She is often lambasted for lip-syncing in her performances.
And while Madonna has been dancing up a storm on stage during her MDNA tour, it appears that she has also been strenuously straining her vocal chords.
So much so that the 53-year-old singer revealed some massive bulging veins around her neck as she took to the stage in Berlin this evening.

The blonde star was also sweating profusely as she strummed away on her guitar.

This time around the designer Jean
Paul Gaultier reinvented the bra and corset, layering it over a suit
just as he did 22 years ago albeit with a few key alterations.
told WWD earlier this year: 'We played with the ideas of a suit and a
corset. But the corset is now like a cage. What I have done this time is
a nod to the conical bra corset of the Blond Ambition tour but
reinterpreted in 3-D, in patent leather on the outside with metallic
leather on the inside. It's all about masculine and feminine, Madonna
and Jean Paul Gaultier classics reinterpreted for 2012.'
MDNA tour wardrobe, including costumes for Madonna, her 22 dancers,
backing singers and band, was overseen by long-time stylist and costume
designer Arianne Phillips, who has styled her last four world tours.
Other designers lucky enough to dress the Material Girl and her troupe were Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang, Dolce & Gabbana, Fausto Puglisi and J Brand.
MDNA is scheduled to travel from Europe to the Americas before finishing in Australia in early 2013, where she has not performed in more than 20 years.
