Pole Dancing Nuns? Watch Madonna’s Most Outrageous Moments
Looking back on Madonna’s resume and at her 2015 Grammy Awards performance, one or two major theatrics can inevitably be expected on her upcoming “Rebel Heart” tour. At 56 years old, the pop icon took the Grammy performance by the horns matador-style, ascended above the crowd (literally), and boasted some dance moves that could probably outdo your average, fit 25-year-old. Nothing too far-out given her track record. With that in mind, she gave ticket-holding fans something to, um, look forward to on her “Rebel Heart” tour: pole dancing nuns. In honor of the unapologetic pop queen, here are some of her most controversial moments to relive like they’re shiny and new.
Vanity Unfair – When no one expected Vogue to go Victorian (whatever, it was awesome).
Throwing Shade at Gaga – Is it getting cool in here?
Like a What? – Madonna gives a hyper-sultry performance at the 1984 MTV Awards, officially schooling us on her I-don’t-really-care philosophy
Bombs Away– That would be 14 (yes, fourteen) F-bombs dropped in 13 minutes. On live television. You can’t say you’re not impressed.
The Pope Says Nope– After stirring up a mighty bit of controversy by burning a few crosses, the pope decidedly banned her from entering Italy.
Girl Crush– At least she isn’t touching herself with a giant foam finger; Lady Madonna keeps it classy.
“I Want to Rule the World”– We think it’s safe to check that off your bucket list by now.
