Madonna Admits to Giving Nicki Minaj Birthday Kiss
Madonna is known for smooching her fellow pop starts -- except Lady Gaga -- on the lips. The Material Girl admitted during a chat with Anderson Cooper on his new 'Anderson' talk show that she did indeed suck face with 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' collaborator Nicki Minaj on Minaj's birthday last December.
Madge, seated on the couch dressed in black leather, rolled her eyes when Cooper brought up the kiss. Come on, Madge. You made headlines for wearing cone-tipped bras, swapping spit with Brit Brit (and the forgotten Xtina) at the VMAs one year and are known for your sexuality! Why act so irritated by such questions?
Madge revealed the context of the kiss, saying, "It was her birthday. So just fill in the blanks." Don't even open that can of worms, Madge! She continued, "It was the end of one of those long days... we were having a few sips of champagne and I kissed her, yes."
The singer also revealed why she chose Minaj and M.I.A. to contribute to 'MDNA' -- because she likes both of their styles. "I listen to Nicki Minaj, yes, I love her," Madge said. "I love both of them and wanted to collaborate with both of them. I am a big fan of their music. I like their independence and their spirit. They're cheeky and unique and they have individual voices and are not conventional pop stars."
Minaj and M.I.A. are set to perform 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' at the Super Bowl halftime with Madge this weekend. Check out the stage set up, which was being tested for functionality in Indianapolis. The word 'Vogue' can be seen on the floor panels. Madge will be getting her Vogue on this weekend in front of millions.
The full interview 'Anderson' airs tomorrow, Feb. 2, and Madge will appear at the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.
