Madonna Reportedly Desperate To Return To Natural Looks Ahead Of Celebration Tour

Reports are going around that Madonna is so concerned about what critics have been saying about her face that she's looking to go back to her natural looks before she hits the road for her highly anticipated world tour.

The 64-year-old music icon sparked a wave of plastic surgery speculation after she was seen modeling a drastically different look at the 2023 Grammy Awards in February.

And while Madonna was quick to slam the critical comments about her looks - while denying any plastic surgery rumors - behind the scenes, an insider says she was deeply 'affected' by the criticism and is taking steps to ensure that she returns to her more natural self before hitting the stage for her first concert on July 15.

'Despite what people think, the criticism over her drastically different appearance does affect her,' the source revealed to, adding that Madonna is currently undergoing procedures that will restore her natural looks.

'She sees and hears what people say about her and, for the tour, she wants to look more like herself again for her fans.'

And Madonna's famous face is not the only thing that fans will be treated to when she steps out on stage for her 80-show tour.

According to the source, the chart-topper and mother-of-six is also planning to enlist her children - Lourdes, 26, Rocco, 22, David, 17, Mercy 17, and 10-year-old twins Stella and Estere - in her shows, with the insider revealing: 'She will be bringing them along on tour and will include them in the show.'

Madonna, who is infamous for her perfectionism, is sparing no expense or effort on the tour because she knows it may be her last, the insider continued, revealing: 'Madonna is really turning it out. She is in incredible shape and is going to kill it with this tour.

'It may be her last tour, so she wants to make it perfect. She is incredible shape and her body is sick.'

'This is her labor of love,' the insider adds. 'Her perfectionism is driving everyone up the wall but she does not care. The crew is working their a** off because everyone wants to make her happy.

'She has no issues whatsoever with firing someone at the drop of a hat.'

In terms of the visual aesthetics of the show, the insider tells that she chose to work with a clean slate.

'She wanted younger dancers and she is using a fresh crew this time around,' they explained.

'Madonna likes creative people who can take direction. She is usually not one to take suggestions and knows what she wants.' reached out to representatives for Madonna, who declined to comment.

In addition, the source says that The Celebration Tour, which will bring her across several countries in North America and Europe from July 2023 until January 2024, 'will be a visually mind-blowing and a total delight to the senses.'

In February, Madonna shocked the world when she appeared at the Grammy Awards looking drastically different - featuring a puffed up tight-skinned face.

She poked fun at herself two weeks later in a slimmed-down photo that featured the caption: 'Look how cute I am now that the swelling from surgery has gone down.'

Six weeks after the award show drama, Madonna shared behind the scenes tour preparation footage with her fans on Instagram.

In the post, the singer seemed to strip away the filters and fillers, as she flaunted a much more natural look.

In a separate recent video, Madonna looks very much herself as she strums a guitar during a tour rehearsal.

Over the years, Madonna has gained the reputation of being a difficult boss to work for - especially when on the road.

In a documentary about her 2016 Rebel Hearts Tour, she was completely unapologetic about this.

'I know that I can be difficult and demanding and push you, and sometimes my ego is out of control, but I am a Leo.'

In the film, she also showed footage of the grueling process that her dancers on tour must go through. 'She wants the best, and she wants people who work really hard,' one dancer asserts of Madonna.

Madonna announced The Celebration tour in January 2023. At the time of her announcement she said in a statement: 'I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.'

At the time of her announcement in January, Madonna said in a statement: 'I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for.'

Following the uproar caused by her drastically different appearance at the Grammy's in February, she addressed the haters by stating that she 'isn't going to start' apologizing for the way she looks.

'I wanted to give the last award which was Album of the year, but I thought it was more important that I present the first trans-woman performing at the Grammys — a history making moment,' Madonna wrote.

'Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim, many people chose to only talk about close-up photos of me taken with a long lens camera by a press photographer that would distort anyone's face!!'

'Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny,' she stated.

'I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way that I look or dress and I'm not going to start.'

She continued, 'I have been degraded by the media since the beginning of my career but I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come.'

I'm not necessarily believing this story regarding her reversing what the surgeons did to her face, but let's entertain the rumor for a second.

Everyone keeps saying that she's had a lot of surgery on her face, but I don't think she's gone under the knife. I just think she got overzealous with the fillers and botox. So I think if she lays off the needles she'll be fine.

When she was in her 40s and majority of her 50s I thought she looked pretty good. It seems like once she hit 60 she started to get insecure about aging and got a little filler happy.

I often wonder with her dating guys around Lola's age started to make her feel the need to compete with women half her age.

As for the comments regarding her work ethic, it's a tale as old as time that Madonna is a perfectionist when it comes to her stage performances, hence why she is the queen of pop and her live shows are often imitated, and never duplicated.

I'm definitely looking forward to whatever it is Madonna will be bringing to her highly-anticipated Celebration tour.
