So everyone’s going crazy because Nicki Minaj tweeted that she locked lips with the Queen of Pop, Madonna, on the set of the music video for “Give Me All Your Love,” the buzzed about first single from Madonna’s forthcoming 12th studio album.
Apparently, kissing Her Madgesty is oh-so good … “OH MY f’ingggg Gahhhh!!!!! MADONNA jus kissed me!!!!! On the lips!!!!!!! It felt sooooo good. Soooo soft!!!! *passes out* aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!” Nicki tweet-screamed to all of her Brabz and Kenz late last night. She continued her swoon-athon with a series of tweets (which you can check out after the jump!) for over an hour after.
Which got us thinking about what a kiss from Madonna really means. Of course, any time Madge locks lips with another lady, our mind is immediately drawn back to the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, where the Queen and the Princesses – that’s Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, for those who don’t know (and how is life under that rock?) – performed a “Like A Virgin” medley that included one of the most famous lip locks of all time.
In its own weird way, a lot of people read the performance and kiss and Madonna’s way of anointing Spears as her pop successor. Sure, she kissed Christina too, but that’s not what anyone remembers. They remember that jaw-dropping lip lock with Spears, who was then at the height of her global fame and still a few years removed from the personal drama that nearly consumed her career (blessedly, she got the help she needed and is back and as good as ever today).
Does that mean she sees something special in Nicki too?
Minaj has had a very big year. She had a multi-platinum record with Pink Friday and earned a ubiquitous radio and chart hit with “Super Bass.” And everyone loves her – from Taylor Swift to Justin Bieber’s number one girl Selena Gomez to Britney Spears herself, who handpicked Nicki for her Femme Fatale tour, everyone is gaga for Nicki. Minaj is also beloved by critics and the hip-hop community.
So maybe getting a publicized smooch from Madonna is her way of showing faith in a young performer. After all, when Spears returned to the big time for her comeback album Circus and appeared in the MTV documentary “Britney: For the Record,” Madge was there to lend a hand to the resurgent superstar, proving her support for Spears wasn’t fair-weather. Spears went on to release the best album of her career this year with Femme Fatale, which at least one MTV Newser thinks was the best album of the year.
Perhaps puckering up with Nicki means something similar. We can see Madonna taking a liking to the sexy and sassy rapper. Nicki seems exactly like Madonna’s kind of girl. Or maybe it was just her way of wishing her a happy birthday!
