Just in case you missed the show (like me, lol), I’m including a few key points from the People report, which were noted during a game of “Never Have I Ever” played on the show.
- Madonna didn’t shy away from getting risqué, asking about the game paddles: “Can we spank each other with these?”Both singers admitted they’d fooled around in a bathroom during a party, gotten frisky while someone else was in the room andforgotten the name of a hookup. (Also for the record: Bieber has dated siblings but insists he hasn’t had phone sex.)DeGeneres – who only copped to a little bathroom action – joked, “You two are perfect for each other!”
- Madonna cozily leaned in for a cuddle with Bieber and said, “I feel like I’m getting to know my new boyfriend.”The flirtation continued the theme of Madonna’s taste for younger men, which DeGeneres brought up just before the game began. (See the full story at People.com)
I’m not sure how I feel about this one. On the one hand, to each his or her own – and the older I get, the more I realize that age is just a number. So on that side of things, maybe it’s not a big deal. Obviously Madonna’s not planning on having any Bieber babies, right? So a fling is a fling – who are we to judge two grown adults?
On the flip side, there are those who would frown on this deal for the most obvious reason – the age difference.
If you don’t find yourself feeling disgusted by it, would you feel the same if it were an older man dating a younger woman? Say it were the 56-year-old Prince and the 21-year-old? Would that be different for you, or the same? Why?
I’m interested in your thoughts on this one – please leave them in the comments section below, or join in the discussion on our Facebook page.
