Last month, Drake kissed Madonna on stage at Coachella. The pair shared an intimate moment during his headline set at the closing day of the Californian festival on April 12. The incident made headlines when Drake appeared to grimace following the kiss.

This has led to days of jokes and memes online, with Drake being forced to clarify that he enjoyed the kiss but it was the taste of Madonna’s lipstick that made him react in the way he did.

Madonna later addressed the incident, saying: “You asked the million dollar question. I kissed a girl, and I liked it… Don’t kiss Drake, no matter how many times he begs you to.”

Drake has also been announced as a headliner of London’s Wireless festival this year. He joins Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, David Guetta and Avicii on the bill.
