Truth or Boos: Madonna Booed at London Premiere of New Film She Directed
International superstar Madonna is used to receiving all sorts of reactions from fans (or otherwise) and she should definitely be accustomed to negative reviews for her acting ability. (Shanghai Surprise, Who's That Girl? Body of Evidence ring any bells?) Still, she probably wasn't expecting to receive a loud round of boos at the London premiere of the film she has directed, W.E.. a semi-biography of the life of the former Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson. The film has already been widely panned by critics from around the world who have seen the movie, so perhaps the former Material Girl should have anticipated the reaction she received at the London premiere. Looking stunning in a L'Wren Scott dress and flawless hair and makeup, the fifty-three-year-old star didn't appear to be ruffled when her appearance on the Red Carpet brought out "Boos!" from the lively crowd. Despite the negative reviews and reactions, Madonna enjoys the directing process and plans to direct more projects in the future. The negative publicity comes hot on the heels of the news that Madonna's older brother Anthony Ciccone is homeless and living on the streets in Madonna's home state of Michigan! Maybe this is payback for her infamously temperamental reaction to a fan handing her a bouquet of hydrangeas during the Venice film festival!
