Madonna: Out Ricky Gervais-ing Ricky Gervais?

While appearing onstage to present the award for best foreign language film, she got in perhaps the best zingers of the night — and at Ricky Gervais’s expense.

After Gervais introduced the pop icon by sarcastically noting that she’s still “like a virgin” (wink, wink), Madonna came out with, shall we say, guns blazing.

“If I’m still like a virgin, Ricky, then why don’t you come over here and do something about it?” she said to applause and whoops from the audience.

“I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years ... on TV,” she added.

More whoops.

So far, most voters in our Ricky Gervais monologue poll say he was “not biting enough.” But Madonna, perhaps, appropriately biting?
