After four years out of the spotlight as pop’s reigning queen, Madonna returned with a new album and a world tour in 2012. Of course, the Material Girl and controversy go hand-in-hand, and she stirred up trouble on more than one occasion while expressing herself. And we’re guessing she’s not sorry for any of them — after all, as she informed us before, it’s human nature!
In honor of Madge’s 54th birthday, we decided to look back at her naughtiest, most talked-about moments so far this year. (We have a feeling she wouldn’t want us to celebrate any other way.) Flip through the gallery above to see how Madonna is keeping tongues wagging.
