Madonna Exposes Her Nipples On The Cover Of ‘Vogue Italia’: 4 Pics

Madonna's 'Rebel Heart Tour' In LA: Live Review
Madonna's 'Rebel Heart' tour was a wild and often nostalgic ride. Read our review.

Madonna won’t be fully appreciated until she’s gone. But, one day, historians will look back on the 58-year-old’s latest Vogue Italia shoot as a perfect example of her one-woman crusade against sexism and ageism in the music industry. Pop’s baddest girl exposes her breasts on one of the issue’s multiple, #unapologetic covers and writes about encouraging strong women in an explanatory Instagram post. “Good Morning World!,” she exclaimed. “So lucky to have worked on the last issue of Italian Vogue with the amazing and inspiring Franca Sozzani.”

“God Bless you Franca Sozanni not only for what you did for the World of Fashion but for encouraging strong Independent Women to take risks!” The shoot was helmed by frequent collaborator Steven Klein and shot entirely on a polaroid camera. It’s dark, beautiful and unnerving. In other words, quintessentially Madonna. With any luck the queen of pop will release new music this year. Radio won’t play it and fans will complain about it not sounding like Confessions On A Dance Floor, but her very existence at this point is an important act of defiance.
