Madonna posts pic of herself ‘cleaning’ the shower with her tongue: gross?


We haven’t heard much from Madonna since she performed with Miley Cyrus on MTV’s Unplugged and embarrassed herself with an awful rendition of “Open Your Heart” at the Grammys. I think I’m one of the only people who dug her Ralph Lauren suit on that red carpet, but David Banda definitely wore it better.

It’s been over a month since the internet paid attention to Madonna, so she decided to dial up her Instagram. That’s her main method of stirring controversy these days, you know? She drops the n-word and posts a picture of 13-year-old Rocco holding gin, and everyone is all over Madonna again. Now she’s posing in her shower as she “cleans” it. She cleans the glass door with her tongue. She’s so airbrushed and layered in so many filters that she looks like a 20-something doll. Oh Madge. Stop trying to be like Miley.

Here’s something visually appealing from Madonna’s Instagram. A photo of Rocco and 17-year-old Lourdes. Lola is turning into such a knockout.

    Lola, you’re such a gorgeous young lady – just say no to ducklips!

  2. QQ says:

    Why is this stretched out raisin (and former interesting person) so goddamned pressed for attention?

    • AlexandraJane says:

      Amazing comment, totally summing up all my confused thoughts. Why? She was Queen Madge!

    • blue marie says:

      I dunno, but it’s gotten pretty sad.

    • Chrissy says:

      Agree, I’m embarrassed for her.

    • Nicolette says:

      LOL, ‘a stretched out raisin’! That’s too funny, and so perfect. 🙂

    • MaiGirl says:

      Sh e’s simply determined to go out Norma Desmond-style. This ain’t gonna be pretty,

      • Putchka says:

        That’s the first thing I thought also. She still wants her “close up”. She should gracefully bow out to the young ones… P.S. I’m her age & acknowledged the transition years ago.

      • MaiGirl says:

        Exactly! If you need ALL the filters and ALL the lighting and ALL the PS to make your “close-up” happen, maybe it just shouldn’t happen! That, or make peace with your face and be glamorous anyway. But, again, we know that ain’t gonna happen with Madge. She will make herself irrelevant by being so try-hard in her attempts to stay relevant.

      • Irishserra says:

        Ha! Perfect. I just saw that movie again last week. What an apt description of Madonna.

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously. She seems unwilling to move on and let the younger generation have their moment. Not that she needs to disappear, she needs to acknowledge where she is in life and let her past work speak for itself. Too bad. She and Demi Moore should form a support group.

    • Lisa says:

      This comment is perfect. Why, indeed.

    • Vivian says:

      bwahahaha, stretched out raisin. I’ll be laughing for days….

    • betty says:

      Difference between women 17-34 and men 17-34: Sees a person of 52 their sex acting with the sexual privilege of someone 25:

      Men go “Hurray, you ARE AWESOME. I want to be like him now AND when I’m his age!!!”

      Women go “WHO DO SHE THINK SHE IS? Being defiant to the rule that women over 50 are not supposed to act with sexual privilege. SHE SHOULD KNOW HER PLACE!!!! Women have NO sexual privilege over 42!!! She should cover herself and shrink from attention!!!”

      Women are haters.

  3. Dani2 says:

    I feel parched just by looking at her.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. I remember when she was setting the trends, not desperately grasping for attention. No, that’s not true, she was always desperately grasping for attention, but she was original. It’s a pretty definite sign that you’re over when you start copying Miley Cyrus.

    • Nicolette says:

      +1. Totally agree. It reeks of desperation, and she’s trashing her own iconic legacy in the process. I’m sure Miley feels pretty flattered that someone such as Madonna is copying her pathetic moves. Sad.

  5. freebunny says:

    So much photoshop…

  6. mandygirl says:

    OMG, retire already. Move to Miami and live in a house with a few other ex-dominatrix ladies and get some cats. I do not need to see your old, bony ass in gimp-wear or that nasty tongue anymore.

  7. Belle Epoch says:

    Warning: Objects in mirror may be older than they appear.

  8. Adrien says:

    Lourdes looks like a young Lady Gaga.

  9. MrsBPitt says:

    THIS WOMAN IS PATHETIC!!!!! Photoshopping her instagram?? Really?? Oh look, its Back to the Future Madonna!!!

