MADONNA checked in to the Hotel Du Cap on the Cap d’Antibes yesterday afternoon with a massive entourage – which includes daughter Lourdes and son Rocco and, of course, French “lover” Brahim Zaibat.
They’re staying in the Eden Roc complex which has views out over the sea and is where the pool is, but the only problem is the paps perch like seagulls on the rocks there just to the right of the hotel. I used to go for BBQs there in the evenings and it was great having the same views for free that gazzillionaires had paid on average €10,000 a night for.
I was down at the hotel the other weekend and even in the pool bar right now with the sea breeze coming in off the med, it’s pushing forty degrees (that’s in the hundreds) so as hilarious as she looks in this sun-proof get up, there’s a very real chance of lily-white Madge burning.
I can’t believe she even wore trainers in the sea though, must have been a thoroughly uncomfortable experience. I get the impression that for all her four hour a day workouts Madonna isn’t a very confident swimmer and would be more comfortable had she snatched that random kid’s water wings.
Bless her clinging on to that young man like an old biddy crossing the road.
But here’s the best bit. This old French guy who clearly has no idea who this crazy American lady is wearing all her clothes in the sea with her son! – Sacre bleu!
She’s performing in Nice tonight and I’m going to be going along.
Read my full report here tomorrow.
