Poor Madonna. You accidentally flash your underpants on telly, and people are still bringing it up 28 years later. It’s like the time we forgot to take our gym kit to school and had to run around in our vest and pants *shudder*
The long-reigning Queen of Pop appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this week (scroll down for the video), and all the pesky host wanted to talk about was Madonna’s 1984 performance of 'Like A Virgin' at the Video Music Awards, when a little bit of writhing around on the stage led to a lot of knicker action. Awkward.
But Madge set the record straight; it was an accident, people. You see, her shoe fell off when she was climbing down a giant wedding cake, and she thought she’d better try and gloss over the slip-up with a little interpretive dance. And the rest is headline-grabbing history.
But that’s all behind her now (see what we did there?). Her Madgesty is a big-time director and is set to perform her new single, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, from new album M.D.N.A., at the Super Bowl this Sunday, when that dreamy David Beckham Bodywear ad is also showing. Sporting events aren’t usually on our radar, but this seals the deal: we’re making an exception and will actually watch football! Or baseball...whatever it is they play during the Super Bowl. We might even wear sequinned sports jerseys and wave tiny flags with Madonna’s forever-young face on them in eager anticipation. We wonder what pants she’ll be wearing…
