Angelina Jolie still hates Madonna, and their bitch-fight will go down at the Globes

Angelina Jolie and Madonna have hated each other for years. Well… maybe “hate” is the wrong word. I personally think that Angelina views Madonna as a wannabe, an annoyance, a try-hard and a dilettante. And I personally think that in 2006, Madonna decided her latest incarnation was going to be as “Angelina Jolie” or some half-hearted, Jolie-esque figure. Madonna decided to focus her efforts in Malawi, where she first “adopted” David, and then Mercy. Incidentally, Madge also did a ton of photo ops for her Malawian charity (Raising Malawi), with the idea that she would build some huge school there, but earlier this year, the charity pulled out after losing millions of dollars, likely because Madge staffed the charity with grifters and con artists. In the long run, Madge’s efforts in Malawi were deeply offensive – she did not follow through on any of her promises, she “adopted” two children by basically bribing and paying off Malawian officials, and she posed for photos. Lots and lots of photos.

Back in 2006-07, Angelina was asked about the Madonna-Malawi situation in an interview. Angelina was quoted as saying, “Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where (David) was born. It’s a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.” Angelina later retracted (partially) that sentiment, telling People Magazine, “The article included many falsehoods. I said many positive things that were omitted. I feel we must focus on the present and I encourage everyone to be supportive so that every child can adjust nicely to their new home. I have been horrified by the attacks she’s been subjected to. All that should count is the happiness of her little David.” I should also point out that I remember Madonna saying some veiled criticism of Angelina around this time, but I can’t find the quotes right now.

Anyway, as the years have gone by, Madonna and Angelina never seem to be in the same place at the same time, which I tend to think irritates the hell out of Madge. When Madge was married to Guy Ritchie, Guy and Brad were still tight and they would hang out whenever everybody was in London, but Angelina and Madge still never met. This awards season, Madonna’s W.E. is up for some technical and music awards at the Golden Globes, and probably some other awards shows. And Angelina’s In the Land of Blood and Honey is up for the GG Best Foreign Film too. So Madge and Angelina will be at the same awards ceremony at long last. What will happen? Star Magazine claims that if they meet, Angelina is totally going to cut a bitch:

As their films face off in theaters, a battle is brewing between director divas Angelina Jolie and Madonna.

“Angie’s been taking potshots at Madonna every chance she gets,” a source tells Star. Angelina is up in arms because people have been drawing comparisons between her and Madonna – who’s been criticized for such cinematic failures as Swept Away, Body of Evidence and most recently, W.E.

“Angie considers Madonna a nuisance and a distraction from her own work. She’s said Madonna has no talent whatsoever for filmmaking and that W.E. is a big-screen joke.”

But Madonna is taking the high road, trying to foster a friendship with her fellow female director.

“Madonna reached out to Angie, suggesting they get together to discuss moviemaking,” the source explains. “But Angie just didn’t see any upside to meeting up.”

As the Hollywood awards season gets underway, the tension is bound to rise. While W.E. earned two Golden Globe nods, Angelina’s In the Land of Blood and Honey was nominated for the Best foreign language film.

“Angie’s gunning to score big,” the source says. “She doesn’t think Madonna has a chance. But she wants awards – that’s all the validation she needs.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Madonna’s rep told Gossip Cop that the story is “totally fabricated” nonsense, and GC’s “source close to Jolie” says that “there’s been absolutely no tension between her and Madonna – about their movies or otherwise.” I want to think that Madonna isn’t even on Angelina’s radar, but I think Angelina acknowledges Madonna’s existence, and she’ll probably try to actively avoid Madge, like always. It will all depend on how close the Jolie-Pitts are to Madonna’s table, I think.

    U know who had a story about this first, laineygossip… Sometime I think the tabs feeds off the blogs

    • lisa says:

      LOL I saw that story too. And seriously why in the world would Angie start or finish a fight with Madonna.. based on what exactly.

      They don’t run in the same circles and are not friends. So were is the connection and hate. And yes the tabloids read the blogs. But there have been no discussion about Angie and Madonna. But I guess Angie has to be pitted against someone or everyone.

      Never heard her say a nasty thing about anyone. and never heard anyone that know her or have ever met her (Angelina) say a negative thing. ever. but that doesn’t sell magazine does it

      I hope the meet and embrace and smile big for the cameras. another BS story.

      • My NYResolution says:

        Agreed. Its one of the things I really like and respect about Angelina. She is real and never has a bad word to say about anyone, no matter how much she has been put through or attacked. She doesn’t feel the need to compete and is extremely non-competitive compared to other female celebs. She doesn’t bother because she knows she has nothing to prove. To anyone. She is extremely classy and never says a bad word to or about anyone. Madonna whilst a great singer singer has no class and cannot compete.

  2. Jayna says:

    Seriously? Like Angie would care or say the stuff about Madonna’s film. I could make up better Angie statements that are more believable.

    Re the children, however it went down, it’s obvious Madonna is a great mother and David and Mercy are lucky and she has always done her best to keep her kids out of the glare of the paps while still young.

    Why make a feud between women where there is probably none? Celebrate two women putting out movies in the good ol boys club of movie-making. I just saw three bad movies this past two months by male directors. Woman power.

