Queen of pop released this Thursday, December 20, a picture taken when she was 19 years old.
Madonna has published an old photograph of herself in which she appears naked at age 19, on social networks. On Twitter and Instagram, the pop queen took the opportunity to remember the beginning of her career, and criticize social conservatism.
"I am 19 years old. Living in New York. Student at Martha Graham School of Dance. I was a model for the city's art schools to pay the rent. Painting, drawing and photography classes. Many of these photos were later sold to Playboy and Penthouse when I became famous," she wrote.
"The photographers exploited me, the patriarchal society tried to embarrass me because I was naked. I told the press that 'I was not embarrassed' and that became the newspaper headline. This became a collaboration between Warhol and Haring! I am the proud owner of these four paintings, which were offered to me as a wedding gift. You can not stop art by trying to embarrass it. Creation always wins," she added.
