Madonna calls Guy Ritchie “emotionally retarded”

Madonna in concertMadonna, 50, performed onstage in Boston for 30,000 fans yesterday after earlier in the day announcing she’s getting a divorce from British director Guy Ritchie. While introducing the song, “Miles Away,” which was written about Ritchie, she dedicated it to, “Anybody who knows someone who is emotionally retarded,” adding, “You may know a few people like that. God knows I do.” The pop singer married Ritchie, 10 years her junior, in December 2000. She’s reportedly worth $518 million and has hired divorce attorney Fiona Shackleton, who is also Prince Charles’ lawyer and represented Sir Paul McCartney during his divorce proceedings.

    Guy Ritchie’s emotionally retarded? Wasn’t she the one caught cheating with a well-known baseball player whose wife then divorced him? And if he’s so emotionally retarded, next time find a guy your own age, you wrinkled retard. Who’s home with your kids, Slutonna? They even let you adopt one and who’s raising it? Which member of this marriage is at home in Britain with the kids? It’s certainly not you.

    This woman is such an idiot. Why she is still able to go out on tour and make millions is really what’s retarded.

  5. Whatever • October 16, 2008 @ 6:23 PM

    wow. sheer desperation to try and get herself to look good, since EVERYONE knows she cheated on her husband, WHO MUST BE SOMEWHAT RETARDED SINCE HE MARRIED HER.

    get a life woman. and start taking proper care of your family. i feel so sorry for your kids.

    Hey Madonna…he can’t be that retarded seeing as ur gonna hafta pay him big bucks in alimony for putting up with ur skanky a$$ for all these years. Guy is laffing his retarded a$$ all the way to the bank! Go retard go!

  7. tributegirl • October 16, 2008 @ 9:34 PM

    Every one of these comments are bang on. I’ve never been able to stand Madge.

  8. Matthew • October 17, 2008 @ 7:01 AM

    F*** Madonna! She is f***ing old and still behave like a teen. She must get an older guy and see what Guy meant in her life. anyways she just a whore and a cheater.I can’t personally stand her music, or maybe I am emotional retard!

  9. Glenda • October 17, 2008 @ 8:49 AM

    I agree with everyone’s comments. She is a total sleaze bag and always will be. She thought becoming a mother and writing a children’s book and pretending to be an “English Rose” would make people forget what she was like years back….a foul-mouthed tart! No doubt the adopted child will end up going back to where he came from when the country (of origin) get wind of this divorce, they were not keen on her adopting him in the first place! I have never been a fan of hers and would not go and see her even if I got a free ticket!

  10. tributegirl • October 17, 2008 @ 9:26 AM

    Totally agree, Glenda, except that she still IS what she was years back! She is one nasty piece of work.

    Poor Madonna…virgin, sex symbol (in her mind), Catholic Italian, Earth Mother, Kabbalahist, and now a 50-year-old “Immaterial Girl”. Stop reinventing yourself as the package can change, but the product remains the same (and it’s well past its expiry date).

  12. Kiki • October 17, 2008 @ 11:34 AM

    Wow. My comments pale in comparison. You all gave me a good laugh. Thanks! I just wanted to say … Madonna isn’t mature or stable enough to know what emotionally retarded is. Well, maybe sometimes when she looks in the mirror. I hope Guy takes the high road & keeps quiet about any intimate details. That’s what mature ADULT people do. Any one with that kind of notoriety should keep their mouths shut and not stoop to that level. I never could understand the Madonna craze – she’s not that good of a singer. Maybe her & Rosie will hook-up & disappear into the sunset. The world is better off without their big opinionated mouths.

    I agree, Stephen. Old ‘cone tits’ expired long ago! Just because someone is an old hag doesn’t make them a wise old hag. I’ll tell you one thing, she’s sure no Eva Longoria!! +o(

  14. Stargazer • October 17, 2008 @ 2:15 PM

    Even Roseanne Barr schools her…LOL Nancy

  15. jd • October 17, 2008 @ 4:39 PM

    You guys are hilarious and soooo dead on!
    Emotionally retarded? Hmmmmm……and so the mud-slinging begins.

  16. Nancy • October 17, 2008 @ 6:44 PM

    I don’t know about Guy and Madge but, I don’t sling mud anymore myself….I’ve moved on to slinging bird sh!t…they seem to like it better when it splatters on their feces…oh, I mean, faces!! Hahahahahahaha! TGIF!!

