Madonna and Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala

Sometimes, it’s nice to be reminded that Kim Kardashian is a person under all that awful. For example, she loved Madonna as a little kid. Yes, even the Adversary was probably lip-syncing to “Express Yourself” in her bedroom at some point in her human youth. It almost makes her relatable.

Anyway, apparently Kim met Madonna when she was a little kid. Madonna told Extra:

Madonna also loves fashion and told Jerry that when she posed with Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala it was the second time she had met the reality TV star. “I met her years and years ago when she was a little girl, believe it or not. She told me she was a huge fan of mine, and it was during the time I was wearing all of the rubber bracelets on my arms. I took off all of the bracelets and gave them to her and then I completely forgot about it. She reminded me when I saw her the other night. Now she’s a pregnant lady!”

What’s really shocking about this, though, is that we learned it from Madonna, and not from one of Kim’s countless social media outlets where she trumpets constantly about the minutiae of her day to day existence.
