THIS year marks three decades since Madonna’s outrageous Truth Or Dare documentary, in which she pretended to perform a sex act with a bottle and talked openly about her wild bedroom antics
But fast-forward to 2021 and the now 63-year-old American superstar is every bit as shocking as she was in that X-rated film in 1991, also known as In Bed With Madonna.
Her latest shock doc, Madame X, debuted on MTV last night and will again leave fans gobsmacked — as she admits she likes men to “f*** me then get out” and brags she is “known” for self-pleasuring on stage.
Madonna first pretended to do just that, on a bed during her 1990 Blond Ambition tour, and it almost led to her being arrested during a show in Toronto, Canada.
But while chatting to US comedian Dave Chappelle during her new special, she said: “I always masturbate, I’m known for it. You’re known for smoking on stage, I’m known for masturbating on stage.”
In fact, Madonna — now dating her 27-year-old backing dancer Ahlamalik Williams — reckons she is just getting started when it comes to her ever-scandalous life.
At another point during the TV show, she tells the crowd: “I love my grandma. She lived to 100, God bless her. I’m going to live to 200, bitches — just you watch.”
The two-hour special was shot during Madonna’s Madame X world tour, which ran from September 2019 to March last year in intimate venues where she banned fans from using mobile phones.
It was hampered by hip and knee injuries she was battling but that did not stop her letting rip on stage.
In fast and loose comments to the crowd which are featured in the film, she discusses her genitals and insults audience members who had forked out thousands to get into the theatre shows.
At one point she auctioned off a Polaroid photo she had just taken of herself on stage and pushed it between her legs to “develop”.
She said: “I see some children in the audience and don’t want to offend anyone but, you know what, this is my p***y. Let me just stick it in the oven and see if it develops faster. ‘I love to irritate people – they hate my eyepatch’ “This is a weird way to masturbate, I don’t usually do it like this.”
With fans unable to take photos inside the venue, auctioning snaps was a canny way to raise money for charity. One punter in Lisbon was seen paying her £8,500 for a photo.
But when another customer who had paid for one of the Polaroids asked Madonna to sign it, she spat back: “Will I sign it? No. F*** off. I gave you the picture, that’s enough.”
She wears a dazzling array of Portuguese-inspired outfits in the show, having written much of her 2019 album Madame X while living in capital city Lisbon.
But she is still the same Madonna who loves to wind people up and court controversy when it comes to anything and everything outside her music.
The character she created for her album wears an eyepatch but she gets sick of it at one point during the film.
She rants: “It’s very hard to hear with one eye, I don’t know why. In fact, tonight this patch is really getting on my fing nerves. Don’t cheer when I take it off. It’s so irritating.”
“I love to irritate people. You know people hate my grills so I wear them. They hate my eyepatch, so I wear it. You hate that? I hate you. F**k you.”
Throughout her show, Vogue singer Madonna — the best-selling female musician of all time — boasts about how artists should “disturb the peace”.
And she did just that while promoting her film during a US telly appearance in the early hours of yesterday.
Madonna — who in recent months has shared a series of risque shots of herself on Instagram — lay on top of host Jimmy Fallon’s desk and flashed her bum on screen. Then she said she likes taking drugs at home — but only smokes to look cool in pictures.
She explained: “I smoke for photoshoots, I don’t like it. I like opiates.”
During the appearance she was also quizzed on the films she has turned down during her career, including Showgirls and Catwoman.
‘No appreciation for women, no respect’
She said: “I saw them both and I regret that I turned down Catwoman — that was fierce. But Showgirls, no.
“I turned down a role in The Matrix, too. I wanted to kill myself — that is one of the best films in the world.”
Madonna has also spent time during the past year working on a tell-all film about her life — but revealed it is only going ahead because other filmmakers had threatened to make one without her involvement.
She said: “The reason I am doing it is that people have tried to write movies about me but they are always men.
“Universal sent me a script because they wanted my blessing and it was the most superficial crap I had ever read.
“And then I found out that — I’m not even going to say his name — a total misogynist was directing it.
She added: “I’m thinking, ‘Why would these people make a movie about my life?’
“There is nothing true in the script, the guy who is making it has no understanding of women, no appreciation for women, no respect for women.
“This happened a couple of times and I had to call up the heads of studios and my agents and I said I would stand in front of the building and protest and make everybody’s life a misery if they go through with it.
“And they still did not take me seriously — so I threw down the gauntlet.
“I said there is nobody on this planet that can write, direct and make a movie about me better than me, and that is the truth.”
If her latest film is a taste of what’s to come, then Madonna will continue to divide audiences and shamelessly be herself for many more years.