  10. allons-y alonso says:

    A scourer wouldn’t go astray when trying to clean all that Madonna-grime off a shower screen

  11. Helvetica says:

    Rocco is adorable.

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    I always wear a tiara while cleaning the bathroom. Doesn’t everyone?

    • pru says:

      She has been wearing the tiara/crown thing lately, to remind everyone that she is the Queen, I’m sure!

  13. Arock says:

    Holy hell. Why are you licking the shower? She should google herself and let the tears of what she used to be rinse off any unwanted soap scum. Her antics are embarrassing. I mean, this is someone’s 50 yr old mom- the OG material girl- not some hard up, drunk, real housewive. Cringe.

  14. Samanthalous says:

    This old lady needs to stop

  15. lucy2 says:

    How embarrassing.
    I’m not saying she needs to sit in a rocking chair and watch Matlock all day, but the woman is in her 50s, and is still desperately clinging to or copying the young up and comers in an effort to stay relevant. It’s pathetic.

  16. Lee says:

    Taking the magazine celebrity house tour spread to a new low are we? Via Instagram?

    “And here is my shiny shower – look how I keep it sparkling! Next up: my toilet! Wait till you see how clean I keep it! And oohh, don’t you love my sessy “rubber” gloves?”

    • NerdMomma says:

      I know, I’m so confused! Is this a photoshoot? Who took the picture? It looks like a weird magazine shoot, and she’s way too dressed up for it to be spontaneous.

      I will love it if she posts a picture elbow-deep with a toilet brush.

      • Lee says:

        Haha, while she no doubt makes it clear that she is the ONLY person actually allowed to use this particular toilet. Ever.

  17. Ann says:

    I’ve always found her attempts to be “hot” and “edgy” hilarious, back in the day and now.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed, she has always been try hard. It just get less appealing the older she gets. You’d think she’d have gained some wisdom along the way but apparently not.

  18. Cari says:

    This must be so embarrassing for her kids. She is the same age as my mother, and I could not imagine my mother posting selfies on the internet, much less licking anything while doing so!

  19. MrsBPitt says:

    Think of the germs, think of the disease…that poor shower needs medication STAT!!

    • NerdMomma says:


    • booboolarue says:

      Funny! but seriously, do you know how many microbes are in the bathroom so unless they bleached down the shower door, kids don’t try this at home!!!! GROSS!!!

  20. isabelle says:

    Honestly, how immature can you get.

  21. Bananapants says:

    Like this tired old tuna boat cleans her own shower. Child, please. Sit down.

  22. qwerty says:

    Wow, so much ageism around here. Threre’s a way to express your opinion about her pathetic attention whoring without calling her old/wrinkled/bony, you know.

    • Cheryl says:

      I don’t know. I think we are equally grossed out when the Miley’s out there promote themselves tongue first.

    • Artemis says:


      Yep. it’s easy to call out Madonna on many things so why the need to immediately attack her on something that she can’t change and is completely irrelevant? I think the picture is ridiculous too but I don’t need to use ageist ‘jokes’ to make that point clear.

      I will say this though, girlfriend always seems very hygienic and her perfectly uncoated tongue makes me happy 😀

    • Tan says:

      Agreed. Especially when a lot of the commentators are of various ages. Don’t get me wrong, this type of behavior is equally pathetic if it were some 17-year-old pop queen; I don’t mind criticizing Madonna’s histrionics. Attacking her age, however, is crude and just continues to perpetuate the nasty cycle of ageism towards women in this society. Based on the mentality a lot of the women here perpetuate, would the women here mind leaving public life by age 50? Or retire at age 40 because the workforce even outside of the entertainment industry is getting younger and younger, preferring to staff offices with pretty young things? How about letting their husbands leave them for someone younger because it is “biology”?

      Yeah, didn’t think so.

    • Godwina says:


  23. Allegra says:

    Wow – so much hate and ALWAYS so much emphasis on her age!!!
    So many celebs/general public use instagram and yet they”re not boring, attention seekers clinging to their youth? Sheesh….!
    Jeakous much??!!!!!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      People excuse a lot of stupid behavior BECAUSE of youth. So when they see a woman who is her age, they expect that to come along with some wisdom, etc. If Madonna was doing this kind of antic ALONG with doing things that also showed some wisdom and maturity, I think she would get less heat for it. As it is, she has reduced herself to just being sexual 24/7. Women are more than that, we know it. We expect Madonna to know it too. I think we are just waiting for the “more than”, and getting impatient.

