Madonna performs ‘Music’ with children’s instruments on The Tonight Show

Written by ebookingservices

Madonna was one of the most recent guests on the show The Tonight Show by Jimmy Fallon, where he talked about his career, a collaboration he hopes to do in the future and what his life would have been if he had not dedicated himself to music.

The episode also saw the return of Classroom Instruments, a section in which the artists perform versions of their hits in the company of the presenter and the group The Roots, but with the special factor of doing it with children’s or school instruments. This time the pop diva chose to sing her 2000 hit, ‘Music‘, touching a triangle as her clothes and hair glowed neon.

During the interview, Madonna recalled the moment she saw people dance to one of her songs for the first time (‘Everybody‘ from his debut album), and recounted how ‘Like a Virgin‘ was not going to be the lead single from their second album. “Those were the days when I had no power over anything,” she said. “I don’t know why they chose it because I thought it was somewhat controversial, but it turned out that the controversial thing was not the song itself but my performance at the first MTV Awards.”

That moment is not only one of the most emblematic of his career but of television as it defies the taboos of the time, so much so that his manager at the time warned him that his career had come this far. Certainly her fame did not stop growing like foam, but if it had not been so, the artist maintained that she probably would have dedicated herself to teaching. “I would give a very popular class, something controversial and difficult. She would probably end up in prison,” she added.

The interpreter of ‘hang-up‘ expressed his admiration for Kendrick Lamar and hailed his latest album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. “Your new album of his is historic,” she said. “It’s extremely brilliant, it’s crazy. [Lamar] He is very talented”.

Last week, Madonna teamed up with Beyoncé to put a spin on the lead single from renaissance. ‘Break My Soul (The Queens Remix)‘merge song with ‘fashion‘, while Queen B changes the names of the verse that begins “Greta Garbo and Monroe/Dietrich and DiMaggio…”, by those of black icons like Missy Elliot, Diana Ross, Grace Jones, Aretha Franklin and more.
