She has made a career out of shocking people.
And the song remained the same as Madonna forgot to wear her trousers to the 2013 Met Gala in New York on Monday.
The 54-year-old seemed to be revelling in the attention as she posed on the red carpet, flaunting herself to the maximum by posing from all angles.
Rearly old trick: The ageing posptrel pulled one of her favourlte stunts by hanging a crucifix on her rear
And no wonder, for the ageing pop star really pushed the boat out for the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute.
She wisely covered up her upper arms with a grey studded tartan jacket, and highlighted her lower half in fishnet body stocking, stay-up stockings and pink suede stilettos.
And the canny old campaigner also wheeled out her favourite shock tactic by hanging a crucifix over her rear.
Just to top off her Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci look she wore a brown wig, which seemed to have come straight from Uma Thurman’s Pulp Fiction wardrobe.

She also shared some of her trademark rapier wit with reporters, and when asked what her most rebellious moment was, she said: ‘It changes by the day, by the hour!’
And when another media acolyte asked her what is punk, she added: ‘It’s not caring what people think!’
Her look, which would have fitted in perfectly during her 1992 Erotica era, was in stark contrast to her more girlie appearance at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in March.
She dressed up like a girl scout for the exciting event in New York, though she subverted the look slightly in leather fingerless gloves, fishnet tights and combat boots.
And while for seasoned fans of the star her Met Gala look was very much a case of same-old, same-old, it still helped her stand head and shoulders among young pretenders to her queen of pop throne such as Katy Perry, 28, and 44-year-old Kylie Minogue.
