Madonna purposefully flashes breast during Istanbul performance

Madonna exposes her nipple during MDNA Istanbul tour stop

Istanbul was Constantinipple!?!

During Madonna’s MDNA tour performance in Istanbul Thursday night the 53-year-old singer decided she would just go ahead and whip a breast out and the clip has of course found its way online.

Be assured, this was not the Material Girl going for 2nd best in the form of an accidental “nip-slip,” this was a purposeful maneuver as the clip in question obviously points out. Yep, Madonna put her breast to the test to make the crowd know how it feels when they see that skin’s for realz. You can click on the above pic for a full page image of Madge expressing herself.

During a performance of “Human Nature” she removed a white dress shirt, then a lacy piece of lingerie (no cones or anything like that for the now “demure” Madonna). She then yanked down a bra strap in a teasing fashion but moved right on to full exposure much to the audience’s pleasure.

Back before her performance at the Super Bowl she rammed on performers going for this lowest-common-denominator approach:

“You don’t have to show your nipples to be interesting, and it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re cutting-edge if you do.”

You can check out the clip here (crowd shot with rough audio – the flash in question happens at around the 2:50 mark).

Madonna recently made headlines when she did a live combo of her own “Express Yourself” teamed with Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” which she argues is pretty much a rip-off, and ended the song by chanting, “She’s not me.”

So what do you think of Madonna’s latest move? Is it just Madge being Madge or is she getting just a tad bit desperate to grab headlines?
