Madonna Naked and Unafraid in 3 Animated NFTs, Butterflies Escape from Her Nether Parts


“Predators pick at my fruit and scrape my bark.”

Madonna, never one for subtlety, is auctioning off 3 NFTS today. They’re animated 1 minute films she narrates in which she’s naked, legs open, with a lot of different objects grow from her nether parts.

I’m being modest in my description because Google will censor me if I get more descriptive.

The whole this is called Mother of Creation. It can be found here.

Madonna collaborated with something called Beeple. She says on the website: “When Mike and I decided to collaborate on this project a year ago, I was excited to have the opportunity to share my vision of the world as a mother and an artist with Mike’s own unique point of view. It’s been an amazing journey building this together from an intellectual idea to an emotional story, giving birth to art. I wanted to investigate the concept of creation, not only the way a child enters the world through a woman’s vagina, but also the way an artist gives birth to creativity. Most importantly we wanted to use this opportunity to benefit mothers and children who are most in need right now.”

Three charities benefit from the sale of the NFTs: The Voices of Children Foundation, City of Joy, and Black Mamas Bail Out. A crypto company called Moonpay is also contributing $100,000 to each charity. Moonpay just secured $86.7 million in funding with help from Jared Kushner’s brother, Josh, and a roster of celebrities (who probably didn’t invest anything) including Ashton Kutcher, Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, Bruce Willis*, Paris Hilton, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Matthew McConaughey. (*I’m sure has no idea what this is.)
