Anyone see Madonna tonight on The Graham Norton show?

What did you think of her reaction to the Italian guys who made the Madonna dolls? She seemed a bit snobby to me (as usual).

I didn't pay attention to that... that damn accent was just bizarre. What the hell. Isn't she from Detroit?

Had to go see the clip on youtube. Nope, she didn't look too thrilled. It's a shame she couldn't even try to fake it.

I've noticed with the Norton show and when I saw a clip of 20/20 the other night of her directing on the set, that there's a lack of simple manners. No thank you or please, just "do it" or "gimme that."

She was very gracious, or pretending to be - in order to get us to see her awful film. But she could have been nicer to the guys who made the dolls .... did she get to keep them, I think she asked if she could.

I knew he would be geneflecting before her all the time - and the 2 actors from the film have to look so grateful to be there, bet she pissed them off royally during the filming.

Presumably before a show like this Madonna has a meeting with the host to explain how it will go, what she will and won't do or answer, and how she is to be treated - just to promote her wares.

She's a mean, ungrateful cunt. Did you see the part where she rolled her eyes and was yawning when one fan was reading a letter he wrote to her when he was a kid? She's such an asshole. Don't know how she has any fans left.

No, r8 - her people list her demands to Norton's crew to ensure that when Madonna arrives she is not bothered by the little people until she is ready and knows exactly how it will go.

Madonna was pretentious. She's been that way for over 20 years now. She wants to be seen as more than a girl with no college degree from Detroit.

This is exactly how she acted to the guy who presented her flowers. She really is a cunt.

Graham made the comment about there not being any women in the audience. Why? Madonna fans, all gay elderly qweeens, got first dibs on tickets. They filled the audience.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: she has no personality. Never has, never will.

I just watched the show. I am SO not a Madge fan, but she seemed gracious about the dolls, and almost rather sweet. She discreetly mouthed "thank you" to the guys who made them, and she did want to keep them. What more do you expect? I'm sure she gets stalkers all the time, and her security detail has probably told her not to engage at all with anyone who shows obsessive behaviour -- which the dolls certainly do -- so I imagined she had that in the back of her mind. She was fine. She's a little dull, true, but so? My friends are interesting, i don't need her to be.

Thanks, r16

Loved the dolls. Madonna, comes across very stiff and somewhat negative. I didn't recall her having a cat look about her face that she has now. She talks with her eyes down cast. Nerves?

Madonna has actually had a few run ins with stalkers over the years and most recently, I think last summer, at her home in England, where a stalker jumped over the gate and got past security. Haven't yet seen this show but I guess what happened is some guys made Madonna dolls and she was supposed to do what exactly? My god, I hope Gaga was taking a lesson because THAT bitch is boring and will be slinging hash in Denny's by the end of the decade! She's already so played out that nobody is paying attention to her anymore while Madonna is prepping a new world tour which will likely be, yet again, the highest grossing tour EVER.

by Anonymousreply 2501/15/2012

R25 says "Haven't yet seen this show"

And yet you're defending her terrible behavior, AND attacking Lady GaGa (which has nothing to do with this thread). Are you suffering from A serious brain injury?

She's not a terribly gracious person, and Norton's kissing up was incredibly annoying.

Her puffy face had too much filler in it. She looked like a blonde chipmunk with the mumps.

by Anonymousreply 3101/15/2012

She got more gracious and respectful to the doll guys by the end of that segment, and she did mouth "thank you" and asked for the glasses that went with the latest doll.

The part of the show where the actors read a translation from Hungarian of a Madonna interview was hilarious. "In America, it is not considered to be mental illness for a woman to stalk her prey in the setting of a discotheque."

Question: Why would a Madonna troll take the time to find BBC America in their list of hundreds of channels? Why would a Madonna troll watch a tv interview about Madonna for 45 minutes?

Oh they can post their own idiot observations and discuss ad infinitum for an artist they supposedly believe to be "over".

Get a hobby hons. There is a whole world out there waiting for you to do something constructive with. Starting yet another thread about Madonna is just sad.

Great interview IMO. Madonna was relaxed and in a jovial mood. There was plenty of fun banter, and the Brits obviously LOVE Madonna. Don't know why she feels the need to re-capture the American audiences. After all, we're all about the talentless whore Kim Kardashian, the religious nut job Tim Tebow and ever-dyke-like Justin Bieber.

by Anonymousreply 3401/15/2012

damn, this is how bs gets started.

