Madonna's new hair is an instant hit with fans who are fawning over her luscious locks. Her loyal followers' reaction is proof, as if it were needed, that this material girl is a true icon.

It's a super out-of-date trope that long hairstyles have an age limit and that women should stick to short hairstyles post a certain age. However, Madonna's new hair shows that long hairstyles for women over 50 are never a bad idea.

The superstar's sleek hair is usually parted straight down the middle but, for a change, she chose to style it with a side parting. We all know that changing the way you part your hair can totally change how you look. Whether you go for wavy hairstylescurly hairstyles, or natural hairstyles.

Well, the jury is in, or the court of public opinion at least (Instagram) and it's guilty as charged. Guilty of what? Why being fabulous of course. "Side Part Queen!!!" said one fan. "That side part tho!" added another.

The Papa Don't Preach singer isn't one to stagnate and is beloved for her ability to move with the times. Only recently Madonna released 3D versions of her vagina in NFT and a live feed on social media saw Madonna banned from Instagram Live. Ever the controversial figure, well versed in splitting opinion as she is, some were shocked when Madonna flashed her thong on TikTok.

To her legions of adoring fans this mother of four, aged 63 years old, is a reminder that you don't need to adhere to society's vision of how women should behave - at any age. 

Perhaps not so shockingly, Madonna admits that she 'never' thinks about her age - especially when she's performing. In fact, she only thinks about it when 'extremely ignorant' people say it to her.

Quoting these ignorant folk she told V magazine (opens in new tab),"'Don't you think you've earned the right to just sit back and enjoy all of your success and all things that you've achieved... I say to them, 'Wait a second. Why do you think I do what I do?' 'Why do you do what you do? Do you have a stop date for yourself?'"
