It seems Madonna has caught the Twitter bug.
On March 26, the day MDNA was released, Madonna hit Twitter under the name @MadonnaMDNADay in what was initially billed as a one-time-only fan event to promote her new record. Well, the news that she topped the album charts for the eighth time was enough to bring her back for another round of fan Q&A. And this time, some famous faces got in on the action.
Katy Perry arrived early in the night and offered up a solid question — one that seemed appropriate for the always-evolving “Part of Me” superstar. “Which evolution of you in your career has been your favorite/ most fulfilling, besides the present?”
“Ray of Light. That was a good moment,” Madonna responded. “I wanna see you in the front row somewhere this year. Okay?”
She spent a good part of the evening propositioning her celebrity followers to join her on the road, offering up a very specific invitation to Britney Spears after she tweeted her love for Madonna’s new album. “Please come on stage and kiss me again. I miss you!!” Madge tweeted.
Spears’ response? “Tempting…”
But Madonna would not take no for an answer. “Are you gonna make me work for this?” she asked.
She also shouted out to Lionel Richie, who debuted right behind her this week on the Billboard chart — their first meeting in the top ten since 1986 . And things quickly got a little … suggestive.
“There is no one I would rather be on top with. Congratulations!! I am so happy for you,” Richie tweeted. Madonna’s response was nothing if not characteristic: “OK, but as long as I’m on top.”
“I wouldn’t have it any other way!!” Richie Internet winked.
Elsewhere, we learned that Madonna is an excellent driver (“I’ve never gotten a ticket. Except for having tinted windows too dark”), she was Minnie Mouse for Halloween last year, she seems to want Quentin Tarantino to direct the video for “Gang Bang,” she loved the weather in NYC yesterday and “calla lilies, gardenias [and] tuberose” are her favorite flowers (well, we already knew they certainly weren’t hydrangeas).
She also gave MTV a shout-out after we tweeted our love to the superstar. “Thank you. We started together,” she replied.
The diva tweeted love at her MDNA producers Martin (“Professor Polanski”) Solveig and William (“Billy Bubbles”) Orbit, continued her friendly affair with Ultra Music Festival pal Avicii and pleaded with Skrillex to join her on the road. “I worship you,” the pop queen tweeted to the Grammy-winning DJ/producer. “Why won’t you open up for one of my shows?”
She expressed the most gratitude to her fans repeatedly and even offered up a picture and video of herself alongside her tour dancers and crew surrounded by balloons, sipping champagne and about to dig in to some cake to celebrate MDNA’s #1 debut.
Asked by @Billboard how it felt the first time she hit #1, Her Madgesty tweeted, “The same way that I feel now. Elated, grateful, like all my Christmases have come at once.”
