Madonna, is that really you?

The 64-year-old singer, actress, and Queen of Pop attended the 2023 Grammy Awards to present ahead of Sam Smith and Kim PetrasUnholy performance, and she managed to be the center of attention thanks to her ultra-smooth, wrinkle-free face.

She Gave A Little Speech

Wearing a black maxi skirt suit, looped braids, and bleached brows, Madonna gave a powerful speech thanking “all the rebels out there.”

“You guys need to know, all you troublemakers out there, you need to know that your fearlessness does not go unnoticed,” she said. “You are seen, you are heard, and most of all, you are appreciated.”

However, it was her incredibly smooth face that got noticed the most.

Too Much Surgery?

People quickly went on Twitter with their reactions to the pop icon’s “new face.”

One wrote, “Holy s**t #Madonna went too far with the plastic surgery and didn't have a closeup.”

'Who Is That?'

Another tweeted, “After being distracted on my phone with something boring for work just now... I looked up at the #GRAMMYs and said ‘Who is that?!’ to my husband... and he said ‘Are you kidding? That's Madonna.’ And I don't think I'm the wrong or confused one in this conversation.”

Reactions Were Shockingly Blunt

One person couldn’t be more blunt, saying, “#Madonna looked embalmed at the the #GRAMMYS.” Meanwhile, another wrote, “Clearly Madonna & Lil’ Kim went to the same plastic surgeon. What the f**k happened?!”

It Needs Some Explanation

Another shared a photo from the 2003 film, The Fighting Temptations, in which Beyonce’s character is explaining something.

“Me explaining Sam Smith, Kim Petras, Gay Rights, Bottoms and Madonna’s face to my mom,” the caption said.

'Wait, Is That Really Madonna?'

One person posted a meme video of a poker-faced Adele with the caption, “Me attempting to ignore the fact that Madonna has a whole new face.” It got a lot of replies like “She is unrecognizable” and “Wait, is that really Madonna? No way.”

She Didn't Have To

Another person wasn’t too harsh and said they wished “Madonna never touched her face. There really was no reason. She was going to age beautifully. She's always been beautiful.”

'Embrace The Aging Process'

And another had some beauty advice for the singer, saying, “Madonna needs to stop with the plastic surgery and embrace the aging process. She’s nearly unrecognizable at this point.”
