Madonna Slams DaBaby for His 'Hateful' and Misinformed Remarks About HIV: 'Know Your Facts'

Madonna has a "message" for DaBaby following his homophobic comments about HIV.

The "Papa Don't Preach" singer, 62, slammed the misinformation that DaBaby spread about the AIDS and LGBTQ community on stage and during his performance at Rolling Loud earlier this week. DaBaby, 29, has since apologized for his "insensitive" rant.

"If you're going to make hateful remarks to the LGBTQ+ community about HIV/AIDS then know your facts," Madonna wrote alongside a video of DaBaby's comments.

She continued, "After decades of hard won scientific research— there are life saving medicines available to children born with HIV, to people who contract HIV through blood transfusions, dirty needles or exchange of bodily fluids. These new ARV's can keep a person with AIDS alive for the rest of their lives!!! AIDS is not transmitted by standing next to someone in a crowd."

"I want to put my cellphone lighter up and pray for your ignorance, No one dies of AIDS in 2 or 3 weeks anymore. Thank God 🙏" she added.

Madonna also addressed DaBaby's "sexist remarks about ladies [whose] p------ need to smell like water" during his speech, writing that those comments "only encourage more discrimination against women who fight daily against the oppression of living under the constraints of the Male Gaze."

"People like you are the reason we are still living in a world divided by fear," she concluded. "All Human beings should be treated with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, sexual preference or religious beliefs. AMEN."

Rosie O'Donnell Recalls Going to an Oscar Party with Madonna and Dennis Hopper: 'It Was So Wild'

Rosie O'Donnell's Oscars moment was one for the books.

The actress and comedian appeared on this week's episode of PEOPLE in the '90s podcast where she recalled attending Oscar parties with Madonna before their 1992 movie A League of Their Own came out.

"I would get out of her car with her, a limo, and everyone's going Madonna! Kathy Bates! Madonna! Kathy Bates!" O'Donnell, 59, said, remembering how people confused her for that year's Best Actress winner, Kathy Bates.

"We went to Spago and I sat next to Dennis Hopper," O'Donnell said. "And at the table was Jackie Collins' sister."

She continued, "Well, Dennis Hopper leaned over and said, 'I had sex with two women at this table. Start your guessing.' Oh my God, it happened that night. It was so wild."

Madonna’s 'Madame X' Concert Documentary Is Coming to Paramount+ / MTV

Madame X is ready for her close up.

A concert documentary filmed last year during the European leg of Madonna’s Madame X Tour is coming to Paramount+.

Directed by Ricardo Gomes and SKNX, MADAME X will exclusively stream on Paramount+ from Friday, Oct. 8 for subscribers in North America, Latin America, Australia, and the Nordics. Fans outside of those territories can tune in on MTV.

“Sharing my vision with global audiences has been profoundly meaningful to me,” the Queen of Pop said in a statement issued early Thursday (July 15).

"The opportunity to bring its message and the incandescent artistry of all involved to an even wider audience comes at a time when music is so deeply needed to remind us of the sacred bond of our shared humanity."

Created by MTV Entertainment Studios, the doc captures all the highlights from Madonna’s January 2020 stop in Lisbon, part of a trans-Atlantic Madame X jaunt in support of her Billboard 200 chart leader of the same time.

Madonna has a strong connection with the capital of Portugal. She moved there for her son’s soccer aspirations, and was inspired by the music she was exposed to there: Fado, morna, salsa and more.

“Madonna is undoubtedly the world’s biggest superstar, never ceasing to push boundaries and shape the pop culture landscape,” said Bruce Gillmer, chief content officer, Music, Paramount+ and President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events, ViacomCBS.

The pop veteran and MTV together “have an incredibly storied history and we are thrilled to continue to amplify our partnership globally,” he continued.

The seven-time Grammy Award-winner sent her followers into a frenzy last week when she teased the doc and revealed it would arrive this October on Paramount+.

