Music mogul Madonna has confirmed recent hype involving her laying a kiss on Young Money star Nicki Minaj but denied it was overly romantic.
Madonna claims the lip-locking gesture was in honor of a special occasion.
Behind closed doors, Madonna said, "I'm the easy one... I go home and I wash my face and I put on my sweat pants, and I lay down on the bed and i say, 'Oh, please rub my feet,' and he says, 'No, you rub my feet!' He's not the only one she's been kissing, as Nicki Minaj, her "Gimme All Your Luvin'" collaborator, revealed on Twitter recently. "I did, but it was her birthday! I just gave her a birthday kiss. No tongue, who said tongue?" Madonna said. "She has lovely lips."
Last month, Minaj made headlines after breaking the news of her unexpected kiss.
"In the presence of greatness. MADONNA," Minaj tweeted December 7th.
"OH MY f'ingggg Gahhhh!!!!! MADONNA jus kissed me!!!!! On the lips!!!!!!! It felt sooooo good. Soooo soft!!!! *passes out* aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!"

"No barbz...like...seriously...it felt soooooooooo good!!!!!!! Sooooo soft! Like what?!?!?! bwahahahhahahahahahaha!!!!" (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
