(Newser) – Two mega-famous singers, two concerts abroad, two mishaps—one accidental, one not so much. Concertgoers in Istanbul got a peek at Madonna's right breast on Thursday. And no, that wasn't the accidental mishap. The singer, who we will remind you is 53, "suggestively tugged" at her bra straps while singing "Human Nature," reports the New York Daily News. Then she just went for it. Oh, and she also turned her back to the crowd and stuck her hand down her pants.

The New York Post gleefully points out that this is the same Madonna who, not four months ago, proclaimed, "You don’t have to show your nipples to be interesting, and it doesn’t necessarily mean you're cutting-edge if you do." Meanwhile, Rolling Stone reports that Lady Gaga suffered a less pathetic, more literal blow while performing in Auckland last night. A dancer apparently bonked Gaga on the head with a pole as she sang "Judas." She powered through 16 more songs, with what her makeup artist told Twitter was indeed a concussion. Click to see a video of the hit, which admittedly looks pretty hard.
