Madonna Responds to Critics of Her Grills
Ahead of the release of her album Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, Madonna made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.
The pop icon immediately interrupted host Jimmy Fallon to make a note of her new metal teeth. "I just got these new grills, and if I start lisping will you tell me?" she asked Fallon, 47.
The host responded in awe, saying, "Ooh they're beautiful! I love them."
Madonna then revealed that she designed the accessory herself for her 64th birthday. "They're my 'birthday grills,'" she said. "It's almost my birthday, so I got myself a pair of grills."
"People have a problem with my grills, I don't know why," the Material Girl said to Fallon, who also couldn't understand the grill critics.
"Why? You have been wearing them for a while," he said. To which Madonna replied, "Decades."
She continued, "I just like the way it looks — it's mouth jewelry — and I have really ugly teeth."
