Pop icon Madonna is raising eyebrows again with her latest project. The singer released an NFT chart series called Mother of Creation this week. The three-video series shows Madonna giving birth to various objects like trees, insects and butterflies. Proceeds from the NFT will go to charity.
Naked Madonna gives birth to tree in graphic NFT video
Beeple, an NFT market leader, recently partnered with Madonna for an NFT called mother of creation. The NFTs include videos of a graphically rendered Madonna giving birth to trees, butterflies and insects. The videos show close-up images of her private parts. Scans of Madonna’s body created the NSFW 3D close-ups.
Upon its May 10 release, Madonna described the project in an Instagram video.
“We decided to create something that is absolutely and totally related to the idea of creation and motherhood.”
“Using the opening of each video, it’s basically me giving birth, whether I’m sitting on a tank in a post-apocalyptic city, or in a hospital bed in a very sterile lab environment. I do what women have been doing since the dawn of time, which is to give birth. On a more existential level, I give birth to art and creativity, otherwise we would be lost.
Madonna worked on the NFT for over a year
On May 11, Madonna shared a second Instagram post that detailed the project, “I think it’s really important for people to know that a lot of thought and conversation went into creating these videos.”
The always provocative singer asked her collaborator Mike Winklemann, “Are people completely weird?” She said, “It’s not often that robot centipedes come out of my vagina.”
She read text messages between the two describing what she wanted. “We have a forest with a creepy crawling insect coming out of me.” She continued, “We need a post-apocalyptic cityscape with this giant tree growing out of me.”
Proceeds from NFT sales will go to non-profits, National Bailout, V Day and Voices of Children.
On May 11, the project was shared on SuperRare’s Instagram account. In a voiceover, Madonna says, “My journey in life as a woman is like that of a tree.” She continues: “Starting with a small seed, always growing against the resistance of the earth. The infinite weight of gravity.
NFTs and cryptocurrencies have recently fallen. Some in the community don’t think Madonna’s NFT will help change things.
On a crypto Reddit thread, someone wrote: “This is why we deserve to be pummeled by the markets.”
Another commenter wrote: “lol they will do anything to try to stay relevant.”
On Twitter, Vijay Pravin, NFT professional and founder of bitsCrunch tweeted“The launch of Madonna’s NFT with Beeple was met with mixed emotions by the community. Some were inspired and others found ‘flaws’ in the artwork.
