Britney Spears did it. Google CEO Eric Schmidt did it. And Tuesday night, at Madison Square Garden, Madonna did it too. The 54-year-old Material Girl invited Psy up on stage to perform his international hit "Gangnam Style" and showed the world her best horsey dance moves. Our verdict? Madonna can dance, but when it comes to that side-stepping, reign-holding, horse dance, she's got nothing on Psy. That guy is smooth. Evolution of the 'Gangnam Style' phenomenon [Video]

There goes Madonna, classing up the joint again. To show her support of Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot and critically wounded by the Taliban because of her advocacy for girls' education, the Material Girl (a.k.a. Madge, Esther, the Queen of Pop, the Hottest Bod in the AARP) took the opportunity during a recent concert at L.A.'s Staple Center to pull her pants down and reveal a (fake) tattoo of the girl's name inked across the small of her back. Take that, Taliban!

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of 2011's cinematic flame-out "W.E.," Madonna has spent this year kicking up the kind of high-profile controversy that originally made her a star. The singer got into a spat with the dance-music heavyweight Deadmau5 after allegedly asking concertgoers at March's Ultra Music Festival if they'd taken Ecstasy. The hubbub only increased once Madonna kicked off her latest world tour, which this week stops at Staples Center for shows on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Elton John is taking aim once again at his favorite star target: fellow pop icon Madonna. Promoting a series of concerts in Australia, John sat down to discuss his career, longtime love David Furnish and more, and, naturally, took a few jabs at Madge. "She's such a nightmare. Her career's over," Elton told the Aussie magazine show "Sunday Night. " "And she looks like a ... fairground stripper. She's been so horrible to Gaga,” he continued (video below), presumably blasting her provocative "MDNA" tour looks and referencing her tension with Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga was groggy, grateful and a little bit remiss on Tuesday - though we can't exactly interpret that last part for you. The pop star, who's on tour Down Under, was bouncing back from a head injury suffered mid-concert on Sunday night in New Zealand. "Thank you so much for all the thoughtful messages," the singer tweeted. "I feel a bit woozy but a little better everyday. Very happy to be in beautiful Australia. " She's set to perform half-dozen dates in that country, starting with a gig Wednesday in Brisbane.
