Madonna's Septum Piercing: Real Or Fake?

Madonna likes to get people talking and she has done just that with her latest style snap.

The 56-year-old popstar shared an Instagram photo on 14 July showing her new facial piercing - a septum ring that features her initial above a pearl.

She captioned the septum selfie: "You Can't Mess with this lucky Star #bitchimmadonna #iconic #rebelhearttour"
