Madonna‘s name has been synonymous with controversy ever since the singer’s “Like a Virgin” days.

From simulating sex acts during her concerts, to dropping multiple f-bombs on Late Show with David Letterman, the pop icon, 53, has been creating controversies with her salacious stunts for decades.

With her latest scandal — flashing her nipple at a concert in Istandul, Turkey — making headlines across the globe, there’s no telling what else Madge has cooking up in that brilliant yet oh-so-scandalous head of hers.

However, Madonna’s controversies doesn’t end with her recent intentional nip slip.

Now appearing to be eating her own words, footage of Madonna criticizing Janet Jackson’s infamous 2004 “wardrobe malfunction” rencently surfaced online. The interview, filmed in January before Madonna’s Super Bowl performance with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., features the singer blasting the “Rhythm Nation” singer for exposing her breast on live TV.

“You don’t have to show nipples to be interesting,” she said. “It doesn’t necessarily mean you’re cutting edge if you do, right?”

On his radio show Monday morning, shock jock Howard Stern blasted Madge’s Istanbul stunt, and even went as far as to call the mother of four “desperate.”

However, Madonna’s MDNA has proven to be nothing short of scandal. Last week, the singer projected a swastika on the face of right-wing French politican Marine Le Pen. Le Pen later snapped back at Madonna, saying, “We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes.”
