Madonna shows off armpit hair on Instagram

By Joy Perrone,

Madonna is busy on Instagram again, this time showing off a snapshot of her long armpit hair.

Just days after making headlines for dressing up as Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen, Madge is back in the spotlight for sharing her newest Instagram picture. In it, the "Like a Virgin" singer is clad in black lingerie as she proudly lifts her arm, revealing a thicket of long armpit hair.

She captioned the photo with, "Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove." The photo currently has 38,000 likes and 8,000 comments.

The Huffington Post reports that Art For Freedom is a global initiative that Madonna helped start, which encourages the use of creative expression as a way to bring attention to human rights violations. It's unclear what armpit hair has to do with human rights violations, but Madge has been open about her distaste for shaving in the past. She told Harper's Bazaar in 2011 that she refused to shave in high school, and got called a "hairy monster" because of it.

What do you think of Madonna's armpit photograph? Cool feminist stance, or TMI?