  3. Nev says:

    you mean Angelina isn’t on Madonna’s radar.

    two wealthy superstars who can adopt children easily from other countries.

    same cloth.

    • Goop says:

      Angie went through normal legal channels to adopt her children. She didn’t pick them out and then force their orphanages, families and the government to allow her to adopt them.

      • Bratt says:

        excuse me but where are you getting your information? maddox adoption was questionable whole alot of people went to jail. Zahara mother ended up being alive and then there Pax and that too my Dear is questionable…basically every part of everything Angelina is envolved in is questionable..Even her humariantarian act is questionable

    • Pu-leez says:

      Angie went thru ‘normal legal channels’ ? BULL!! the ‘agency’ that she used for Maddox was closed and director prosecuted for fraud. The mother of Zahara did not die of aids per Angie the co artist story. She is very much alive. Her last adopted child was 3 at the time and she not only changed his name, she neither spoke his language nor ‘ stayed home to have him get settled’ – she started filming a movie right away and left him with nannies. Look at most of his photos – hardly a happy child. It is also illegal for a single foreigner to adopt a child. Not married to Brad is she? She is a hypocrite at best and a child collector for publicity at the worst. Her adoptions were not done thru legal channels at all. Period.

      • Emma - the JP lover says:

        So, is your claim then that 100% of the parents of children in American orphanages are dead? If that were the case, we wouldn’t have stories of American adopted children tracking down their ‘Birth Parents’ when they become adults.

        And surely you know by now that the Jolie-Pitts travel as a family when they’re filming, so Angie couldn’t have possibly “left Pax with Nannies and went off to make a film.”

        For whatever reasons, all three of Angie and Brad’s adopted children were given up for adoption, just like the children in American orphanages. Many teenage girls give their babies up for adoption, as well as those who have kids out of rape, incest, or those girls and women who just aren’t mentally, emotionally, or financially able to care for their children. And just like situations in America, in some cases, the grandparents of adopted kids just aren’t aware that their grand kids were put up for adoption. While in other cases, the parents of the pregnant mother encourage the adoption option. Sometimes, adoption is the only option because neither the pregnant mother or the grandparents are able to care for the child.

        The difference between Angie and Madonna is that Angie went through the proper channels to adopt her children, and Madonna basically went to Malawi and said “I want that one” without going through any proper or legal system first. If so, she wouldn’t have had a Malawi Judge threatening to intercede and stop her adoption process (with David). The Judge’s argument was that Malawi Law prevented foreign adoption of Malawi children. The Malawi Government was swayed by Madonna’s money and promise to build a school, etc.

        Angie didn’t promise anything during her adoption processes. Her action of building clinics in each of the adoptive countries was to tie her adoptive children to their birth countries. When they’re older, the children will overseas those clinics and/or Foundations established in their names. I personally think that’s awesome.

    Team Angie… All day long.

    • brin says:

      Definitely Team Angelina on this one.
      I’m surprised Madonna’s movie got noms.

      • Tiffany says:

        Madonna’s movie was only nominated for songs, but they won’t be eligible for Oscars because the songs don’t meet the qualifications. The Golden Globes aren’t very prestigious (remember nominations for The Tourist?), sometimes the GGs just want stars in the seats. That is why Madonna’s songs got nominated, but most likely she won’t be nominated for any other awards.

    • David says:

      I agree

  5. spinner says:

    Madonna would eat Angie for breakfast & wash her down with tea.

    • Bite me says:

      What makes u say that

    • Janet says:

      You wish. Madonna cant compete with Jolie on any level.

    • Mourning the Death of Music says:

      What, with her crotch-of-doom out and blazing?

      Madonna is a bitch, that is an absolute. But she’s a boisterous bitch who thinks far too much of herself and demands that everyone know it.

      My bets are on Angelina. She’s more of an ice queen who could effortlessly knock you down with just a slight glance.

      • Tapioca says:

        AJ is 90lbs soaking wet, Madonna is 53-years worth of ambition and gristle.

        Who did the whole “bad girl, lipstick lesbian” thing first and better. No contest!

        I also seem to recall that AJ’s legally-shonky adoption of Maddox was the final straw that got foreign adoptions banned in Cambodia. Glass houses and all that.

      • Janet says:

        Tapioca: Why do you say Angelina’s adoption of Maddox was “legally shonky” or that Cambodia has banned foreign adoptions? Neither statement is true and you just make yourself sound stupid when you post comments like that.

      • Willworkforfood says:

        Pretty good analogies of both….lol. It is fun imagining these two in a bitch-beat-down. And I don’t mean by violence or hair pulling. I agree, Angelina can turn on the icy-eye in a second flat. Madonna seems like she thinks she can, but not even close. Funny (and cute) how Zahara can do the same thing. I would call Z’s the stink-eye, though. Gotta love it.

      • Mrs. Odie 2 says:

        36 year-olds don’t need to age gracefully. When Angie is 42, her fat free body and face will need some help to look young.

    • blonde on the dock says:

      I agree with spinner. Madonna…..easily

  6. truthSF says:

    Should I be pissed about the amount of bullsh!t dripping from this story, or should I just be grateful that the tabs are creating a new feud instead of rewriting the same tired one for 7 years?