She was fine on the show.

She was relaxed. And fun.

The dolls? They were Barbie's dressed up in imitation clothing that Madonna wore. Nothing more. It was cute, but what the fuck is the woman going to do with a non-commissioned doll??

Did any of you even watch the interview?

by Anonymousreply 3501/15/2012

I'm not a fan of Madonna but even I don't take her at face value. I thought she was funny and doing a bit of a sly take on her public persona - she can obviously be funny and crack jokes as she did with Norton when she brought up her recent skiing holiday.

I mean, isn't the joke that she acts more like The Queen than The Queen? I thought it was a joke that she's so hard to please and acts a bit like a dominatrix with her fans. It's also a sly assertion of how much of a creative perfectionist she really is. I mean, she is a true global superstar - I kind of like her perched high above the rest and instead of fawning all over her fans and everything they do she more or less says, "Try harder." It's meant to be funny, isn't it? Even if it is true?

The red chair bit is a regular gag on Norton's show and usually no one survives it or gets very far into their stories. So she did show real warmth towards her fans when she initially refused to tip them backwards in the chair and insisted on hearing them out.

I thought Norton did a good job with her. If you had seen another British chat show host, Jonathan Ross, interview Streisand a few years back you'd realise what a terrific job Norton did with Madonna. And it was hilarious when he revealed his dog was named Madge. So...he didn't pull all his punches.

She acted graciously, considering those two were over-obsessed Madonna fans.

She was fine in the interview too, and had a good and natural rapport with the two actors from her film.

Stop projecting, people.

you're absolutely correct, r36. People must dumb, blind and deaf if they didn't get the red chair thing. It's a GIMMICK!

And the Romanian guy was in on it. He was placed at the end of the last segment of the show, intentionally, and his purple prose was supposed to kick the chair. Which it did.

It was all in good humour.

Just out of curiosity, how did Ross fail the Streisand interview? What went wrong?

I'm gonna defend that "boring moron". Her lack of education really comes through when she's being interviewed. She has to close her eyes to focus on saying something that makes sense, she always seems to strain. She's a good business women but she's never shown herself to be a great intellect.

What r40 said.

I've concluded that some superstars are interesting to me only when they're performing.

Streisand, Madonna, Sophia Loren, Russell Crowe all can mezmorize me when I'm watching them perform, however, they have just the opposite effect when I see them "being themselves."

My #1 example of this was Streisand to Winfrey going on about how her outdoor landscapes must match her interior decorations.

My eyes glazed over, I hung in for a few more seconds, then shut it off to stimulate myself by watching paint dry

by Anonymousreply 5801/15/2012

I know several people that have worked with Madonna. Three that were on the AD staff of that movie she and Rupert Everett did together and one that did a tour with her. The girl that did her tour said that Madge would literally shove people out of her way while walking and that she was a rude vile person. The three that worked on the movie said she was a cunt and one of them got into vicious verbal battles with Rupert which somehow made him more inclined to tolerate her than some of the other people on set.

I have read so many on this site defend her and praise her but really if your thing is to love the kind of people that would enjoy treating you like dirt then I guess I understand.

r59, I seriously doubt that most of the people who are Madonna fans need to be told of her rude behavior and lack of manners. Most of her fans judge her by her work/artistic accomplishments - the fascinating career, the music, the videos, the tours. Most of her fans are fully aware she is a bitch/cunt. I don't think her critics/detractors/haters on this site get that. Personally, I know I wouldn't want to be in the same room with her if she weren't performing.

It amazes me that people judge celebrities like they would people they would want to spend time with on a personal/private basis. To be a celebrity - you have to be wholly narcissistic and plenty of superficial and self-absorbed. There are many celebrities who can reign that in and pretend to be something other than just for themselves. You think spending a day with, say, Janet Jackson would be fun? I'd rather listen to her music and know that she is working hard for my attention - and money.

Yes. Beyond gracious. Madonna could have at least ACTED like she liked them. She got so much shit for her flowers incident. I seriously believe she's really ticked about the state of her career. She's just an angry cunt. She wasn't like this in public a few years ago. Something flew up her ass in the last year. Maybe it's Lady Gaga taking over. Maybe it's the bad reviews of her piece of shit film. Maybe it's her age. I don't know. She has upped the cunt and is acting like she did 20 years ago. What happened to all her Kabbalah teachings?
