Kevin Winter/Getty Images via ABCAfter her manager took to Instagram to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Madonna’s acclaimed album Ray of Light, the Queen of Pop responded by complaining about the hoops she’s allegedly been made to jump through while making albums in recent years.

Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, posted a video on Instagram with a lengthy caption about Ray of Light, writing, “One of the greatest albums of all time.. It was the first @Madonna album I worked on..Love this woman. Love this album….Those were really fun times.”

But among the comments, captured in a screenshot by a Twitter user, were two from Madonna herself. While Ray of Light was made with one major collaborator — William Orbit — her most recent albums have featured literal armies of collaborators, and she appears to be fed up with that process.

“Can you help me now please!!” Madonna wrote. “Remember when i made records with other artists from beginning to end and I was allowed to be a visionary and not have to go to song writing camps where No one can sit still for more than 15 minutes.”

These comments echo an interview Madonna did with Billboard around the time of her 2014 disc Rebel Heart, where she complained about “a lot of cooks in the kitchen.” She said it was “very, very, very, very hard” to collaborate with “young DJs who never can stay in one city for more than five days.”

“It’s a chaotic way to work…there’s a lot of confusion,” she complained, noting that she’d “start things with one group of people, and then I’d start something with somebody else, and then they’d have to leave…and the other person would come back.”

The good news: in her comments, Madonna hinted that she has new music on the way.