      She used to say that she could be sexy and be the smartest person in the room. It seems she no longer cares about that second thing.

  24. Snappyfish says:

    I read the book her brother Christopher wrote, he is he one who ran her Blonde Ambition tour & he was incharge of the interior design of 3 of her homes. I understand these books are often sour grape platters but if 1/4 of what he wrote is true (& I believe it is) this is a nasty vile soul trying to hold on to whatever relevancy she can.

    The photo of her kids was cute

  25. Zimmer says:

    Lola = beautiful, duck-lips are stupid, except on ducks and I’m not even going to mention the one trying to stay relavent. Aging gracefully is smart, not sure how one can be said to have such a high IQ and behave so childlike. Clearly one needs to pay more attention to classier stars from the past and present who know how it is done. The Hepburns, Tina Turner, Cher, Aretha Franklin and Betty White

  26. dorothy says:

    Desperate for attention.

  27. FingerBinger says:

    Cleaning the shower with her tongue? It’s one pose with her tongue out on the shower door. Exaggerate much? WTF is up with these comments. Compared to some of the other stuff she’s done this is pretty tame. As far as I’m concerned Madonna has earned the right to pose with her tongue on a shower door if she wants to. JFC.

  28. picopink says:

    I think people are referring to her age because she is trying to act/dress like a twenty-something. Nothing wrong with aging gracefully.

    • Artemis says:

      We all know how old she is. There is no need to mention it ad nauseam in various degrading ways (‘stretched out raisin’?). Pretty sure Helen Mirren wouldn’t be called that on this site and if she was, the outrage would quickly follow but it’s Madonna so we’re allowed to degrade her based on her age.

      I agree that she tries to keep up with younger people, tries to fight the aging process and she has lost her magical touch. She used to be ahead of trends or make them and now she’s following them (like her collaboration with Avicii) but again, there are ways of saying that without calling her a ‘tired old tuna boat’. Especially considering Madonna is still physically in better shape than most of us combined.

      For me, it highlights WHY women (she’s not the only one) feel the need to do that (trying to stay ‘young’ and ‘hip’). Mick Jagger and Einstein’s tongues are iconic, Miley’s and Madonna’s are instantly ‘gross’ and ‘desperate’ because [insert narrow standards for women justification here]. There’s always an excuse it seems to rag on women. Always.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        Standing ovation!!! My thoughts exactly! No age-shaming!

        God willing, we will all age. Beats the alternative. Censor Madge for her famewhoring ways, by all means, but not her age.

      • G says:

        The day I see Helen Mirren with her tits and tongue out I’ll call her old ass out too. I haven’t because if there are pictures of her like that she does not post them.

      • Zimmer says:

        I see your point, but also dislike such behavior from men. Additionally, people like Miley and Bieber have no children, so if they care for no one’s image of them, it can be expected. Madonna has children and thus should set a good example for them. Men with children should do the same.

      • KateBush says:

        Mick Jagger’s tongue is not iconic it’s his lips and they’ve been iconic ( the Rolling Stones logo for instance) since the 60s.
        The Stones have also weathered a lot of criticism because of their age and their desire to keep touring .. (The rolling bones anyone ?) But at last they own their age.. No Botox for Keith Richards eh?! 😉
        Madonna on the other hand reeks of desperation and it’s sad that she should feel the need to compete /copy somebody like Miley.

      • Artemis says:

        @G: well you better start then because Mirren got naked on camera many times. It was her artistic integrity to do so at any age just like it’s Madonna’s artistic integrity. Plus you clearly missed Helen’s nude breasts at the ripe age of 64 (2010), when she posed ‘nude’ in a bathtub for a magazine. Start googling. Helen Mirren was very ‘edgy hipster’ when she was young but most people see her as some typical British conservative woman. She has an open mind and loves the freedom of sexuality hence why she loves women like Madonna and Cyrus btw. I don’t think she would give a toss if you would call her ‘old’ ass out. She’s sexy and she knows it.

        @Zimmer: her children don’t seem to be bothered as there is no shred of evidence that they are embarrassed by her. David wanted to be a copy of his mom fashion wise recently, Rocco and Lola have no ‘shame’ in posing with their mom on social media. And honestly, what’s a tongue compared to her Sex era? The worst is already been done and said.

