When Madonna walks down the hall, plebs must avert their gaze for fear of turning blind from the sheer brilliance radiating from the Material Girl.

Sounds like Madonna was all smiles and compliments for Canada in general and TIFF in particular, when she visited the festival Monday to promote her new film, W.E., about famous divorcé, the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson. One observer even heard her thank the festival’s orange-shirted volunteers.

It was a bit of a different story backstage, however, when eight of those volunteers were asked to turn their faces to a wall so that they would not look at the pop-star-turned-movie-director as she made her way to her press conference about the film.

Was it her beauty or was it the fact she wasn’t wearing make-up and any eye contact would have turned them into stone? America deserves the truth.

And she was friendly to everybody; there was none of this turn your back, don’t look her in the eye, She took photographs, she signed autographs. I think this whole thing is a fabrication.” Charlene Coy, director of publicity for… Read more »

It was probably for their own safety to prevent them from turning to stone.
