At a taping for her MTV Unplugged special (airing tonight at 9/8c), Miley Cyrus collaborated on two tracks with Madonna.

Sources on the scene confirm the superstars sang Miley's "We Can't Stop" together, along with Madonna's "Don't Tell Me," while both artists donned Western-themed outfits and Miley slapped Madge's rear end on multiple occasions.

No surprise there. That's often how Cyrus rolls.

What did Miley think of crooning alongside the most successful female solo singer of all-time?

The 2014 Grammy Awards were full of powerhouse performances, but the most moving, by far, belonged to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with Mary Lambert.

Their performance lit up L.A.'s Staples Center, and was made all the more stirring with Queen Latifah officiated 33 marriages, many of them same-sex.

As if that wasn't enough, Madonna, a champion of equality for decades, joined Macklemore, Ryan and Mary on their gay marriage anthem "Same Love."

Watch the powerful effort from the 2014 Grammy Awards winners, who received a thunderous ovation from the capacity crowd, for yourself below ...

Toward the end of the duo's hit, Madonna joined Mary Lambert to conclude the song with a mash-up of the “Same Love” chorus and “Open Your Heart.”

Queen Latifah joined the singers in unison, along with a gospel choir and horn aficionado Trombone Shorty amidst a backdrop of stained glass windows.

After introducing the performance, Latifah returned to the stage at the end to formally officiate 34 gay marriages in an incredibly emotional moment.

Thirty-four smiling couples exchanged rings in front of the arena audience, and 40 million viewers, as the ordained minister pronounced them married.

That's a hard act to tough ... even if you're Beyonce and Jay-Z and "Drunk in Love." What did you think of the performance? Tell us in the comments!

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be joined by Madonna at tonight's Grammy Awards for a rendition of their hit song "Same Love," and that's not nearly all:

While the hip hop duo performs their gay marriage anthem, 33 couples, many of them same-sex will marry in a collective, on-air wedding officiated by Queen Latifah.

Nominated for Song of the Year, and with marriage equality sparking intense national debate, "Same Love" was one of 2013's most talked-about records.

Lewis, the producer for Macklemore and the director of the music video (above), said the weddings “will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality."

That, he says, is that "all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing.”

The segment follows what Grammy Awards organizers say is the ceremony's long, often profound history of addressing timely social issues through music.

Lady Gaga is, or at least was, more than happy to ruffle Madonna's feathers over her hit song "Born This Way," she reveals in an interview with Attitude.

"I have to be really honest, I was completely kind of floored that Madonna was singing my song on her stage every night!" Mother Monster recalled.

"I'm not thinking about anybody but me and my fans when I'm on stage."

Madonna took to performing a mashup of "Born This Way" and "Express Yourself" (her old hit) during live concerts last year, as a means of making a point.

The songs  share a similar beat and melody, but Gaga says "the fact that I was on her mind at all ... I mean, Madonna's ... she’s Madonna. I looked up to her for a long time."

In a new interview with Billboard, Prince makes his feelings on both Madonna and Maroon 5 very clear: the iconic singer is not a fan.

Asked by things ended badly between himself and Warner Bros. Records, Prince cites the Material Girl by name, telling the magazine:

"It was always about Madonna. She was getting paid, but at the same time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights."

Madonna put on a last-minute concert in Paris last night with one goal in mind: peace and tolerance.

By the time it was over, just 45 minutes after the Material Girl took the stage, debris was flying and fans were screaming for a refund.

Madonna planned the show in response to her tussle with that nation's National Front party, which started when the singer flashed the Nazi symbol over politician Marine Le Pen's face, telling attendees:

"I know that I made a certain Marine Le Pen very angry with me. And it's not my intention to make enemies... it's my intention to promote tolerance. And when we can start saying that we have to get rid of this person or we have to get rid of that person, because then we'll have a better place, it starts to sound like something else; it starts to sound like something scary."

The sentiment may have been admirable, but it was followed by just a handful of songs, no encore performance and 2,700 concert goers irate at the legendary artist.

This is merely the latest in a string of bad PR moves by Madonna: she pointed a gun to her head during a show in London and mooned the crowd in Berlin.

Someone may need a break from the spotlight for awhile.

There is no mooning involved. Nor is there a nip slip of any kind.

Unexpected waterworks? Nope, not in this case.

But Madonna has come out with the official music video for "Turn Up the Radio," her third track of "MDNA," which is her 12th studio album and is available now around the world.

Watch the Material Girl drive around in a Cadillac convertible and keep your eye out for her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat, who makes a cameo in the following video:

One day, she disses Lady Gaga. The next, Madonna flashes the crowd. A week later, she moons the audience. The Material Girl's tour is full of surprises.

The latest noteworthy moment? During a slowed-down performance of her '84 hit "Like a Virgin" in Berlin, Madonna broke down and cried, live on stage.

Check out the strange and emotional performance below ...

Fortunately for Madonna, a shirtless backup dancer lifted her up, fastened her up into a corset and sensually stroked her body in mid-song.

That's enough to lift anyone's spirits, and/or libido.

He then tightened her corset, causing her to theatrically gasp for air. She quickly pulled herself together, finishing the song to much applause.

Even at 53, Madonna is clearly not afraid to go there.

During her concert in Istanbul this weekend, the Queen of Pop tantalized the crowd during a performance of her hit song “Human Nature,” wearing a skimpy bra top that she promptly pulled down to reveal one voluptuous nipple.

This was no wardrobe malfunction, either.

This is Madge basically saying "yes, I can and will do this ... deal."

As the decades go by, Madonna has shown no signs of slowing down, or going soft. She continues confront critics - with an absence of subtlety - who say she goes too far in invoking sex in her music and performances.

She's still finding an audience for it, too.

Her big MDNA concert stop in Istanbul came before 55,000 strong, and she reportedly followed up “Human Nature” with “Like A Virgin” ... natch.
