Did Madonna fly to the Hamptons for Steven Klein’s birthday party?

Madonna leaves MTV Studios in London sporting an eye patch

There was a Madonna drama over the weekend, but I’ll admit to not paying much attention to it before now. Madonna, as we know, has been especially bonkers during the coronavirus pandemic. She (very allegedly) went into lockdown and began doing these completely tone-deaf Quarantine Diary videos. Even Madonna’s long-time friends feel like she’s lost the plot and coming across as “sad” and “crazy.” Last week, Madonna also claimed that she tested positive for corona antibodies too, although no one knows if that was another sad “look at me!” stunt. Then there was this weekend’s controversy: did Madonna fly to Brighthampton, NY to party with photographer Steven Klein for his birthday?

Madonna caught heat for snuggling with a pal at a not-distant social gathering on Saturday night. But Page Six has learned that she may also have been crisscrossing the globe while waiting to find out if she’s had COVID-19. Last we heard, the pop legend was quarantining in the UK, where she’s been firing off her bizarre musings about the crisis on Instagram. But we’re told the party she attended for photographer Steven Klein’s birthday was in Bridgehampton, NY.

The singer just revealed Friday that she tested positive for antibodies, suggesting that she unknowingly had the illness but recovered from it. The birthday party was hosted at Klein’s horse farm, West Kill Farm, and attended by nightlife legend Susanne Bartsch, performer Joey Arias and Marcy Richardson, a pole dancer who appeared in “Hustlers.” It was broadcast on Zoom by V Magazine.

Bartsch is something of a repeat social-distancing offender. Back on March 25, Page Six reported that she drew the ire of some in the nightlife community by throwing a “small party” at her Chelsea Hotel apartment in spite of the rules of lockdown. Reps for Madonna didn’t get back to us.

So, Page Six heard that Madonna was in lockdown in the UK, but this whole time I thought she was in lockdown in Manhattan. Traveling to Bridgehampton always would have been bad, but there’s a difference between “flying from England to the Hamptons” versus “driving from Manhattan to the Hamptons.” The result is the same – she was not social distancing, and neither were all of the people at Klein’s party. So, after doing her sad uncool Quarantine Diary sh-t, Madonna couldn’t even hold it together past seven weeks, even after allegedly testing positive? Mess.

  1. Who ARE these people? says:

    Privileged twits.

    Also, antibody tests are not yet reliable enough.

    • Rapunzel says:

      And if the anti-body test are accurate, it still doesn’t matter, cause it hasn’t been proven you can get reinfected and spread it again.

    I don’t envy the tightrope celebrities are going to be walking and who knows for how long. Every move they make will be scrutinized. Did they break protocol? Did they put anyone at risk? They were alone driving to a home they rent or own that no one else lives or works in? Well then, what about the gas station attendant!

    I wouldn’t want to be watched that closely. Sometimes I just go for a drive, listening to my music. It helps me mentally. But it’s another trip the gas station. It’s getting in and out of my elevator. thank god nobody is watching me. I am barely hanging on mentally as it is. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel too sorry for them, they have privileges the rest of us will never know. But if any of them have mental health issues, and I feel certain some do (they are people after all), then yes, I do feel for them. They are going to get sliced and diced.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      All they have to do is keep it off of social media. It’s clear that some aren’t smart enough to do that, but the are inviting the scrutiny by posting.

      • Darla says:

        That’s true. In this case and I guess also in Affleck’s case. Fair point.

      • Lucy2 says:

        Stay off social media, and STAY HOME.
        There is absolutely no reason for her to attend this party. There is no reason that an adult MUST have a birthday party for themselves right now. And there is no reason for other celebrities to take a “quick little vacation”. Just stay home.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Absolutely this. If stupid is, then don’t post. But stupid is as stupid does, and they deserve the outcry.

    • Jules says:

      oh play me a tiny violin for these poor celebrities.

  3. Other Renee says:

    Nice to see that this twit prioritizes partying with “friends” over the safety, health and well-being of her children. No wonder her son with Guy Richie wanted to live with his father. It must be exhausting being around her for any length of time. When she’s actually around, that is.

