‘Playboy’ Magazine Releases “Madonna: The Lost Nudes” In Their May 2015 Issue: 7 NSFW Photos

Madonna & Drake Speak On Coachella Make Out Sesh
The two artists couldn't care less about what you think!

Madonna has been quite the polarizing pop star as of late, from the much-discussed chart position and sales of her Rebel Heart LP to her shocking make-out session with Drake at Coachella. The singer is now involved in another potential media fiasco that will also get people talking — but this time around, the decision is not her doing.

For their May 2015 issue, Playboy magazine has released a series titled “Madonna: The Lost Nudes.” They are black + white photos of the entertainer from when she posed as a model back in 1979 for a rumored mere $25, just four years before her debut album dropped. These outtakes are new to the public eye (Playboy bought and published the original photo shoot for their 1985 issue), and show a 20-year-old Madge flaunting her curves in the nude and posing with a cat while fully-clothed. The photos were all taken by photographers Lee Friedlander and Martin H.M. Schreiber (click here to see the NSFW shoot in full).

These newly-surfaced images are collected in a book showcasing Schreiber’s work, titled A Retrospective 1966-2014, which will be available in June. Depending on how you look at it, this can be a great move to boost Madonna’s current career or it can be a slight downfall as she didn’t want anything to do with the 1985 Playboy issue in the first place.
