Madonna on ’Harper’s BAZAAR.’

WOW. This has got to be the first time in the history of Harper’s that a grill has been worn on the cover, amirite? Man, Madonna STAYS breaking ground. *bows down* But wait. Does this mean that mouth jewels have officially received a nod of approval from the prestigious fashion mag? Well, I guess it is the “Daring Issue.” And this is MADONNA. The only way this metal-mouth #FASHUN statement could be made any more daring by the 55-year-old Queen of Pop is if it included a death-defying motorcycle jump across the Grand Canyon.

Along with her gold and diamond-plated grill, Madge rocks a leather and lace bustier and a ton of gold accessories on the cover of next month’s Harper’s. Like, ALL of the gold accessories. There are gold chest plates on said bustier, a Y-shaped gold chain necklace, multiple gold rings, a gold cuff, a gold bracelet, gold nails, a gold Roman wreath headband, a gold shoulder piece. So. Much. Gold.
Inside the mag, her Madgesty, who was provocatively shot by Terry Richardson, continues to embrace the S&M steez that all the cool kids are into these days—*ahem* Britney, Rihanna—with belts and harnesses, lots more leather, fishnet tights, a multi-strapped corset and some VERY serious thigh-high boots. Oh, and a chain mail mask. Who knew small pieces of metal made your eyes pop? The interview inside, which is conducted by Madonna, with Madonna (Yes, you read that right. She interviews herself.), explores her teenage years, the adoption of her son, David, and her penchant for controversy as a performer. “If I can’t be daring in my work or the way I live my life,” Madonna tells Madonna, “then I don’t really see the point of being on this planet.”
