Madonna’s New Appearance at 2023 Grammys Causes a Stir
Madonna is still the iconic pop star, but her recent appearance at the Grammy Awards with her “new face” drew fans’ attention , mainly criticism.
The Queen of Pop, 64, had recently done some facial cosmetic surgery. Though this isn’t the first time, fans took it to social media to react to how she looked during the awards night.

According to Page Six, plastic surgeons believe she has undergone a nose job, facelift, and skin tightening.
Madonna introduced winners Sam Smith and Kim Petras for the song “Unholy.”
The pop star congratulated the duo and commended Kim Petras as the first transgender to bag a Grammy award.
Madonna wore a matching suit and maxi skirt, a white collared shirt underneath, and jewelry from Loree Rodkin. She included a black tie and spruced the outfit with fishnet tights and purple heels.

But it’s not her outfit that surprised her fans. It’s how her face looks. Her fans shared their confusion and disbelief on social media. Madonna recently announced her world tour, and being in the spotlight now helps publicize it.
One person wrote, “This legit looks like a Madonna impersonator with pics of the [sic] real Madonna in the background. She really f–ked up her face.” It is about the stage projection of the singer’s images over the years.

Another tweeted, “Me attempting to ignore the fact that Madonna has a whole new face. #GRAMMYs.” It came with an Adele meme video while getting confused at a basketball game.
The “Material Girl” singer who briefly appeared at the Grammys hasn’t acknowledged her bashers yet. But her speech was somehow a prelude to the reactions that she might be expecting.
She said, “Here’s what I’ve learned after four decades in music. If they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative, or dangerous, you’re definitely onto something.”
