She stopped by The Tonight Show on Monday where she gave host Jimmy Fallon a taste of her MDNA chrome clay mask — and was sure to sing the host a song as she showed off her beautician skills.
“I didn’t come here as a pop icon goddess,” Madonna said. “I came here as an aesthetician to rewrite the declaration of skindependence.”
With that, the singer-turned-skincare-enthusiast whipped out the mask and brushed an “M” on the 43-year-old comedian’s right cheek — “this is legendary!” Fallon said.
Fallon could hardly contain his excitement when Madonna burst into song, belting lyrics, “You’re getting a spa treatment/it’s gonna make you look so good.”
In the end, Fallon agreed that the mask did indeed make him “look so good.”

“It looks great!” he began. “I look like a baby on this side, and a 50-year-old man on this side.”
It was recently announced that the “Like a Virgin” singer would finally bring her MDNA Skin to the United States — three years after launching the skincare line in Japan.
“It’s a line I can use every day,” Madonna told WWD in an interview about the collection. “Some things I use when I don’t wear makeup and am not doing shows, and others are specifically good for having to apply makeup and be on stage under lights.…I developed it for me specifically, but it also feels universal. I mean, my children use it, my friends use it.”
The line, which launches on barneys.com Tuesday, includes everything from face wash to the clay mask she demonstrated on Instagram, ranges from $50 to $600, the latter being her Rejuvenator Set.

Twenty-seven years ago, Madonna set the template for modern pop concerts with her Blond Ambition world tour.
From its hydraulic stage to Jean-Paul Gaultier’s iconic costumes, it raised the bar for stadium-sized spectacle.
Now, after seven huge world tours, the star tells the BBC she’s “exploring” a smaller-scale show in the future.
“I’ve done so many shows – world tours, stadiums, sports arenas, you name it – that I feel like I have to reinvent that now too,” she explains.
“I like doing intimate shows and being able to talk directly to the audience.
“This is something I’m exploring right now: the idea of doing a show that doesn’t travel the world, but stays in one place and utilises not only humour and the music in a more intimate setting but other people’s music, as well, and other entertainment.
“Kind of a revolving door of amazing, gifted, unique talent – dancers, musicians, singers, comedians, me, humour. I don’t know! Like, I’m trying to come up with all those ideas now.”
The concerts will presumably owe much to the vaudeville-style Tears of a Clown show that Madonna performed twice in 2016 – once as a gift to fans in Australia, and again at a fundraiser for her Raising Malawi charity.
The low-key gigs featured the pop icon dressed as a clown, riding a tricycle, chatting to the audience and telling jokes when not performing stripped-back renditions of some of her favourite songs.
Footage of the Australian concert appears on the star’s new DVD, released on Friday, which documents her 2015-16 Rebel Heart Tour.
In an exclusive interview with BBC News, she talked about touring life, changing attitudes to sex, and her recent dispute with a courier company.
Before we start, there’s one thing I need to know: Did your FedEx package ever arrive?
Ha ha! Yes, it has. FedEx is blaming customs, customs is blaming FedEx and we’ll never know what happened. But I have it now.
So, I saw the Rebel Heart tour when you were in London and the DVD does a really good job of capturing what it was like to be in the audience. How do you go about that?
I was there every step of the way, every day for months and months. It’s really hard to capture the true feeling of the excitement and the passion and the heat and the blood, sweat and tears. I’m pleased with the way it came out.
There’s a particularly touching sequence during True Blue, where everybody in the audience embraces each other.
I know, it’s a very sweet, emotional moment in the show. I didn’t expect it to be, but when I look back at the DVD it almost brings a tear to my eye because everyone seems so in love.
When the owners of New York City’s Studio 54 were indicted on federal income tax charges in 1979, Mark Fleischman knew he was next in line to take over the infamous nightclub.
“Studio 54 was the most famous club in the world during the late ‘70s and I knew it,” Fleischman recalled to Fox News. Fleischman eventually became the owner of the hotspot. He recently released his memoir, “Inside Studio 54,” which details the rise and fall of Manhattan’s champagne and cocaine-fueled lair.
He insisted Madonna was a diva long before she was a pop star.
“I don’t know when she first became a diva, but it was in her blood,” he said. “She was there one afternoon to do a soundcheck on her song ‘Holiday.’ She was meeting Frankie Crocker, who was the top DJ in the United States. Most performers really wanted to please him. And she was cursing at him because he was late. I found it interesting that was her attitude before she even became famous.”

