Polished finish: Madonna on the cover of W magazine's March 2009 edition. Three years after this spread was shot, some rather more unflattering behind-the-scenes shots of a scantily-clad Madage have leaked online
Embarrassing photographs of Madonna in a scantily-clad state have leaked on the internet.
The candid snaps show the Queen of Pop lounging around on a sofa wearing a see-through bra and a black thong.
In another shot, Madge is seen topless facing a mirror as she changes into an outfit.

The behind-the-scenes photos were taken in a hotel room during a December 2008 magazine shoot in Brazil.
Three years on, the unflattering shots have made their way on to various internet blogs showing the 53-year-old singer - then aged 50 - in a series of unladylike positions.
In one she is sat with her legs apart while slumped on the sofa in her underwear.

The blonde wig she was wearing is off-centre and she appears to be holding a lacy accessory in her hand.
Three months after the shoot, fashion bible W Magazine published a 46-page spread of rather more flattering, touched-up photographs of the singer in its March 2009 edition.
Madonna has turned director for the past two years, working on her film W.E. but is due to release another musical offering next year in the form of a new album.
