Finally! Madonna's wish to meet Barack Obama was finally granted on Wednesday, June 8, when she was introduced to the president of the United States during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Talking to Us Weekly exclusively last year for a 25 Things You Don't Know About Me feature, the Material Girl revealed that Obama, 54, was the one person she really wanted to meet.
"The person I most want to meet is President Obama," she said. "When the heck am I going to meet him? He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I’m too shocking to be there. I’m serious. If I was a little bit more demure … or if I was just married to Jay Z. Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I’d score an invitation."
As it turns out, the "Bitch I'm Madonna" singer didn't have to wait for an invite to the White House — because Jimmy Fallon made the dream meeting take place, backstage at his late show, where the president was filming an interview, inviting Madonna along for a musical appearance.
"For Once I'm Speechless………..President Obama 🇺🇸 @jimmyfallon," the 57-year-old musician captioned the photographic evidence of the meeting, which she shared via Instagram. In the photo, Madonna, who is wearing a black shirt and a black and white tie, looks demure and in shock as she stands in front of a blurred Obama.
In another photo, shared later in the night, the two are seen posing with their arms around each other, both smiling broadly.
"A meeting of the Leo's. A Cosmic Convergence!! #rebelhearts @jimmyfallon," she captioned the snap.
The episode, which will air today, Thursday, June 9, is being hailed as a "one of a kind" show by NBC.
