She reposted the images again, this time putting a red heart over the nipple. "I am reposting photographs Instagram had took down without warning or notification," she wrote.

Madonna says, "It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows for every inch of a woman's body to be shown except her nipple. As if that is the only part of a woman's anatomy that could be sexualised. The nipple that nourishes the baby!"
The Material Girl singer asked, "Can't a man's nipple be experienced as erotic? And what about a woman's ass which is never censored anywhere."
