Madonna defends XXX NFTs after social media users call 3D scan of her vagina ‘creepy’
Liv-ing in a NFT world (NFT)

Madonna raising eyebrows, conversation and money for charity in new NFT drop.

 

The Queen of Pop partnered with digital artist Beeple to produce a trio of NFT (non-fungible token) videos titled Mother of Technology, Mother of Creation, and Mother of Evolution, which she dropped this week.

 

The artworks feature up-close scans of her vagina, as well as naked depictions of herself giving birth to trees, butterflies, and robotic centipedes.

The proceeds form the NFTs are to be distributed across three charities: National Bail Out, V-Day and Voices of Children.

 

Madge debuted the risqué NFT art collection on Wednesday, after trailing it a day earlier on Instagram, and fans had some thoughts on the collection.

“I’m doing what women have been doing since the beginning of time, which is giving birth”, Madge said in an interview with the artist Mike Winkelmann, who goes by the creator name Beeple.

“But on a more existential level, I’m giving birth to art and creativity and we would be lost without both,” she added.

“I think it’s really important that a lot of thought and conversation went into creating these videos.”

 

As with quite literally anything Madonna does, the internet had thoughts. 

Never one to shy away from controversy or sexualized content, Madonna is an unquestionable trailblazer in the field of fusing provocative entertainment, current social issues and art. 

 

However, the close-up shots of the singer’s private parts, which were created using scans of the her genitals, have sparked a fair bit of controversy and outrage on social media.  

Many social media users were quick to slam the collection as being – wait for it – ‘nOt aGe ApPropRIatE’, ‘creepy’, and ‘crazy’, while the New York Post called the collection a ‘filthy attention grab’.

 

On the flip side, many fans called the release ‘inspired’ and pointed out that art is, by its very nature, supposed to be provocative.

In the interview Madge shared to her Instagram page (below), she revealed the conversations between her and Beeple where the pair brainstormed their visions.

“I say we need a forest with creepy crawly bugs coming out of me,” she said.

“Not often does a robot centipede crawl out of my vagina,” the singer then joked.

 

At a time when women’s bodily autonomy is being debated in the US, we say more power to her!

 

Madonna embracing her own body and her own sexuality is no new thing, after all.