  7. cerulean says:

    Madonna is a soul sucking vampire and best to be avoided. She is jealous of Angelina as she is with anyone who does something better than her.

    Avoid her at all costs and wear a hazmat suit if ever in close contact.

    • bros says:

      agreed. just look at madonna’s latest stuff caught on camera with the dahlia or whatever flower someone accidentally gave her that she DESPISES. she’s an absurd caricature of what she used to be. no one speaks badly of angelina’s attitude on set or at events, and her charity work and charities that she and brad administer have been beyond reproach and believe me, if there were sh-t to talk about those charities, it would happen. these things always get out-look at Wyclef, Oprah and Madonna.

      Madonna may be the bigger pop culture icon, but angie’s a truer character.

      • spinner says:

        The JP’s were involved with Wycleff Jean & his shady Haitian charity. That got swept under the rug. Let’s be truthful.

      • Sasha says:

        @Spinner — your anti-Angie bias is ridiculous. Angie and Brad were no more “involved” in Wyclef’s shady Haitian charity than any of the other people who DONATED money to it. They had nothing to do with the running of it/administration end of it. They made a donation to it. That’s it. Trying to use that to accuse them of wrongdoing or things being swept under the rug is pathetic on your part, especially when you are claiming the “truth.”

      • spinner says:

        @ Sasha…The JP’s transgression lies in the fact that they did not perform due diligence before donating a whopping million dollars to a Charity that was & has been deemed questionable. His organization had already been under investigation before their donation. They should have known better.

      • I thought they had donated the money to Doctors without Borders??

      • Jayna says:

        Say what you want, but Madonna invested. eleven million dollars of her own money toward her charity building the school. Her heart was in the right place Too bad she was trusting with the board in place. I hope she follows through with the school, though.

  8. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    It would be fun to see the two in either a debate or a wrestling match.

    • Janet says:

      See comment above. My money’s on Angie. In either forum she would chew Madonna up and spit her out. However I think Madonna is nothing more than a minor irritant to her and as usual the tabloids are trying make a big thing out of nothing.

    • womanfromthenorth says:

      Angie has the “reach” and Mad has the “thighs” So if Angie can just keep on her feet and hand on Mad’s head… Would be something to see..

      Oh and AJ all the way

    • Gradstudenteatinghotpockets says:

      YES! I would love to see this. I know AJ generally comes across as always taking the high road to things (just from what is printed about these kind of things) but it would just be hilarious to see her verbally slap down some one….like Lindsay Lohan (aka The Cracken). It would make my 2012.

  9. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Doesn’t seem like there’s any truth to this but, if there were, I think Madonna would eat Angelina alive. That woman is a hyena (complete with mock penis) and I can’t imagine her letting anyone out alpha her (hell, even A-Roid couldn’t).

    • Mourning the Death of Music says:

      See, that’s the interesting thing. Madonna has to let it be known she is top-bitch. She would bang her drum and shout it.

      I can’t ever imagine Angelina even raising a finger towards it and that is what would eat away at Madonna.

      Madonna has to be acknowledged as such. Angelina just is and doesn’t need to broadcast it for it to be known.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        ITA. The part about Madonna “reaching out to Angie to discuss their films” seems especially false. I can’t imagine Madonna would extend an olive branch after a perceived diss. Like you said, she just doesn’t have it in her. She’s either bow down or get stepped on.

  10. SEF says:


  11. Jane says:

    I agree – Madonna views Angelina as a wannabe, an annoyance, a try-hard and a dilettante.

    • Minty says:

      Madonna can view Angelina in whatever way she wants and Angelina can do the same. HOWEVER, the real dilettante is Madonna. Her years of “reinventing” herself certainly indicate that. Instead of being as “real” as possible in public and showing a truer representation of herself, she continuously adopted different fake personas, depending on what was trendy at the time. It’s just repetitious marketing hype.

      Early Madonna used the chunky jewelry, multiple crosses/necklaces/bracelets of stylist & designer Maripol. Then she ripped off the images of Old Hollywood for many years: Marilyn Monroe (many cheap imitations besides that Material Girl video), Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Louise Brooks, Brigitte Bardot (completely copied Bardot’s image in one scene from “And God Created Woman” for her Cherish video).

      Gwen Stefani helped popularize East Indian fashion for Western pop culture consumption in the mid 1990s, wearing henna tattoos and bindi. Madonna then copied Gwen during the early part of her “Ray Of Light” period. Next, she jumped on the geisha bandwagon for her video “Nothing Really Matters”, when the novel “Memoirs Of A Geisha” became a popular bestseller in 1997. That’s not originating trends. That’s following them, and for such a short time, too, which denotes a superficial interest. She continued to promote her pose of Eastern/Asian spirituality before she found her enablers in Kabbalah.

      Madonna married Guy Ritchie, then all of a sudden became Lady of the Manor with a fake English accent and newfound love of hunting and drinking alcohol in pubs. She divorced him and dropped the accent, though occasionally uses it in an attempt to appear highbrow.

