The stars, they are just like us! Sometimes they, too, are moved to tears by Madonna — oh, wait.
In Berlin over the weekend, a dramatic rework of “Like a Virgin” had the 53-year-old Queen of Pop herself reaching for her deepest vocal registers, and then the tissues. About three minutes into the video above, Madge loses herself to tears. Kneeling down at the edge of the stage, she took a beat or two to regain herself before she was raised to her feet by a shirtless back-up dancer so that she could finish the number.
The MDNA tour has been has been full of surprises, nip-slips, an overturned tour truck, and a pant drop having preceded this teary break-down. But that’s just how Madge, an ever shocking performer, does. And million “Like A Virgin”s later, she has more than earned that moment.
