The Queen of Pop--and controversy--Madonna has just released some outtakes from her latest album "Hard Candy" which was dropped back in April.

The pictures show the "Material Girl" in a boxing ring, wearing leopard skin boxer trunks, protective head gear and some bling which include a big crucifix.

In the shoot, Madonna was also rocking a pair of mean-looking lace up black boots that reached up to her knees, work-out gloves, and her iconic black corset.

The pictures, which show Madonna wearing the cross between her extensively exposed cleavage, are bound to cause some controversy among some religious groups which have already demonized the icon due to the pop idol’s penchant for "desecrating" what many consider to be religious icons.

These controversies, in my opinion, are manufactured by the ageless diva in order for her to stay in the public discourse whether you hate her with passion or are her most devoted fan.
