Is Madge a cockney rhyming slang?
This is Contactmusic reprising the rumor about Madonna having banned her husband from using her British nickname, Madge.
“The Material Girl” had never heard of the name until she moved to England and was horrified when the Snatch film-maker called her by it, because she “can’t stand it”.
She complains, “Guy does not call me Madge. I can’t stand that. I think fans call me Madge, and the press do.
“The first time I heard that name was when I moved here. I’ve never met anyone called Madge. Is it cockney rhyming slang?”
