Madonna’s friendship with Bernhard turns sourJuly 2nd, 2008 - 1:12 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 2 (IANS) Pop superstar Madonna’s friendship with Sandra Bernhard turned sour after the comedienne slammed the singer in a recent stand up routine. The two were close friends in the 80s and Bernhard had once famously joked that she had slept with Madonna and her first husband Sean Penn. But recently Bernhard turned against Madonna during a show when a fan from the audience inquired about their friendship, contactmusic.com reports.
The 53-year-old comedienne quickly quipped she no longer considers herself akin to the star.
Talking about Bernhard’s tirade against Madonna, columnist Shinan Govani said: “She (Bernhard) descended into this mad, dark, five-minute freestyle, where she mercilessly mocked the queen of pop by repeatedly chanting, ‘We only got four minutes to save the world’, (and) at one point screamed, ‘My chicken is raw!’ After all that, she paused pregnantly and asked, deadpan: ‘Does that answer your question?’”
She added: “Sandra began to crap on all the celebrities who like to brag that they ‘work out three hours a day, like Madonna,’ she said, ‘like Gwyneth Paltrow’.”
