Madonna’s MDNA world tour continued to go off with as many hitches as possible this week, as the Material Girl made yet another attempt to spark controversy. The 53-year-old pop star apparently decided that the Türk Telekom Arena in Istanbul, Turkey would be a great place to show a little skin.
While performing “Human Nature” from 1994’s Bedtime Stories, Madonna gave a brief striptease culminating in a clearly purposeful flash of her right nipple. In response, broadcaster Piers Morgan took to Twitter this morning to inquire if this nip-slip was the “most embarrassing, cringe-worthy, desperate moment in the history of music.”
This news comes just a few days after the MDNA tour’s controversial kickoff show in Tel Aviv Israel. While onstage at Ramat Gan Stadium, Madonna displayed an image of Marine Le Pen (president of France’s right-wing National Front party) with a swastika across her forehead. With two scandals in the first four shows, the rest of this 80-date tour is sure to be full of excitement. Watch video of Madonna’s onstage striptease below. [New York Daily News]
