Madonna did not make volunteers look away
Madonna did not ask volunteers at the Toronto International Film Festival to face away from her, her publicist says.
A statement from Liz Rosenberg was issued on the red carpet Tuesday night refuting a report in the Globe and Mail that said volunteers were asked to turn their faces to a wall so they would not see Madonna as she walked out of a Monday news conference for her new movie, “W.E.”
“Neither Madonna nor her security ever gave instructions for the volunteers to turn away from Madonna,” Rosenberg said in the statement.
“In fact she was so impressed with the volunteers that she publicly thanked them from the stage for their hard work before the premiere of her film last night which earned a standing ovation. She had a wonderful time at the festival and was especially delighted that she got to spend so much time with her fans in front of the theatre which is a famous tradition at the festival.”
Rosenberg said she can’t figure out who made the request of the volunteers. The Globe cited a volunteer who said such a request was complied with.
“(Madonna) has never and would never ask anyone to do that ever,” said Rosenberg.
