(Madonna previously told Howard Stern dating Tupac “had got me all riled up about life in general,” so when she went on David Letterman’s show, “I was feeling very gangsta” and started swearing at the late-night host; Tupac also alludes to an interview she gave in the ’90s in which she hinted at dating multiple rappers in addition to Tupac.) “But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my 'image' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was.”And while he describes himself as “a young man with limited experience,” the rapper also offers his sage advice, warning Madonna “not everyone is as honorable as they seem.” Their split, judging by the apologetic tone of the letter, was none too amicable, yet by the end of the letter the rapper seems prepared to put it behind them.
Tupac closes the letter offering his friendship again to Madonna, admitting he had “grown both spiritually and mentally.
