Today in Madonna History: November 5, 2014

On November 5 2014, Madonna was a presenter at the Wall Street Journal’s 2014 Innovator Awards, held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

According to The Cut, Madonna stole the show at the WSJ Innovator Awards:

Highlights of the night included Madonna’s delightfully unhinged, meandering speech in honor of dancer Lil Buck. Equal parts irritated mom and supportive mentor, the queen of pop complained, “Buck shows up uninvited at my house for dinner all the time,” but went on to praise his tenacity, grace, and talent. Midway through her speech, she scolded a man in the audience for taking a photo of her at the podium. None of that mattered once Lil Buck took the stage and performed his now-famous “Swan” dance. He received both the Performing Arts Innovation award and a standing ovation from the crowd.
