The memorial also included a tearful speech from Madonna, the only person who might be considered Michael’s contemporary in pop music. The singer wore a zippered black jacket and skirt, and her speech was beautiful and heartfelt. If nothing else, Madonna was a consummate class act during the emotional moment.
And that rounds out our fashion recap of Madonna at the VMAs. I don’t know about you, but I am living. Oh, and did we forget to mention, it’s Madonna’s birthday today? Happy birthday to the Artist with the Most VMA Wins in History™. It’s true, homegirl has 20 (see fact #28). HBD, Queen of Pop/Queen of the VMAs!
