Once upon a time, Madonna said she didn't really have an interest in meeting other famous people—except one, who was playing rather hard to get. 

"The person I most want to meet is President Obama," she said in an interview with Us Weekly. "When the heck am I going to meet him? He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I'm too shocking to be there. I'm serious. If I was a little bit more demure…or if I was just married to Jay Z. Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I'd score an invitation."

But as luck/her Madge-y powers would have it, the two did meet backstage at Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, where the president was filming an interview and Madonna was taping a musical appearance for the "one of a kind" show airing Thursday.

She probably wasn't in the right state of mind for this, but let's just imagine the new friends discussed her Met Gala outfit-cum-political statement.
