Golden Globes 2012: Madonna Hits Back At Ricky Gervais

First Posted: 01/15/12 11:36 PM ET Updated: 01/15/12 11:55 PM ET

Tensions were high at this year's Golden Globes as Ricky Gervais took on hosting duties once again, but the British comedian quickly learned not to mess with one nominee: Madonna.

Gervais introduced the nominated singer-turned-director on stage to present an award and referenced a few of her '80s hits.

"OK, our next presenter is the Queen of Pop. Not you, Elton [John], sit down," Gervais said. "She's all woman. I'll give you some clues. She's always vogue. She's a material girl. And she's just like a virgin."

Madonna dished the jokes right back to Gervais, much to the delight of the star-studded crowd.

"If I'm still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don't you come over here and do something about it?" she taunted. "I haven't kissed a girl in a few years -- on TV."

Perhaps the songstress, who won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song for her film, "W.E.," was just in a fiesty mood. While accepting her award, she referred to The Weinstein Company head honcho Harvey Weinstein as "The Punisher."

Leave it to Madonna to cause some drama on the stage.
