Thirty years ago, if Madonna had flashed her nipple on stage in Turkey it would have caused pandemonium.Sad, desperate, sick and barely selling any records, this old hag, who made a name for herself dissing and mocking religion, is still considered an icon to the anti-God Left. And now, clearly desperate to remain a household name, she's "beefing" with Lady Gaga and pulling the same "look at me!" stunts she pulled when she was in her 20's. What a sorry excuse of a human being.
This week, she was lucky to get a raised eyebrow and a muffled yawn.
Madge was a pioneer when it came to deploying shock and awe using her own body.
During her iconic Blond Ambition World Tour she got in trouble with the Pope for simulating masturbation and who can forget the arty book of sexy snaps she did with photographer Steven Meisel?
But since she’s spawned a world full of risque pop divas like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Christina Aguilera, whose daily uniforms for walking down the road and going food shopping seem to be bras and knickers, it all seems a little unoriginal.
Yes, Madge we know you like showing off your body – which at 53-years-old is undeniably looking good – but just like her refusal to date a man even 10 years within her age range and her attempts to convince everyone she hasn’t had plastic surgery (yeah, right), her nip flash just shows how painfully desperate the singer is to stay stuck in the past.
It has all the shock factor of your favourite elderly aunt trying to bump and grind on the dancefloor at a wedding.
For an artist as innovative and cutting-edge as Madonna once was, surely she can come up with something more interesting?
In 1985, Penthouse and Playboy once published some nude photos of Madonna that were taken when she was a struggling performer in need of cash.
At the Live Aid charity, the star refused to take her jacket off because ‘[the media] might hold it against me ten years from now’.
Now that was truly shocking. Maybe Madge could keep that in mind for next time?
