Media-Whore D'Oeuvres





Madonna bosses around crowd at MoMA event


"Madonna managed to boss around the entire crowd at MoMA on Wednesday night — even instructing guests including Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany, Grace Coddington, Doutzen Kroes, David Chang and Jimmy Iovine on when to put their hands together by barking, 'Applause moment!'
Madge was at the museum to present a WSJ Innovator Award to dancer Lil Buck, 26, whom she discovered in a contest and brought on tour. But when the Material Girl — looking sexy at 56 in Miu Miu — didn’t get the glowing reception she apparently wanted at the beginning of her remarks, she finally sighed, 'I’ll tell you when there are applause moments. You need help. This is a museum crowd.' She then peppered her presentation with the 'Applause moment' command, which effectively coaxed clapping. She also warned Valentino’s partner in the audience, expert Instagrammer Giancarlo Giammetti, to 'please put your phone away, sir.' And she poked fun at her predilection for seducing backup dancers by saying with a wink, 'Everybody knows I have an affinity for dancers — a sympathetic nerve, so to speak.'" (P6)
