Madonna And 11 More Women Who Aren’t Afraid Of Hairy Armpits

Madonna has been on a roll this week in the Instagram department. A few days ago, she posted a picture of herself dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones—complete with miniature dragons on her shoulders—which was, obviously, awesome. And then last night, she posted another eyebrow-raising selfie, this time featuring her beyond fuzzy armpit with the caption “Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!!” (quite the opposite of Taylor Swift’s recent “short hair, don’t care” Instagram phenomenon).

It’s hard to tell if Madonna’s hairy pit is a result of feminism, laziness, or sheer publicity, although her hashtags—#artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove—suggest The Queen of Pop is just being her typically anarchistic and too-cool-for-school self. The internet is already semi-exploding over the furry pic, but there actually is quite a long history of female celebs who have dared to expose their unshaved pits.
