Madonna has never been one to shy away from controversy -- especially when that controversy involves nudity of some kind. From the release of her 1992 book, 'Sex' (which was just as scandalous as it sounds) to everything in between, Madonna has successfully built a career on shock value. Her latest photographs with Interview magazine are no exception. Photographer Mert Alas posted photos of Madonna's shoot on his Instagram account, and naturally, the photo garnering the most attention is one of Madonna with her nipples fully exposed. It's nothing we haven't seen from the singer before, but it's certainly a bit more risque than anything we've seen from her recently. You can see the NSFW topless photo of Madonna here. Madonna is currently planning to release an album at some point in 2015, and so far it looks like her promo for the album is shaping up to be pretty interesting! You can check out the cover images from her Interview shoot above and below, and head over to their site to read the full interview.
