AceShowbiz - Madonna is celebrating the re-release of her controversial "Sex" book. To commemorate the special day, the 64-year-old "Like a Virgin" singer shares a series of sultry photos of her showcasing her fit physique and smooth visage.
On Wednesday, November 23, the "Vogue" hitmaker turned to her Instagram account to entertain fans with her sexy pictures. In one of the images, the Queen of Pop could be seen posing in a fitted cream-colored lacy corset, putting on a busty display.
Madonna also draped a large fur coat over her shoulders. Her long ginger-colored locks were parted in the middle. There was an array of candles sitting on the desk in front of her to create a more pleasing ambiance. "I'd like to put you in a trance," she captioned her post. "YSL presents SEX-Re-Release [water drops emoji] Miami Nov 29- Dec 4."
Fans immediately took to her comment section to compliment the star. "Bow down haters to the biggest ever Madonna," one user commented. Another added, "Girl you have put the whole world in a trance for decades! We are enamored by you and we love you!"
Madonna teamed up with Yves Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello to co-curate an exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of her coffee table book. Rive Droite re-issued 800 copies of the iconic singer's groundbreaking X-rated tome, some of which will be signed and eventually auctioned off to benefit her Raising Malawi charity. The exhibit will showcase photographs by Steven Meisel and Fabien Baron. Meanwhile, coinciding T-shirts and totes will be on sale at YSL in Miami's Design District.
When the book was first released in 1992, Madonna earned the equivalent of $38.6 million in today's money for the 132-page aluminum-covered book that consisted of sexually provocative and explicit images. It went on to sell 1.5 million copies worldwide. While controversial at the time, the book is now well-regarded for its social and cultural impact and is considered a bold post-feminist and LGBT-beloved work.
Earlier in October, Madonna took to Instagram to reflect on the backlash of her "Sex" book. "30 years ago I published a book called S.E.X. In addition to photos of me naked there were photos of Men kissing Men, Woman kissing Woman and Me kissing everyone," she wrote.
Madonna then name-dropped Cardi B, Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus, stating, "Now Cardi B can sing about her WAP. Kim Kardashian can grace the cover of any magazine with her naked a** and Miley Cyrus can come in like a wrecking ball. You're welcome b***hes."
However, Cardi wasn't happy her name was mentioned. "I literally [paid] this woman homage so many times 'cause I grew up listening to her… she can make her point without putting clown emojis and getting slick out the mouth," the wife of Offset tweeted, "These icons really become disappointments once [you] make it in the industry. That's why I keep to myself."
A few hours later, fortunately, Cardi herself insinuated that she and Madonna had ended their beef. "I talked to Madonna …It was beautiful….Have a great day and drive safely yallll," the "Bodak Yellow" raptress declared. Madonna, for her part, posted a video of her dancing and lip-syncing along to Cardi's GloRilla collab "Tomorrow 2". Over the clip, she sweetly wrote, "[red heart emoji] u @iamcardib."
