MADONNA is continuing to court
controversy on her MDNA world tour by flashing her backside to fans at a
concert in Italy on Tuesday,
days after exposing her breast in Turkey.
The Material Girl, 53, stunned gig-goers in Istanbul last week during a performance of
her hit Human Nature, when she purposely peeled off part of her bra to bare her
right nipple to the audience and then turned her back on the crowd to reveal a
defiant temporary tattoo that read 'NO FEAR'.
And the singing superstar pulled a similar stunt in Rome on Tuesday, titillating devotees by
pulling down her pants to expose her thong-clad bottom during another
striptease for the same track.
Madonna's headline-grabbing antics come just
months after she told a TV reporter pop stars "don't have to show nipples
to be interesting", adding, "It doesn't necessarily mean you're
cutting edge if you do."
