Madonna has shared what she is thankful for this year!
From supposedly coming out as gay to sharing intimate details about her circumcision, the singer has had an eventful year. However, the thing she is most grateful for has nothing to do with either of those updates but about smashing a music-related record.
Madonna Is Thankful For A Billion Streams On Spotify
Madonna shared a snapshot of her looking seemingly nude except for a couple of jewelry pieces around her neck on her Instagram Story. The singer’s long hair is left to slide down her shoulder as she hits an unseen element with her blue, sultry eyes.
Across the image, the Queen of Pop wrote: “Really giving Thanks for so much [yellow heart emoji],” adding, “1 Billion streams on [Spotify] in 2022.” The feat is somewhat admirable, as Madonna has been performing since the ’80s, meaning that the younger generation embraces her catalog.
Nevertheless, it is just one of the many milestones that the 64-year-old will mark before the end of the year. The Blast previously shared that the mother-of-six used steamy pictures to share some information about the re-release of her book, “Sex.”
The “Like a Prayer” hitmaker wore a cleavage-baring corset paired with her signature necklace and a brown fur coat for the shot. Her red-dyed hair is highlighted by the candles illuminating the room as she stares fiercely at herself in the mirror.
“I’d like to put you in a trance,” Madonna teased fans in the caption, then revealed, “YSL presents SEX-Re-Release. Miami Nov 29- Dec 4.” Even though a few critics called her out for attempting to get “attention via nudity,” the “Desperately Seeking Susan” actress continued dropping even more photos.
In one snap, a woman who could pass for the Raising Malawi founder is seen on the book’s cover. The person, who lounged in a chair while dressed in a corset, placed her head in her hands. Behind her was a shirtless man who appeared to be reaching for something.
A second pic featured the “Like a Virgin” singer standing behind a chair with her bosom on display with an addition of white framed glasses and gold satin gloves. In case you missed it, Madonna released “Sex,” her first coffee table book, in October 1992, just a day after dropping her fifth studio album, “Erotica.”
The book quickly flew off the shelves, selling more than 1.5 million copies during its first and only printing until now. The book, which became a highly-sought after collector’s item, also spent three weeks at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list.
The ‘Crazy for You’ Singer Makes NSFW Confession During Q & A Session
In August, The Blast reported that Madonna organized a question-and-answer session with her fans. The seven-minute YouTube video saw the “Mr. Peabody’s Apples” author sharing details about her professional and personal life.
While she gave viewers book recommendations and talked about her upcoming album, career so far, guilty pleasures, and biggest regrets, what caught people’s attention was something else.

As it turned out, Madonna had admitted that both her marriages — to Sean Penn and then Guy Ritchie — were not the “best idea,” in response to the question, “What’s a decision you made that, looking back, maybe wasn’t the best idea?”
She was married to Penn from 1985 to 1989 before she walked down the aisle with Ritchie in 2000. The former couple broke up after eight years but not without Madonna losing some creative juice.
The singer had previously confessed that she was limited in expressing her creativity as an artist during her second marriage. She also mentioned that she would rather get run over by a train than marry again.
Madonna’s next intriguing moment came when she disclosed that she was obsessed with sex. The 63-time top-ten hits maker stated that the act kept her going, adding that it was the secret sauce of her success.
That confession seems to be on par with the singer’s songs, performances, and recent social media posts. In fact, the “Deeper and Deeper” artist recently claimed that her openness about sex paved the way for Miley Cyrus, Cardi B, and Kim Kardashian to unashamedly appear naked on magazine covers and sing about their “WAP.”
