Madonna is causing a stir once again on social media after she uploaded a series of sensual photos to her Instagram Stories to promote the 30-year anniversary of her 1992 erotic coffee table book Sex.
The Queen of Pop, 64, gazed sultrily into the camera as she revived a controversial outfit from earlier in the week, posing in a busty corset, gold-colored opera gloves, fishnet tights, chic sunglasses and a fur coat.
“I’d like to put you in a trance,” she wrote in the caption of a single image posted to her Instagram.
Critics were once again quick to take the music legend to task, accusing her of tarnishing her legacy in a vain attempt to appear cutting edge.
“Editing your photos into a false creation only creates more of a distorted view of your self worth,” one fan lamented. “This is why you struggle to age with grace. For an artist who changed the narrative about women owning who they are, you have done the complete opposite of empowering yourself. You are now no better than all the men who only value appearance. With all you have accomplished your career has been reduced to only how you look. Accept the process.”
“I don’t know what you are trying to look like. To me you look like a scientific experiment gone wrong,” another critic sniped.
“You’ll never be young again,” a third curtly wrote, with a fourth dismissing her continual updates as a desperate cry for attention.
“Guess you’ve run out of new tricks, so back to the old ones. What happened to never looking back and repeating? Now you’re just rehashing. Once again, attention via nudity.”
Madonna was also lambasted for proudly wearing fur in her post.
“Fake face but real fur, that’s it for me,” one fan said promising they were done following the Grammy winner.
“I know you like shocking the world but using fur? You are really making a terrible and bad statement!” a second person wrote.

Earlier this week, the Hung Up hitmaker shared a brief video to her Instagram in which she flashed her breasts while cavorting around in clip set to Miles Davis’ Ascenseur Pour L’échafaud.
One longtime supporter said that Madonna’s attempts to reinvent herself as a social media influencer aren’t having the titillating effect she hopes with younger listeners.
“My children who are in their late teens and 20’s think she’s a joke. They have no idea who she used to be. I’m struggling to remember too!”
The photos are the latest in a seemingly endless chain of odd posts the songstress has shared across social media.
Last week, the Grammy winner was seen clutching a $3,000 Balenciaga purse while posing topless in thigh-high stockings and a pair of lacy undies.
“Someone needs to take grandma’s phone away,” one follower wrote, with another adding, “You just need too sit the f— down … You may have paved the way for some of today’s young Female Artists, but you have had your day!!! Take a back seat & have some dignity!”
Prior to that, fans roasted the Hung Up songstress when she twerked in lingerie to Luclover’s LSD in a video posted to TikTok.
“Trying to stay relevant 😢so sad, you used to be iconic, I admired you for many years,” read one depressing account. “Now just so sad what you have become.”
Madonna also raised eyebrows with an Instagram video where she appeared to lick water out of a dog bowl in addition to suggestively posing on a motorbike and squatting over a bottle of hot sauce.
While her recent online activity has upset many of her longtime fans, a handful of supporters praised the star for continuing to express herself and push the envelope, just like she has always done in her lengthy career.
“Living your best life, the way you wanna live it, love it,” one fan cheered, while another urged the icon to “Keep doing what you love.”
