These are some newish photos of Madonna in Florence, Italy last week, where she was filming a new music video or commercial or something. Yes, I’m including a photo of her leather-clad grundle. You’re welcome. Anyway, Madge is still on her Magical MDNA tour, and she’s still making outlandish, crazy demands. Sure, she’s Madonna – insane riders come with the package. She makes a crazy amount of money and she IS crazy. Of course she’s going to have fresh flowers and 20 international phone lines. But did you know that she’s also got a team of cleaners to come in after her so that her DNA can be completely scrubbed from every surface? Um.
If Madonna fans had any crazy notion of nicking some of her DNA from her dressing room, bad luck. The paranoid star, 53, has ordered aides to leave no trace of her after she leaves gigs on her latest world tour.
In true diva style she set up a “sterilisation team” to wipe away any DNA that may have been dropped in her room on hairs, skin or saliva.
Hygiene freak Madge, whose MDNA tour arrives in Coimbra City, Portugal, tomorrow has also told organisers only her and her entourage are allowed backstage passes. Concert promoter Álvaro Ramos, overseeing the Portuguese leg of the spectacle, said: “We have to take extreme care, like I have never seen for any other artist.
“We cannot even look at the dressing room, after it is ready, or even open the door. We can only enter after her sterilisation team has left the room. There will not be any of Madonna’s DNA, any hair, or anything. They will clean up everything. In the end it is all to protect her and make her feel comfortable. I do understand it, but it is taken to extremes.”
Her DNA destruction certainly beats Madonna’s many other precious concert demands in the past, such as ordering a new loo seat at every venue.
The singer will play at the Coimbra City Stadium, where the dressing rooms will be converted by her own staff to stop snoopers.
Álvaro added: “Her team will build everything for her, including fake ceilings and fake walls, so they can ensure that no one has hidden a camera somewhere.”
Last night, a source close to Madonna said: “She is a perfectionist, and expects the best. But then, at her age and with her status, why shouldn’t she?”
I don’t understand the paranoia about this if you’re A) a woman or B) Not wanted for any crimes in which comparative DNA evidence can be used in a court of law. The woman thing – like, if it was a dude who was paranoid about paternity tests or DNA evidence being used to frame him of assault or something, maybe I could understand. MAYBE. But it’s Madonna. Do people really care if you touched the same Kleenex that Madonna touched? Eh.
