The VMAs (Video Music Awards) is an annual event hosted on the MTV cable channel.
This year’s VMA was held on Monday (Sept 13) and caused a stir when age-defying popstar Madonna opened the show.
The 63-year-old singer stepped out on stage in a trench coat, which she soon disrobed to reveal her black-colour thong. This risqué snap is now viral on social media.
Madonna’s fashion sense is enduringly controversial. Forty years ago she was a trendsetter. Today?
Madonna celebrated her 63rd birthday last month with a cross-shaped cake reminiscent of the bejewelled regalia of Christian holy roman emperors — below.
Madonna is also seen wearing a cross necklace in the birthday snapshot shared with her fans on Instagram.
The cross has always been Madonna’s fashion accessory and featured in her most iconic pictures.

The photos below are of an older Madonna but one still wearing the cross.
Interestingly, her cross is creatively worn on the tiara (3rd pix below), worn teamed with an ugly black dress (4th pix below) that looks like garbage bags scrunched together, and worn on a long chain dangling down to her waist (white dress pix).
Cross vs crucifix
For those who are wondering what the difference is between a cross and a crucifix, well, the latter incorporates an image of Jesus hanging on the cross.

The last picture of Madonna’s cross dressing gallery is a still below from her Like a Prayer music video.
It is Madonna at her best — both in attractive looks and in topping the charts.
Nowadays Madonna is too full of ‘plastic’ body parts.
