By Linda Massarella. A series of nude photos taken of Madonna when she was an year-old ballet dancer show her well-formed muscles and perfect turnout — and they can soon be yours for the right price. Gotta Have it Rock and Roll is selling the images with original negatives at auction Wednesday. In one snap, the young singer, who has short dark hair, stands buck-naked at a ballet barre practicing a first position demi-plie. In another, she stands in fourth position with her hands held above her, the better to show off her rock-solid abs.

View on Instagram. If there's anything certain in the ever-shifting landscape of pop culture, it's this: You just can't keep Madonna down. Or at least that was the first adage that came to mind upon a quick scroll through Instagram yesterday, which found the icon sharing a throwback capture of herself in the buff, the snap accompanied by a timeless message of empowerment. The stylized, black-and-white photograph featured a young, nude, Madge posing demurely, her shoulder-skimming waves worn finger-raked, rumpled, and endearingly frizzed, the words "Rebel Heart" scrawled across the image. Living in NYC. Painting, drawing and photography classes.
Katy Perry isn't the only one taking off her clothes to encourage people to get out and vote. Madonna took to social media early Wednesday morning to share a naked selfie, not in a gratuitous fashion but in a way that's promoting Perry's same message: go out and vote this presidential election. Although Perry has made it clear she's voting for Hillary Clinton —she's been spotted on campaign stops—her Funny or Die video didn't advocate for one politician or the other. Madonna, however, is hoping people will vote for the democratic nominee. Vote for Hillary.
Barely an hour after her assistant opens the door of her Upper West Side Manhattan apartment, Madonna has suggested we retire to her boudoir. That is where she wants to play some cuts from her new, as yet incomplete LP release. Entitled Erotica, it is her first proper album since Like A Prayer in and her first album recorded entirely in New York since Like a Virgin in Either way, it seems churlish to protest. Her small but firm frame lounges on top of the soft white duvet.
