Madonna Flashes Nipple at Istanbul Concert
The queen of pop is known for crossing lines on and off stage. But she won't be claiming this slip of the nipple was a wardrobe malfunction: Madonna made it perfectly clear (see for yourself in the NSFW video, below) that she was deliberately flashing the crowd of roughly 55,000 people in Turkey's largest city.
The singer, 53, was performing a rendition of her 1995 hit, "Human Nature," when her dance routine turned into a strip tease. Her fans cheered for her as she began taking off her shirt and undoing her pants. The dance culminated in Madonna pulling down her bra to briefly expose her right breast. The singer is in the middle of her world tour, promoting her new album, MDNA.Nipplegate II is the second time the singer has stirred a controversy in just over a week - during the first night of her world tour to promote new album "MDNA" the singer flashed an image of France's National Front leader Marine Le Pen on video screens during her show with a swastika superimposed over the politician's forehead.
Le Pen has since vowed to sue the singer if she replays the image, according to the UK's Daily Mail Newspaper - especially if she does during her Paris show next month.
But perhaps Le Pen's comment about the stunt says it all: "We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes."
