Los Angeles: Golden Globe`s notorious host Ricky Gervais was forced to eat his words about Madonna when the `Queen of Pop` took to the stage.

Gervais, who is known for rubbing the celebrities in the wrong way with his comments during the award show, introduced Madonna as "just like a virgin" and coughed to suggest he was being sarcastic.

When Madonna took to the stage, she challenged the host, saying, "If I`m still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don`t you come over here and do something about it?

She then mischievously added, "I haven`t kissed a girl in a few years - on TV."

Gervais pretended to be scared and ran off the stage.

The `Material Girl` also left Elton John smarting by beating him to win the award for the Best Original Song.

John had dropped an F-bomb, saying Madonna had no chance of taking home the trophy. When asked if those were fighting words, John had said, "No, those are accurate words."

To which Madonna said, "May the best man win."
