Is Madonna's Armpit Hair Fake?

Hair removal is a contentious topic that many of us have strong feelings about. Judging by a recent picture Madonna posted on her Instagram feedt it appears the pop star's attitude to this hairy topic is of the "let it all hang out" variety.
In the candid snap, the Hung Up singer gazes at the camera and proudly raises her arm to reveal a lustrous pelt of underarm hair. The caption reads: “Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove.” It’s a sentiment that is close to our heart. People have the right to do anything they want with their body hair, the Material Girl included. But, it seems some of her fans have questioned the authenticity of the growth. Comments running alongside the image call it out as a fake. Say what?

As fans of Madge’s Instagram posts, we've seen her regularly throws poses with her arms up and there hasn’t been a hint of hair, let alone stubble. Hair that length seems like it would take months to grow — but is it really an issue if she is faking? Or should she put her money where her mouth is and really let it all hang out? To the comments section with your thoughts.
