Madonna's Latest Beauty Statement: Hairy Armpits?!

Madonna‘s no stranger to the OMG Instagram moment, but one of her recent posts is very revealing. No, we’re not talking about her cleavage, though it’s on full display in a lacy, black bra top. Instead, we can’t divert our attention from the diva’s underarms. It appears she eschewed her razor for au naturel hair growth … or is boldly introducing us to the underarm merkin.

“Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove” Madge humorously captioned the edgy photo above.

Did she miss No Shave November by a few months? Is she spearheading a new art project? Is it for an upcoming photo shoot or a throwback picture? All questions that come to mind, but we have a feeling the star is just trying to make a statement. Plus, she’s already revealed that she’s skipped her armpit shaving routine in the past.

“I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2011. “So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”

Considering Madonna is internationally renowned for her head-turning style choices, we’re betting her new grooming routine (or lack thereof) is intended to be provocative. Is it really surprising the woman who wears grills to the gym and flashes fans at concerts is flaunting her unshaven armpits? Definitely not.

What do you think: Is Madge’s new look real or fake? Would you ever give your razor a rest?

LOL !!! Desperate much?!

Considering her age probably has to dye her underarm hair like her

She is just nasty…and old and no longer attractive. Guess she felt the need to stir up some attention. This is the wrong kind…

This woman is disguisting, washed-up, and I wish we didn’t have to be subjected to her little PR stunts anymore. Especially when they’re this off the wall. To be clear, I have no problem with people not shaving, its the overaged face and her boobs suffocating out of that bra meant for a woman half her age that bothers me.

Never mind her underarms. Someone needs to tell her to stay out of Lourdes closet. What might have looked good when she was 18 looks kind of scary at 50+ and this photo is proof.

Gross. Anything to stay relevant. But seriously… gross.

Don King in a headlock…Madonna needs to quit playing around!!

KymNoelle on

Fake! And she’s wearing makeup and has a hairstyle. Who is she trying to fool?
