Madge is at it again. The 55-year-old is pawing/prying her way back into the spotlight on the backs of young talent. Who can forget the 2003 “Like a Virgin” performance with Britney and Christina at the MTV Video Music Awards? The kiss with Brit is now one of those iconic pop culture stage moments. Tonight, she joins the 21-year-old
twerking Princess of Pop to perform for the premiere of
Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged. In a recent interview with
The New York Times,
Miley chatted openly about her “wisdom” crush. "Last night, I was talking about some Madonna performances, and I said, "At some point, everything becomes irrelevant. Like, no one even thinks about when she did "Like a Virgin" at the VMAs. That just becomes a standard, where it’s just like, "Oh, that’s her thing." So, I feel like now that I did the VMAs, that just kind of became a standard for me, and then any time I do anything else, they’re like, "Miley kept it tame tonight."’ We missed Miley’s antics at the
Grammys-yawn-a-thon this week. Will she and Madonna have everyone’s tongues wagging tomorrow?
