The Idolator Interview: The Knocks
The dance duo talks its debut album, staying true to New York and Madonna (duh).

Pop titan Madonna appears on four special edition covers of Cosmopolitan‘s May 2015 issue, all shot by Ellen von Unwerth.

Madonna appears as a Playboy bunny on one cover, bites a string of oversized pearls in another and wears a dominatrix mask in two more of them. All four images are fitting, given Madonna’s unapologetic personality and how both artists enjoy being provocative.

A model-turned-photographer, von Unwerth has snapped photo series with sadomasochistic narratives, in addition to Britney Spears for 2007’s Blackout and Rihanna for 2009’s Rated R and 2011’s Talk That Talk. Her last editorial shoot was of Azealia Banks for Playboy.

See a few photos from Madonna’s Cosmo shoot below, then check out other, more detailed snapshots at Madonnarama. All four covers can be ordered at the magazine’s official website.
