A Canadian couple standing in the front row at Madonna’s show in Edmonton, Alberta Sunday night got the thrill of a lifetime when the Queen of Pop prompted them to get engaged, as Pink News reported.
A YouTube video captured the moment Madonna told a fan named Jan to propose to his boyfriend Chad, before the sold-out crowd of nearly 17,000 fans.
She toyed with Jan at first, telling him “Jan” is “a girl’s name,” to which he replied, “no!” Madonna, who clearly was not out to offend, played with them some more by telling Jan, “You’re the girl,” and Chad, “You’re the boy.” She also briefly mixed-up Chad’s name, calling him, “Jack.”
But the couple took it all in stride, as Jan turned to the mike and shouted to Chad, “I love you with all my heart, Chad. Will you marry me, please?”
Chad gladly and swiftly accepted and Madonna announced, “You may kiss the bride!”
The tens of thousands crowded into Rexall Place cheered and applauded as they watched the newly engaged couple kiss on the arena’s Jumbotron.
Same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada for a decade.
But Madonna wasn’t done: “You forgot the most important part,” she said. “You need to catch the bouquet.”
And after tossing flowers to Jan and Chad, another fan handed Madonna crucifix on a chain, which she promptly put around her neck. “You get a bouquet, I get a crucifix,” said Madonna. “It all works out.”