Madonna Promises To Get Britney Spears‘Out Of Jail’ As She Breaks Silence OnConservatorship

Madonna condemned Britney Spears’ conservatorship in a fiery new statement.

Madonna has voiced her support for Britney Spears amid her conservatorship battle. The “Like a Prayer” singer, 62, shared an Instagram Story on July 8 and lambasted the legal arrangement, calling it a “violation of human rights.” Madonna shared the message against the backdrop of a throwback photo of herself in a bedazzled Britney t-shirt and pink fuzzy boa.

“Give this woman her life back. Slavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries.” The singer added, “This is a violation of human rights! Britney we coming to get you out of jail!”

The support is mutual: the duo shared an infamous moment with fellow pop star Christina Aguilera in the early aughts. On stage at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, the trio shared a passionate kiss during a performance. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in 2011, Britney looked back at the moment and gushed about the star. “I actually saw [Madonna] a couple of weeks ago at a party,” she said. “I guess she’s really taught me to stay true to myself. That seems like a simple thing to say, but she taught me through action, not just by saying it. There are so many people around you that have opinions, but you just have to listen to your instincts.”

Madonna’s comments come after Britney addressed a judge for the first time in June, pleading to be freed from the 13-year conservatorship and calling the arrangement “abusive.” The pop star delivered a harrowing testimony about how the conservatorship has stripped her of all autonomy. Britney also called for the removal of her father Jamie as co-conservator, but he still remains in the role. Meanwhile, Bessemer Trust, the financial firm that splits conservator duties with Jamie, has filed documents to resign from the conservatorship, citing Britney’s latest court testimonial. Per NPR, the next court hearing for the conservatorship will be July 14; it will center on Bessemer Trust’s request to withdraw from the conservatorship.

Madonna joins a chorus of other celebrities who have rallied behind Britney. Mariah Carey, Brandy, Justin Timberlake, and Miley Cyrus have also expressed their support.

Madonna's gutsy 'True Blue' album turned her into a 'serious' star, says producer Patrick Leonard

At only 27 years old, Madonna released one of the world’s biggest-selling albums of 1986.

The nine songs on “True Blue,” which celebrates its 35th anniversary June 30, signified her musical maturity, from the somber balladry of “Live to Tell” to the Latin syncopation embedded in “La Isla Bonita.”

Produced by Madonna, Patrick Leonard and Stephen Bray, the album spawned five hit singles and sold more than seven million copies in the U.S. and an estimated 25 million worldwide.

The pressure of following the hit parade of “Lucky Star,” “Like a Virgin,” “Material Girl” and other fizzy dancefloor dazzlers might have daunted some artists as they embarked on their third release. But, true to her nature, Madonna zigged when most would have zagged. Madonna was also creatively inspired by then-husband Sean Penn (she dedicated the album to him), and the album’s first single, “Live to Tell,” landed in his 1986 crime drama, “At Close Range.”

“The music got more serious, so I think she got taken more seriously,” Leonard, who also co-wrote five of the album’s songs, told USA TODAY. “It was different, and to her credit, she took some chances that I don’t know most people would have. There were things in there that weren’t normal in pop music at the time.”

Leonard was 30 at the time “True Blue” was recorded, and previously served as the music director for Madonna’s “The Virgin Tour” in 1985. But their collaboration at a backyard barbecue on “Love Makes the World Go Round,” which would debut later that year at Live Aid before landing on “True Blue,” marked their first songwriting pairing.

Two of the album’s five singles – the string-laden teen pregnancy drama “Papa Don’t Preach” and sweet “True Blue” – were produced by Bray, who also co-wrote “Where’s The Party,” “Jimmy Jimmy” and the title track. Leonard said he and Bray would assist each other, but the two producers primarily “kept to our own little worlds.”

But even with different captains, the songs shared a common throughline.