      Even more of Madonna’s phoniness: in her current ad for her new perfume, Truth Or Dare, she wears a necklace with a cross. What happened to her profound belief in Kabbalah, hmmm? Once again she’s dabbling in religious superficiality. Is she now a Catholic/Jewish hybrid? Does she accessorize crucifixes with her red string bracelet? She has always manufactured controversy and made an insincere use of the trappings of other religions as part of her publicity schemes. She habitually stole her ideas from others. Many who think she is original have a limited frame of reference or were born yesterday.


      This is directed to Jayna, not you (Jane):

      Don’t bother replying to me. You’ve already identified yourself as a Madonna stan. Defending her to me will be a waste of your time and mine.

      • Star59 says:

        I TOTALLY agree with all of this. Madonna is such an obvious hack, and getting more desperate by the year. While I’m not particularly a fan of Angie’s, at least she has some substance and continuity.

  12. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Well as far as movie-making skills are concerned, Angelina wins the throw-down because W.E. got HORRIBLE reviews. Plus AJ is just more likeable in general (in my opinion). But AJ’s movie seems to be getting a pretty mixed bag of reviews-I think it’s trending at 48% with critics.
    This sounds pretty terrible:
    “A head-spinning mix of dead babies and romantic dinners, pillow talk and mass executions. Blood and honey don’t taste right together.”
    Definitely a rental for me….

    • Jayna says:

      I have two friends that saw W.E. and really enjoyed it at an early screening. I still applaud both women for moving past fear of failure and accomplishing making a movie and getting it released.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I should have known better. It’s almost impossible to post anything that could be interpreted as critical (I say FAIR) about AJ on a C/B AJ post without people getting all bent out of shape. All I was saying was that AJ’s movie is getting mixed reviews. For a directorial debut, that is far from a failure. However, after reading the critics’ reviews it doesn’t sound like something I’d pay to see. Ok, residents of CRAZYTOWN?

    “Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where (David) was born. It’s a country where there is no . Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.”

    Oh really and how much you payed for your cambodian boys. I’m sorry Cambodia is such a grat country and there are real legal framework for adoption. Please!

    • Original Chloe says:

      Jane, classy as ever.

    • Katherine says:

      I am so sick of baseless nonsense about Angelina’s adoptions. It is vile. Angelina’s adoption of Maddox was completely investigated because it was caught up during the time frame that some adoptions in Cambodia out of the same agency were questioned.

      Because of those allegations against two of the agency operatives involving a few adoptions (out of thousands), a massive investigation was conducted by the Cambodian and United States governments. Those investigations involved several U.S. agencies including the Dept of Justice which sent field investigators to Cambodia to thoroughly check into the families of the children in the questioned adoptions as well as approx. 100 other children (including Maddox) whose adoptions were held in abeyance during the investigations. This all began in Dec. 2001.

      The adoption agency operatives eventually pled guilty to a number of counts of illegal practices. However, every one of the other children whose adoptions were held up until they were investigated (including Maddox) were eventually deemed by the Cambodian and U.S. govts to be legal and free of irregularities. I imagine Maddox was one of the easier children to investigate since his family and their whereabouts were known.

      Maddox was cleared for adoption by the Cambodian govt in March 2002 and that is when Jolie took custody of him. It was not until May 2002 that the U.S. govt finished its investigation and certified Maddox’s adoption as legal and free of irregularities. It was at that point that Maddox was issued a U.S. visa/passport and allowed to enter the US which essentially made him a US citizen.

      Though it made for hot tabloid fodder, Maddox’s adoption was never in question or alleged to be illegal. Nonetheless, Jolie and the prospective adoptive parents of the 100 or so other children whose adoptions were already in the pipeline in Dec. 2001 at the time of the allegations of impropriety against the adoption agency all suffered the same fate. They had to go through months of painful uncertainty of having their adoptions delayed and possibly denied.

      I get fed up with those who are ignorant of the facts and fueled by their animous toward Jolie when they make false allegations regarding her adoptions. She was never the cause of any country suspending adoptions including Cambodia. Nor were any of her other adoptions alleged to have been irregular. The U.S. Department of Justice does not play. If there had been issues with her adoption of Maddox it would be known and the adoption would not have passed the very stringent requirements of U.S. approval for foreign adoptions.

      At the time when I read the comments Jolie made about Madonna’s adoption of David they did not seem like criticism to me. She was asked about the controversy swirling at the time and she responded honestly. It was a gamble that Madonna took since the adoption laws in Malawi were barely in place. When she heard how her words were being misconstrued as criticism she acted quickly to set the record straight that she was not criticizing Madonna and offered words of support to her.

      Sorry this was so long but I really do get fed up. A child is involved and the irresponsible venom of some people is intolerable to me.

      • Sab says:

        I watched a televised interview of Angelina at the time of the Madonna adoption story. They pestered her about Madonna’s situation until she commented and all she said was “I really don’t like to comment on any certain situation as I don’t know all the details. I am obviously in support of adoption however I personally would not adopt from a country that did not have any formal adoption laws in place.” (paraphrased) In that particular interview she was not snippy at all and what I saw was her trying to answer a question that she didn’t really seem to want to answer because it was about Madonna in particular. I didn’t feel she was catty, I did feel she was uncomfortable commenting, and did her best to be politic in her comment. I feel she was torn because she is in full support of adoption, but didn’t really want to say much as she didn’t know much about Malawi in particular, just that they had no legal structure for adoption in any way, which they didn’t.

