It's been less than a month since Madonna surprised Drake with a big, wet kiss on stage at Coachella, and we got to see the rapper's infamous response: him hunched over looking pretty disgusted. Well, Madonna has some things to say about that it—and her comments are just as confusing as the kiss itself.

During an "Ask Anything Chat" for Live with Romeo Saturday Night Online over the weekend, a couple of fans had some burning questions for the 56-year-old pop diva about the kiss. One asked her if Drake, 28, is a good kisser. Madonna's response was a direct quote off of a Katy Perry track, saying "I kissed a girl, and I liked it." She followed that with a wink. Although we're well aware that she has a penchant for kissing performers on stage like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus, that doesn't quite answer the question. Maybe she'll stick to locking lips with female singers going forward after Drake's horrified reaction. You can see her talking about it in the 2:11-minute mark in the video below:

Another fan later asked Madonna what advice she would give her younger self knowing what she knows now. At the 8-minute mark in the video, Madonna fills up a glass with wine, and then says, "Don't kiss Drake no matter how many times he begs you to." It's a weird diss, but if anything, it shows that she's definitely regretted her on-stage decision.

Shortly after Drake's horrified expression spread across the Internet like wildfire, he tried to defend his reaction. He wrote on Instagram, "Don't misinterpret my shock!! I got to make out with the queen Madonna and I feel [100] about that forever."