“There’s a chemical thing that contributes to that ‘thing’ and why those records are what they are,” Leonard said. “They were relatively spontaneous for the most part. As legend has it, most of those vocals are the only time Madonna sang (the songs in the studio) and I can attest to that. It helped that neither she nor I are second guessers. Period.”

Lil Nas X defends Madonna amid fierce backlash over ‘petty’ response to award show kiss

Lil Nas X has defended Madonna after she was slammed for comparing his already-iconic awards show kiss to her own.

Lil Nas X shared a steamy kiss with a dancer during his Egyptian-themed performance of “Montero (Call Me By Your Name) at the BET Awards 2021 on Sunday (27 June).

Following the performance, Madonna took to Instagram to post a side-by-side image comparing his kiss to her own with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the MTV VMAs in 2003. She captioned the story: “#DidItFirst.”

Mtv

Madonna was heavily criticised for attempting to make the moment about herself, and for comparing her queer-baiting performance to a gay artist defiantly celebrating his sexuality in an industry that has been less-than-welcoming to LGBT+ folk.

Some referenced how her song “Vogue” lifted from Black and Latinx ballroom culture, “whitewashing” it in the process.

Amid fan backlash, Lil Nas X clarified that he and Madonna “are friends” and that it was “just a joke”.

After all, Madonna and Lil Nas X are known to be friends. They once shared beers and banter before duetting “Old Town Road” together during Madonna’s Madame X tour.

Other users sought to defend the pop megastar, arguing that the Instagram story was a joke while re-training focus back to Madonna’s decades-long contributions to LGBT+ advocacy.

Madonna Premieres ‘No Fear, Courage, Resist’ at Times Square for Pride Weekend

There’s no brighter tourist destination than Times Square, and no bigger pop star than Madonna.

So it made sense for the Queen of Pop to use the famous Manhattan intersection on Thursday night (June 24) to premiere her “No fear, Courage, Resist” video.

The Pride Weekend-themed video was filmed with Ricardo Gomes, and it flashed up on the big screens of Times Square for the world to see.

The Queen of Pop teased the big show. “Tonight is not just a party to kick off Pride Weekend,” she wrote on Instagram. At 10pm and midnight in Times Square, she continued, “you can watch a special video made by ME! Don’t miss it! Let’s POP the cheery on Pride with a bang."

The pop legend is also auctioning a selection of sexy Polaroids, proceeds from which benefit The Ali Forney Center, Haus of Us, and The Door, three NYC-based organizations dedicated to creating safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ youth.

Madonna accused of braiding her hair while watching Broadway show: ‘Have some manners!’

Madonna allegedly left Natasha Richardson with ‘steam coming out of her ears’ after braiding her hair while watching a Broadway musical.

Actor John Benjamin Hickey has claimed that the pop icon was in the audience for a production of Cabaret in 1998, which he starred in alongside Richardson and Alan Cumming.

“One night in the audience Madonna was there, and we were all so excited that she was there,” Hickey told US talk show Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen. “There were lights on the audience, and Madonna proceeded to sit and braid her hair through the entire performance.”

He continued: “I didn’t really give a s***, I didn’t care one way or the other. [But] our leading lady Natasha Richardson came backstage with steam coming out of her ears. ‘How dare she?’”

“She was absolutely right,” Hickey added. “If you’re gonna come to the theatre, don’t sit and braid your hair, have some manners, especially if you know all eyes are on you.”

Earlier this year, while appearing on the Talk Art podcast, Cumming claimed that he reminded Madonna of the incident after they became friends.

“She talked about coming to see me in Cabaret and I said, ‘I remember you were braiding your hair’,” Cumming said. “She was like, ‘Was I? That’s incredibly rude.’ And I went, ‘Yes, it was rude.’”

Madonna announces much-anticipated Madame X Tour concert film will premiere in October

Madonna has been teasing fans with updates about a film based on her Madame X Tour in recent months.

