Yesterday Madonna was invited on the Howard Stern Show for a reveal-all interview where she talked about a number of hot topics, including her history of drug use (used to, but not anymore!) and her on-again-off-again friendship with Rosie O'Donnell ("I adore her!"). But perhaps her biggest reveal was when Howard brought up her 1994 appearance on 'The Late Show with David Letterman', controversial for her liberal use of the f-bomb. She cursed so much that it went on to become the most censored episode of any late night talk show in history!
"I was mad at [Letterman] when I said the F-word a lot. I was in a weird mood that day," Madonna explained. "I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up on life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta."
What, what? I don't know what's more brow-raising - the idea of Madonna and Tupac dating, or the fact that dating Tupac apparently brought out Madonna's inner 'gangsta'.
According to E!, the couple first were introduced through Rosie Perez, as revealed by Rosie during an interview with Wendy Williams last year. And "Madonna: Like An Icon", an unauthorized biography published in 2007, claimed the two briefly dated one year before Shakur's death. Because of that, Madonna figured it was public knowledge by now.
But no, Madge. It really wasn't. And now after seeing this 1994 headline from The Globe, I know I should really be paying more attention to the tabloids.
