Madonna Confirms Rumor Saying She Dated Tupac Shakur

Madonna has confirmed a rumor that spans more than twenty years, admitting she dated rapper Tupac Shakur.

The 56-year-old superstar sat down with shock jock Howard Stern Wednesday, and he pressed her about her past interviews with "Late Show" host David Letterman. Stern noted she sometimes seemed a bit annoyed at him, especially in one 1994 interview where she dropped the F-bomb fourteen times.

"I was in a weird mood that day," she told Stern. "I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up on life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta."

Stern was surprised to hear she dated the rapper. However, Madonna felt those rumors had been out there. The 2007 unauthorized biography "Madonna: Like An Icon" claimed Madonna and the rapper briefly dated before his death in 1996, and "Do The Right Thing" actress Rosie Perez told Wendy Williams last year that she introduced the two celebrities after the 1993 Soul Train Music Awards.

Madonna's comments to Howard Stern mark the first time she's ever directly responded to the rumors.
