Madonna Rocks Music Awards Show with Taylor Swift as Guest Guitarist


Madonna rocked the I Heart Music Awards last night in a surprise performance with Taylor Swift on guitar. It went off perfectly. Madonna was dressed appropriately, the song– “Ghostown”– was ballady and catchy, and Taylor Swift was a sport for letting Madge use her as an ambassador to a younger generation. Coincidences? I Heart Radio is really Clear Channel, which is also still Live Nation. And Live Nation is putting a lot of Madonna shows on sale today, including Madison Square Garden. If this doesn’t sell tickets, I don’t what will. Good work! PS Taylor got a lot of awards last night including star of the century or something.
