Madonna is back to her old tricks… again.

The 53-year-old pop icon shocked fans in Rome on Tuesday evening when she flashed her derriere during a performance of “Human Nature.”

During the song, Madge began a mini-striptease, first taking off some of her microphone equipment. She then kneeled down, turned her back to the audience, and showed that she had “No Fear” written on her back. Next: the big reveal, with the singer finally lowering her pants. Luckily, Madonna was wearing a black lace thong and fishnet tights.

In case you hadn’t heard, this isn’t the first time Madonna has shown some skin in recent days.

During a performance of the same song this weekend in Istanbul, Madge pulled down her top to expose her right nipple.

Don’t expect this to be the last time Madonna attempts to stir the pot — she’s been doing it for over 28 years. To chronicle Madge’s history of courting controversy,  Celebuzz broke down some of her most jaw-dropping moments — from burning crosses to kissing Britney Spears during the 2003 Video Music Awards. Check them out below.

Do you think Madonna should calm down? Or is she just “expressing” herself? Sound off in the comments section.
