Madonna’s surprise NYC Pride show: ‘Are you coming b–ches?’

She’s ready to express herself again.

Madonna is set to perform a surprise show in Hell’s Kitchen on Thursday night to kick off Pride 2022 weekend in New York City.

The gay icon, 63, will appear alongside several drag queens at Terminal 5 as part of an event titled “WoW, Finally Enough Love.”

The hush-hush show, which has barely been advertised on social media, is being hosted by World of Women — an art collective dedicated to improving the visibility of female artists in the nonfungible token space.

Madonna — who recently launched her own controversial NFT collection which included a 3D model of her vagina — was only recently announced as a performer at the event, which is already sold out with zero mainstream promotion.

Reps for the iconic singer-songwriter did not immediately respond to requests for comment. However, several people who claimed to be attending the show told The Post the purchase of an NFT “ticket” — with cryptocurrency no less! — was required to gain entry to the exclusive event.

“Are you coming to see mother and her children Thursday night, bitches?” the “Papa Don’t Preach” songstress asked, adding several Pride flag emojis to her post.

According to local outlet W42ST, “Rupaul’s Drag Race” star Violet Chachki is also slated to appear at the event.

The Material Girl teased her Pride performance on Instagram without explicitly revealing where she would be appearing.

Madonna is seen onstage during Pride in 2019. The singer has performed several surprise Pride shows in the past. She usually pops up at venues with little promotion.

It’s not the first time Madonna has taken to the stage in the Big Apple to put on a surprise show for Pride.

Last year, the star wowed crowds at the Boom Boom Room in the Meatpacking District with an impromptu concert kicking off Pride weekend.

The “Like a Virgin” singer shocked in a see-through mesh top and a series of leather harnesses as she performed for an audience consisting largely of gay men.

Meanwhile, back in 2019, she closed out New York City’s WorldPride bonanza by appearing at the Pride Island event at Manhattan’s Pier 97.

World of Women first announced that Madonna would be performing at the Pride event on June 13, sharing the news on Twitter.

However, the tweet generated little publicity, with news of the pop queen’s impending Pride performance still under the radar.

Called "Mother of Creation," the NFTs include a 3D model of her vagina.
Madonna’s own NFT collaboration with Beeple, launched back in May, was titled “Mother of Creation” and generated global headlines.

Madonna appears interested in capitalizing on the NFT space, and previously collaborated with WoW by coming up with a special nonfungible token that featured a drawing of her gracing the cover of Billboard magazine.

Meanwhile, her own NFT collection, launched in May, was titled “Mother of Creation” and generated global headlines thanks to the X-rated graphics that showed her fully nude and giving birth to butterflies, insects and trees.
