Madonna Poses In Underwear In New Instagram Photo

Madonna Poses In Underwear In New Instagram Photo
Last year Madonna revealed Instagram asked her to ease up on posting racy photos to her account – but that hasn't stopped the singer from posing in her underwear for her fans.

Madonna wrote, "Today I decided to sing in my underwear! No one seemed to mind! #loveyoufromtheinsideout #artforfreedom," along with a black-and-white photo of herself in her undies.

Madonna has previously uploaded photos of bondage cartoons and made headlines for showing off her armpit hair back in March.

We wonder if Instagram is going to send Madonna another strongly-worded letter.

9 Music Videos Once Considered Controversial

April 17th, 2014 5:03pm EDT
Fiona Apple
Entertainment boundaries change all the time and while musicians have always been provocateurs, some of their music videos end up laughably formulaic after a few years. Here are 9 music videos once considered controversial.

Criminal - Fiona Apple. The song that made Fiona a hit in 1997 was attached to a dim music video that seemed to follow heroin addicts. The frail singer drapes herself across furniture and in bathtubs in various states of undress. When it was released, critics saw it as an advertisement for drug use and even child porn thanks to Apple's slight stature.

20 Extremely Religious Celebrities
Candace Cameron Bure of "Full House" fame and her brother Kirk Cameron ("Growing Pains") are very religious. As Kirk became an outspoken Christian evangelist and actor, Cameron also became more public with her faith in the late 1990s, writing for Christian websites, speaking at churches, and endorsing Christian organizations, businesses and charities.

And the actress says her belief in Christianity helped her battle bulimia.

She told Yahoo! in December 2013, "I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, 'cause clearly it wasn't a healthy way to deal with things. So tha...

In his new book "Love Life," Rob Lowe opens up about a date he had with Madonna. The actor, who was 20 at the time, attended one of her concerts in Los Angeles in 1984, and the singer, then 26, asked him to visit her backstage.

He explains: "She was cute and she was young and she was single, and so I sat front row... she was a revelation... 'Madonna would like to see you backstage,' a security guard said as the house lights came up... She had flawless skin and eyes that imparted secrets... she asked what movie I was working on and so I told her a little about St. Elmo's Fire, which I had j...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Of course the looks from last Sunday's Grammy Awards are going to dominate this week's fails. First we have Paris Hilton, who ruined a beautiful white gown by adding faux-nude panels. Now it just looks tacky.

Madonna tried her best Colonel Sanders impression during the Grammys. Beautiful song, sure, but her outfit was ugly. Her red carpet look wasn't much better.

Someone loved Pharrell's hat enough to create a twitter acco...

The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2014 Grammy Awards
The Grammy Awards are music's biggest event of the year, and stars flooded the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, showing off their sexy (and not-so-sexy) looks on the red carpet.

Actress Paula Patton took a risk by wearing a zebra print dress featuring two lion heads growling at her neckline. Robin Thicke's wife got a lot of attention for the dress - but not in a good way. She tops our list of the worst dressed at the 56th annual event.

Pharrell Williams also made quite a statement by showing up in a giant hat, which many compared to the Arby's logo.

But it wasn't all bad. Stars i...

Glory Days - 10 Celebs Who Just Stopped Caring
Celebrities are always under the microscope. Looking beautiful is part of their job. The media seemingly takes great joy in exploiting every bad angle they can, sometimes down to the point of berating celebrities based off the worst possible paparazzi snapshots.

While we don't endorse that, there are exceptions. Sometimes, when stars stay out of the limelight for extended amounts of time, they don't do all the necessary upkeep that they do when they are constantly in the public eye.

Sometimes, it gets a little out of control. Occasionally, it looks almost as if they just decided to stop c...

Madonna & Brahim Zaibat
Madonna and her backup dancer boyfriend Brahim Zaibat have parted ways. The singer, 55, reportedly ended her three-year relationship with the 25-year-old after he signed up for the French version of "Dancing With The Stars."

A source told Perez Hilton that Madonna thought his new gig "was too cheesy" and that's why she broke it off with Zaibat.

Madonna Pens Open Letter Supporting Gay Rights In Russia

December 4th, 2013 9:56am EST
International philanthropist Madonna has stepped up her battle for gay rights in Russia by writing an open letter calling for change.

Miley Cyrus took it all off for her "Wrecking Ball" video, swinging nude -- save for a pair of work boots -- on the title object. She received plenty of flak for the racy video, most likely because of her age and the fact that she's a role model for millions of young girls.

But she's definitely not the first to bare all in a music short, plenty of other artists have either gone nude or had a model, a girlfriend -- even a model girlfriend -- strip down for one of their videos.

Rapper Nelly Calls Miley Cyrus The New Madonna

October 15th, 2013 10:19pm EDT
Is Miley Cyrus the next Madonna? That's what one fellow music star thinks.

Rapper Nelly compared the two stars during an interview with The UK's Daily Star, saying he sees an awful lot of similarities between the two.

"Miley's a great talent. She's young and ambitious and wants to do it her way," he tells the Daily Star. "Madonna did it her way, and she became one of the greatest female entertainers of all time. Madonna grew up in the age of no social media. She wasn't under the type of scrutiny Miley's under."

Nelly also says that it's the outrageous, attention-grabbing acts that are th...
