Madonna has posed in a seductive new photo shoot smoking a cigarette while lying on a motorcycle. While the photo, in which the singer poses in just a bra, is racy enough, the 55-year-old may find herself in hot water over the image -- with her daughter Lourdes Leon. Madonna publicly chastised her daughter in 2012 when the then 15-year-old was sprung smoking a cigarette in New York.

Never one to be shy, Madonna wore a push up bustier for the shoot -- from which her chest spilled over the top -- along with a suit jacket and leather gloves.

Posting the picture on Instagram on Tuesday, Madonna captioned the picture: 'Feeling A little Butch today! The Girl needs to sleep! #rebelheart #artforfreedom #revolutionoflove.' When Madonna publicly chastised her daughter in 2012, the interviewer pointed out she has smoked in her film clips. The star said she was not a hypocrite as it was not real.'I don't smoke. That's just an accessory... There's a difference. 'She smoked that cigarette before I did the Girls Gone Wild video, so she didn't' get that from me, OK?'

Smoking and motorbike posing aside, Madonna's Instagram post once again hinted at a possible new album or single.

Recently the singer has been incorporating the phrase 'Rebel heart' into her posts, prompting fans to think she is coming out with new material. The iconic singer has not released an album since 2012's MDNA.

No Bump Here

Rihanna has dismissed the pregnancy claims in the best way she knows how -- by displaying her washboard abs. The 26-year-old singer proved once and for all that she is not with child by wearing a white bra top which drew attention to her enviably flat stomach as she enjoyed a night out at The Supper Club in Hollywood on Tuesday night. Rihanna's evening also saw her reunited with boyfriend Drake, after more than a week apart. The rumours began when Rihanna, who is in a relationship with singer Drake, was spotted drinking decaffeinated coffee. According to Rihanna has given up smoking weed and she 'refused to attend the official after party on Drake's tour because there would be too much alcohol and weed smoke there.'

The Kate effect does it again!

The Tory Burch dress Kate Middleton wore on her second day in New Zealand has completely sold out. The $395 Paulina dress from the designer's resort 2014 collection, on sale for $237, was snapped up by women across the globe on the Tory Burch website and on last night. Made from an open knit and textural fringe, the dress' fitted waist -- a Kate Middleton favorite -- combined with its figure-flattering pleated skirt clearly created an irresistible ladylike silhouette for royal fans -- and the reasonable price didn't hurt, either.

Though many New Zealander's had hoped that Kate would wear something from an Antipodean label, the Duchess instead chose the graphic-print dress by American designer Tory Burch. Within minutes of the event, thanks to reports on her outfit choice on Twitter, the dress began selling out on, where the dress was priced at $450. This isn't the first time the Princess has caused a fashion frenzy.

The Issa dress she wore for her engagement announcement also promptly sold out, along with the purple Seraphine number she was pictured in for the family's first official portrait after the birth of her son. Last year MaxMara even went as far as reissuing a style Kate was seen in -- and renaming it The Kate. The Duchess -- who, at the time, was just weeks away from giving birth to George -- wore the cashmere, knee-length overcoat on a visit to Cambridge, garnering a storm of publicity for the brand.
