Madonna to Adam 'MCA' Yauch

You Were an Inspiration

5/5/2012 12:30 PM PDT UPDATED: 5/5/2012 1:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

and Adam "MCA" Yauch toured together all the way back in the 1980s ... and she calls the rapper a one of a kind performer and an inspiration to her career.

The queen of pop told the AP she felt the Beastie Boys were "integral to the musical revolution that was happening to me at the time." She called his death sad and asked God to bless his family.

The Beastie Boys opened for Madonna during her 1985 Virgin Tour.

Yauch died on Friday after a long battle with cancer, just one month after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

He was 47.

Throwback kid    

Madonna is an ispiration too! She's an inspiration to 52 year old Grandmothers. Yes, even in your 50's you are never too old to get a couple of facelifts, then load your face with botox , and then dress like a 25 year old and make a total fool of yourself while you dance on stage with guys who are young enough to be your kids. I wonder when was the last time Madonna had any contact with Adam? probably around the time she was still hanging out with Dennis Rodman, remember that one?

Instead of TMZ's version of Madonna's quote to make her look like an A-Hole her actual quote was this.

"The Beastie Boys were one of a kind! And so was Adam! They were all an important part of my musical history. And integral to the musical revolution that was happening at the time," mega-star Madonna said in statement obtained by MTV News after Yauch passed away on Friday (May 4) after a long battle with cancer. "I'm very sad to hear about Adam's passing. G*D bless him and his family."

She didn't make it about her as TMZ would have you believe, she made it all about Adam. And those are the facts.

Of course, leave it to madge to weasel her way into the spotlight. Whatever it takes to draw the attention to herself, I guess...... even if it is a dead guy. She's so pathetic.
