Madonna has been making headlines recently for her dance moves and many people have mixed emotions towards her twerking.
In a segment on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, TV personality Piers Morgan called Madonna’s twerking on the promo “utterly embarrassing,” saying it made him feel physically sick.
Morgan also called the pop star a “walking, talking train wreck” and said that it was embarrassing to watch “a 58 year old” twerking.

Madonna addressed the issue of ageism in a recent interview with Billboard. The Vogue singer said she believes that women experience ageism more than men.
“Age is only brought up with regard to women. It’s connected to sexism, chauvinism and misogyny. When Leonardo [DiCaprio] is 60 years old, no one is going to talk about his relevance,” Madonna said. “Am I relevant as a female in this society that hates women? Well, to people who are educated and are not chauvinists or misogynists, yes.”
“I understand that. ‘Relevance’ is a catchphrase that people throw out because we live in a world full of discrimination,” the singer explained.
Madonna recently showed off her twerking moves on stage with singer Ariana Grande on Dec. 2 at Madonna’s Raising Malawi benefit in Miami Beach.
The two performers turned their backs to the audience and treated the crowd to some double-twerking action.

Social-media users noticed something different and “weird” about Madonna’s butt after her twerk-off with the 23-year-old pop sensation. It was an avalanche of insults and mockery on Twitter.
This isn’t the first time Madonna has been accused of having plastic surgery. Her MET Gala appearance earlier this year had some calling her “unrecognizable.”
Madonna has a concert film debuting on Dec.9, based on her Rebel Heart tour. The new film covers the seven-month, 55-city tour that ended in March.
