I think I’m supposed to be erupting in a controversy, but really? Another celebrity poses topless. Damn, stop the presses. Everyone must go into ‘fake outrage mode’ or ‘you go mode.’ I’m opting for the happy middle. I clicked. I saw. I shrugged.

Everyone is losing their collective minds this morning over Madonna’s Interview spread. She’s 56 and baring it inside the latest issue of Interview. The spread was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot.

It’s not just the photos that are causing a stir. Actually it’s her interview that induces the headshaking. Not only was the interview conducted by David Blaine, yes that David Blaine, but Madonna went on a meandering interview.

New cover of Interview out this week! The ART issue! @interviewmag thanks to everyone who contributed!

Madonna opens up about drugs, borrowing the philosophical musings of Will Smith’s kids. “It’s about how people take drugs to connect to God or to a higher level of consciousness. I keep saying, ‘Plugging into the matrix’.”

“If you get high, you can do that, which is why a lot of people drop acid or do drugs, because they want to get closer to God.”

Bird in a Cage @interviewmag thank you Mert and Markus

Well, someone fell in the rabbit hole and hit her head. Hurry, someone give her the blue pill.

Sometimes I sleep standing Up! @interviewmag Thank you David Blaine!

So, why the topless controversy? Well, she said she found Kim Kardashian’s Paper cover confusing. Evidently, it wasn’t too much of a head scratcher. She’s joining the reality star in making the Internet collectively shrug. Something interesting to watch? How the Internet memes this. Kim Kardashian was too easy, while Madonna will take some creativity.