      • lama says:

        So how come it took Connie Britton 3 years to adopt a boy from Ethiopia, when AJ was able to adopt Zahara after a few months?

      • Janet says:

        @lama: It always takes less time to adopt a second child because the agency doesn’t have to do a complete home study from scratch. All they have to do is update the existing home study from the first child’s adoption and get additional documentation if required. An original home study can take many months to complete.

      • Katherine says:

        Jolie applied for her second foreign adoption in the fall of 2004 and she adopted Zahara in July 2005. Once you have successfully completed a foreign adoption your adoption packet is obviously complete and it’s good for up to 18 months or more with updates needed for some requirements (medical certifications, home checks, etc.). In other words subsequent adoptions through agencies can be easier since you were previously approved by an agency as well as the foreign govt and your own govt. If your original adoption has been deemed successful then you may be considered a safer and better placement than first time adoptive parents – as unfair and unfortunate as that may seem.

        Connie says she was inspired to adopt after her father died in 2008. We don’t know exactly when she started the process. Just putting together your first adoption packet can be a long time consuming process. So this does not mean that Connie had to wait 3 years once she finally was able to formally apply to adopt a child. I also remember an interview Connie gave in which she talked about some things in her own life that delayed her adoption process either not being able to accept a baby or her work situation.

        People need to stop comparing these things. There are many and varied factors that can determine how long an adoption can take. Some factors parents have control over and some factors that are out of their hands.

      • womanfromthenorth says:

        well said! Thank you! I hope everyone takes the time to read this.

    Madonna holds court, she doesn’t pay court to others. I would imagine Angie holds court but would mingle with others if she wanted…but she would hardly be interested in going to fawn over Madonna – she’s a total has been at this point.

    • Nikki says:

      Cambodia does have a legal frame work for intermational adoption as does Vietnam and Ethiopia where she adopted from. Saying that she bought her children is a diss to all adoptive parents. The money is mostly for legal fees not paying for children that would be slavery or child trafficking.

    • Jayna says:

      Seriously? Her last album sold four million. She played to stadiums with a lot of new music and was the largest solo tour of all time male or female. She has businesses, is playing Archie Super Bowl, putting out a new album, and will do another huge world tour in 2012 which will probably top her last record. Believe me, her tickets are expensive and she still sells out. And she directed and wrote a movie. Love her or hate her, but Madonna’s massive LiveNation deal shows she’s no hasbeen. She’s in the elite group of U2 and Springsteen that still haveassive relevance and drawing power. No mean feat to accomplish 30 years in the business.

      Also Zahara was very ill when she was adopted. She was hospitalized as soon as they landed in the US. They sometimes speed up the process to get medical care to the child ASAP.

    I call it BS.

    Both are extremely powerful intelligent, smart women and great mums who respect their children’s multi culturalim and raise them well. Lourdes is a perfect tri lingual and madonna has always discipline her children while keeping great relationships with both fathers.

    The only difference between those two women is that Jolie seems to look for mature relationships and embraced that turn around attitude at 25 while Madonna did it at 38 (when both became mother for the first time).

    It seems that Jolie is the type who will mature, will turn out the more traditional mum and grand mum figure and embrace it more easily while Madonna still want to compete with youth, stay wild and will probably date young men who will become younger than her daughter’s future boyfriends.

    Jolie embraces her maturity in every aspect of her life and is continuesly on a personal growth, not Madonna’s who probably will feel very sad the day Lourdes will become a mother as she becomes a grandmothe and has great chances of becoming the ‘embarrassing’ original type of grandmother with a young step grand father.

    Wow, the media sure does love to pit high-profile women against each other on the basis of extremely thin evidence. I mean, who doesn’t just love a good catfight, amirite?

  21. Anne de Vries says:

    I can see how Madonna (and comparisons) would irritate Angelina Jolie, who does a lot of genuine humanitarian work and has done for years now. To be compared to somebody who made a big show of doing humanitarian work, didn’t follow through and basically made a complete mockery of the whole concept would burn..

    • Darolo says:

      I really wish more people commenting here had done their homework properly. To comment on facts you’ve only read of in magazines & tabloids is so crass. They are based on sensationalism, creative journalism and rarely truth. We are talking about two fine, talented , caring women who have both opened their homes and lives to underprivileged children in order to offer them a better future. I know the preparation, soul searching and care that went into Madonna’s adoptions and I am sure it was the same for Angelina. They are both doing a fantastic job for the best reasons in the world. They receive in order to share & it doesn’t get much better than that. They have never met that’s true but Madonna & Guy talked to Brad at length before adopting David. Madonna became involved with Malawi through Bob Geldof. The rest is history.
      It is untrue they hate each other. Neither lives their lives as haters. They care deeply about others and especially children. I do not know a great deal about Angelina other than that but I do know Madonna does mountains of humanitarian stuff that is not publicised by her request. I applaud both women. They are sharing their success and bringing happiness to others. I refuse to be drawn more into tabloid journalism such as we have here in this article!
      Let’s focus on the positives and restrict reactive behaviour. It is better to be a proactive participant than a reactive bystander!

