Speaking of Madge...

Once I'd recovered from that Dlisted photo enough to read the comments, I saw a post by FrappBloat that referenced this Daily Mail article about Madonna's environmental hypocrisy. All of these fucking "green" celebs are huge hypocrites when it comes to carbon footprints. Madonna joins Sting, Al Gore, Chris Martin and a host of other enviro-hypocrites with her huge personal carbon footprint, which is made many times larger by touring extravagant productions worldwide.


"The emissions generated by the singer's tour are equivalent to that created by 160 Britons in an entire year and equal to the emissions generated by leaving a standard 100 watt lightbulb on for about 4,000 years."

"Among the 250 personnel who will travel with her to every event are nine wardrobe assistants, 12 seamstresses, a 12-piece band, a chiropractor, personal trainer, masseuse, 16 caterers and around 100 technicians and dancers."

"Thirty wardrobe trunks will be transported to each venue containing the singer's massive wardrobe which is made up of more than 3,500 items."


"In July last year, she headlined the Live Earth concert in London to promote climate change despite having a carbon footprint for that year estimated at 1,018 tons. The average Briton produces ten tons of carbon a year.

On stage at Live Earth, Madonna told the audience: 'If you want to save the planet, I want you to start jumping up and down.' She also told fans she was 'talking to the planet'."
Hey Madge? The planet tried to call you back but you were busy eating soy chips or doing Qi Gong or whateverthehell it is you do in your spare time. It wanted me to tell you it's PISSED at you.
