The Queen of Pop was just 18 when she posed nude for photographer Cecil I. Taylor
PREVIOUSLY unseen pictures of Madonna naked are going up for auction.
The Queen of Pop has made a career out of pushing the boundaries of female sexuality and it seems her quest to stand out from the crowd started as a teenager.
The never before seen pictures were taken by photographer Cecil I.Taylor 40 years ago when Madonna was just 18 years old, five years before her first record was released.
In the black and white photos, Madonna poses in a black top and headscarf, but with no trousers or knickers on.
Despite being bottomless, the teen grins confidently at the camera, while in another shot she opens her mouth and pulls a funny face while standing with her hands on her hips.
Another set of pictures show the star – who originally started out as a dancer – completely naked while pulling a series of ballet poses.
In one, she stands with her arms above her head while pointing her toe, and in another she holds onto the ballet bar as she stretches an arm and a leg out to the side of her.
As she continues to move, another picture sees the naked teen with bent knees as she pushes her torso forward and arches her back, with nothing to protect her modesty.
However in some other shots, she does wear a loose dress, but with the buttons open so her breasts are still exposed.
The pictures were taken at the Art World Institute of Creative Arts in 1977 and will be auctioned by the Gotta Have Rock and Roll website on Wednesday.
TMZ reports there are 108 nude images of Madonna, now 59, available to purchase, ranging from £600 to £900 per image and will include the original negatives and copyrights.
The images are believed to have been taken while Madonna lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan, before she made the big move to New York to become a star.
Her debut single, Everybody, was released five years after the photos were taken, in October 1982 before she went on to have her first big international hit with Holiday in September 1983.
