In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Madonna let slip a little secret (that she thought was common knowledge): the Material Girl dated Tupac Shakur for about a year shortly before his death in 1996. She was on Stern’s show to promote her Rebel Heart album, which has already seen her pair up with the likes of Mike Tyson and Kanye West.

The romance happened at a time when Madonna was “feeling very gangster,” she told Stern. Referencing her infamous 1994 appearance on David Letterman, Madonna said “I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time, and the thing is, he got me all riled up about life in general.” Have a listen to the show below, or revisit the Letterman interview and check out an epic picture of Tupac, Madonna, and Sting.
