AceShowbiz - Madonna has hit out at Instagram over its stance on female nudity. The "Material Girl" songstress reposted the NSFW photos she initially shared yesterday after the photo-sharing app took them down.
"I'm reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification," the 63-year-old explained in the caption accompanying the saucy pictures she shared on Thursday, November 25. She added, "The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed."
Madonna went on to say that it's "still astounding" to her that "we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman's body to be shown except a nipple." The singer continued, "As if that is the only part of a woman's anatomy that could be sexualized."
"The nipple that nourishes the baby! Can't a mans nipple be experienced as erotic ??!!" Madonna fumed. The "Papa Don't Preach" singer went on to ask, "What about a woman's a** which is never censored anywhere?"
Noting that the post was taken down right before Thanksgiving, Madonna wrote, "Giving thanks that I have managed to maintain my sanity through four decades of censorship…… sexism……ageism and misogyny." She concluded her post as saying, "Perfectly timed with the lies we have been raised to believe about the pilgrims peacefully breaking bread with the Native American Indians when they landed on Plymouth Rock! God bless America [love emoji]," adding a hashtag that read, "#artistsareheretodisturbthepeace."
Madonna shared the sexy photos on Wednesday, November 24 on her Instagram account. In the pictures, she was photographed lying in bed while wearing fishnet stockings, thong underwear and a very racy black bra.
The snaps also caught Madonna hanging on a railing at the end of the bed and posing with the metal in her mouth. In the fourth photo, the singer posed on her back with her nipple fully out, followed by an image of her resting on her side in the same revealing ensemble. In another picture, she knelt on the ground, which gave fans a clear look at her booty through the fishnet tights.
Many Instagram users criticized her for sharing sexy pictures, including 50 Cent. Alongside a screenshot of Madonna's saucy post, the "In Da Club" rapper wrote, "[Eyeball emoji] yo this is the funniest s**t LOL [laughing emoji]." He then mocked her as saying, "That's Madonna under the bed trying to do like a virgin at 63. she shot out, if she don't [sic] get her old a** up. LMFAO [crying laughing emojis]."
