(AMSTERDAM) — For many, proposing marriage is a terrifying task. But one lucky woman got help from Madonna before she popped the question to her boyfriend in front of several hundred thousand people.
Halfway through Madonna’s July 8 concert in Amsterdam, she announced that she heard a rumor that someone was going to propose that night. A woman in the front row raised her hand and the “Like a Virgin” singer handed her the microphone so the arena, and now the world thanks to YouTube, could hear it.
“Is that the man you love?” Madonna asked the woman.
“Do you love her? Huh? Very much?” the singer demanded of the guy.
Then Madonna, who has been married and divorced twice, walked the woman through the marriage proposal.
“Do it with feeling, from the heart, baby,” Madonna told the woman.
After the man said “yes” and the singer told them to “kiss with tongue,” she gave them more advice.
“Never go to bed angry, OK?” the singer said.
“Two pieces of advice. Sorry,” she added. “Learn to say the word, ‘I f**ked up.’”
As the crowd cheered, the singer corrected herself saying, “That’s more than one word.” She then topped off the proposal by dedicating a song to the happy couple.
