Madonna’s latest set of revealing Instagram photos stirred up a big reaction on social media this weekend. Fans immediately voiced their thoughts on the new cleavage-baring shots shared by the pop diva on social media. Not everyone was happy to see Madonna’s cleavage exposed, but Madonna captioned one of the photos with “not gonna stop.”
Life & Style Weekly reported on the social media response Madonna’s Instagram photos received on Saturday. Some fans wish she would “stop already” with the provoking posts to her Instagram account. The new Instagram shots are from the set of her next music video, according to Twitter.

The revealing photos did cause fans to take notice of Madonna once again. Within hours of Madonna posting the photos, more than 40,000 fans had liked the photos on Instagram. That number grew to more than 50,000 as the weekend continued.
Many fans commented on the Madonna photo on Instagram or shared their thoughts on Twitter. El Universal shared a screen shot of some of the comments posted to Instagram in response to Madonna’s statement, “I deserve the best.” One fan commented with “deserve to die.” Other fans were not as harsh with their comments.
Please can someone just teach Madonna how to use Instagram correctly ffs

However, not everyone had a negative reaction to Madonna’s new photos. On Facebook, fans loved the new photos.
In response to the photo that she captioned with “I deserve the best” on Instagram, one fan said, “Of course you do. The best for the Queen.”
Another fan said, “You look fantastic! An admirer from Spain, by the way. You deserve it all.”
This is not the first time Madonna’s posts on social media have caused controversy in recent weeks. The Inquisitr reported on the outrage Madonna caused when she used famous historical figures to promote her new album, Rebel Heart. Madonna posted photos of Martin Luther King Jr., Princess Diana, John Lennon, and others on her Instagram with black strings covering their image.
Madonna was quick to defend her Instagram photos with a post on her Facebook account.
“These people are all Rebel Hearts in one way or another from Martin Luther King to Jesus to Nelson Mandela to John Lennon. YES! Lets celebrate them! The world needs more people like them. I hope to one day accomplish. 1 100th of what these Rebel Hearts have accomplished.”
However, Madonna caused controversy once again when she was accused of using the terrorist attacks in France to promote Rebel Heart.

Madonna is definitely in promotional mode. Last month, several tracks from her upcoming album leaked online. She had not even announced that she was getting ready to release a new studio album. Madonna and her team went into damage control mode. Is she using her over-the-top shares on Instagram to help promote the March 9 release of Rebel Heart?
Madonna did speak about the Rebel Heart leak and her original plans for the release with Billboard.
“Originally I wanted to put everything out together. I have an overabundance of songs, and actually, the reason I wanted to call the record ‘Rebel Heart’ was because I felt like it explored two very distinct sides of my personality. The rebellious, renegade side of me, and the romantic side of me. In my mind, it was almost like I wanted to do a two-record set. So you get this chunk of songs, and that chunk of songs. That was my original goal. But then all the demos leaked and I can’t really go down that road anymore, so I put out (the six songs) first and then, I think a few more songs are going to come out during the time of the Grammys. Then the rest of the album will just come out together (in March), and they’ll just get my rebellious and romantic side all mixed in together.”
Fans will get to see Madonna on stage when she performs at the Grammy Awards on February 8. It is also rumored in recent reports that she will return to the Brit Awards. Her last appearance on that awards show was 20 years ago.
What do you think? Should Madonna stop posting the over-the-top Instagram posts?
