Madonna has been accused of photoshopping her face onto the body of an Australian woman in her 20s.

On May 1, 2015, Madonna shared a photo of herself in a tight houndstooth skirt and Joy Division T-shirt on Instagram to promote her Rebel Heart album.

The only problem is that while it’s undoubtedly Madge’s face in the photo, the body actually belongs to 28-year-old Amelia Goldie, who has brought the bizarre photo-stealing to the public’s attention in a viral TikTok video this month.

Madonna made no mention of Photoshop when she first shared the photo six years ago, captioning it: ‘I look Kewl.’

But Amelia soon noticed that the singer’s body looked incredibly familiar. 

Speaking to BuzzFeed, she said that she first ‘thought it was a joke,’ but then ‘realized it wasn’t because it was [posted on] her official account.’

‘I tried to reach out via Instagram to her team twice, to no response,’ she said.

She shared the photo on her own Instagram account in 2017, writing: ‘Two years today since queen @madonna used a photo of me on her Instagram with her face photoshopped onto it. Still the best/weirdest/funniest thing to ever happen to me.’

Then, on March 10 of this year, Amelia shared the funny memory again — where it’s earned the attention of two million TikTok users. 

‘When Madonna posts a photo of herself to IG to promote her album but it’s actually your body (I’m not joking),’ she wrote.  

She was even more surprised to realize that, six years later, the photo is still on the star’s Instagram.

‘I told my parents and they still think it’s a joke and can’t comprehend how or why it’s happened. It’s hilarious,’ she told Vice. 

‘I [would] definitely laugh and say I’m flattered, but of course that I wish I was credited!’ she added.
