Madonna has recently come under fire following the release of her most recent artistic project... and now, she's here to defend it.
A succession of short NFT videos have just been released showing a digital depiction of Madonna giving birth to trees, butterflies, and robotic centipedes.

Flowers also spring out of a three-dimensional scan of the singer's vagina.
Totally breaking the internet, the Mother of Creation collection was a joint venture between both the Queen of Pop and artist Mike Winkelmann - also known as Beeple.
The Mother of Creation collection shows three separate videos. The first depicts an animated Madonna encased within a futuristic-looking glass cabinet as a tree trunk sprouts from her vagina and exits the glass case.
The second juxtaposes the previously clinical and bright setting, seeing a 3D Madonna sitting on the hood of a truck in a dark, apocalyptic environment.
She then parts her legs to reveal a whole flight of orange butterflies emerging from her vagina.
The final clip displays the singer lying down in a lush green oasis, surrounded by red and yellow flowers. Ending with a bang, the third video concluded with a robotic centipede crawling out of her vagina as she lies on her back watching the phenomenon.
Following a whole flood of criticism on Twitter, labelling the mother of six as 'creepy' and 'desperate' for the avant-garde NFT video project - Madonna has since hit back, avidly defending her creative choices.
During an interview with the artist, Beeple, the Material Girl singer claimed: "I’m doing what women have been doing since the beginning of time, which is giving birth.”
The 63-year-old added: "But on a more existential level, I’m giving birth to art and creativity and we would be lost without both."
“I think it’s really important that a lot of thought and conversation went into creating these videos,” she continued.
Seeing the light-hearted side of things, the American singer clearly wasn't phased by the internet's confusion and criticism over the project.
"Not often does a robot centipede crawl out of my vagina," she singer joked during the interview, which she subsequently shared via her Instagram.
The True Blue singer has since issued a statement, revealing that, “all works were conceived with a 3D scan."
Continuing, she added details about the thought process behind the bizarre NFT videos highlighting that she “wanted to investigate the concept of creation, not only the way a child enters the world through a woman’s vagina, but also the way an artist gives birth to creativity”.
Regardless, it's fair to say that with the addition of butterflies, trees and robot centipedes - this definitely isn't your typical nude.
