Madonna: the pointy bra is back!
Madonna is currently travelling the globe with her "MDNA" tour and leaving a series of controversial headlines in her wake. She has now been touring since May and has successfully delighted and disgusted hoards of people around the world.
Queen of controversy
Madge's outrageous behaviour so far on this tour includes flashing a breast in Turkey and exposing her behind in Italy. She is also being sued by the French far-right political party the National Front after she compared party leader Marine Le Pen to Hitler in a video.
Madge is one woman who the world won't forget in a hurry...
Under the grey British skies, Madonna took to the stage at Hyde Park in London on 17 July 2012.
Madonna certainly didn't let anything rain on her parade. The show was sold out: 65,000 people braved the weather in order to catch a glimpse of the legend in the flesh (or exposing her flesh, as the case may be). After all, Madonna is the world's top-selling female recording artist of all time.
Safe to say it was a show that will stay forever more with the thousands of fans lucky enough to get a ticket.
"She isn't me"
At her British show, Madge also managed to rebuke the frequent Lady Gaga comparisons... Who wants Gaga when they can have Madonna, right?
It seems that was Madge's thinking, too.
She did a cover of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and added a few lines of "she isn't me, she isn't me..." which certainly got people talking, and a fair few nodding in agreement.
Madonna's infamous conical bra has been appearing at all stops on the tour. It is now a black and clear plastic contraption with a corset... Madge's take on conservative dressing perhaps?
Her overall look for the "MDNA" tour involves a masculine suit with a white shirt (over which sits the conical legend...), leather flares matched with a pair of Converse shoes, slinky underwear and scantily-clad men draped around her.
Madonna clearly understands the outrageous potential of a decent wardrobe (male dancers included). Whatever she wears, it's impossible not to look right at her.
Long live the legend of Madonna
At the age of 53, Madonna is proving to the world that she has no intention whatsoever of behaving herself or slowing down. Whatever she does, everyone wants to hear about it. That in itself a testament to a very successful music career, one which spans over 30 years.
A feminist role model, an artist, a mother and an icon, Madonna is an international source of endless fascination.
And we're guessing this queen of pop is not going to end her reign anytime soon.