    So this is the part where I’m supposed to bash one of them down & minimize her accomplishments in order to lift up the other one, right?

    No can do – I think they’re both amazing and am impressed by both their accomplishments. And luckily, this entire story is speculation on top of more speculation.

    Rock on, Madonna. Love the UK trailer for W.E. Much better than the original version. And the music being used as the instrumental is fantastic. Also linked her new song for the end of the movie.

  29. Luise says:

    Madge big old hunking chin implant totally grosses me out.

  30. AttorneyJane says:

    Seriously? This story is so fake. I can’t.

    Angie and Madonna are both Highly talented in their own perspective craft. They are completely different individuals.

    That said, Angie will lose to Madonna in a bitch fight. Madonna is an Alpha Bitch. You respect her, you wanna be on her good side, you please her, you actually want to be friends with her. She’s the Queen of Pop, bow down. Angie on the other hand, is the bitch you’ve always wanted to be so you dispise her and would love to talk behind her back. Angie is the girl who finds it difficult to find real girlfriends coz they hate her for getting all the boys with no effort whatsoever. Plus, she’s a homewrecker. Hide your husband ladies.

    Madonna is the popular girl. Angie is the slut who stole your Best Friend’s husband. She’s no match for Madge.

    • Julia says:

      No offence but in terms of sluttinesds Madonna takes the cake and the title easily. Her whole career and life has been marketted around that sexual freedom related image.

      She is the one who used to take random men in her limo through NY to have sex with them, the one who used to simulate oral sex on stage as an entertainment public display while her young stars were there, she is the oner who had troubles with the church, the one who had cops in some concerts who warned her that she will be busted if she didn’t drop the ‘blow job’ simulation scene in countries where it is culturally sensitive , the one who made a raunchy nude photoshoot with equal bitch Naomi Campbell, the ex of Denis Rodman who needed to make a book about SEX and advertised it while going totally nude on the street hitch hicking, the one who has been dubbed the major SLUT since day one, since ‘Like a virgin’ and her raunchy demonstration at the MTV awards.

      I even remembered back in the day when she was often pitted opposite to singer SADE then Whitney Houston when she was still America’s sweetheart, the good girl versus the slut whose mothers didn’t want their son to marry. I remembered Sade saying something along the line : that she respects her as an artist but will never be caught acting as bad as Madonna and being dressed as slutty as her even in her coffin.

      Madonna has made a career out of being the number one slut, emulating then accentuating at times both Marylin Monroe and Brigitte Bardot around who she mastered her image previously and has been in more sexual scandals in many countries prior motherhood. She was majorly villipied by the press in many countries as she deliberatly shoked local sensitivity and was dubbed a major slut. She had mothers and families organisations against her, even the catholic church at some point while she represented all that is denigarted in families value in the 80′s and 90′s until she got pregnant.

      And even if she is an intelligent woman, she is a major egomaniac bitch who look down on people, is sometimes agressive during interviews and only had other bitches like Naomi Campbell and Gwineth as female friends, which for me tells a lot.

      I respect her cause she is an icon and i like her older hits but to be honest using sex is the easy way. That’s why I respect people who grow or people who were classy right away like Sade or Cate Blanchett. They never needed to open their legs or to get into raunchy demonstration until 40 or older to build a career.

  31. Nan209 says:

    I’m not on either team because I think it’s a non issue. However, I’ll make a proposal that the reason Angie and Madge don’t have anything to do with each other is because the men folk don’t have anything to do with each other. Guy and Madge split so Brad & Angie wouldn’t be buddies with Madge anyway (friends pick teams after a divorce)…also, and I could be wrong, but weren’t Guy and Brad tight during the Aniston days? So Angie wouldn’t be buddied up anyway.

  32. leetruth says:

    Can’t be bitchy about either one. They are both great individuals in their own right.

  33. kerker says:

    I like them both but let’s face it Madonna jumped the shark a long time ago. At least Angelina has talent as far as acting – I don’t know about the directing/writing part yet.

  34. whatevs says:

    i agree with kaiser’s views on madonna or alleged views of angie on madonna however that denied story does sound fake. i don’t think angie likes madonna but she would be courteous if she ran into her at the globes… doesn’t mean anything. and who can blame her i hate madonna also. turned this pr humanitarian act into madonna show. her horrid documentary was on the tv in 2006… where she said she learned more about herself, in the beginning… yeah because that’s what the charity was all about… barf

  35. Izzy says:

    The only reason these two would possibly be on each other’s radar is because they were both screwing around with Jenny Shimizu at roughly the same time. Old news. I seriously doubt either one cares what the other does, beyond the manufactured tabloid bull.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Here’s an April 2011 Diva magazine quote from Jenny re: Angelina…

      “‘I don’t want to sound like I hustle ass,’ she confides, ‘but for a while back then, if Angelina called, I’d drop everything and join her wherever she was in the world. Angelina and I had a really wonderful relationship that lasted many years. I was dating her while she was seeing other people – she was that type of person; wonderful and open.”

