This is sort of weird. Not important in any way, mind you, bust just sort of weird. Madonna posted an image to her Instagram a couple days ago of herself in a stark black bob wig and a Joy Division t-shirt, the universally acknowledged t-shirt of poseurs across the world.
Many of her fans commenting on the photo found it to be the best thing ever, as super fans in comments tend to do. Others thought it looked a little weird. “You’re really trying here with the Joy Division shirt. Sooo not you,” opined one.
Isn’t it though?
But many noted there was something off about the photo.
“Ur head looks superimposed on ur body. Joy division rules (not as much as u)” wrote one sleuth.
“Clearly her head and body don’t match. Not even the same skin color. But whatever!” wrote another.
“Strange picture. They’ve put her head on the body of a teenager. Very odd,” added another.
In the image there’s a watermark for Nachopalooza, the handle of a Chilean photographer, and big Madonna fan, who made the photoshop. But who’s the body? It’s actually Australian fashion blogger Amelia Goldie.
I asked Goldie what she thought of the situation, but she declined to comment as she’s in the middle of writing something about it herself. Madonna, or her Instagram manager rather, probably just meant it to be a silly goof, but it is a bit strange that she would pass along a photo of her head on top of a 22 year old woman’s body. Then again, that’s sort of a metaphor for Madonna isn’t it?
