She shared a series of images of herself enjoying her time in Paris with one close up snap drawing the attention of her followers due to her "gaunt" appearance.

As per ‘’, Madonna accessorised with a sparkling NY necklace as she caught the attention of her adoring followers who heaped praise on her for the look.

However, one fan wrote: "You look gaunt and tired all this touring is a lot for a 65-year-old woman." A second added: "I hope you are well mama, Queen of pop, be sure to rest on this journey of the world."

Madonna first arrived in Paris on Saturday, when she was also pictured wearing a very casual hoodie and sunglasses. Despite making efforts to not draw attention to herself, being surrounded by an entourage of bodyguards and personal security, Madonna was easily recognisable to fans.

The Queen of Pop’s Celebration Tour boasts a run of 78 shows throughout 15 countries, featuring 24 onstage performers (including four of Madonna’s children). It kicked off in London’s O2 Arena on October 15 and will finish in Mexico City in April next year.
