Remember back in December when Madonna filmed her music video for her single Give Me All Your Luvin’ (featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.) and we heard audio of Maddy and crew sining Happy Birthday on the set to Nicki because it was her birthday? Well, at the time we heard that Madonna gave Nicki a big ol’ kiss as well. Today, all these weeks later, we finally get to see video of that “mythical” kiss. Click below to watch video of Madonna kissing Nicki Minaj for her birthday.
Back in 2003, Madonna’s liplock at the MTV Music Awards with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera made international headlines and became perhaps the most iconic VMA moment of all time. So this past December, when word got out that Madonna had gotten smoochy with her latest same-sex duet partner, Nicki Minaj, another media firestorm unsurprisingly ensued.
HOLD UP … I don’t recall this “media firestorm” that is referenced here. I don’t think a single person even batted an eyelash when news of this kiss came out. It may have been controversial back in 2003 when Madonna and Britney kissed on the VMAs but this Nicki kiss wasn’t even a blip on anyone’s radar.
It all started with a (heavily RT’d) tweet from Nicki herself, right after the shoot for Madonna and Nicki’s video with M.I.A., “Gimme All Your Luvin’.” Nikki tweeted: “OH MY f’ingggg Gahhhh!!!!! MADONNA jus kissed me!!!!! On the lips!!!!!!! It felt sooooo good. Soooo soft!!!! *passes out* aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!” Madonna later dished about the incident to Anderson Cooper, explaining, “It was her birthday and it was actually the end of one of those long days of shooting, and we were all giving a birthday toast to her. After a few sips of champagne, I kissed her!” Footage of the Madonna/Minaj kiss didn’t make the cut of the official “Gimme All Your Luvin’” video, much to fans’ chagrin…but now, just in time to celebrate the release of Madonna’s 12th studio album, MDNA, the never-before-seen clip of Nicki’s birthday celebration with Madge has been made available … n the fly-on-the-wall footage, a cupcake-bearing Madonna serenades and smooches a delighted Nicki, while M.I.A. and a cast of video cheerleaders and boy-toy footballers cheer them on. Nicki is heard gushing, “I have to thank the queen, Madonna, for giving me this opportunity. I love her so much, and she’s fierce, and she didn’t have to do this for me and M.I.A….Did you get the kiss with Madonna on camera?”
All this talk of this “mythical” kiss is merely PR’s attempt to make something out of nothing to promote the release of Madonna‘s new album M.D.N.A. today. The album is fantastic, it doesn’t need silly blown out of proportion stories like this. Another reason for this report by Yahoo! is that they are giving away tickets to see Madonna on tour.
