Liz Rosenberg defends her girl from Moonstruck director
The Moonstruck film-maker attacked movie bosses for giving Madonna a succession of coveted movie roles, despite her lack of talent.
Norman Jewison says, “Madonna? It’s all hype. Come on. How do you know whether anybody can act? You’re told that they’re a big star, you know, or somebody’s got a cute ass or they’ve got great boobs. But Madonna has a small amount of talent when it comes to movies. And we’re all being suffocated by talentless stars in films. I can’t believe that people are obsessed like they are now with celebrity. I don’t know what’s going on.”
“I’m sorry to hear that a director whom I hold in such high esteem would have such small regard for my client”, Madonna’s spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg told gossip website The Scoop: “I completely disagree with his statement about Madonna making a lot out of a little talent.
“I don’t think you can sell 100 million records and sell out arenas and stadiums for over 20 years just being a celebrity. Madonna is a Golden Globe winner and a Grammy winner and has had an unprecedented career as an artist artist. Glad to know people are still talking shots at my girl. I was beginning to worry.”
