Here is my regular spot where I wade through the effluent of celebrity news to scoop out the very best of modern tittle tattle just for you!Madonna found herself at the centre of a media storm last week when it was revealed that the man in her music video "Papa Don't Preach" was in fact an actor and not her real father. In a interview the pop legend claimed that she was "In no way trying to fool anyone". She went on to say that " This was not a documentary of my life... I may have drawn on some of my own experiences... but this was essentially the story of every girl in this situation" Despite her assurances however, experts have confirmed that the female in the music video is most definitely Madonna.
Fans from all over the world have posted comments on the official Madonna fan-site pledging support for the actor/singer, while others have said they feel extremely let down by the 85 year old. One fan said "I had my suspicions at the time, but just put it down to random resemblance & intellectual frailty, now I feel completely used!" Madonna has publicly shrugged off charges of fraud & gross negligence saying "Look this video was made in the 80s, it's ancient history, as far as I'm concerned it's so over!" The British Prime Sir Anthony Head has hit back saying " War crimes were committed decades ago, but that doesn't mean the perpetrators should be absolved of all guilt"
The actor who played Madonna's father, real name Danny Aiello claims he was tricked into doing the video. Mr Aiello said "I thought I was shooting a video with my real daughter, then they brought this blond broad on... I didn't know who the hell she was...the crew said she was a stand-in used to rehearse the shots and that my real daughter would be brought in later, that turned out to be a load of baloney!"
Madonna wasn't available for comment last night at her home in South Shields, County Durham
That's nearly all folks, it just remains to say that Madonna qualifies to be in this blog because she was in the films Dick Tracy & Die Another Day - both films were sort of about superheroes!
