For the past twelve years, Madonna and her manager Guy Oseary have thrown an ULTRA EXCLUSIVO Oscars after-party at his mansion, and the guest list is supposedly tighter than her face and guests aren’t allowed to take pictures. Because you want to be able to snort a line off of your Oscar statue’s ass crack in peace without worrying about some trick taking a picture of it and tagging you on Instagram. Guests aren’t allowed to post pics from the party on their social media, but you better believe Madonna made sure that we all saw a pic of her arm around her one-time nemesis Lady Gaga, and no, she’s not choking that reductive bitch out. Not in the pic that was posted anyway.
When Gaga put out Born This Way in 2010, anybody with a sense of hearing thought it sounded like Madonna’s Express Yourself as copied on a half-broken Xerox machine. Madge and Gaga spit out words about that through the press with Madge calling it “reductive.” In Netflix’s 2017 documentary about Gaga, she shat on Madge for not calling her reductive to her reductive face.
“She wouldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that I was reductive. Telling me you think I’m a piece of shit through the media? It’s like a guy passing me a note through his friend.”
And up until last December, it seemed like Madge was keeping their overcooked beef going by sharing a video of her saying that “100 people” shit before Gaga said it a billion times during press for A Star Is Born. But if their beef is still alive, they pushed it to the side at Madge’s Oscar party in the name of getting this picture of them lying on some paper as Madge eats our souls with her eyes. Madge looks like a rich lady who watched Lawrence of Arabia once and Gaga looks like a high school theater student who watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s once.

The 91st Academy Awards were filled with historic firsts and emotional moments, from @blackpanther‘s Ruth E. Carter and Hannah Beachler becoming the first black women to win in their respective categories (Costume Design and Production Design) to @ladygaga and Bradley Cooper’s stirring performance of their award-winning song “Shallow.” After the event, the biggest names in #Hollywood celebrated at “The Party,” entertainment mogul @guyoseary and @madonna’s famed after-party, where there is a strict ban on social media posts. TIME partnered at the event with the artist and photographer JR—a 2018 #TIME100 honoree—for an exclusive look at last night’s winners and partygoers. See more pictures at the link in bio.

Because I guess they didn’t want people to scream Photoshop, a video is out of them having some kind of weird stare off as Khia serenades them in the background:

So it looks like their feud is over…. until later today when Gaga can’t find her Oscar anywhere and screams the naranja paint off her face. And as Gaga does that, Madge will be in her lair, holding that Oscar while calmly scratching Lady Gaga’s name out before scribbling “Madonna For Evita” on it.