And on Saturday, the legendary pop superstar took to Instagram to announce that the documentary will be released in the fall, writing: 'Madame X coming in October!!!' alongside a photo of herself on stage during the tour's 75-date run.

The trek - consisting of dates in the United States, England, France, and Portugal - was not without drama behind-the-scenes, which included several show cancellations due to Madonna's recurring knee injury and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film is slated to drop on Netflix and features extensive footage from the tour and behind-the-scenes clips of the singer-songwriter in all her glory as her Madame X alter ego.

Madonna screened the documentary concert film to 12 people in a 500 seat theatre this past April and gushed that she 'cant wait to show it to the world!!!'

Inside the story of Keith Haring’s fridge, at auction with Madonna’s ‘tag’

This icebox is worth some cold, hard cash.

On Wednesday, Guernsey’s will auction off a refrigerator door that belonged to Keith Haring. The object - from the artist’s 1980s apartment at 325 Broome St. downtown - features more than 80 signatures and “tags,” including those believed to be by Madonna and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Even more amazing, the artifact nearly perished before the current owner - who lived in Haring’s old unit in the early 1990s - grabbed it from a back alley before a garbage crew could take it away.

“It’s a one in a million kind of thing,” Guernsey’s president Arlan Ettinger told The Post. (Ettinger said that the piece is being sold “without minimum reserve,” meaning it will go for whatever the highest bid is.)

Haring often had raucous get-togethers at his Soho apartment, and his artistic guests left their marks on every surface of his home, from the brightly painted walls to the front door to his white icebox.

“We tagged everything,” artist Cy Adams told The Post, recalling the crowded, celeb-filled parties Haring would throw at his apartment. “When you’re a young graffiti artist, you don’t even think twice about it.”

Keith-haring-3

Haring moved out of the Broome Street apartment shortly before he died of AIDS in 1990. That’s when the fridge’s current owner, an artist who now lives in San Francisco and wished to remain anonymous, moved in.

She answered found a listing looking for a roommate to share a railroad apartment in Soho for $250 a month. “I was immediately struck by the beautiful light in the front of the flat and the amazing bathroom … [and] the funky kitchen with the fridge covered in graffiti,” the woman told The Post.

When her soon-to-be roommate informed her that the apartment had once belonged to Haring, “I was stunned,” she said. After she moved in, she and her friends would examine it for names they recognizes. When the appliance stopped working, she ran out to retrieve the door after the man who delivered a new one threw it away.

Madonna pays tribute to Nick Kamen

Madonna has paid tribute to Nick Kamen, the model, actor and singer whose biggest hit was co-written by the star.

Kamen caught the eye in a 1985 Levi's jeans advert - baring his chest in a launderette - and the queen of pop invited him in on a track the following year. He died this week aged 59.

"Heartbreaking to know you are gone," the superstar posted online.

The pair had a top five hit with Each Time You Break My Heart, which featured Madonna on backing vocals.

"You were always such a kind, sweet human and you suffered too much," she added.

"Hope you are happier wherever you are Nick Kamen."

Kamen - real name Ivor Neville Kamen - rose to fame in the Levi's commercial, which showed him stripping down to his boxer shorts in a launderette as several women looked on.

The advert, soundtracked by Marvin Gaye's I Heard It Through The Grapevine, helped to boost the company's denim sales and made him a sex symbol in the process.

It also caught the attention of Madonna, who told the BBC at the time she had been taken by Kamen's "charisma" and "beautiful voice".

She then contacted Kamen and asked him to record Each Time You Break My Heart - a synth-pop track left over from her third album True Blue.

Madonna says gun control should be the ‘new vaccination’

Madonna has declared gun control the “new vaccination”, arguing that regulation would save lives.

The singer shared a video of herself erecting fly-posters featuring messages including “Wake up America” and “Gun control now”.

