Ariana Grande is still shaking her ass two weeks after performing with Madonna at a Raising Malawi charity event. The singer shared a video via Instagram featuring the two women rehearsing their short dance that ended in booty shaking until Madonna said stop.
“Still shaking 2 weeks later,” Ariana captioned the video. Madonna shared the same video, but included footage of the two singers taking a selfie and Madonna complaining about how red she looked compared to Ariana’s tan skin.

Lady Gaga reached out to one of her musical foremothers via Twitter on Monday. The Mother Monster sent a tweet to Madonna to offer support and praise for her speech at the Billboard Women in Music Awards. In her speech, Madonna opened up about the misogyny she’s faced in the music industry and the violence she’s faced as a woman, including being raped.
Ariana Grande joined Madonna to help raise money for the Raising Malawi organization on Friday night. The singer danced on stage with Madonna while wearing the singer’s “Rebel Heart Tour” outfit which was also auctioned off.
Feeling emotional about the time spent with the icon, Ariana took to Instagram to share her appreciation. “Of all the reasons I live for / adore you, your heart is what I am most inspired by. Thank you for having me be a part of such an important evening and for giving giving giving as much as you do,” she captioned a video.

In preparation for the launch of her new album, “Joanne,” on Friday, Lady Gaga stopped Zane Lowe’s “Beats 1″ interview show to discuss her new music, the boring business of robotic songwriting and all of the garbage on the Internet. But she also had something to say about a comparison Zane made between her and another pop star. When Zane brought up that she has some things in common with Madonna, Gaga wasn’t so sure about it.
“Madonna and I are very different,” Gaga says. “I wouldn’t make that comparison at all.” Gaga quickly qualified her statement to make sure Zane didn’t think she was just dissing Madge.
“I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna,” she explains. “She’s a nice lady. And she’s had a fantastic, huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time.” But that doesn’t mean Gaga still doesn’t believe there’s some key differences between her work and Madonna’s.
“I play a lot of instruments, I write all my own music,” Gaga says. “I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.”
Check out the clip of what Gaga had to say about Madge below, plus her full interview with Zane.
