Madonna is getting back on track after hip surgery, flaunting her curvy figure and scars on Instagram Stories.
On Sunday, the 62-year-old singer shared a series of scantily-clad pictures of a scar on her left hip and a cluster of red marks on her legs from cupping therapy – a form of alternative medicine that increases blood flow and relaxation through the application of heated cups.
Sporting a black bikini, pink hair and brightly coloured beaded jewelry, the hitmaker posed for mirror selfies adding the hashtags, “#recovery”, “#cupping”, “#beautiful scar’” at the bottom of the screen.
The “Holiday” singer cancelled the last North American show of her Madame X world tour last December because of an injury she admits brought her to tears.
She shared the news on Instagram. “As I climbed the ladder to sing ‘Batuka’ on Saturday night in Miami I was in tears from the pain of my injuries,” Madonna explained. “Which has been indescribable for the past few days.”
“With every song I sang, I said a prayer that I would make it to the next and get thru the show,” she continued. “My prayers were answered, and I made it.”
“I consider myself a warrior I never quit, I never give in, I never give up!!” she concluded. “However this time I have to listen to my body and accept that my pain is a warning I want to say how deeply sorry I am to all my fans. For having to cancel my last show.”