The Instagram clip showed Madonna wearing a Pussy Riot-style blue balaclava while shouting “wake up motherfuckers!” and demanding somebody hand her the glue. It was soundtracked by her 2019 song God Control, which is about mass shootings.

The video was captioned: “There’s a new Vaccination! It’s called GUN CONTROL! Should be mandatory. It will SAVE lives!”

Madonna urged fans to “join us next week”. She directed them to the campaign group Everytown For Gun Safety, which describes itself as “a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities”.

Her intervention comes after 13-year-old Adam Toledo was shot dead by police in Chicago after appearing to drop a handgun and raise his hands, and Daunte Wright, 20, was fatally shot by police during a traffic stop.

In a separate post, in which she poses in front of the posters, she wrote: “Adam Toledo was 13 years old, Daunte Wright was 20.

“The officers who killed them are only being charged with manslaughter. This is insanity. Horrific. And yet it has become normalised in our society. Yes – people kill people, not guns. But the vast majority of people are not enlightened and guns are too easy to own.

“If they were outlawed then no one would feel the need to own a gun to protect themselves from those who have guns. As for police killing innocent children: shooting and suffocating and brutalising innocent people ... They should go immediately to jail for the rest of there [sic] lives. No trial, no corrupt justice system.”

The trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is under way over the death of George Floyd, who was unarmed when he died after the officer kept a knee on his neck for nine minutes.

Last year Madonna was censured by Instagram after sharing a video which claimed a vaccine for Covid-19 had already been found, but was being hidden to “let the rich get richer”.

Instagram blurred out the video with a caption saying: “False Information”.

The video was later deleted from Madonna’s Instagram page, but not before fans protested at her decision to share the post.

Among them was the pop star Annie Lennox, who commented: “This is utter madness!!! I can’t believe that you are endorsing this dangerous quackery.”

Madonna Drops $19.3 Million on The Weeknd's Hidden Hills Estate

The OG Material Girl buys once again in the L.A. area, purchasing a 12,547-square-foot, nine-bedroom house on nearly 3 acres built in 2017.

She’s back! After a dozen years hopping around between New York City, the Hamptons and Lisbon, Portugal, Madonna has decided to set down some multimillion-dollar roots in Los Angeles.

Though she’s recently been on the East Coast, where she celebrated Easter in the Hamptons, the shape-shifting pop star returned to the City of Angels last year amid the Covid-19 quarantines, and while in town as been holed up in a lavish rented estate in the Coldwater Canyon area of Beverly Hills. Her decision to stay a while just might have something to do with the the biopic about her life that she's slated to direct and that she has co-written with Diablo Cody.

The mononymous 'Like A Virgin' singer, now 62, social media savvy and still pushing sociocultural buttons, turning out fashion trends and making hit records - her 14th studio album, 'Madame X,' released in 2019, was her ninth to debut at the top of the Billboard 200, looked far and wide for a suitable mansion to call home. In the end she eschewed her former real estate stomping grounds of Beverly Hills and the Hollywood Hills, where she’s owned homes in decades past, and instead headed for the suburbs, dropping $19.3 million on The Weeknd’s mansion in guard-gated and celeb-filled Hidden Hills.

The Weeknd purchased the then brand-new mansion almost four years ago for $18.2 million, and initially put it on the market amid piles of publicity with a much-too-optimistic ask of not quite $25 million. The price eventually dipped to almost $22 million before Madge came along and bargained another $2.7 million off the price.

With nine bedrooms and nine full and two half bathrooms spread over about 12,500 square feet between the seven-bedroom main house and two-bedroom guest house, there’s plenty of room for the gap-toothed OG Material Girl, who rolls deep with four of her six children along with a retinue of assistants, nannies and security personnel.

The Weeknd was represented by Angel Salvador at The Agency while Madonna was represented in the deal by Trevor Wright at The Beverly Hills Estates.