The main house has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four garages and 20 parking places.
This collection features 22 smash songs from the “Material Girl.” It kicks off with “Iconic” and the unapologetic “Bitch I’m Madonna,” prior to her classic hit “Burning Up,” which had a retro vibe to it. The DVD includes an acoustic version of “True Blue” and a distinct version of “Like a Virgin.”
Equally fun was her “Living for Love” song, which was followed by such pop staples as “La Isla Bonita,” and “Dress You Up,” which was incorporated as a medley with “Lucky Star” and “Into the Groove.” Some of the highlight songs were “Like a Prayer,” “Music,” her namesake song “Material Girl” and her encore performance of “Holiday.” She commanded the stage for the duration of the “Rebel Heart Tour,” where she proved that the pop throne still belongs to her, well over 30 years into her accomplished career.
With her “Rebel Heart Tour,” Madonna was able to take the music fan on a journey of her hits over all the years from the 80’s until her latest radio singles today. It was a true labor of love, and for a viewer, a treat from a musical goddess.
Overall, this live DVD and Blu-ray of the “Rebel Heart Tour” is a must for any die-hard fan of Madonna, who is the best-selling female recording artist of all time; moreover, it is recommended for anybody who may have missed her “Rebel Heart Tour,” since it gives the viewer a front-row seat to that vivacious musical experience. Eagle Vision delivers once again. It garners an A rating.

Madonna may be the highest-selling female artist of all time, but at home she’s just Mom — or “Mambo,” as the four youngest of her six kids call her.
The pop icon, 59, offered a rare glimpse inside her private world, inviting PEOPLE to join her in Malawi on July 11, when she opened the Mercy James Centre for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, the nation’s first children’s hospital. A month later, at her home in London, she opened up about her emotional adoption journey, why she’s dedicated to helping the children of Malawi — and her busy, rewarding life as mom to Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 17, David, 11, Mercy, 11, and 5-year-old twins Estere and Stella.
Malawi — a beautiful but struggling country in southeast Africa — has become a “second home” for Madonna in recent years. After first visiting in 2006, she founded Raising Malawi, a nonprofit that aims to educate and support health services for countless orphans and children in the country. It’s also where she met four kids who would change her life forever.
Already mom to Lourdes (with former flame Carlos Leon) and Rocco (with ex-husband Guy Ritchie), the singer first saw son David Banda at Home of Hope, an orphanage in Lilongwe, Malawi’s capital city. He was a baby battling pneumonia and malaria at the time, and feeling an instant connection, she began the adoption process.
But when she brought him home to London in 2008, the reception wasn’t anything she’d imagined. “Every newspaper said I kidnapped him,” Madonna says. “In my mind, I was thinking, ‘Wait a minute. I’m trying to save somebody’s life. Why are you all s—-ing on me right now?’ I did everything by the book. That was a real low point for me. I would cry myself to sleep.”
Madonna met Mercy James around the same time as David, and adopting her was even more difficult. Because she had recently divorced Ritchie, Malawian officials told her “I was not capable of raising a child,” she says. “The way I was treated — that sexist behavior — was ridiculous,” adds Madonna, who successfully challenged the refusal in Malawi’s Supreme Court and brought home Mercy in 2009.
In February, the star brought home Estere and Stella, orphaned twins whom she met at Home of Hope 2½ years ago. Last summer, she again began the adoption process, which she says was just as rigorous: “Because I’m a public figure, people don’t want to be perceived as giving me any kind of special treatment, so I get the hard road.”
Adds the proud mom: “It’s complicated, but it’s so worth it.”
After seven months, Estere and Stella are acclimated. “It’s like they’ve always been here,” says Madonna of the precocious pair, who have become the stars of her latest Instagram posts.
Moana and Sing play on loop at her home, but when “Holiday” came on during dinner and David told the twins it was one of Mambo’s hits, “they were like, ‘Huh?’” Madonna says.
Of the fact that their mom is the Queen of Pop: “They don’t have a clue,” she says, “and that’s a good thing. I’m just their mother.”
