In new documentary, Madonna brags about masturbating on stage
Madonna’s new documentary is just as shocking as that 1991 X-rated film, otherwise known as In Bed With Madonna. Her latest shocking release, Madame X, premiered on MTV last night and will once again leave fans awestruck – she admits she likes men to “fuck her then get off” and also brags about being “known” in pleasure yourself on stage.
Madonna first pretended to do just that, on a bed during her Blond Ambition tour in 1990, and nearly got her arrested during a concert in Toronto, Canada. But while chatting with American comedian Dave Chappelle during her new special, she said: “I always masturbate, I’m known for it. You’ve been known to smoke onstage, I’ve been known to masturbate onstage.”
In fact, Madonna – now dating her 27-year-old backup dancer Ahlamalik Williams – thinks she’s just getting started when it comes to her always scandalous life. Elsewhere in the TV show, she tells the crowd, “I love my grandma. She lived to be 100, God bless her. I’ll live to 200 bitches – just watch.”
The two-hour special was filmed 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 cell phones. In quick, loose comments to the crowd that are featured in the film, she discusses her genitals.
At one point, she auctioned off a Polaroid photo she had just taken of herself onstage and placed it between her legs to “develop.” She said: “I see some kids in the audience and I don’t want to offend anyone but, you know what, this is my bitch. Let me put it in the oven and see if it develops faster. ‘I love pissing people off – they hate my eyepatch’ “This is a weird way to masturbate, I don’t normally do it that way.”
With fans unable to take photos inside the venue, the photo auction was a sly way to raise money for the charity. A Lisbon fan paid £8,500 for a photo.
But when another customer who paid for one of the Polaroids asked Madonna to sign it, she replied: “Shall I sign it? Do not. Screw this. I gave you the photo, that’s enough. ”
