Madonna He was once again a protagonist on Instagram with the publication of ten photos of her in provocative poses on a bed, wearing black lingerie, fishnet stockings and Louboutin stilettos, with its characteristic red sole.
In less than 2 hours they had already received countless likes and comments from their fans who follow her on the social network. The diva published the snapshots accompanied with the phrase “an angel taking care of me”, by the image of a cherub hanging above the bed in which it lies for the portraits.
A few weeks ago, Madonna had given something to talk about for a controversial production for the cover of the winter issue of V Magazine. Decades after his remembered tribute to the late diva in the video for his hit Material Girl, posed almost nude to emulate Marilyn’s last photoshoot before her untimely death in 1962 at age 36.
The 63-year-old singer was photographed lying on a bed in fishnet stockings, white gloves, a cross-shaped diamond necklace, and her hair curled in Marilyn’s trademark style. And another picture shows prescription pill bottles stacked next to the same bed.
Photographer Steven Klein explained the vision behind this production, which was highly questioned on social media for the belief that it recreates Monroe’s deathbed, who was Found lifeless in her Brentwood home from an apparent overdose of sleeping pills. “Disgusting”, “gross and inappropriate” and “causes nausea”, were some of the most replicated reactions on Twitter.
“This photo essay was inspired by a session Marilyn Monroe did with photographer Bert Stern titled The Last Sitting.” Klein clarified to the magazine. “They did the session at the Bel Air hotel in 1962, before she passed away. What was supposed to be a three-hour session turned into a three-day whirlwind, working day and night. Drinking, laughing, taking photos, editing, sleeping and then taking more photos: a private affair between two artists that doesn’t usually happen anymore ”, he added.
According to Klein, when she showed Madonna the Stern photos, “she was really moved by the incandescent fragility of Marilyn at that point in her life.”
“We decided to find a hotel suite and try to capture the link between a star and the camera, the mystery and magic of this creative collaboration,” said Klein. And concluded: “We hope we have done justice to the great work of Bert Stern and Marilyn Monroe.”
