“OK, our next presenter is the Queen of Pop. Not you, Elton [John], sit down,” Ricky Gervais joked. “She’s all woman. I’ll give you some clues: She’s always vogue. She’s a material girl. And she’s just like a virgin,” he said with a sarcastic cough. “Please welcome Madonna.”
While Gervais got laughs for his introduction, Madge was ready with some good-natured ribbing for the British comedian.
“If I’m still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don’t you come over here and do something about it?” she teased. “I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years — on TV. Hmm, OK. Moving right along.” Behind Madonna, Gervais could be seen running away, which drew more laughs from the room.