        Her children are also seem to be ‘normal’ and happy so after 17 years of parenting, she must be doing something right.


        Your comment isn’t ageist so I have no issue with it. I agree with her desperate behaviour, which I mention pretty often. It’s always the ‘her old ass’ type of comments that bother me.

      • Tan says:

        I think the problem is our society’s obsession with youth. We treat young women as more interesting, innovative, fearless and their wide-eyed naïveté and idealism is viewed as a plus. When women get older, more cultured, worldly and experienced, they lose that “edge.” I personally couldn’t care less what people think and lots of women who grow older become more confident with themselves and give less shits about society’s parameters; but women like Madonna fear losing that “edge.” She built a career on it. I think she feels the need to combat it by acting this way. She feels she has to hit back harder every time someone screams “put it away, granny!”

      • Godwina says:

        This. Many comments here are contributing to the problem. Makes me wince.

      • Gorgonia says:

        @Artemis: I agree with a lot of your points. However, I still find Madonna desperate, and this is indipendent from her age. IMO, Miley is as much desperate as her, and a lot of men are too (my favourite example? Silvio Berlusconi, ex italian premier, always so desperate to show himself with young and beatiful women, hoping people is going to forget is an old sugar daddy, now). The problem is when you want all eyes on you and make all the world screaming: “SEXY, SEXY, SEXY”, this is pure desperation.

  29. TherapyCranes says:

    I think she looks good. Most celebs are photoshopped so meh. If you post pics of yourself on your own site then you’re immediately attention whoring because how dare you. Non issue. The women on this site just love tearing down other women.

    • Alexa says:

      I agree. And I’m finding these pics of her as beautiful as ever. Someone please tell me – what’s the age cutoff for posting sexy pics of yourself?

  30. Pumpkin Pie says:

    It’s super-gross. Why? WHY?

  31. Maggie Grace says:

    And the ever-present liver-spot-hiding gloves.

    • MourningTheDeathOfMusic says:

      Exactly what I was thinking! The hands always betray all that cosmetic surgery.

  32. Anastasia says:

    Rocco looks just like his father.

    That’s all I’ve got.

  33. SnarkGirl says:

    Of course don’t we ALL clean our showers wearing lace gloves and jeweled headbands?

    Look up “desperation” in the dictionary and you’ll see that pic.

  34. Jayna says:

    Madonna was glorious in her forties, all the way through. From 50 on not so much. Although, I did like the Sticky & Sweet tour, but her plastic surgery made me sad. It’s only gotten worse with her desperation antics these past few years. I never thought I would be over Madonna, totally lost interest. I tried to hang in there but I can’t. If she puts out a good album, i will buy it, but other than that, i doubt i will ever see her in concert again. But I have my memories and albums and memorabilia of her iconic times. My relationship with Madonna as my favorite pop star/performer of all time will stay with me, just the past Madonna. Ah, I am feeling a little teary over my fandom for the Queen coming to a present day end.

    Memories, light the corners of my mind
    Misty watercolor memories of the way we were.
    Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
    smiles we give to one another
    for the way we were.
    Can it be that it was all so simple then
    or has time rewritten every line?
    If we had the chance to do it all again
    tell me would we? Could we?
    Memories, may be beautiful and yet
    what’s too painful to remember
    we simply choose to forget
    So it’s the laughter we will remember
    whenever we remember
    the way we were

  35. Margo says:

    I always felt Madonna was overrated musically, but in her mind feels she’s a genius. She’s primarily a performer and so her focus has always been her persona; that made her very wealthy but not enduringly relevant . Instead of innovating herself musically, she’s acting like the always trashy and also overrated Miley.

  36. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Guy Ritchie really dodged a bullet on this one.

  37. Lisa says:

    I don’t care how old she is. Even if she were 26 and wearing that cute “Healthy” cropped tee, I’d still ask… why?

  38. magz says:

    Can’t stand how she overexposes ALL of her pictures to hide the wrinkles and age lines. Own up to your age and rock it! The confidence would make her look much younger that these pictures of lies.

  39. Irishserra says:

    She definitely can’t use #nofilter hash on this one. Is this a foreshadowing of things to come from Gaga?

  40. Skye says:

    Amazing how much both those kids look like their fathers. Even though it’s biologically impossible, I find it kinda funny to think Madge hordes all of her chromosomes and makes her mates pony up the whole batch.
