Take a look:

Here are a few of the Internet’s most offensive reactions:

From The Daily Mail

So, what have we learnt?

1) Even pop deities grow armpit hair.

2) Madonna’s 55?! Are you kidding?!

3) If you plan on exiting the house wearing nothing but a bow tie and lingerie, just put down the razor for a couple of weeks. Your choice of clothing will instantly appear to be legitimate.
