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?

Please stop giving this hag the attention she so craves.

Kathie on

when will she realize this isn’t the 80s anymore & she’s old? she & Justin Bieber should hang out.

She looks old. And that’s gross. Shave the pit for God’s sake!!

The side of her face looks spackled as does her clevage. Sorry MADGE but I think it’s time to hang up the days when you used to trot around in a bra becuase it is no longer sexy.
Honestly…maybe this is like in Death Becomes Her and the ladies start falling apart after finding the fountain of youth.

Miriam on

It looks like a strip of fake hair was glued to her armpit.

Kell on

Didn’t she do this ages ago?

realist on

This woman needs a friend.

Anna M on

If this is what she needs to do for attention for her career….it speaks for itself.

First off, hairy armpits aren’t shocking. Secondly, are we supposed to believe that armpit hair is real? Looks a little too blonde to be her natural armpit hair color.