  36. Catherine says:

    Sorry, not buying the whole tension gig here.

  37. samira677 says:

    This is such a stupid and ridiculous story. How does one comment mean they’ve hated each other for years? It wasn’t even that bad. Not meeting doesn’t mean anything. They don’t attend the same award shows or events and in two different industries. There’s a lot of celebrities who have never met. It doesn’t mean they hate each other.

  38. skuddles says:

    Whether there is any truth to this story or not… don’t know, but something tells me these two women would NOT get along. Angie has more power, beauty and talent, on top of being a lot younger, and that would surely gall the hell out of Madonna.

  39. msw says:

    I thought Jenny Shimizu was the cause of this age-old feud.

  40. laura says:

    re: “It will all depend on how close the Jolie-Pitts are to Madonna’s table, I think.”

    I bet the awards shows’ll take that advice to heart!

  41. hetekyle says:

    who’s the source? hope it’s not huvane.

  42. Gina says:

    Jenny Shimizu is Hot Angelina and Madonna fight for her is SEX…

    When it came to androgynous nineties beauty, Jenny Shimizu took it to a whole new level. Discovered by a casting director for Calvin Klein as she was straddling her motorcycle outside a club in L.A., Shimizu became the face of the pioneering unisex scent CK One, and the lover of both Madonna (purportedly) and Angelina Jolie (confirmed).

  43. bl-magazine says:

    sorry madonna , i will support my love angelina

  44. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    This is so made up. We are talking about grown women here, not teenagers.

    Madonna is Madonna, but definately NOT Angie.

    Angie is no dummy, so forget any cat fight. Angie will be wrapped up in Brad to notice anyone else. She HOLDS center court to Madonna’s ringside seat complete with her own entourage. Angie for the upperhand which includs Brad who is Hollywoods darling to who exactly is Madonna’s new young boy toy.

    Don’t get this twisted. Angie got this all over ANYONE. But they will be cordial as is expected by true adults.

  45. WestValleyCalli says:

    OMG — looking at those two — would they not be perfect for a Whatever Happened to Baby Jane remake? Angie as Joan Crawford, and Madonna as Bette Davis (sorry Bette) ….

  46. jc126 says:

    I actually feel kind of bad for Madonna WRT the charity. I’m sure she had good intentions, but it’s damn hard to run a charity from afar and staff it with competent people.

  47. Mrs. Odie 2 says:

    Madonna is a wannabe? Ironic. The term was coined to describe Madonna’s fans. Madonna has had an extremely successful career for 30 years. Maybe she’s a bitch. But she is an amazing performer and businesswoman. Jolie is beautiful and sexy. She’s five years away from being beautiful “for her age” and sexless like all over 40 women in Hollywood.

  48. lisa says:

    Why all the discussion over something that is not true.


  49. Chrissy says:

    I don’t care for either of them, but there was some real funny business with Madonna’s adoptions. It seems she basically bought the kids from their poverty stricken parents or guardians. I think Angelina had a point about not adopting from that country.

  50. sandy#1 says:

    team Jolie forever, but at least Madonna is a worthy adversary, i think Madonna can hold her own, but, Jolie does everything with class, and i mean everything.

  51. mimi says:

    That’s the thing I don’t like about Angelina:
    She is so competitive with other women, she can’t stand the idea that there’s another women who has been more successful than her and that her good deeds are getting more media coverage than her.

    If she really cared about helping third world countries and adoption she would never have responded the way she did.

    As if Angelina didn’t donate a lot of money to have the Namibia government shut down the entire beach area and the airport so that she could have control on the photo ops being released when she was pregnant there.

    • Katherine says:

      “As if Angelina didn’t donate a lot of money to have the Namibia government shut down the entire beach area and the airport so that she could have control on the photo ops being released when she was pregnant there.”

      What a ridiculous statement. Got any proof for this. One of the reasons that they chose Namibia to give birth was that it had work permit laws in made it hard for free lancers including photographers to just fly into the country and stalk people. In fact, most countries require work permits before you can ply your trade – even for paparazzi.

  52. mimi says:

    I remember that when Angelina got her Oscar she never bothered to thank Winona Ryder for giving her that part and the opportunity.

    Acting ungrateful and competitive with other women is something I would hope Angie’s ego can do without.

  53. khaveman says:

    I think I’m team Angie on this one. I hate that Madonna’s charity pulled out of Malawi and I only hope her children are well cared-for and happy. I can’t help but think it was for publicity.

    • Jana says:

      Right. Publicity. That’s why she keeps all of her young children (Rocco, David, Mercy) out of the limelight Lourdes is now old enough to attend events with Madonna, but beyond that you rarely see her kids papped endlessly.

      (Sigh) Why must people diss those who adopt and give ulterior reasons? Raising children is a lifetime commitment, not a photo-op. I applaud Angie and Madonna for adopting and anyone else who has, especially those who had/have the ability to have their own children but wanted to add to their family and give a child in need a home also.

  54. Gina says:

    Angelina Jolie thanked Ryder in her acceptance speech.

  55. teri says:

    Mimi aka Winona I had watched it and she did thank everyone. Who say’s till this day she must kiss her a.. for Angelina herself winning an Oscar? Winona made a joke of herself by stealing from a clothing store. Not much else to say about Winona.

