked early mixes of her thirteen tracks onto the Internet this week.
In a post on Instagram, since deleted, Madonna used pointed language to deal with hackers who were attempting to destroy her artistic process.
“This is artistic rape!! These are early leaked demo’s half of which wont even make it on my album the other half have changed and evolved. This is a form of terrorism. Wtf!!!! Why do people want to destroy the artistic process. Why steal. Why not give me the opportunity to finish and give you my very best.” read the post.
Madonna fears that someone from her team, who has access to her passwords, is collaborating with the thief to damage her.
If this was not enough, Madonna was stunned to discovering unreleased photos from shoots also making their way onto the web. She posted one of the offending images on Instagram with a note reading that read, “I am asking my true fans and supporters who respect me as an artist and a human to not get involved with the purchasing trading or posting of unreleased images or music. I hope and pray we find the source of the leaks soon. Until then I am grateful for any leads or info and even more grateful for your support and loyalty!”
The hacker, believed to operate out of Israel, has been accessing personal photos and unreleased music and selling them on the black market in Madonna merchandise.
Items can exchange hands for thousands of pounds among hardcore fans of the singer.
The situation got so bad that Madonna recently turned detective and Skyped one trader for about half and hour.
Madonna has been slammed for comparing the leak to terrorist acts including the recent Pakistan school massacre.
“How appropriate do you think it is to refer to the theft of your music as terrorism days after a hundred and thirty two children are massacred!” read her post.
