Eternal youth for Queen of Pop
She's an icon of sex appeal who has continued to reinvent herself through the decades. With careful body sculpting and airbrushing to stay young, is Madonna's need to stay in the game a little too obsessive?
Take a look at these recent pics for her upcoming album and tell us, is it time for Madonna to pack it up or should she keep on rolling out the sexy?
This recent shoot for her up coming album is heavily retouched to give the star a look of eternal youth.
The premise seems to be 'the sexier, the better' but is it getting harder to believe?
Entitled 'MDNA', the album is set for release this month.
These pics do prompt questions about whether it's time for her to throw in her 'sexy and raunchy' towel.
As do outfits like these. She wore this one to the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2011 which sparked cries of 'mutton dressed as lamb!'
She seemed to heed those cries, opting for classier ensembles like this one at the Golden Globes.
Here she is in a black frock, knees together and ready to chat to Jay Leno in January 2012, her unbridled raunch appropriately tucked away.
Before: In 2010, Madonna posed for Louis Vuitton. Apparently, this is one of the pre-production photos that were leaked to the press.
After: The advert in its finished form with a virtually unrecognisable Madonna.
Dolce and Gabbana also had the pleasure of doing some heavy-handed retouching.
