George Michael rebukes Madonna
LONDON: Now it also seems that British pop legend George Michael has rebuked Madonna for staging her famous onstage kiss with Britney Spears, to sell more copies of her album.
The bizarre episode, when the pop diva smooched with Britney and Christina Aguilera, stunned fans at the MTV music awards, last year. And George is convinced it was just a callous attempt to gain publicity and raise the profile of her ‘American Life’ LP. The cynical star says, “I have great respect for Madonna but I was a bit horrified about that MTV thing.” He added, “What was she doing snogging someone half her age with tits a foot higher than hers? You are Madonna, you don’t need to do this stuff. It really smacked to me of ‘Oh dear, my album isn’t selling’, so within six weeks of them working that out, you see her on stage with Missy Eliot and Christina Aguilera and Britney,” George Michael was quoted as saying by ratethemusic.com
The irate star further expressed his disappointment and said “I just thought she didn’t need to do that. I don’t actually think it’s a bad album. It’s ambitious lyrically for her and I quite like it as a producer.”
