Piers blasts 'drunken aunt' Madonna

2012-02-08 13:27

Los Angeles - Piers Morgan claims Madonna's performance at the Super Bowl was "gruesome".

The talk show host - who has had a long-running feud with the Hung Up singer - was not impressed with Madonna's routine during the halftime show of the NFL game on Sunday because she looked like a "drunken aunt".

He told TV host Chelsea Handler: "That Super Bowl performance - it was like watching your mad drunken aunt at Christmas, wasn't it? I keep reading all these celebrities tweeting like, 'Wasn't she awesome?' No she wasn't! She was gruesome!"

Several clashes

"But at least I've found that I have one common ground with Madonna: neither of us have sung live at the Super Bowl. She was lip syncing the whole damn thing. I was singing along with her and trust me, she wasn't singing."

Piers - who has banned Madonna from his talk show - has made no secret of his dislike of the Material Girl hitmaker and has often spoken about several clashes they have had.

He once said: "There was a bread roll throwing incident in London in the mid '90s; there was an incident at a hotel in the south of France at the Cannes Film Festival involving a photographer and a bodyguard. And there's been an incident involving a pub owned by her recently departed husband, Guy Ritchie, where my brother was the manager."

    A sly, not gracefully aging, business woman that for decades has been lipsyncing her way to pop stardom with a very average voice and "shocking" stunts. I am very straight but would prefer Pierce Morgan's company over Madonna's by a country mile.

      Don't agree with you at all. She is a smart savvy women who has made millions. Would choose her anyday over comments made by sour grapes Piers.
