From Sky Ferreira's Instagram: "That one time @madonna & I compared cup sizes. Neither of are as Madonna would say- "unapologetic" #BoobsOfPopMusic. (thank you LA weekly for the apology.)"

Sky Ferreira is speaking out the sexist garbage that she puts up with on a regular basis both as a pop star and as a woman.

Last week, LA Weekly published a widely reviled piece and a textbook example of the male gaze objectifying a woman. Ferreira sent out flurry of tweets last night, making it clear that the problem isn't just the LA Weekly piece, "I spend/spent so much time being frustrated by this type of bullshit that it really took a toll on me in a personal level."

Ferreira writes that she pondered whether and how to respond, fearing her words would be misconstrued and used against her. So far her only "response" had been posting a snapshot with Madonna on Instagram, making a tongue-in-cheek reference to the LA Weekly column: "That one time @madonna & I compared cup sizes."
