Madonna

There are some untouched pictures from the sessions where she's wearing an orange version of the same outfit too. I think the shot from the album cover came from that set

Possibly unpopular opinion but I prefer this shot than the floating inside a disco ball version of the cover?

Does anyone else remember an alternate cover surfacing around the time Jump was announced as a single that used this photo, or a similar one from the same set?

I've always wondered if it was a fanmade cover that found its way into some articles or if it was legitimate/an early draft, but I've never been able to find the exact image

Vaguely, but yeah I remember it was a closer crop? I want to say it was fanmade, because it didn’t even appear on promo copies of the single, which typically use alternate artwork.
 
I love the Confessions album cover thou the single covers were a let down for me...Get Together and Jump could have been so much better with all this imagery.

I think this was used as a backcover for the Jump single ?

For Sorry they used a pictured from a live performance from the Confessions promo tour and retouched it. It looks cool thought, even if too similar to Kylie Fever DVD cover.
 
Unfunny and stale?
This.

A friend just opened that can for worms about her just embarrassing herself now. It will be interesting to see how "desperately" some of her critics will try to stay in the loop with things and botox and facetune their faces to the moon and back to make them look fresh on whatever network they'll try to snatch some twinks from ten or 20 years from now. I never get why people hate people for not giving up when they reach a certain age.

Plus she is an artist, she always was interested in what's fresh and exciting and how to make current things her own and use them for her art. It is her profession. She won't stop.

So tired of all of this. I love Celine, Kylie, Cher and some others to death and this really is everything but a diss but I am happy that some legends push themselves even after more than ten albums and aren't afraid to disturb the peace of some senior's Spotify playlists.

Also, this is a woman who have worked with her image for 40 years and knows very well how things are manipulated all the time, either by lighting, angles, make-up to the lenses used on cameras and post edition work. Facetune and photoshop is nothing new for her.

I mean, we know that the covers of True Blue and Ray of Light were edited and people don't claim she was desperate and trying to fool people.

But I also think some of the work on her insta is terrible, but I'm sure she knows that too.

Sometimes she is really just trolling. Her children will tell her and she will know that if they hate, everybody will hate it even more, so mission accomplished.

But great that she found a way to still be the conversation after all this time. People acting like it is a new thing that Madonna is weird/loves attention really lived deep in a forest for several decades. I take Madonna's messy IG any day if for every 15 Frozen remixes I get one Hung Up remix that slaps.
 
As I posted in the replies of an LGBTQ-centric Instagram account mocking her photo with Lil Nas X, it's disappointing and bewildering to see fellow gays shame someone because their look and/or behaviour is deemed unconventional. Anyone who pushes back against societal expectations or refuses to conform should be celebrated in my view.

She's stunning with or without the filters. It's so funny to see people react like they do. We saw something similar with Aubrey O'Day's Instagram being dragged through the mud a few weeks ago. These women know what they're doing and how they look doing it, they're not trying to fool anyone, and people don't seem to get that they're perfectly fine with who they are. Instagram is just another curated visual outlet for Madonna that provokes people who are uncomfortable with themselves.
