Madonna Is Grateful for Pop ‘Princesses’ Like Taylor Swift Because of All the ‘Pretty Dresses’

Swift's Twitter DMs were allegedly leaked yesterday.
As a pop star, getting Madonna’s seal of approval is one of the biggest milestones you can achieve. Just ask Lady Gaga.

Thus, Taylor Swift is rightly freaking out after Madonna paid her (and her fashion game) a compliment during an interview with Richard Wilkins of Network Nine’s Today show in Australia.

Of pop stars like Swift, Rihanna, and Katy Perry, Madonna said “It’s good to have princesses [of pop]. It means there’s lots of pretty dresses around.”

Odd compliment, Madge, but it will do, especially considering, yes, Swift does wear many pretty dresses. (Also, it’s funny to note that Madonna still doesn’t seem ready relinquishing her “Queen” title.) But wait, there’s more!

“I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs. I can’t get them out of my head,” Madonna added.

For her part, Swift took to her Tumblr — one of her social media accounts that wasn’t hacked yesterday — to express herself (reference!). “Thanks now I’m dead,” Swift said.

So there you have it, folks: Madonna killed Taylor Swift. Who will inherit all of her pretty dresses, we wonder?
