Can you blame us for expecting a little more shade from the Queen of Pop? When Madonna appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show yesterday (October 29), a lot of ground was covered, in which Madge came across as thoughtful, astute and charming. But when the conversation turned to her contemporaries, it seemed reasonable to expect at least a little bit of thinly veiled trash-talk — and yet, Madonna played it very tame.
When asked about Britney Spears, Madonna responded, “Good kisser,” to the delight of the audience — and despite a very long pause when discussing Lady Gaga, Madonna’s ultimate assessment was very diplomatic. But it’s not until the final moments that Madonna reveals what Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, and Elton John have in common. Watch up top.
