Madonna and Prince Make Up (awww...)
Jan. 17-23: Madonna And Prince, Friends Again?
That's Really Week is so accustomed to covering celebrity scandals, feuds, and all-around bad news that we were touched to learn that two of pop music's biggest names have mended their differences..
Madonna was a special guest at Prince's January 18 "Welcome 2 America" concert at Madison Square Garden. The "Like A Virgin" singer hardly went unnoticed..
According to Us magazine, the Purple One acknowledged Madonna during his show, making a joke about the cost of her concert tickets. "I know I'm expensive," he said..
In 2007 things weren't so peachy between the two. Prince dismissed Madge during a London gig, saying that he had more "hits than Madonna's got kids." .
They dated in the '80s, and recorded "Love Song" for Madonna's 1989 album "Like A Prayer." But during the '90s, Madonna made it clear that she and the "Purple Rain" singer did not get along..
Madonna referred to him as a "little troll" and complained that he opted not to eat during a dinner date. "He was just sipping tea, very daintily," according to Us..
We're happy that the queen of pop can cross a name off of her list of nemeses. Maybe she and new CNN personality Piers Morgan will also make amends. Last week, Morgan revealed to Access Hollywood why he and the Material Girl aren't cordial..
Morgan alleges that a lie was the most significant in a series of crimes Madonna committed against him. "You know the worst thing Madonna did to me?" Morgan asked Access Hollywood Billy Bush. "Madonna's publicist once said to me, 'Listen to me, Madonna is not pregnant,' when I was running a newspaper. And I said, ‘Are you sure? She said, ‘Listen to me, Piers. Madonna is not pregnant.'" "The next day, they announced [the news] on a rival newspaper's website," Piers added..
If Morgan's account is true, we would agree that being scooped by a competing publication is never good. But That's Really Week would like to advise Mr. Morgan in the future to not hate the player, but to hate the game. We were hoping there was some real dirt behind this beef..
In related news, Morgan, a former "America's Got Talent" judge, should be happy for the folks at AGT's sister show "American Idol," which opened a news season this week to positive reviews from critics and fans. Britney Spear's new single "Hold It Against Me," came in at No. 1. And if that wasn't enough good news, Elton John and David Furnish celebrated the arrival of their song Zach. Unfortunately, the week also included the sad news of the loss of famed song publisher Don Kirshner..
We hope that next week offers more makeups and good news. See you then..
