Madonna stunned journalists backstage at Saturday's (07Jul07) Live Earth concert with a bizarre list of demands before they could interview her - according to media reports.
The Ray Of Light star wowed 80,000 fans at the London leg of the fundraising concert - but backstage journalists were told they must not check their notes during interviews with her as they had to maintain eye contact at all times, reports British newspaper The Daily Mirror.
One U.S. TV source tells the newspaper, "It's intimidating enough interviewing Madonna because she's so intense, but when we were given these weird orders it was even worse.
"We thought her people were just joking. But it soon became apparent that they were deadly serious."
