The Queen of Pop is crowning a princess!

Yes, Madonna is a fan of Taylor Swift's music, and she can't hide it. The 56-year-old icon told Australia's Network Nine's Today, "It's good to have princesses [of pop]. It means there's lots of pretty dresses around. I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs. I can't get them out of my head."

You're certainly not alone Madonna!

The "Shake It Off" singer can’t believe the compliment that came from the "Material Girl." Swift took to Tumblr on Wednesday to thank the queen for this honor, "Thanks, now I'm dead."

Not knowing how to deal with the attention, Swift tags it as "Be cool Taylor stop being embarrassing."

Although Swift is trying to keep it together now, she did not say that Madonna is her role model in music when asked by Time back in November. "We're taught to find examples for the way we want our lives to wind up,” she said. "But I can't find anyone, really, who's had the same career trajectory as mine."

She went on, "I just struggle to find a woman in music who hasn't been completely picked apart by the media, or scrutinized and criticized for aging, or criticized for fighting aging—it just seems to be much more difficult to be a woman in music and to grow older."

Madonna has been criticized for fighting her age with NSFW pics and topless photoshoots, and while this may be a reason that Swift did not mention her in the interview, it certainly looks like Swift is at the very least, a fan of hers!
