Madonna's Diva Demands


Recommended Posts

She isn't dubbed Her Madgesty for nothing.

And Madonna didn't disappoint at her latest show.

With a host of demands befitting the Queen of Pop, the 49-year-old caused a stir at Radio 1's Big Weekend - and made an enemy of the Fratellis.

As well as demanding to be flown from her London home to the gig at Maidstone, Kent, by helicopter - a distance of only 37 miles - she ruffled a few more feathers when she landed...


"Madonna caused her share of backstage ructions when she jetted in for her 20-minute set," says our festival spy.

"As well as her own VIP area, she had a 70-strong entourage and three dressing rooms. Her security was so tight, even hubby Guy Ritchie had trouble getting in!

"She had special Kabbalah water shipped in and demanded bouquets of white roses which remained unopened. While she only ate fresh fruit, the same can't be said of her friends.

"They arrived early and wolfed down free food and booze reserved for the artists.

"Madonna also failed to endear herself to performers by arriving late for rehearsals and forcing everyone else's allocated time slot to be put back. All in all, most people couldn't wait to see the back of her."

The Hard Candy star, who retained her No1 spot in the singles chart last night, also flew in her designer friends, Dolce and Gabbana, from Italy.

On a less extravagant note, Madge dished out goody bags containing... a lollipop, a T-shirt, a badge and sweets. Last of the big spenders, eh?
