Madonna Is Trending on Twitter for an Unexpected Reason - Find Out Why

Madonna is trending – but the actual news has nothing to do with Madonna.

It was recently revealed that Madonna refused to work with this famous producer due to his astrological sign.

Rupert Everett Reveals Why Former Friend Madonna No Longer Trusts Him

Rupert Everett is opening up about his former friendship with Madonna and why she doesn’t trust him anymore.

The two stars worked together on the 2000 movie The Next Best Thing, in which he played her gay best friend and they had a baby together. The movie only grossed $14.9 million in the U.S. and was a big box office dud.

Rupert gave an interview to The Sunday Telegraph‘s Stellar magazine and he was asked about his friendship with Madonna.

“We don’t see each other anymore. I do miss it,” Rupert said (via Daily Mail). “She’s an amazing person and that part of my life was incredibly exciting. To be doing a film with her and to be a friend of hers and to have been such a fan of hers. But the fallout from the movie’s failure was gigantic for me, like an outer-space explosion.”

Rupert and Madonna became friends in 1985 and in his 2006 memoir, he wrote about his early experiences with her, including an incident that involved her ex Sean Penn.

“She really didn’t like [the book],” Rupert previously told Express in 2009. “I think it is very affectionate, and certainly with her I was very careful to only write things that were. But she felt it was an infringement of privacy… Goddesses like that are obsessed with their public image and want to control everything about it, so if anyone is to tell anyone anything about her it’s got to be her.”

A famous DJ recently revealed why Madonna would not make an album with him.

She calls me afterwards…she tells me that she loves this remix and she suggests that I produce her next album,” he explained during a “True or False”-type anecdote guessing game.

“I arrive for lunch. We talk about everything, the music, what she wants to do with the album. Super nice. It’s just her and me. Very relaxed, very cool. We have lunch. It’s happening. very good and you wonder when we start working together,” he continued.

“She asks me for my astrological sign. I answer her Scorpio. Suddenly, she makes a face and she says to me, ‘I’m sorry, we’re not going to be able to work together. It was a pleasure to know you. Goodbye.’”

He then confirmed that the story was true during the game!

During the episode, Christina talked about her infamous 2003 MTV VMAs performance, in which she and Britney Spears shared a kiss with Madonna.

Madonna, first of all, the queen of reinventing herself, was a huge inspiration. When I was little, I was not allowed to listen to her or watch her videos or anything. It was just like a no-no, but then whenever you grow up, and I discovered her catalog and her videos and the fact that she had such a message,” Christina said.

“Her documentary, Truth or Dare, was a really big part of, ‘Oh my God, you don’t have to just, quote unquote, sing a song. You literally can just say so much more and go so much deeper.’ Truly, the way you see her image changed through the albums. I mean, that was a big inspiration for me to want to change it up, to want to keep pushing, to grow, to reinvent myself, to discover more things about me and myself as an artist.”

She also talked about the response to the performance.

“Shock value gets more and more extreme or whatever. But honestly, at the time, yeah, I never thought anything of it. It was like, ‘Okay, it’s two girls kissing.’ It wasn’t shocking back then. It’s not shocking now, to me. But it’s so many things,” she explained.

Christina also live-tweeted while watching the new Mulanhere’s what she said about it!