  4. Deanne says:

    What a bunch of selfish, reckless, entitled assholes. Being as desperate for attention as she is, I’m surprised that Madonna didn’t mention being iill at all, but has now supposedly tested positive for antibodies. I don’t believe her, but it doesn’t matter as the antibody tests aren’t a guarantee that you can’t get reinfected. The fact that they are arrogant enough to expose their disregard for everyone else by posting on social media says it all. My cousin has a five year old who understood that he couldn’t have a regular birthday party because of what’s going on in the world, but these jerks are just too special to follow the rules.

  5. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Does she think we’re still in the 80s, and that she’s at the height of her fame? She’s exhibiting a breathtaking level of privilege and self-entitlement that implies she’s much more important than she actually is. Which is to say ‘not at all’.

  6. SJR says:

    Madonna looks terrible these days.
    What is she doing to face? Boo to her drs that are going along with this surgery.
    For all her years of “respect yourself” she obviously is not accepting her senior years.
    And, yes I’m 58 so I recall her at the top of her game.
    I think Madonna has been incredibly driven in her career, smart and highly successful businesswoman, etc. but she never seems happy to me.

  7. Chickaletta says:

    Is Madonna a white, super rich, out of touch Boomer who doesn’t understand social distancing and won’t let a silly “bad flu” get in the way of a good party?

    Does a bear poo in the woods?

  8. Deb says:

    One part of me feels bad for Madonna because she clearly is NOT handling aging well. And the other part of me wants to slap the taste out of her mouth and yell at her to get a grip. She’s always been a narcissistic twit though so I would bet that shes never even given a thought to possibly putting other people at risk.

  9. ME says:

    Typical f*cking rich celeb. Do as I say, not as I do !

    • pottymouth pup says:

      my guess is that she announced testing positive for antibodies as a shield to any criticism for flying to NY to go to a party (as in she thinks her test results are a passport to prove she’s not spreading the virus and, possibly, hey look I”m so perfect/healthy that I didn’t get sick at all when exposed)

  10. Valerie says:

    She is, and always has been, trash. That’s just the kind of person she is.

  11. Granger says:

    I know three friends who traveled together in a car to hang out at a cottage for a weekend because, apparently, they all needed “a break” from the pandemic. While there, they hung out with the neighbors — inside the neighbor’s cottage, by the way, not out on a dock or in a yard. There are so many levels of selfishness and narcissism in their behavior that it’s difficult to comprehend. And if regular people are doing it, it doesn’t surprise me in the least to hear of a narcissistic celebrity doing it too.

    • Ella says:

      I had a friend and her partner who had plans to go to some cabin in the woods somewhere in VA with another couple mid-March right around when things were shutting down and people were encouraged to go in quarantine. They didn’t cancel their plans since they deemed they had been “isolating themselves” and so had the other couple and nobody had symptoms. I totally judged her for it even though she kept saying “Well we already had these plans in place and this is probably the last time we’ll be able to go away for awhile.” I think I would have been more understanding if it had been just her and her fiancé, but it wasn’t. They shared the cabin with another couple and looking back it was very irresponsible.

      I know other people who have also met up with friends in public but in a “social distancing” way, sitting or standing 6 feet apart outside wearing masks. It’s not great but I’m more open to that then people sharing closed quarters with other people when it is not at all necessary to be doing so.

      • Granger says:

        I’m actually okay with people meeting in somebody’s backyard for a beer, keeping their distance, not going into the house to use the toilet, etc. Health experts here in Canada say that it’s fine to get outside (we all need fresh air) and you’re in no danger if you respect social distancing rules.

        The people I know who went to the cottage–that was two weekends ago. And they knew how irresponsible and selfish it was because they asked me not to tell anyone! But maybe the worst part was their comment about needing a break from the pandemic. These are not healthcare workers–two of them don’t even work full-time (by choice). What do they need a break from? It’s like standing in front of a nursing home worker who’s been watching people die from COVID for the last six weeks and saying, I totally understand how tired you are, I’m off to a cottage to get a break from all of this. Argh.
