Madonna is crowning herself the baddest of them all!
After she celebrated “all the little rebels” at the recently held Grammys Awards on Sunday, February 5, the legendary singer has reacted to critics attacking her for continuously altering her physical appearance and features.
To that end, the “Queen of Pop” posted a clip that gave viewers an extra look at the outfit she wore to the annual ceremony, including the riding crop. The video also contains the new title she has bestowed upon herself amid the ongoing drama.
Madonna Replies Critics With A New Video Highlighting Her Facial Features
Although Madonna has one of the most famous faces in the world, she seemed unrecognizable when she hit the Grammys stage on Sunday. The “Material Girl” singer’s new look immediately caused a wave of curiosity and interest over what changes she effected to give her a drastically different look.
However, instead of providing an answer, the established singer posted a video highlighting the black and white ensemble she wore for her Sunday night performance. In the video posted on Monday, Madonna donned a white collared shirt with long, flared sleeves, a black tie, a matching blazer dress, and a maxi skirt.
She spiced her look up with a fishnet and multiple finger rings, with her hair styled into a futuristic ‘do. The Instagram clip was set to the tunes of Interplanetary Criminal and Eliza Rose’s “Baddest of Them All,” referencing how Madonna saw herself as she sauntered toward the camera.
The “Back That Up To The Beat” hitmaker had an even sultrier look in her eyes as she hit a whip against the palm of her left hand. The pop icon captioned the clip “And the Winner is…,” further hinting at her new title.
As expected, her comments were filled with mixed reactions from longtime fans and people who wanted to know what she was doing. “All your money and this is what you did to that absolutely gorgeous face of yours??,” a curious person asked.
Another told Madonna that she has lost her “mojo,” and a third claimed, “Doesn’t look like her at all.” A fourth fan added that the 64-year-old “truly lives in her own world,” while a fifth said, “she should never have touched her face.”
Luckily, the “4 Minutes” singer had fans coming to her defense, with one of them commenting, “The negative comments are ridiculous she’s a legend and an older woman…let her have her fun but i promise u she doesn’t care what y’all think.”
As for her Grammys look, Madonna started facing backlash when she took the stage to introduce fellow musical powerhouses Sam Smith and Kim Petras ahead of their “Unholy” performance.

Per The Blast, a viewer shared a meme of Azealia Banks saying, “Let me remain positive; this is me being positive,” along with the caption, “A Madonna introduction with a whip talking about controversy and then introducing Sam and Kim, umm.”
Another Grammys viewer noted, “Lawddd… it’s Black history month, and Madonna on stage at the #GRAMMYs with a whip in her hand,” while a third asked why the “Dick Tracy” actress was holding a “sex whip” onstage.
The Brit Award Winner Hints At Additional Dates For Her Upcoming Tour
Madonna is making her fanbase happy with her plan to tour 35 cities across Europe and North America this summer. However, it appeared that she had even more tricks up her touring sleeve when she recently asked her nearly 19 million followers a question.
The Blast noted that she wanted to know if her fans wanted more tour dates with the three pictures she posted consecutively on Instagram. The images showed her in a black ensemble featuring high-waist shorts paired with a fishnet top and a corset with a plunging neckline.
She touched up the outfit with black knee-length socks, UGGS, a green face cap, and matching lipstick. Each snap came with one of the words, “‘Add’ ‘More’ ‘SHOWS? 🌎🌍🌏'” across it. Madonna’s query seems aligned with the increasing demand from her fan base for her to include more locations in the “Celebration” tour.
At the time of the report, the “Swept Away” actress had allegedly sold a record 600,000 tickets, cementing her spot as the highest-grossing female touring artist ever. The tour is focused on commemorating the superstar’s biggest hits during her forty-year music career.
