Madonna goes topless in solidarity with Katy Perry's naked 'Rock the Vote' video

The Queen of Pop wants to rock the vote - in the buff.

Madonna tweeted plans to cast her ballot while naked in solidarity with Katy Perry after the pop artist released a parody public service announcement through Funny or Die and the nonprofit Rock the Vote.

The provocative 58-year-old pop icon showed off a topless selfie early Wednesday and said she would be supporting Hillary Clinton in the November election.

'I'm voting naked with Katy Perry,' wrote Madonna, hinting that more nude pics for a voting series may be on the way.

Madonna was sporting a grill plate on her teeth for the cropped photo.

The Material Girl has a history of pushing sexually suggestive motifs to encourage young people to complete their civic duty.

Madonna famously draped her bikini-clad body with an American flag for the controversial commercial that aired on MTV, kicking off the first “Rock the Vote” drive in 1990. The progressive voter outreach group recruits celebrities to campaign.

Madonna defends BFF Rosie O’Donnell from Donald Trump

So, you probably watched Monday’s presidential debate (it kinda feels like the entire world was watching), and chances are you remember the part where Trump slammed Rosie O’Donnell, whom he’s made derogatory comments about in the past.

To refresh your memory, this is what Trump said exactly: 'I said very tough things to her. And I think everybody would agree that she deserves it, and nobody feels sorry for her.'

This came right after Clinton had raised the point that Trump has a history of slandering women ( relevant, because it’s not exactly an ideal quality for the president of the United States).

And then longtime friend Madonna came to O’Donnell’s defense like a champion! We don’t hear from this superstar very often, but she didn’t waste any time in showing her support.

The two have been friends for years, and in times like these, it’s pretty easy to see why. Trump’s comments were immature, unnecessary, and uncalled for, and we’re glad that he’s being called out for his behavior in such a graceful way. Quite simply, women deserve better.

Madonna Hits Premiere of Beatles Documentary

On Thursday night, it was girls' night out for Madonna as she hit the premiere of director Ron Howard's new documentary on The Beatles.

The film, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years, chronicles the best-selling band during the years of their initial success, focusing on their history-making world tours and their power as a live act.

With two gal pals by her side, the 58-year-old singer rocked the blue carpet – wearing a button-down black and white varsity dress. Her blonde locks down by her side, Madonna accessorized her look with gold hoop earrings, and array of necklaces and a pair of black Alaïa ankle boots.

'Just perfect,' the Detroit native wrote on Instagram, of the film after its premiere. 'An inspiring and sobering reminder of this genius band.'

'Epic,' she wrote in another post.

The movie inspired the 'Material Girl' singer to try her hand at her own cover of a classic Beatles tune, singing their 1964 track 'A Hard Day's Night' in an Instagram video with her friends.

Madonna and Ritchie reach custody deal over Rocco

Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie have settled a court dispute over the custody of their 16-year-old son Rocco.

A spokesman for the New York State court system said the pair had reached an agreement, but did not reveal with which parent the teenager would live.

Ritchie's lawyer Peter Bronstein said Rocco would continue to live with his father in London.

The dispute arose in December when Rocco ignored a court order to fly back to live with his mother in New York. He has since stayed with his father in the UK capital and enrolled in a school there.

Madonna's lawyers have not commented on the settlement.

In December, a judge ruled that Rocco should return to his mother. But she decided not to issue a warrant to enforce the order, urging the pair to reach an agreement.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan said: 'No-one is disrupting his household other than the inability of the parents to reach a resolution. If they cannot resolve this matter then eventually the court will.'

Madonna and Ritchie married in 2000 and divorced eight years later.

Liz Smith: 'This is stardom. Please stand back'

She came, she saw, she wore red, and she stayed for the whole movie! I do mean our girl Madonna. The iconic M put in a totally surprise appearance at the special screening of director Alek Keshishian’s classic documentary, 'Truth or Dare' at The Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday night. (Alek, choreographer Vince Paterson and two of Madonna’s dancers, Salim Gauwloos and Jose Guitierez, stayed for a Q & A after.)

MoMA’s Joseph A. Berger, who had put together the event - along with other Madonna-themed tributes this month - was totally flabbergasted by La Ciccone’s presence. But that stop didn’t stop him from sticking to his original remarks, which were funny, fierce, personal - he was a 12-year-old gay boy struggling, in 1991, when 'Truth or Dare' hit screens; the daring glimpse into Madonna’s life - her matter-of-fact embrace of her gay dancers lives and issues - altered his own life and perceptions.

AIDS was still pretty much a death sentence in 1991. There wasn’t much positivity for gay youth. The freewheeling, vibrantly liberated 1970s and early 80s had devolved into fear, loathing and religiously sanctioned indifference. Madonna brazenly danced, sang, spoke up and finger-snapped away a great deal of that darkness.

As for the great star, she looked gorgeous, and upon leaving, she appeared pleased, having watched herself at the white hot pinnacle of her fame. The movie is as political, powerful, funny, cringe-inducing, sexy, gritty, without vanity, totally self-obsessed, artful, artificial, genuine and as awkwardly practiced as ever. It’s a genius slice of life. And not just her life, or her particular career.

'Truth or Dare' is fashioned as a vehicle to display fame at its most intense, pleasurable, invading and isolating.

A hundred years from now, the 'Vogue' segment alone - Madonna onstage performing, interspersed with scenes of her being mobbed and adored - will be introduced thus: 'This is stardom. Please stand back.'
