Reliving a moment: Madonna appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and spoke about her 1984 performance of Like A Virgin
She is set to sing her new song Give Me All Your Luvin at the Super Bowl a week on Sunday. But on Tonight’s Jay Leno show Madonna was speaking about one of her most iconic past performances. The singer,53, revealed how her infamous rendition of Like A Virgin at the 1984 Video Music Awards was not all planned – in fact flashing her underwear was an accident.
Sophisticated style: The singer looked chic in a sparkling black shift dress and Christian Louboutin peep toe heels
Madonna, who was looking demure in a sparkling shift dress which just below the knee and a pair of Christian Louboutin heels explained the incident.
She said: ‘Here’s what happened. I was standing at the top of a wedding cake, as one does, and I walked down these steps, which were the tiers of a wedding cake. And I lost my shoe. I lost my white stiletto. And I thought, 'Oh god, how am I gonna get that? It's over there and I'm on TV.'’
‘So I thought well, I'll just pretend I meant to do this and I dove on to the floor and I rolled around and I reached for the shoe. And as I reached for the shoe, the dress went up. And the underpants were showing.... I didn't mean to.
Leggy lady: Madonna showed off er slim shape a she sat in the chair and the pair discussed her infamous Video Music Awards performance
Leno noted: ‘And it became the greatest night in television history.’
Earlier today it emerged that Elton John offered the signer some rather unfriendly advice ahead of her Superbowl performance.
'Make sure you lip-synch good' he said mischievously.
Viewers have been treated to a sneak peak of Madona's new song which will be seen on Thursday night's American Idol show ahead of her performance at the Super bowl.
