Today’s Reminder That Madonna Did Everything First: 6 Nipple-Baring Pics From 1990

Pop Perspective: "Bitch I'm Madonna" Video
Find out what all the Idolator editors had to say about Madonna's new video.

With Miley Cyrus dropping nudes at will and Demi Lovato baring her butt (and copious side-boob) for Vanity Fair, it’s fair to say that the nude revolution of 2015 is in full swing. (The guys are joining in too). We’ve reached the point where it would be more shocking for an artist to remain fully clothed than bare all on Instagram, which is dope. The body-positive movement is stronger than ever and the stigma surrounding nudity has all but vanished.

It’s as good a time as any then, to pay tribute to nude pioneer Madonna. While she didn’t exactly do it first (Grace Jones beat her to it by at least a decade), the pop icon definitely brought nudity to the masses with her infamous Sex book, raunchy videos and eye-popping photo shoots. Take this Herb Ritts-helmed pictorial from 1990. The 57-year-old was freeing the nipple before today’s pop divas were even born! Click through the iconic shoot, which I believe was for the “Keep It Together” single cover, up top.
