The rapper was performing his song Madonna, when the pop star herself emerged in black thigh-length boots and a multicoloured mac. While Drake DJ’d, she performed her 1994 hit Human Nature, which then cut to her 2005 single Hung Up.
Removing the mac to reveal a basque top emblazoned with the slogan Bitch I’m Madonna, Drake then sat in a chair, a reference to his lapdancing scene in Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda video.
Madonna then kissed the rapper, rubbed her hands over his chest and announced “Bitch, I’m Madonna” – the title of one of her new songs.
Drake asked: “Did that just happen?”

Madonna crashed the Coachella stage on Sunday night, surprising the thousands of festivalgoers there to watch Drake’s headlining set. But it was the rapper himself who looked the most surprised when Madonna, during an odd performance of “Human Nature,” bent over and made out with him as he sat on stage in a chair.
“What the f— just happened?” the rapper laughed after lengthy kiss.
“I’m Madonna, bitch,” the 56 year-old pop star said before exiting the stage.
Watch the video below:
Drake closed out Coachella’s first weekend with a bang, inviting the queen of pop herself onstage with him for his song, “Madonna,” then ceding the microphone to Madonna for her own mini-medley, including bits of her hits “Hung Up” and “Human Nature.”
The two had previously flirted on Instagram but ramped things up a notch with a sloppy wet kiss that Madonna planted on the rapper at the end of her cameo. Oohs and aahs could be heard emanating from the crowd, which had faithfully sung along to much of Drake’s set, especially radio hits like “We Made It,” “All Me” and “Hold On We’re Going Home” in addition to covers by YG (“Who Do You Love”) and Big Sean (“Blessings”).
Drake’s stage set up was minimal, with nary a DJ or band member to be seen. Instead, the Canadian rapper used elaborate video screens to tell stories through song.
The 2 track cd single is now also available for pre-order through Bol.com

The mega record and cd fair in Utrecht has been heaven for collectors worldwide since the 90’s, Madonna is always present in the form of displays, vinyl and promo goodies.
However today was a different story. We left the fair disappointed and extremely early due to the fact that even though M has just released a new album, it was kind of hard to find a nice Madonna goodie among the many ‘heavy metal’ and ’60’s’ sellers. To our disappointment many of the Madonna records that were there, were unofficial (picture disc) vinyl pressings, containing live shows or other material. The really rare and official stuff was much harder to find.
Unfortunately we were told by various sellers at the record fair that they did bring nice goodies (such as the Celebration promo box) but that they all sold their goodies to another dealer from France, who resold the stuff for a much higher price (bad news for the regular visitor and collectors that try and find a good deal).
The only interesting merchandise we stumbled upon was a range of unreleased The English Roses jewelry. A whole set of merchandise was created for The English Roses (Madonna’s first ever childrens’ book) but was never approved and therefore never sold in stores. This is an example of a bracelet in the line.
The next record fair is in November, hopefully sellers have brought a bit more Madonna and hopefully it will be sold to fans, and not to other dealers this time
De clip van Madonna’s nieuwe single ‘Ghosttown’ heeft een Belgisch tintje: de popdiva draagt hierin een jurk van het Belgische ontwerpersduo A.F. Vandevorst. De lange donkergroene zijden jurk die Madonna draagt in de apocalyptische video werd door styliste Bea Akerlund gekozen om haar een dramatische look te geven. De jurk komt uit de wintercollectie van 2012, een collectie die geïnspireerd was door de bekende danseres Pina Bausch.
Chrome Hearts worked with Madonna on her rock n’ roll look, creating a custom double-breasted floor-length leather jacket and a corset with sterling silver buttons and detailing. We caught up with co-owner of Chrome Hearts, Laurie Lynn Stark, to find out more about what it was like to work with Madonna…
Grazia Daily: What is the process like when designing outfits for a video?
Laurie: “I LOVE projects like this! Opportunities like this, when we get to really take our creativity to the extreme, is cherished time for us. We get approached for projects like this often but our factory and our team are always so busy that it takes something truly special to make it worth stepping on the brakes and putting all the focus on the project. In this case, the opportunity to work with Madonna’s team and with B Akerlund, was one of those time where it all made sense and we knew the results would be powerful. For Ghosttown, we had about a week’s notice and met with B at our factory (after a few preliminary phone calls while we were traveling for fashion weeks). She had a concept in mind and we just started pulling leathers, coming up with jacket structures, finding the right finishes – sterling silver buttons and cross patches etc. The easy part was that we all saw the same vision immediately, so the challenge was how to bring it to life in the most dramatic and beautiful way.”
Grazia Daily: What was it like working with Madonna? Have you ever worked with her before?
Laurie: “We’ve worked with Madonna for fashion editorial spreads. She’s been a customer and supporter for many years. We’ve done small custom pieces for her here and there but for this we’ve reached a new level. This was couture.”
Grazia Daily: How long did it take to create the custom pieces?
Laurie: “Once we had the idea and materials locked in, it took about a week and 30 people working on it to finish the construction. For the last 2 days, we worked around the clock.”
Grazia Daily: What was the idea behind the look?
Laurie: “B came to us with this Apocalyptic meets Rock & Roll with a bit of a “ship wrecked” mood so we took that and ran.”
Grazia Daily: How involved was Madonna in the creation of the pieces?
Laurie: “Her and B had been working together for a while on this album so I know that Madonna was all about the shape and silhouettes of this look.”
