On stage Madonna is no stranger to flashing the flesh and flaunting her figure.

But off stage the 54-year-old singer is a little more reserved and conservative when it comes to her style.

The Give It 2 Me singer was seen completely covered up in a bright purple tracksuit as she headed back to her hotel following a night out in New York.

Her dressed down ensemble consisted off the loose-fitting sportswear, a flat-peaked baseball cap, a grey scarf and a pair of flip flops, giving her a rather scruffy appearance.

Madonna was seen with her toyboy boyfriend Brahim Zaibat, 25, and her two youngest children Mercy, six, and David, seven.

Madonna's Brahim appeared to be a little camera shy and instead of wearing his beanie hat on his head he simply held it up to his face to hide under it.

David also seemed a little bashful and had a baseball cap pulled down over his face.

Mercy looked adorable with a cream headband in her hair, matching her top.

The little girl flashed a big smile as she followed her family home.

Madonna might well be trying to keep a
low profile after she sparked controversy by calling President Barack
Obama a 'black muslim' during a concert on Monday.

Yesterday the pop singer said she was being deliberately 'ironic on stage' when she made the comment.

A video clip posted on YouTube by
audience members at the Verizon Center in downtown Washington captured
the 54-year-old singer delivering a rousing, profanity-laced political
speech about freedom during her show on Monday.

'Now, it's so amazing and incredible
to think that we have an African-American in the White House … we have
a black Muslim in the White House … it means there is hope in this
country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man.'

Obama, who is campaigning to be re-elected on November 6, is widely known to be a practicing Christian.

After her comments made headlines Madonna issued a statement saying her reference to Obama's religion was facetious.

'I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I
know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this
country think he is. And what if he were'

'The point I was making is that a
good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what
religion Obama is – nor should anyone else in America.'
