Pop diva Madonna had earlier compared her album leak to an "act of terrorism" and "rape" and got critisised for it on the social media. The "Like A Virgin" singer quickly deleted her controversial post from her Instagram account but in her latest interview, the singer has reiterated her point. Madonna says she was "living in a state of terror" when her latest songs got hacked and she believes that there could be a group of hackers who purposely did so.

"Obviously there is a person, or a group of people behind this that were essentially terrorising me. I don't want to sound alarming, but certainly that's how I felt," Madonna is quoted as saying by The Guardian. She said that she would not have felt the same way if it was not for her music and as an artist it was a very "devastating" experience for her. The singer lost her temper last week when few of her unfinished songs leaked on to Internet. The "Frozen" singer went all the way to call the leak as "artistic rape" and "a form of terrorism." Critics felt that Madonna's words were deemed insensitive as they coincided with horrific hostage killings in Sydney and also came at the same time when many children lost their lives to terrorism in Pakistan.

However, the 56-year-old singer apologised to her fans for her sudden outburst but also made her point. "I'm an artistic person, I'm very expressive. I'm sorry if words alarm people, but that's what it felt like," said Madonna to the website. The 56-year-old singer feels that it was not a "consensual" agreement with anyone when her songs leaked and it should be considered as a theft. Following the leak of her songs, Madonna released six finished tracks on iTunes from her upcoming album "Rebel Heart." The Queen of Pop is working on her album "Rebel Heart," which is scheduled to be released in 2015. After the release of her songs, the blonde singer gained the number one spot on the iTunes chart in 36 countries over the weekend.
