James Morrison: Madonna Is The Rudest Celebrityby Contributor | 11 September 2008
James Morrison has claimed Madonna is the most impolite celebrity he's ever met.
Speaking to Metro ahead of the release of his new single You Make It Real, the singer-songwriter revealed he was blanked by the Material Girl while working on his second album in the US.
"I was recording in a studio in LA and she came in to speak to a producer and someone asked if I wanted to meet her," he explained.
"I'm not her biggest fan but thought I'd say hello so I went over and said: 'Hello, I'm James, nice to meet you,' and put my hand out to shake hands.
"She just looked at it and said: 'And what do you do?' I told her I was a singer and she just stared at me and didn't say anything. It was really uncomfortable. Then she just ignored me."
He added: "F*** her, though, it's just a matter of common courtesy. It doesn't matter what someone does for a living. She's just rude. There's no excuse for it."
The Brit award winner, whose new album Songs for You, Truths for Me is released on September 29th, became a father at the weekend after his girlfriend Gill gave birth to a baby girl.
