The year 2015 hasn’t even started settled in yet and Madonna has already made people torch her edges. On Friday, the Material Girl posted pictures on Instagram of the slain civil rights lead Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, Nelson Mandela, Bob Marley, and John Lennon all with black strings around their faces. The photographs mirrored the art work for her new album, Rebel Heart which is slated to drop March 10.
