On Tuesday night, Madonna finally bowed to pressure and removed the Swastica that had been superimposed on the French National Front leader Marine Le Pen's face during the video backdrop for Nobody Knows Me for the duration of her MDNA tour. Sneaky old bag. She knew that replacing it with a question mark would generate just as much publicity as keeping it there, plus, you really don't want Marine's very anti-American flying monkeys descending on your five-star hotel in the middle of the night and ruining your party with your ridiculously hot French toyboy. The 54-year-old also apologised to frenemy Elton John during the sweltering Southern France gig.  "I'm going to dedicate this next song to Mr. Elton John. I know he's a big fan of mine" before winking and adding: "But you know what? I forgive him. You've gotta start somewhere" before launching into 'Masterpiece'.
Drama erupted between the two ageing divas after that song, from her directional debut movie W.E, beat Elton’s animated film Gnomeo and Juliet to win a Golden Globe award. Elton’s husband David wrote on Facebook: "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!! Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit.
"Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is. [sic]"
After the final European gig on Tuesday, the Material Girl spent her time during the after-party gyrating for lover Brahim Zaibat on a stripper pole.
"Madonna turned up with 150 people in total, including her daughter Lourdes," says a source at the Billionaire Club in Monaco.
"At 5pm in the afternoon, someone from her entourage rang the club and said she'd only came if they put in a wooden dance-floor.
"She didn't want to go unless they had that.
"The club pulled some strings and put all that in and then when she turned up she didn't even set foot on it. Instead she spent the evening kissing Brahim and swinging around one of the stripper poles suggestively."
The star and her entourage ran up a £125,000 bill at the Monaco-based club before leaving for her five-star hotel on the Cap d'Antibes.

    OK then. Madonna is extraordinary and has genuinely given us so much. I would like to focus on that instead of what her last expressions are at the moment. There will NEVER be a ‘Greatest Hits’ saddo tour. This is it. Enjoy BoMo. (She give it up Elt though – she won the award!!)

  2. Shana says:

    She is completely fucking loathsome, though. Sagging boobs, ass, guns, balaklava’s in protest (where were your lawyers?), Nazi’s now. You’re not an artist, luv, but an opportunist riding on someone elses ideas that you took partial credit for.

    Have to see both sides of the story.

  3. BOHOMOTH says:

    Haha you’re all balance Shan.

    I dunno if a Greatest Hits tour would be a saddo tour? I’d go. Betcha any money she does it for her 60th…

  4. Shana says:

    Madonna is the most savvy woman I never met. You will get a greatest hits when you see her – she’s not stupid – she knows her fans. She is getting more ‘fuck you’ as she’s getting older (like Elton). I’m just going with it and keep my mind open. She’s not mean at heart.

    Can’t wait to see the show through your eyes. Lucky bugger!!!
