Madonna Met Kim Kardashian When She Was a Little Girl

Kim Kardashian made headlines earlier this month when she posted a picture of herself with pop icon Madonna at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute Gala in New York City. She captioned the shot, 'When we first MET Madonna' - but as it turns out, it wasn't the stars' first meeting after all.
As the Material Girl revealed to Extra's Jerry Penacoli, the two were actually introduced a long time ago, before Kardashian was famous in her own right. 'I met her years and years ago when she was a little girl, believe it or not,' Madonna, 54, told Penacoli after accepting the Top Touring Artist prize at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 19.
'She told me she was a huge fan of mine, and it was during the time I was wearing all of the rubber bracelets on my arms,' she continued. (The singer famously sported an armful of black rubber bangles in the mid-1980s.) 'I took off all of the bracelets and gave them to her, and then I completely forgot about it. She reminded me when I saw her the other night. Now she's a pregnant lady!'
Of course, that's not the only thing that's changed in the last couple of decades. Though Madonna can still rock a bodysuit and thigh-high tights onstage (as she did at the Billboard Awards), her offstage life now includes four kids: Lourdes, 16, Rocco, 12, David Banda, 8, and Mercy James, also 8.
'I try to find the right balance between being there for them and guiding them, and also being an artist,' she told Extra of how she manages both fame and family. 'I'm trying to find enough time in the day to do those jobs well.'
'I try to be very clear with them. This is my persona for work,' she added. 'What we aspire to do is to work and to be good people. If you don't have those two things, fame is nothing, so I try to drill that into their heads.'
