Madonna was a guest at American talk show host Jimmy Fallon for her new documentary Madame X to promote, but in the end showed a lot more of himself than expected.
Singer Madonna (63) was a guest at the American talk show on Thursday The tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She was there to promote her new documentary Madame X. But Fallon also spoke to her about her long and iconic career. “You always do things that others don’t. You do them first and then people do it without giving you anything for it,” Fallon said. Madonna’s answer: “They’re not doing very well either. It sounds arrogant, but it’s true.”
Madonna went on to say that she has been inspired by the writer James Baldwin all her life. A quote that has always stuck with her: Artists are here to disturb the peace. Loosely translated: artists are there to disrupt public order.
And Madonna also wanted to put that into practice. So she stretched out on Fallon’s desk and then lifted her skirt again.
Opinions on social media are divided. From ‘she’s too old for this’ to ‘Madonna remains Madonna’. Jimmy Fallon herself yelled that she had to stop, but in the end had a good laugh about it.
