Madonna needs to listen to her inner Madge.
The Material Girl delivered an intentionally titillating performance in Turkey, flashing her breast during a concert.
It smacked of a pathetic attention grab by an artist with little current relevance — and who just four months ago blasted such antics.
Before her Super Bowl XLVI gig in February, Madonna guaranteed there would be no “wardrobe malfunction” during her performance, akin to Janet Jackson’s slip during halftime of the 2004 Super Bowl.
Madge ripped those kind of on-stage antics as cheap attention grabs.
“You don’t have to show your nipples to be interesting, and it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re cutting-edge if you do,” Madonna lectured back then.
Now fast-forward to Istanbul on Thursday night, as Madonna performed her 1995 hit “Human Nature” in the cradle of western civilization.
She did a striptease during the number, getting down to a black lace bra.
The dance culminated with Madonna pulling down one cup of her bra, and exposing her right breast for a little more than a second.
Madonna, 53, flashed a dramatic been-there, done-that snarl on her face immediately following the flash.
