At Red Lights, Madonna Blows

11/5/2006 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna may be trying to save the African children, but she's definitely not looking out for New York pedestrians.The Material Mama and her drivers, one of whom is a retired cop whose brother is a state senator, have, according to Page Six, been breaking just about every traffic rule in existence -- going through red lights, making illegal U-turns, "burning rubber on major thoroughfares," and generally causing traffic havoc all over town.

In fact, a Post reporter says that she witnessed Madge's entourage running 40 red lights in just four days. She's been on a relentless tour of the city's talk shows to defend her controversial adoption of little baby David. One of the drivers, who goes by the name Abel, explained, "Some days she gets in back and says, 'Abel, I don't want to be followed' - and I know what to do." Abel adds, indiscreetly, "She enjoys this. She likes it when we do bad things." The Post did not have a response from Madonna's reps at press time.


Shanna to Travis: I Quit This Bitch


To celebrate her split from Travis Barker, Shanna Moakler threw herself a much hyped "divorce party" in Las Vegas at the Bellagio's Light club. The couple, which has been airing their dirty laundry on MySpace, filed for divorce in August. According to People, the highlight of the night was a three-tiered cake with a knife-wielding bride on top and a bloody groom at the bottom.

"I'm really doing it ... to have closure and celebrate being single again and start a new chapter in my life," Moakler says about the party. "I don't have any regrets about doing it. At the end of the day, this isn't the worst thing in my life. People go through it every day. This is how I'm showing the world that divorce is okay. It doesn't have to be the end of your life."

Welcome Home, Kylie


Aussies gave Kylie Minogue a warm welcome when she touched down in Sydney today. The pop princess says she's excited about hitting the road to finish up her Showgirl tour, which was postponed last year after she found out she had breast cancer. Kylie was so happy to be home that The Sydney Morning Herald spotted her at the airport jumping around and clapping her hands. "I feel really inspired, more than I have for quite a while," she says. "I'm not a year out of recovery and I'm recording and doing photo shoots ... I've hardly stopped." Her comeback performance is set for Nov. 11.

English Confuses Jackie Chan


Actions speak louder than words for Jackie Chan, who admits that speaking English is sometimes hard for him. On his website, Chan says he's often frustrated with the dialogue on the set of "Rush Hour 3" and feels his roles are limited because he can't quite grasp the English language. "To me, action scenes are so easy, but dialogue scenes drive me crazy. The directors and producers want me to speak everything perfectly," he says. "Sometimes when a word is in the past tense or plural, I get confused. It is hard to remember lengthy dialogue and still sound natural."

Madonna's the sh*t. No other pop star's lasted as long as she has. The fact that you're still talking about her validates that...

just confirms everything i've ever thought about Madonna. She puts on this fake persona when she's really just a piece of sh*t who thinks she's better than everyone else. i assume new york's finest will soon be putting a stop to this before she kills one of us mere mortals?

Ok    

Madonna thinks she can get away with everything. I hate people like that! She should just go back to England and keep her horse mouth shut from now on.

Quotes about Shanna...

Hmm looks like she has thrown this type of party before and is a class act around her infants...

What a pathetic SKANK!

"She hands the baby to one of De La Hoya's staffers, backs 15 feet from the ring and lights a cigarette", Sports Illustrated, Jun. 19, '00, p. 83

"Oscar De La Hoya's relationship with actress-girlfriend Shanna Moakler ended on a sour note when Moakler changed the locks on the house she shared with De La Hoya, then threw a party to celebrate her independence. De La Hoya countered that Moakler was a scheming gold digger who infuriated him by smoking in his and the baby's presence", Philadelphia Daily News, Jun. 23, '01

Just so you know, the traffic laws are completely different in London. Having been a New Yorker for years it is mind boggling how the British just step into a cross walk & the cars must be prepared to stop on a dime.

Yes, that's right. Pedestrians rule in London!

Madge does not get by with that crap in London.

Well, she's Madonna and should continue to get away with everything she wants right?

WRONG...nail that skanky little ho to the cross. She really needs to be knocked down off her pedestal. I can't believe the losers that worship her. Stop already...then maybe she will go away.

#3 are you incapable of getting your point across without the use of racial slurs?
...and I suppose you'll still be bitching about Jackie Chan's acting all the way up to the box office where you give him your money, right?

just a matter of time before one of her driver's hits and either maims or kills a NY pedestrian. then you can pretty much see half her estate dissolve away in the impending lawsuit. maybe then she can hit the talk show circuit to once again defend and rationalize her spurious actions. everything she does is for self-promotion. there's not a genuine bone in her over-yogacized bod.

madonna, well, pay back is her having to see that picture on page six, cause no matter how much money she has, she looks like baby jane hudson ..(aka betty davis character) ....madonna has no class at all. she is truly a publicity whore, adopting the kid, whatever it takes to get noticied, she is an older and uglier paris hilton, the age thing is going to be a big deal to her, you can see it on her face now , she will be destroyed by it, its going to be a hard fall, cause all of her "spitiuality bullsh*t" is just that, bullsh*t, and she has no character or soul to carry her through life
