Madonna was the recipient of the "Top Touring Artist" award during Sunday night's Billboard Awards and the singer's eccentric speech almost overshadowed the fact that Justin Bieber got booed on stage earlier in the night.
Wearing a fur jacket, Kanye West-style sunglasses and black stockings, the queen of pop took the stage, asked Will.i.am -- who presented her with the award -- to hold the prize for her and began delivering her "brief" speech.
During her speech, the "Give Me All Your Luvin'" singer thanked everyone from Will.i.am to her dancers, who she claimed where "the best dancers," her management and her kids. The singer closed her discourse with a sweet remark about her fans.

Looks like Taylor Swift thought Jelena were never, ever, ever getting back together but the two were spotted kissing backstage at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
Selena Gomez keeps announcing that she is single, but actions speak louder than words.
Just last week, Gomez told a Boston radio station she was single, but E! reports that the two were seen snuggled up at a Cirque du Soleil performance in Las Vegas the night before the awards.
In a video clip, Gomez ran into Bieber and gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Gomez's gal pal Taylor Swift reacted by sticking her tongue out in apparent disgust.
In 1944, during World War II, Australian soldier Maurie Isenberg found five copper coins on a beach in the Northern Territory, and marked the spot with an 'X' on a map.
In 1979, he rediscovered the coins in a tin and sent them to a museum for identification, where they were proved to be 1000 years old, The Age reports.
Australian scientist Ian McIntosh, currently Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University, is planning an expedition in July using Isenberg's map. Archaeologists want to study the site to find whether African seafarers reached Australia, or whether the coins just washed up from a shipwreck.
James Cook "discovered" Australia in 1770 and declared it "terra nullius" and claimed it for the British throne. Historians now know Cook wasn't the first white explorer to reach Australia, and that others arrived as early as the sixteenth century.
The five coins date back to the 900s to 1300s, and were among the first coins ever produced in sub-Saharan Africa. They are from the former Kilwa sultanate, once a flourishing trade port but now a World Heritage ruin on an island off Tanzania.
The trade in precious metals and stones and Arabian, Chinese and Persian goods made Kilwa one of the most influential towns in East Africa at the time.
Isenberg found four additional coins that originated from the Dutch East India Company, one of which dates back to 1690.
During his planned expedition to the Wessel Islands, McIntosh will also be looking for a secret cave Aboriginal legends talk about. This cave is supposed to be close to the beach where Isenberg found the coins, and is said to be filled with ancient coins and weaponry.
Miguel's performance at the Billboard Awards was going well up until the moment he decided to leap over a section of the audience into a split.
As he jumped from one part of the stage to another, he clipped a young woman, knocking her over before he landed.

Fortunately for the woman, not only did she come away relatively unscathed (she was later spotted icing her arm) but she got to meet the "Adorn" singer after the show.

"Got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay," Miguel tweeted.

One California woman got a major reminder last week that, when it comes to the Powerball jackpot, almost doesn't count.
Margit Arrobio purchased five Powerball tickets at a Pasadena, Calif., gas station on Wednesday, hoping for a shot at the then-jackpot prize of $360 million.
Arrobio found out Thursday morning she had picked all six of Wednesday's numbers. But the lotto said no winning ticket had been sold.
"I called my gas station where I bought the ticket and I said, 'I don't get it. I have every number and yet they say there's no winner,'" Arrobio told KABC.
Arrobio then realized she had bought the tickets around 8 p.m., about an hour after Wednesday's numbers had already been picked.
The jackpot would eventually top out at $590.5 million on Saturday, when a single winning ticket was sold at a Florida supermarket. As of Monday morning, the prize is still unclaimed.
The winning numbers were 22, 10, 13, 14 and 52, with the Powerball number of 11.
David Beckham burst into tears after he was taken out of Paris St. Germain's 3-1 win over Brest 10 minutes before the end of the game, NESN reported Sunday.
The 38-year-old soccer superstar, who announced his retirement earlier this week, played the final game of his 22-year career on Saturday.
Both sets of fans, players and coaches stood up to applaud Beckham as he walked off the field for the last time in his playing career. He also received an emotional embrace from PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti.
“It’s been very special to finish my career here. It could not have been any more special," Beckham said after the game.
Beckham helped lead PSG to the 3-1 victory with an assist to Blaise Matuidi in the 31st minute of the game.
Ben Affleck finally made it into the venerable "Five-Timers Club" when he hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time this weekend. When the 40-year-old actor discussed his memorable year as the director of award-winning film, "Argo," he asked Jennifer Garner, his wife of eight years, to help him explain his awkward "marriage is work" Oscars speech.
During his opening monologue Saturday night, Garner appeared on stage to jokingly reprimand Affleck for his poor choice of words.
"I'm not sure why you had to share it live to a billion people," Garner said.
"I would have said, 'Thank you to my wife, our marriage is a gift!'" she added.
While picking up his Academy Award for Best Picture in February, Affleck called his marriage to Garner "work."
"I want to thank my wife who I don't usually associate with Iran. I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It's good. It is work but it's the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with," Affleck said.
Special agents Christopher Lorek, 41, and Stephen Shaw, 40, died Friday during a hostage rescue exercise off the coast of Virginia, the Washington Post reported Sunday.
Both men were part of the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team based out of Quantico, Va. According to a Navy rep, the accident occurred aboard the Navy's Military Sealift Command ship, which the FBI had leased for the training.
FBI Director Robert S. Mueller issued a statement in response to their deaths:
The Norfolk Medial Examiner's Office told WAVY-TV that there would be no details about the agents' cause of death until Monday.
Lorek is survived by a wife and two daughters. Shaw is survived by his wife, daughter and son.
The "Saturday Night Live" audience went wild this weekend when "Weekend Update" host Seth Meyers introduced once last edition of "Really?!? With Seth and Amy," co-hosted by his old "SNL" partner, Amy Poehler.
Meyers will soon be leaving his post as head writer for "SNL" to replace Jimmy Fallon as the host of NBC's "Late Night" franchise.
Meyer and Poehler used their popular segment to target the IRS, currently mired in controversy over a report that the agency targeted conservative groups.
“I mean really, the government only keeps you around to make the DMV look good,” Poehler said.
