I bet Instagram's "Free The Nipple" equality movement squealed with delight when they saw the Queen of provocation's latest shoot with Mert & Marcus for Interview Magazine - yes, Madonna got her tits out. And Beyonce's worst enemy, Annie Lennox, tutted at yet another female icon letting the feminists down. Really?
Let's look at the evidence. 1. Madonna has had her tits out since 1980-something. 2. Annie Lennox shouldn't be so judgmental about a pair of tits when she hangs out with the likes of Bono and Celine Dion. 3. Madonna encoded sexuality, beauty and power into a performance embodiment which celebrates female empowerment, so what's wrong with showing some skin in an artfully tasteful way? 4. I couldn't think of a number four, so let's just watch the scene in "A League Of Their Own" where Madonna says "What if my bosoms come flying out?."
Feminist opinions aside, it's the return of her Madge and that's all we really care about, and if you're offended by her tits, then it's probably because those nipples are photoshopped to the point of looking like they were dipped in ice before their official coming out to poke your eyeballs party.
