Madonna postpones birthday bash due to sprain and strainAugust 11th, 2008 - 7:51 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug 11 (ANI): Queen of pop Madonna has had to postpone celebrations for her 50th birthday after spraining her left ankle.
Taking the latest mishap to be a sort of warning to cool down a bit, she decided to push back the lavish do, that she had planned for around 50 select guests at her country estate in Wiltshire, till after two weeks.
The guests will include officials from Malawi who helped with her adoption of David Banda.
“Plans are very hush-hush but Madonna is definitely going to celebrate her milestone in style, Daily Mirror reported.
“Unfortunately not everything has gone as expected as she’’s had many other things on her mind - not least rehearsals for her Sticky And Sweet tour. On top of all the stress of this, she twisted her ankle over the weekend. She views this as a sign that perhaps she should postpone the formal birthday bash and play it by ear instead.
“Madonna now reckons it”ll go ahead during a three-day break in the tour towards the end of the month, not next weekend.
“Guy wants it to be traditional and British. He has already ordered crate-loads of real ales.
“He’’s also arranged for a folk band to play and the people invited are all pretty old school - Gwyneth Paltrow, Stella McCartney and Trudie Styler - basically friends Madonna’’s known for years.
“Everyone else will be immediate friends and family, plus a few people from Malawi that Madonna will be flying out. A few of her Kabbalah associates are also expected and Madonna’’s made sure that only Kabbalah water will be served,” it was added.
The singer, who was pictured in New York at the weekend with a bandaged left ankle, will be having a small birthday celebration on August 16.
After a small, family get-together, she is expected to hit the town for a few glasses of pink bubbly. (ANI)
