TV Host Piers Morgan's Vendetta Against Madonna

29 March 2012

TV host Piers Morgan has a serious vendetta against Madonna, going so far as to ban her from appearing on any of his popular talk shows.

Piers started things off when he tweeted Madonna after she joined the site for one day to answer fan questions.

He wrote, "Welcome to Twitter. You're still banned from my show. Love Piers X."

The talk show host, who fronts shows in both the UK and US, didn't go into any further detail as to why Madonna is banned.

In retaliation to Piers bizarre outburst, Madonna's manager Guy Oseary posted a letter from Piers' production company from October (2011) inviting the singer to appear on his show, with the note, 'Really?'

Piers then quickly explained that he had only banned her from his US CNN show, and that the letter was for an appearance on his UK programme- adding that she was now banned from that one too!

He said, "Madonna has only been banned from my CNN show, not my UK show, which sent that invite. But I'm now banning her from that too."

Piers told the Daily Mail last year (2011) that he never wished to interview Madonna on the grounds that she 'boring and considerably less talented than her new, young doppelganger Lady Gaga.'

Ouch!

He also referred to Madonna as 'an irritant in my life for 20 years.'

He has allegedly said that if Madonna were to apologise he may consider letting her appear on one of his programmes, but that otherwise, "it's a lifetime ban."

Anyone else think this is all a little harsh? Seems like he is either trying to get publicity or something has happened to make him hate Madonna so much!

What do you guys think?
