I’m sorry – when I say what I’m about to say I want you to know that I don’t mean to offend anyone. If you have long hair in your armpit, then fine…that’s your biz. I think it is DISGUSTING. I don’t know what it is, but seeing armpit hair in a woman’s armpit makes me want to throw up. In fact this pic kind of got my gag reflex.
If Madonna can’t make armpit hair look good, then no one can. But that’s just my opinion.
The 55-year-old shared the selfie above on Thursday, writing, “Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove.”
Even as a teen, Madonna let her underarm hair grow. “Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in December 2011. “I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”
“The boys in my school would make fun of me,” Madonna said of being “tortured” in school. “‘Hairy monster.’ You know, things like that.” It wasn’t until her late teenage years, when she began hanging out at gay clubs, that the pop star found her identity. “Straight men did not find me attractive. I think they were scared of me because I was different. I’ve always asked, ‘Why? Why do I have to do that? Why do I have to look this way? Why do I have to dress this way? Why do I have to behave this way?’”
The same day Madonna shared her armpit selfie, she also introduced a commercial for MDNA Skin, an anti-aging line she launched in Japan in collaboration with MTG, the nation’s leading beauty company.
