(NEW YORK) — Madonna’s working super-hard to get her upcoming tour ready for public consumption, and she’s got bruises to show for it. On Saturday, she posted a series of close-up photos on her official Facebook page, each showing a different injury she’d sustained rehearsing for the tour.
One photo, a close-up of her swollen lip, was captioned, “Cut my lip from rehearsing Girl Gone Wild,” which is her latest single. Another photo was captioned “bruises on my leg from rehearsing” while a third had the caption “heart-shaped bruise on my a**.”
Madonna’s tour, in support of her upcoming album MDNA, kicks off May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel. It gets to North America in August, with the first date coming on August 28 in Philadelphia.
Madonna turns 54 on August 16.
