Madonna has made a name of herself for pushing the envelope, but the Material Girl might have gone a bit too far with her latest Instagram post.

On Saturday, the 55-year-old singer came under fire after sharing a photo of her 13-yer-old son Rocco Ritchie, and two of his underage-looking friends, holding bottles of liquor as they posed for the camera.

"The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014," Madonna captioned the image.

The photo went on to receive national media coverage -- and over 1,200 comments in less than a day -- prompting Madonna herself to post another picture explaining that no alcohol was consumed during the making of the first image.

"No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor! Don't start the year off with judgement!" the "Like a Virgin" singer wrote in a second picture.

According to E! News, Madonna and son were in the Swiss Alps -- where the legal drinking age is a relatively low 16, but still way out of reach for Rocco -- when the photo was taken.