Diablo Cody didn't 'quit' Madonna biopic despite reports: studio source

Reports swirled earlier this week that Diablo Cody had shown Madonna's self-directed biopic the power of goodbye, but EW can confirm that the pair turned in a finished, final draft of the script they spent months working on throughout 2020.

A studio source at Universal, where the film is gestating, tells EW that reports of the Oscar-winning Juno screenwriter's 'departure' from the movie have been exaggerated, and that Cody simply completed her work and moved on to her next project.

Cody and Madonna recently delivered a completed draft of the film to the studio, which is looking at developing the current version ahead of production. It's unclear whether additional work will be done on the version the women turned in, as big-budget productions normally go through rewrites, treatments, and polishing before shooting begins.

The Sun first reported news of Cody's alleged exit, indicating difficulties between the two reportedly leading to Cody's decision to walk away. Representatives for Cody and Madonna didn't respond to EW's requests for comment.

After months of teasing a secret project with Cody throughout 2020, Madonna announced in September that they had indeed been working on a biopic about her life that she would direct herself, and further revealed extensive plot details that the writer-director pair had included so far in the unfinished draft's first 107 pages.

Elsewhere, Cody is working in Atlanta to bring the CW's live-action Powerpuff Girls adaptation to life as the project's executive producer and writer. Chloe Bennet (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Dove Cameron (Descendants), and Yana Perrault (Jagged Little Pill) are set to star in the prospective series.

A release date for the currently untitled Madonna biopic has yet to be announced.

Madonna all for ‘self-reflecting’ in bed while wearing nothing but lingerie and Snoop Dogg is a fan

Madonna sent fans into a spin on Instagram as she indulged in a little self-reflection on Sunday. The music icon, 62, told fans she was taking some me time, but gave her Instagram followers a lot more than they bargained for with her outfit choice for her meditation session. Madonna shared a series of NSFW selfies that saw her kicking back in just her lingerie and thigh-high stockings. Rocking a Baker Boy cap with a metal chain across it, the Like A Prayer hit-maker wasn’t afraid to bare (almost) all and seemed to win a fan in none other than Snoop Dogg.

The rapper couldn’t get enough of Madonna’s saucy selfies and commented on her post: ‘I need u 💖💖. Hit. Guy. 🎥💕💃🏽💨💨.’ Snoop wasn’t the only one thirsting over the queen of pop, as a slew of celebrities and fans were seen showering Madonna with compliments.

Game Of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie and US television host Kelly Ripa had the same idea, as they commented with a string of fire emojis, while RuPaul’s Drag Race UK finalist Bimini Bon Boulash wrote: ‘YESSSSS MUMMA.’

Madonna suggest Madame X tour doc should go on OnlyFans

Madonna has suggested her 'Madame X' documentary could end up on OnlyFans.

The 62-year-old singer was believed to have signed a deal with Netflix to broadcast the film which will feature extensive footage from her 75-date 2019/2020 run.

It will also include behind-the-scenes clips of Madonna in action, and is set to detail the battles she had with hip and knee injuries, which forced her to cancel several of her tour dates.

However, the 'Like a Virgin' hitmaker has suggested it might be too X-rated for some platforms and admitted she would be thrilled if it did end up on the adult site.

She told fans on Instagram: 'You should definitely have had that woman get her t*** out in 'Like A Prayer'.'

'I mean if nobody wants to buy this show and we end up on a porn site, it would be good.'

'OnlyFans - do they have a format to show a whole show? All right, well that’s something to think about.'

'It could make people feel a little bit uncomfortable because art is art, here to disturb the peace.'

Last month, a source claimed: 'Madonna quite literally put blood, sweat and tears into the 'Madame X' tour and she wants this documentary to show it off for the spectacle that it was.'

'She’s never been the type to fade into the background, so viewers will definitely get to witness her dry sense of humour.'

'She has spent weeks watching previews and helping to edit the footage at home in the US and is very hands- on with it.'

