Madonna Helps Fan Propose, Gives Marital Advice

Ragnar Singsaas/WireImage(AMSTERDAM) -- For many, proposing marriage is a terrifying task. But one lucky woman got help from Madonna before she popped the question to her boyfriend in front of several hundred thousand people.

Halfway through Madonna’s July 8 concert in Amsterdam, she announced that she heard a rumor that someone was going to propose that night. A woman in the front row raised her hand and the “Like a Virgin” singer handed her the microphone so the arena, and now the world thanks to YouTube, could hear it.

“Is that the man you love?” Madonna asked the woman.

“Do you love her?  Huh?  Very much?” the singer demanded of the guy.

Then Madonna, who has been married and divorced twice, walked the woman through the marriage proposal.

“Do it with feeling, from the heart, baby,” Madonna told the woman.

After the man said "yes" and the singer told them to “kiss with tongue,” she gave them more advice.

“Never go to bed angry, OK?” the singer said.

“Two pieces of advice.  Sorry,” she added. “Learn to say the word, ‘I f**ked up.’”

As the crowd cheered, the singer corrected herself saying, “That’s more than one word.” She then topped off the proposal by dedicating a song to the happy couple.

The 42-year old actor popped the question to his Brazilian girlfriend of five years on Christmas Day.

McConaughey tweeted a picture of the couple kissing in front of a Christmas tree with this message: “Just asked Camila to marry me, #MerryChristmas.”

Carrie Ann Inaba Accepts Surprise On-Air Marriage Proposal

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK ) -- Carrie Ann Inaba has a new dance partner for life.  The Dancing with the Stars judge got engaged while guest hosting Live! with Regis and Kelly Thursday morning.  At the end of the episode, her boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan, walked onto the set while the lights dimmed and violinists began to play.  The 39-year-old Sloan popped the question and the 43-year-old Inaba, tearing up, happily accepted.

The timing of the proposal was rather ironic, since earlier in the episode, Inaba told Regis Philbin there was no truth to rumors she was engaged.
