Madonna: Like an Orthopedic Dominatrix

Madonna knows there is nothing like a pair of therapeutic leather gloves and above-the-knee leather S&M boots to give a music icon all the funky joint support she needs as she readies for a world tour.

The ageless Queen of Pop got situated in the back of her car after leaving a restaurant in Cannes on Tuesday.

This is what it feels like for a nearly 50-year-old girl.