The upcoming film will come 30 years after her ground-breaking documentary ‘Truth Or Dare’, which chronicled her life during her ‘Blond Ambition’ tour.

Meanwhile, Madonna is also working on a movie about her life, which she is directing and co-writing with Diablo Cody.

Madonna said: 'I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer - a human being, trying to make her way in this world. The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.'

Rupert Everett finally explains why he dubbed Madonna ‘an old whiny barmaid’ in memoir

Rupert Everett has explained why he dubbed Madonna “an old whiny barmaid” in one of his memoirs.

The My Best Friend’s Wedding actor was formerly good friends with Madonna, having worked with her on the romantic comedy The Next Best Thing in 2000. He also performed background vocals on her cover version of Don McLean’s “American Pie”.

In Everett’s 2006 memoir Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, he referred to Madonna in what appeared to be slightly disparaging terms, which he has now denied during an appearance on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

Asked by Morgan what he called Madonna in his book, Everett replied: “A screechy barmaid?”

“An old whiny barmaid,” corrected Morgan. “You didn’t finish there … You called her a curious little thing, Satan, a she-man. And you appear surprised that it put a little [cloud] over your relationship.”

Everett explained that he didn’t intend the comment to be offensive.

“The whiny old barmaid was meant to be a compliment,” he said, adding that he remembered the star speaking in a specific and slightly whiny voice when she was younger. “She really got guys like that. And she was really charming. That wasn’t meant to be rude actually … Are you sure I put ‘old’?”

How Rita Ora Was Literally Floored by Meeting Madonna

Even celebs get starstruck from time to time.

During an interview with The Tonight Show, Rita Ora shared her experience meeting Madonna for the first time, which she called "very awkward, but also very unbelievable."

"She really just made me find my light," the "Girls" singer told host Jimmy Fallon. "And doing that, we had to kneel on the floor. And I thought it was ‘Like A Prayer' in real life that was happening to me."

If you're confused, not to fret - Ora offered a bit more context. As she recalled, "I had to go and breathe in the bathroom before I actually did meet her. I mean, this was earlier in my career. And I was doing a campaign for her, a clothing line… then she, you know, came to meet me, and I loved it and I just couldn't breathe."

The 30-year-old star remembered the iconic singer exclaiming, "'This is not my light! Let's get down!'" and a confused Rita did what she was told without hesitation.

"I said, ‘Whatever she says,'" Ora noted, "'we're going to do.'" Fallon was in agreement. "I mean, well, she's Madonna," he added. "She's the one and only, man."

Madonna fans joke she should be ‘impeached’ after Donald Trump’s lawyers use video of her in trial

Donald Trump’s lawyers have been mocked for using videos of Johnny Depp and Madonna at his impeachment trial

The former president is currently on trial for inciting a riot among protesters in Washington DC, who stormed the US Capitol on January 6. If he’s convicted, he could by voted by the Senate to be ineligible to run for office again in future.

During the trial, Trump’s lawyer Michael Van der Veen showed videos of the actor and musician, aiming to prove that Democrats have used the same kind of provocative language that the former president used ahead of the January 6 attack, according to Deadline.

The first clip was of Madonna, when she was at a Women’s March in 2017. She said: ‘Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.’ Meanwhile, a video of Depp was also shown, from an appearance at Glastonbury.

Van der Veen said afterwards: ‘I did not show you their robust speech to excuse or balance out the speech of my client, for I need not. ‘I showed you the video because in this political forum, all robust speech should be protected and it should be protected evenly.’

However, not everyone is convinced by the use of the videos in the trial, pointing out that Madonna and Depp were never elected. ‘Ok, they’ve finally convinced me. Johnny Depp and Madonna should be removed from office,’ one Twitter user joked. Another said: ‘IMPEACH MADONNA!’ while one more added: ‘Just spitballing here… maybe the President of the United States’ words should be held to a higher standard than Madonna?’
