“Madonna” Talks Kanye West, Katy Perry, & Julianne Moore In This Reunion Special

By Madonna.

“Living for Love”….

It isn’t over until the fat lady sings!!! But I watch my calorie intake so for now… it must be. Though my advice to you would be to never look back, I must say, reminiscing over this past season brought a tear to me eye. ENOUGH with the sentiment though, keep your tissues and a cocktail near you for this lovely Reunion Special. 

I really do want to thank you all for making #MadonnaDearest so epic!

Better not go too far because I’LL BE BACK… MUUHAHAHA! 

If you want to more of me, post #madonnadearestseason2 to the VH1 twitter or Vh1 Facebook page or show your support in the comments below.

Until next time…

Milian’s lack of Twitter know-how — and possibly her rumored relationship with Lil Wayne — saved things from getting nasty. Read more…
