Piers Morgan blasts Madonna’s ‘toe-curling’ performance of Vogue while isolated


Around the world, people are self-isolating to limit the spread of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus. And they are finding creative ways to stay busy.

And though Madonna tried to cheer people up by sharing a silly video via Instagram on Friday, Piers Morgan was less than amused by her performance.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 54, took to Twitter on Saturday to hit out at the rendition the iconic singer, 61, had put on, saying it was a ‘toe-curling’  experience.

Not mincing his words, Piers wrote: ‘No no no no no. I can take anything in this crisis but these toe-curling celebrity isolation videos.’

This is not the first time the TV presenter has critiqued a celebrity for how they document their self-isolation, nor will it probably be the last time.

On Thursday, Piers blasted Sam Smith for their ‘celebrity attention-seeking b******t’ during the coronavirus crisis, and told them to ‘get a grip’ after they shared images of their ‘stages of a quarantine meltdown’.

On Friday, Madonna shared a silly video of herself singing a social distancing version of her hit song Vogue into a hairbrush.

The Queen of Pop changed some lyrics in her song to be about running out of food and eating what is available.
