Funk legend Nile Rodgers has revealed he sent Madonna into a fury — by not trying to bed her.
Nile, 60, told how Madge, 54, was upset that he never made a pass at her when producing her 20 million-selling Like A Virgin album in the 1980s.
The legendary guitarist — who features on Daft Punk’s No 1 hit Get Lucky — revealed: “I was standing at an elevator when she goes, ‘Why don’t you want to f*** me?’
“I was like, ‘What did you just say to me?’ She was wondering why I had not propositioned her. She couldn’t understand that. It was like, ‘Everybody wants me’.”
Explaining his position, he added: “One time I slept with a really beautiful artist I was working with and it was a really wrong thing to do. So, I didn’t work like that.”
But he said Madonna was always one of his best pals, adding: “I grew as close to Madonna as I’ve ever been to a woman without being romantically involved.
“She was the most driven person. The day I met her she said, ‘I’m going to be a really big superstar’.”
The US musician also revealed that Madge inspired him to quit booze and drugs — after he passed out at her 38th birthday party.
He said: “I don’t remember any of this. But I was told I was carried out of Madonna’s house.
“It was the most embarrassing night of my life. I have never had a drink or taken drugs since.”
