Congrat Cooper...

The cheeky Material Girl went on a mission to squeeze some ass at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York in fancy dress on Saturday.

The 54-year-old pop queen got more than she bargained for when she ended up snogging gay CNN host Anderson Cooper on stage as she presented the 45-year-old with the Vito Russo GLAAD Award, in recognition of making a difference in promoting equality as a gay man.

Madge had told the silver fox she wanna 'grab his ass' but it's Cooper who upstaged the queen of controversy in the publicity stunt stakes when he called her bluff and pulled her in for a snog.

The superstar wore her costume to launch a stinging attack on the Boy Scouts of America weeks after singer Carly Rae Jepson pulled out of performing for the scouts after hearing they have a ban on members being openly gay.

"I wanted to be a Boy Scout but they wouldn’t let me join," said Madonna. "I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent... Listen, I want to do good for the community. Most importantly, I know how to scout for boys!"

"I think I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout," she continued. "And I think they should change their stupid rules."

The mum-of-four then confessed her fears for her own children after a string of teen suicides across the US.

"When I think about young kids today in America who are being bullied and tortured, who are taking their own lives because they feel alone and judged, [like] outcasts and misunderstood, I want to cry a river of tears," said the Vogue singer.

"I have teenagers of my own now and the idea of them or any young person experiencing that kind of pain is unfathomable to me. It’s an atrocity to me. I don’t accept it."

Great speech Madge and well done Cooper!