  56. teri says:

    I seriously don’t think Angelina is competitive with other women as you say. She doesn’t need many gf to prop her up and make her feel good about herself. She stands alone and to me she has self confindence without all the gf drama. Madonna spends millions towards that sciontology church so I doubt they’d allow Madonna to give freely.

  57. Jana says:

    Julia, seriously, for every provocative performance Madonna gave, most of her other performances were far from provocative. Her music and performances are so varied, moving, sexy, playful, artistic. You distill Madonna into slutty behavior. Her career wouldn’t have lasted this long if she didn’t produced great music and concerts. Her Blond Ambition had the Like a Virgin with 30 seconds of simulated masturbation. Woo-hoo. Look at the rest of that tour and her music. Madonna can go from telling women to own their sexuality to singing the most beautiful ballads of any popstar. Blond Ambition is most iconic tour of all times and I grew and followed her more mature tours which all have moments of pure pop brilliance and are all different, but, wow, Blond Ambition. I was young but it has never been topped.

    Entertained myself reading these comments. Yes, I’m bored this a.m. Team Angie. Madonna a f…ing evil bitch in my mind.

  59. miri says:

    I like them both, Madonna has not been morally perfect, but she has been a great artist with a great career, AJ is a very good actress, but what I like better from her is her drive to do good and better things for herself and for others. She has improved and become and accomplished a lot for a HW artist, and she is fearless about it. Others are good, too, but others have thrown so much mud at her that I admire her for ignoring the barking dogs and go on with her life.
    This is a non story. Whatever, I think they both are good moms who love their children.

    • Jana says:

      Angelina is an amazing humanitarian who is extremely self-educated on all of her causes and walks the walk. Anyone who tries to say differently is just mean-spirited.

  60. miriam says:

    Not a Madonna fan, she’s super annoying, but I’d quite like to see her knock Joile to the floor and take a dump on her smug face. Can’t stand Jolie.

    • miri says:

      wow miriam you do express your feelings well.
      Bitter much?

    • My NYResolution says:

      You are completely delusional. Angelina is the opposite of smug. She is very self-depreciating and the least smug celeb their is. Maybe you have issues.

  61. sm255 says:

    I’m sorry but…WHY in the world would Jolie pick on Madonna, or vice versa?

    Besides, if that’s the case, Jolie needs to respect her elders (Madonna, in this case). Cannot stand that self-righteous brat trying to prove herself or shadily one-upping other people because of her ‘accomplishments’ and ‘behavior’. It’s hard to believe if Madonna would actually inflate her ego enough to pay attention to her and remark negative insults to her.

    …and why the heck is AJ seen as an angel here? It’s like you cannot criticize her or else you’re a hater (which I think is what teenagers say rather than grown men…and women).

    • truthSF says:

      sm255, why are you responding to this fake story as if it is real. Star magazine made this shit up, only to be picked up by Kaiser. Nothing about this story is real except the 2 subject in this article.

  62. jin says:

    They are both overrated stars who take themselves too seriously and so it’s no surprise they thought they could direct. Angelina Jolie’s film has gotten bad reviews too. What first time director goes for a project that is as ambitious as dealing with the Bosnian war. Her ego forced her to think she could do it, but the critics have said her ambition far outweighed her talent and her script sucked. After Kathryn Bigelow won the Oscar you have these female celebrities thinking they can direct because they have this dream of being the female Clint Eastwood or whatever.

  63. Sakyiwaa says:

    Team Angie. And this is such a non-story. But at least madonna is a much better adversary than the 7 yr old ‘itch’.

  64. deltona lakes says:

    Angelina wins hands down. the fact that she’s still relevant after 15 years on the scene. Madonna is now launching a perfume at 53 years old..After Britney, Beyonce,katy Pery, SJP and numerous others. Isn’t she suppose to be the trendsetter?

  65. dena says:

    I’m mystified by Brangeloonies and whatever we call people who are obsessssssed with Jennifer Maniston.

    Tis all speculation. I don’t see any evidence of a feud between the two.

    Not buying it. Don’t think they hate each other. Altho, the thought of it makes me like Angie more.

  68. Bratt says:

    Angelina didn’t write this so called Movie tha land of blood and honey Angelina copied it out of a book and is being sued……you know everything you and Angeloonie says always comes back and bites you all in the a$$ LOL

  69. Tina says:

    One thought: who cares about these crazily over-paid gals and their egos? HELLO? If they were not both supreme megalomaniacs they wouldn’t constantly seek controversial fame? Also, WHY NOT ADOPT FROM THE USA? Surely we have needy children here? Guess that doesn’t make such a splash to the media and your narcissistic personality profile. I cannot stand either one of them. To me the only difference is in less visible face/body lifts. Meanwhile they espouse “healthy lifestyles”. Sickening.

  70. Vítor says:

    This is all crap. They have never hated each other. Angelina said a lot of times she´s a Madonna fan. You can´t find videos of Madonna dissing Angelina, because they just don´t exist. The only thing Madonna said on Angelina comments is she didn´t know the facts, or if Angelina have really said those things, so she wasn´t commenting.
