Instagram QUEEN - continued in ARCHIVE - Madonna Posted August 24, 2015 I do understand what you are saying but Madonna has always loved Michael Jackson. I remember reading about her love for him as an artist way back when she was just starting out. I think she tunes off from a lot of the negativity and just continues to like whom she likes. Similar to the way she does not get involved in other's feuds or expect other people to involve themselves in hers. Look how she is still great friends with Stella while Stella is still friends with Goop. Mature and sensible way to be as people can be friends with different people who don't like each other plus think positively about others despite tiffs etc. I don't think she lets the stories of Michael Jackson's supposed disdain of her or his fans comments influence her at all. Gwyneth doesn't make a point of attacking Madonna though. How many of her friends hang out with Piers Morgan? Being friends with people who do not get along is completely different than being friends with someone who attacks her.
