Yesterday’s clip from Anderson Cooper‘s daytime talk show, Anderson, is a whole boatload of awkward. First of all we have Madonna wearing some Park Avenue lady’s version of an S&M getup; and secondly, it’s the noisiest outfit that the Material Girl has probably ever worn. Ever.

While Madonna happily discussed her two Golden Globe nominations for Best Original Score and Best Original Song from her upcoming movie W.E., it’s more than obvious by the look on her face that she’s second guessing her choice in fabric. Anderson, always the gentleman, also seems a bit confused by the sounds that, quite frankly, sound a bit like a case of some severe flatulence. Yikes!

Whether she’s rocking leather or pleather or something similar isn’t exactly clear, but either way, it’s a hot mess. It also makes one wonder whether or not she consulted with her stylist on this, if she even has a stylist these days and if she does, has that stylist now been fired?

I very rarely get embarrassed for Madonna. In all her incarnations, I’ve loved her and her ability to always reinvent herself and make a mark on both music and fashion, but for the first time in my life, I actually screamed at the TV and asked “Why? Why are you doing this to yourself?”

Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean; then we can all feel weird about it together.
