Anything anyone can do, Madonna can do better.
Forget pop pup Miley WhoCouldCareLess – the Queen of pop can hang her coated tongue out of her mouth and get down to a bit of good old-fashioned sword-swallowing with the best of them.
She posted the above photo on instagram this week with the following message: “beware of Evil Tongue ! Assassinating a persons character is a form of Murder!”.
We get it – don’t mess with Madge, but the 55-year-old Bay City, Michigan-born star is at her most endearing when she’s actually just being human like the rest of us normals – fending off her kids when she’s busy and wishing it was socially-acceptable to drink wine for breakfast.
Em did a ‘phone interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper this week and to promote it she made a video of herself cleaning the house in her dressing gown:
Yeah, I know, in reality she has a fleet of 22-year-old muscled, double-jointed French boys to lick her dusty nooks and crannies clean.
But during the actual interview on air, her son Rocco Richie, 13, burst into the room and started going on at her when she was trying to get some work done.
I’ve been there, many times.
This forced Vadge to stop what she was saying and exhaustedly snap, ‘Rocco just wait until I’m done, okay?’ (27 second mark), before apologising profusely and insisting to Anderson when he asked if she wanted to end the interview; ‘Oh no, it’s okay, he can just wait, Rocco’s always waiting’.
Teenagers are one irritation that you can’t do anything about Madge, unfortunately.
Still, for those other uncomfortable itches we all face in life, there is an answer…
