Los Angeles: Madonna flashed her derriere to the cameras on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards, but she insists it wasn't a deliberate move to be provocative as she feels everyone has already seen her naked buttocks before.

"I had an inspired wardrobe malfunction moment. As I was walking away, I wasn't mooning -- I just lifted my dress up. Mooning is like naked bu**. Everyone's seen my naked bu** already. Not for a while, not since the 1990s," she told KIIS-FM, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"It's the age of a**, isn't it? It was me having fun and being cheeky, no pun intended," she added.

During the awards show Sunday night, Madonna gave a raunchy performance on "Living for love" and though it seemed to run smoothly, she admitted an essential part of the choreography was forgotten.

"The one thing everyone forgot to do, was tell me when I could sit up (in the harness). So, I'm laying back there, like forever in this super extreme back bend, hanging over the audience," she said.
