Madonna has been
acting like Madonna performing a striptease during each of the shows on her MDNA Tour, so it's unsurprising that she got down to the bare essentials at a concert in Hyde Park.
The cold weather, however, might have given less determined artists some pause. She went on to strip down to her usual sheer bra as part of her "Like a Virgin" routine, going so far as to pull down her pants to flash a black thong at her adoring fans.
A-listers including Kylie Minogue and Stella McCartney were seen taking in the show. The tour, which is in support of the album by the same drug-pun name, may end up being the highest-grossing concert run of all time.
Just days earlier, Bruce Springsteen's Hyde Park concert was cut off after he -- and Paul McCartney, who The Boss had invited on stage -- exceeded the curfew of the strict venue. Despite telling the crowd that she "like[s] to live dangerously," Madonna was careful to err on the side of caution and thus did not have the plug pulled on her traveling circus.
At his next concert, Springsteen mocked Hyde Park officials by launching into the final minute of "Twist and Shout," by The Beatles, explaining that he was picking up where he was "rudely interrupted."
In other Madge news, the singer released the video for "Turn Up the Radio" amid numerous reports that France's far right party, the National Front, will file a formal complaint against the singer for her decision to perform in front of a photo of Marie Le Pen wearing a swastika on her forehead. The singer also flashed her nipple in Istanbul, because she's so relevant.
