Madonna shares a blast from the past and details about when her career almost came to an end.

On Wednesday’s ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, the pop legend, 63, began her interview by explaining that she has “no say” in the singles released by her label.

Entering the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards, Madonna thought her song choice, “Like a Virgin,” would be the controversy of the night. But a wardrobe malfunction stole the show.

“Turns out the controversial thing wasn’t the song itself. It was my performance at the MTV Awards,” she told Fallon. During her performance, Madonna walked down the steps of a large wedding cake when one of her shoes got stuck and came off her foot.

“I was trying to do this fluid movement, like dive towards the shoe and make it look like choreography. And my dress flipped and my butt showed,” she recalled. “Can you imagine? It was the time when you didn’t have to show your ass to have a career. Now it’s the opposite.”

Madonna said she was unaware her back was showing and continued with her performance.

“It happened by accident, and I didn’t even know my butt was showing. And it wasn’t even like, whole butt. It was like a butt. Like, half of a butt,” did she say. “When I went backstage, my manager told me my career was over.”

In June, Madonna released “Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones,” which featured remixes of some of her biggest hits. During her appearance on the talk show, she mentioned an artist she would like to collaborate with.

“I mean, there’s one artist that I revere more than anything and would love to collaborate with and that’s Kendrick Lamar,” she said. “His new record is historic…unbelievably brilliant. It’s crazy.”

“He can put on any outfit and look swag like you know what,” she said. “It’s really annoying. He wears my clothes and he looks better in it. He can even wear a dress and look like a guy.”

David, whom Madonna adopted in 2006, takes on more than his mother’s fashion sense.

“He’s going to end up being one of your guests,” she told Fallon, referring to her son’s musical talent. She said her son had “everything” to be a star.

Fallon agreed.

“He has it.” He has magic. He’s funny, he’s charming, he’s athletic, he’s a good looking guy,” Fallon said.
