The sun had yet to set in Los Angeles tonight (Feb. 8), but there was a (nearly) full moon spotted on red carpet of the 2015 Grammy Awards nonetheless -- courtesy of none other than Madonna!

No stranger to controversy and never even the least bit publicity shy, the legendary diva showed up to the recording industry's biggest night in an ensemble already sure to grab headlines. The mostly black outfit, designed by Givenchy, looked to be part bullfighter, part saloon girl and part warrior princess. Whatever it was, it was all fabulously soooo Madonna.

But she had a special surprise for the assembled photographers and press when she turned around: Her butt! Madonna cheekily flashed the press corps her cheeks before heading into the Staples Center. The singer's backside was almost fully exposed, with only the slightest strips of underwear and the teeny-tiny amount of fabric in her fishnet stockings saving her, um, modesty.

She walked the red carpet with Diplo and Nas, both collaborators on her upcoming album 'Rebel Heart.' Mooning the cameras is certainly one way to get media attention for an upcoming album. Well played, Madonna, well played. Check out the photos of Madonna mooning below!
