The Queen of Pop is here to kick off Pride! Madonna hit the stage for an illustrious performance on Thursday, June 24, at the Boom Boom Room in New York City to celebrate the kick off of Pride weekend — and her outfit sure did turn heads.
The iconic superstar sported a risque see-through mesh top that was covered by a bunch of leather vintage Jean Paul Gaultier harnesses paired with tiny leather shorts as she performed some of her hits for a packed house. The outspoken musician even made a political statement with the corset, as the back read in glittery letters, “Not My President” (perhaps referring to former president Donald Trump).
To add to her unique look, the "Holiday" singer topped it all off with a baby-blue wig and long pink fingerless gloves as she wowed the crowd with her hits like her 2005 smash “Hung Up” and even her newer work like “I Don’t Search I Find.”
One famous face in attendance was Madonna super fan Andy Cohen, who posted stories from the fun-filled event to his Instagram.
The 62-year-old performer is making sure she gives back to the community who helped build her career, as she wrote via Instagram Story — after announcing that she would be performing at the iconic venue — "Throwing this party because Pride needs to be celebrated with a community of people who understand and know the meaning of oppression and fighting for freedom!”
She continued, “I can never forget that NYC and the LGBTQ+ Community gave me life from day ONE!!!!!!”
In addition to her Pride performance, she "would also be auctioning off Polaroid photos of herself to benefit three NYC-based organizations: Ali Forney Center, Haus of US and The Door."
The Polaroids were captured by famed photographer Ricardo Gomez. The pop icon teased the steamy snaps via her Instagram along with a celebratory Pride selfie that she captioned, “Pray with me in The Temple of Pride…”
The photographer also was able to collaborate with the hit maker on a video to honor Pride month that ran in Times Square the same night as her racy stage performance. The video was entitled “No Fear, Courage, Resist.”
