Madonna Had Hairy Armpits in High School: Great or Gross?

Remember when Madonna was a young punk? Well, back in high school, her personal hygiene wasn't exactly ... traditional. And she wasn't very popular with the boys. "The boys in my school would make fun of me," she says in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar, adding that they called her a "hairy monster."

“And then, going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits." Later on, Madonna adds, "Straight men did not find me attractive. I think they were scared of me because I was different."



Today, if you really want to annoy Madonna, mention her age (she's 53). "I find whenever someone writes anything about me, my age is right after my name. It’s almost like they’re saying, 'Here she is, but remember she’s this age, so she’s not that relevant anymore.' When you put someone’s age down, you’re limiting them."

And believe it or not, if Madonna hadn't been a pop superstar, she might have been a ... copy editor. Of teenage daughter Lourdes's blogs, she says: "I proofread her blogs and edit them. I give her a hard time when I think she’s being a lazy writer."

    There is nothing 'unhygienic' about unshaven skin. Just because my husband is hairy does not make him 'disgusting', and most women who prefer not to shave by personal choice (unlike many women who shave to please 'society') keep themselves very clean.

    No Madonna men weren't scared of you because you were different, they were scared you would raise your arms and show off the attrocious hairy arm pits you had. Good God woman they invented the razor for a reason!

    hairy pits are actually equally gross from a purely aesthetic standpoint on both men and women, imho. I would like it if everyone shaved or waxed their pits. You will actually stink less.

    She has more hair than I do. If women don't want to shave their pits, that's fine, but then they should not wear clothing that shows their pits.

    Why do you say that? You can just look away if you don't like to see a woman with hairy armpits. Do you really feel the need to tell every woman that doesn't want to shave to cover everything up?

    If this trend becomes more popular among women, there will not be any way to look away.

    I do not know why people make such a big deal about women not shaving their armpits or their legs. If you don't like it, you can just look away! If you don't like it, don't have sex with her! Not to mention that men are not expected to shave everything, so why should women be expected to? Silly people.

    IMO, Madonna is just a gross human being in general. She's one of the biggest skanks around. (Although Kim Kardashian and her sisters are creeping up on her in the whore department.) As for Madonna's hairy armpits, doesn't anybody remember the scene in her first movie, "Desperately Seeking Susan," when she goes into a public restroom and uses one of those air hand dryers to cool the fur growing under her arms? It was pretty disgusting, just like her. Please to enjoy...

    I think her drive to be different is wonderful. And it's sometimes difficult being secure with yourself in high school. During the winter I barely ever shave. But I wear leggings and sweatshirts so you can't see. So for me it's laziness. But madonnas pretty cool for flaunting it.

    Madonna isn't known for her Style or Class. She hasn't an ounce of it Ever. Punk doesn't equal Class. You are either born with it or you are not. And, who cares about her arm pits.
    Those are her pits if she likes them Funky - Funk On....

    Not "Great" but "Great for her". There's not really anything wrong with not shaving. I know a lot of my female friends don't shave their legs during the winter (nobody sees them is their reasoning).

    In the grand scheme of the universe I'd say this does not matter much, but I think it's highly unsightly.
