Madonna debuts dramatically different look in surprising new photos
The 64-year-old singer has been keeping her followers entertained with several video snippets and photos from tour rehearsals.
This week, Madonna again shared some new snaps on her Instagram and surprised fans with her shocking new look.
"The Calm Before the Storm," she captioned the post, referring to the upcoming tour.
In the other photos, Madonna is seen rolling across the floor during rehearsal and posing in different outfits.
Just a few months ago, the artist appeared at the 2023 Grammy Awards and faced a flood of hate online as social media users mocked her appearance, with some claiming she was unrecognizable.
But in the new photos, though Madonna certainly continues to retouch photos and use filters, the swelling of her face that drew such cruel criticism seems to have disappeared entirely.
Madonna defends her appearance ahead of The Celebration Tour
Madonna has come under repeated scrutiny for her face recently, particularly due to the apparent number of plastic surgeries she's had done.
Still, the Vogue singer has been a fierce defender of her appearance, clapping back at the hate while calling out the "ageism and misogyny" she's faced over her lengthy career.
The iconic artist will begin her anticipated Celebration Tour, which is set to span four decades of her music, on July 15.
