Madonna is widely regarded as an icon in pop music. Often called the Queen of Pop, Madonna has had a pretty successful music career. However, this year’s Grammy Awards saw Madonna make an unrecognizable appearance, shocking viewers and fans over the weekend.
The “Vogue” singer appeared on the stage to introduce Kim Petras and Sam Smith for their “Unholy” performance when fans commented on her look. The pop icon appeared in front of the audience sporting braids, a tight black suit, fishnet gloves, and lips that were noticeably bigger than usual.
Fans immediately took to social media to discuss Madonna’s brand-new appearance after she finished her speech. A confused fan tweeted a meme of Adele looking perplexed at a sporting event along with the caption, “Me attempting to ignore the fact that Madonna has a whole new face.”
“Whaaaaaat happened to Madonna’s face?! #GRAMMYs,” another user wrote. “This legit looks like a Madonna impersonator with pics of rhe [sic] real Madonna in the background. She really f–ked up her face,” a third user added.
“Madonna looks good for her age… if her age is 2,700 year old vampire who eats babies and small animals alive,” added someone else. “Has Madonna been nominated for ‘Best New Face’ at this year’s Grammy Awards?” a user jokingly asked.
Other fans of the “Like a Virgin” singer lamented Madonna’s “new face” and claimed she “was much prettier” prior to her most recent appearance change. “I have nothing against plastic surgery, but [Madonna] had a pretty face to begin with IMO why not improve upon that?” one fan wrote after the 2023 Grammy Awards ended. “Now she doesn’t even look the same. I think she was much prettier before.”
However, Madonna’s “whole new face” wasn’t the only aspect of the Grammy Awards that generated buzz. The singer’s speech also confused viewers and fans, especially her remarks about being “shocking” and her suggestions for all the world’s “troublemakers.”
“Here’s what I’ve learned after four decades in music. If they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative or dangerous, you’re definitely onto something.
I’m here to give thanks to all the rebels out there, forging a new path and taking the heat for all of it. You guys need to know all you troublemakers out there you need to know that your fearlessness does not go unnoticed.
You are seen, you are heard, and most of all, you are appreciated.”
For her “freaky” face, Madonna has received numerous notes of concern and criticism over the past 12 months. She has undergone injections, a facelift, a nose job, and skin that has been “pulled back,” according to her plastic surgeon doctors. Keep an eye on Thirsty For News to get the latest updates.
