- Seems like getting a Madonna interview is a hard thing. The singer had a day of interviews to promote her "Celebration" CD. Here's how it went.
When Madonna arrived (late, obviously) at the Soho Hotel for a round of (no doubt) in depth interviews, she went into full diva mode.
Unimpressed by the interview area, Madge insisted that the furniture and lighting was just all wrong, darling.
Cue the crew who were forced to rearrange everything from the green chair to the rigging of the lights, all with the air conditioning turned off.
A TV source told the Mirror: "We knew Madonna was tough but had no idea she was quite so exacting. We had had specifications on lighting and camera angles before she arrived. But she took one look at the chair and complained it was the wrong colour. Then she said the red lighting – which took ages to put up – was all wrong too. Everyone was stuck in this room sweating under the TV lights while we waited for her to give the thumbs up. We had been warned not to turn on the aircon because it could affect her vocal cords. It was ridiculous."
Madonna's spokeswoman said: "Madonna was an ultimate professional throughout her day of interviews. And her favourite one was GMTV."
