And Finally Beef Of The Week

CMU Beef Of The Week #96: Madonna v her skinflint fans

Madonna hasn’t announced a tour to promote her forthcoming new album yet, but when she does you’d better be prepared to fork out for it if you want to see her. The singer has suggested that tickets in the US could cost $300.

Asked if she’d be making more affordable tickets available to fans this time round after high prices on her last tour helped her break at least two records for a solo artist’s touring revenue, Madge told Newsweek that she had no plans to drop her prices, saying that those who want to see her perform should “start saving your pennies now”. She added: “People spend $300 on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together, and come to my show. I’m worth it”.

And if it turns out she’s not, well, good luck trying to get a refund. You can read the full interview via this link, though be warned, she does bang on about Lady Gaga again. That’s becoming quite tedious now.
