Taylor Swift and Madonna Own the iHeartRadio Awards

In a night that belonged to Taylor Swift, she hit her highest note at Sunday's iHeartRadio Awards alongside new BFF Madonna. Swift made a surprise appearance to provide guitar accompaniment for Madonna's performance of 'Ghosttown,' the new single from Rebel Heart and the awards show's best performance.

The alluring, post-apocalyptic song could well shape up to be a hit for Madonna, and she and Swift shared the stage with the ease of kindred spirits. Later in the night, Madonna presented Swift with the song of the year award for 'Shake It Off,' and Swift thanked 'Madonna for being Madonna.'

Outtakes From Her 25 Things You Don't Know About Me

Nothing's better than more, more, more! Leave it to Madonna to exceed Us Weekly's request for 25 Things You Don't Me. Speaking with Us' Entertainment Director Ian Drew recently, the pop legend, 56, sounded off on everything from her goal to meet President Obama (and Drake!), her disdain for fur bikinis, escargot, and her home state of Michigan in the much talked-about, published version of '25 Things.'

But that's not all she had to say. In these outtakes from our exclusive chat with the legendary 'Ghosttown' singer, Madonna muses on her family, filming Evita, the pitfalls of fame and who she might owe an apology to, among other topics. Read on!

US WEEKLY: In the spirit of rebel hearts, what was your ultimate 'rebel' moment?
MADONNA: The ultimate moment where I most felt like a rebel was in St. Petersburg, Russia [in 2012 during the MDNA Tour] when I was told they were going to arrest anyone who was openly or obviously gay and they came to my shows and I spoke out against the government. Eighty-seven people were arrested and I was fined like $1 million. They dropped the lawsuit, though. When I stood up for Pussy Riot was around the same time, but there have been a lot of those moments. I also think about when I was in Toronto and they said if I simulated masturbation during one of my shows [during the Blonde Ambition Tour in 1990] they would have me arrested and I was like, ‘F--k you! I’m doing it anyway. So arrest me.’ They didn’t in the end. Lots of those. Then there’s the Vatican when they said they would have me...you know, whatever! It goes on and on....

Ghosttown debuts on Billboard's Adult Contemporary

Madonna debuts at No. 21 on Adult Contemporary with 'Ghosttown,' the second single from her new album, Rebel Heart. First single 'Living for Love' reached No. 36 on Pop Songs, aided by concentrated plays on iHeartMedia-owned stations; spins on certain AC stations in the chain likewise spur the start of 'Ghosttown.' (It bubbles under Adult Pop Songs, also thanks to iHeartMedia plays in that format).

The bow of 'Ghosttown' ends Madonna’s longest break from charting on AC: she last reached the list with 'Jump,' which hit No. 21 in January 2007. She makes her 36th visit to the tally. Since her first week on the chart in June 1984 (with 'Borderline'), only Elton John (43), Celine Dion (41) and Rod Stewart (40) have made more appearances.

Madonna Radio 1 move 'nothing personal'

Radio 1 boss Ben Cooper has insisted there was 'nothing personal' in the decision not to include Madonna's latest single on the station's playlist.

Fans of t he Material Girl singer, 56, who has repeatedly reinvented herself over the last 30 years, said the station snubbed her by not putting Living For Love on the playlist, which rates songs on musical merit and relevance to its listeners.

Mr Cooper said: "We do not ban artists. There's nothing personal about Madonna. I think it's just about the merit of the music that the artist is creating at the time.'

'We have one of the most democratic playlist committees in the world and it's worked for Madonna for the last 20 odd years but it just means that this current record, when it's a choice between that and say Wolf Alice or a new up-and-coming artist, then you say 'which is more relevant to a young audience?''

Living For Love was released ahead of schedule due to internet leaks and was the track she was performing at the Brits when she tumbled in front of millions of viewers after getting caught up in her cape.

Sir Paul McCartney, who at 72 is 16 years older than Madonna, has been on the playlist recently and presenter Annie Nightingale, 74, is significantly older than Madonna. She is on air every Tuesday between 1am and 4am.
