Madonna was supposed to stretch her old bones across the cover of “Fashion Rocks”, a music and fashion supplement that uber-publisher Conde Nast puts out every year. She blew off Anna Wintour at the last minute and icy editrix lady wasn’t thrilled. I’m sure Madonna barely blinked over this decision. Is anyone else concerned that Guy Ritchie is losing his hotness? I know this post is about Madge pissing off Anna Wintour, but Guy looks a little tired here. He used to look like a hefty scoundrel with a killer grin. Is she leeching the soul out of him? Anyway, J.Lo stepped in at the last minute. Funny, her husband looks drained as well. Does Conde Nast only put succubi on their covers?
Fashion Rocks is part of a corporate ad-sales program that also includes a televised concert, set for this Friday. Lopez will perform, along with Usher, Aerosmith, Maroon 5 and others. “The cover is always a performer from the show,” says a Conde spokeswoman. “Madonna was never confirmed for the show; hence she was not in consideration for the cover.”
But my source says Wintour was not expecting a rebuff: “Anna was a little peeved, to say the least.”
Sources say that Madonna is one of the few ladies in the galaxy who can piss off Wintour, and not give one. Madonna can have her put down like a surly poodle, so Anna better watch her bob.
