While the internet makes fun of the singer’s physical appearance, Rosie O’Donnell isn’t worried about her friend Madonna.
“You know, Madonna is one of the most famous women in the world and she’s been like that all my life,” she told Page Six in an exclusive interview recently. “She used to say harsh words to him when she was at the height of her fame.
I remember when we were filming ‘A League of Their Own’ and she had brown hair and we were in an elevator and grown men would say to her, ‘I like you more as a blonde.

“I’ve been humiliated by the media since the beginning of my career, but I understand this is a test and I’m happy to break ground so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come.” He continued before quoting Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul”.
O’Donnell noted that Madonna “never had a problem defending herself.”
“She knows who she is, what she wants, how she wants to look, what she wants to wear, what she wants to say. And I think he’s strong enough to fend off people’s complaints about him, now and forever.”

“Everyone [on the internet] He has an opinion these days, and the only way to truly survive is only the strong survive, not to hear all the noise,” he continued.
The actress, who is frank about her struggle with depression, also shared that she is in a good place right now.
“I’m way over the top,” he explained. “And ever since Columbine[shooting at school]that is, since I started taking anti-depression and anxiety medications. And I am so grateful that I have those drugs and take them religiously. I never skip a day. To survive, thrive, and be with my family. I’m on top of anything I need.”
