The Queen of Pop and Queen Bey are clearly in alliance.
Madonna treated her Instagram followers to two special snapshots of Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter show in Brooklyn on Thursday, including a photo of the “Flawless” singer kissing the Material Mom’s daughter, Mercy James.
To caption the sweet moment between the fellow pop diva and her 7-year-old, Madonna writes, “Mercy James gets a big fat one from the Queen. B!”
Madonna also posted an action shot of Beyoncé bustin’ a move in her purple-sequined jumpsuit, adding the description, “Mrs. Carter crushes the BK with her bad a––show! Girls run the world!”
Beyoncé shocked the music industry by releasing a surprise self-titled album last week with 14 songs and 17 videos, explaining that she hoped to engross fans in the way that Michael Jackson’s Thriller album captivated her as a child.
“I miss that immersive experience,” she said in a video announcement on her Facebook page. “Now people only listen to a few seconds of a song on the iPods and they don’t really invest in the whole album.”