  17. M • October 17, 2008 @ 7:08 PM

    wow considering she is an old whore who has more men in her than the marine corp she needs to be quiet. her husband dealt with her bitchiness and undermining him at every turn even at his movies premieres. not to mention that weirdo cult she belongs to. good riddance to bad rubbish. he needs to get his shots and move on he is better off.

  18. Yawnie • October 18, 2008 @ 12:08 AM

    And this was Britney’s role model? ’nuff said?

  19. kathy • October 18, 2008 @ 10:20 AM

    you guys gave me a good laugh for a saturday morning! loved the comments!

  20. Sheila • October 18, 2008 @ 10:58 AM

    Your comments above are absolutely hilarious. Love to read what the younger set has to say AND the way they say it!

  21. Bobby • October 18, 2008 @ 10:16 PM


  22. Sarah • October 18, 2008 @ 10:28 PM

    Yah you guys are hilarious. I’m sure Madonna is so worried about the opinions of a bunch of half-wits who waste their time writing insults about her on an internet site. Priceless. I’m sure you’re all very mature and intelligent too. What a joke. What do you know about Guy Ritchie? What’s he, an angel?

  23. Nancy • October 18, 2008 @ 11:07 PM

    Well dear Sarah, you just called yourself a ‘half-wit’ too….PRICELESS! What do you know about Guy…or Madonna for that matter, Sarah? I’m pretty sure that everyone who comments here on Tribute knows that the stars don’t come on here and read the things we write about them…LMFAO! I’m also pretty sure, judging by the comments, that no one really gives a sh!t if Madonna were to read this or not!

  24. Jo-Anne. • October 19, 2008 @ 12:39 AM

    Actually Sarah, I’m with you,with regards to the Guy Ritchie remark, finally someone gets it.

    And for the record, it’s clear to me your half-wit comment was directed at those posting insults at Madonna (I mean, you actually stated that) so yes, once again, not surprisingly Nancy gets it wrong.

    What do any of us really know about these celebrities? We’re pretty much stuck with what the media spits out.

    oh, excuse me, I just have to get Angelina’s coat for her and wave goodbye to her and Brad….

  25. Nancy • October 19, 2008 @ 1:13 AM

    I didn’t get anything wrong, Hagatha. We’re here to give our opinions on the topic of Madonna & Guy and it is very clear that not many of us are members of the Madonna fan club…except Sarah and yourself, of course. Now, taking into consideration that I insulted Madge by calling her “old cone tits”…if I am a half-wit what does that make you? Because this ‘half-wit’ can out smart you in my sleep! As for your above comment, what happened, 12:39 am….bouncers throw you out of the bar again? LMFAO.

  26. Jo-Anne. • October 19, 2008 @ 1:23 AM

    I believe the bouncers were prying you off the pole….

  27. Madge • October 19, 2008 @ 10:50 AM

    Hey, you guys have it all wrong, I didn’t mean GUY was emotionally retarded, I meant JO-ANNE was emotionally retarded!

  28. tributegirl • October 19, 2008 @ 2:19 PM

    Your popularity seems to be increasing, Jo!

  29. Nancy • October 19, 2008 @ 8:53 PM

    Well, if I was on the poll, at least one of us earns a living! LMAO. 😛

  30. Nancy • October 19, 2008 @ 8:54 PM

    We can’t all sit around and collect the gov’t. cheques…

  31. Nancy • October 20, 2008 @ 4:46 PM

    Take your time, Jo….think up a good one! 😛

  32. Velvet • October 20, 2008 @ 10:47 PM

    Thanks for the laughs everyone!

    I’m not surprised by this announcement, but surprised it took them 7.5 years to figure out that they are wrong for each other. My heart goes out to the children and trust they, in particular, Madonna will be an adult and descrete about the situation for the kids’ sake.

    Karma is an interesting thing and Madonna should be very careful how she conducts herself because the apple never falls far from the tree and I think her daughter, Lordes, might just follow suit and give her the heartache she gave her father over her lyrics, books, language, comments, etc.

    Take the high road Madonna for the sake of your children. Good luck Guy and I hope you get at least 100 million for your pain and suffering.

    Peace out!
