Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.
Today’s top gossip:
Madonna has been forced out of her personal gym by wolf whistling builders. The singer has been converting the house next door to her home in Mayfair, London, into a state of the art gym for the past seven months – but every time the pop star leaves her house she gets leered at by the builders. It got so bad the ‘Hard Candy’ star had to decamp to her personal trainer’s gym in St John’s Wood. An unnamed friend of the songstress said: “Madonna felt as if she has been living in a siege situation. The noise of the drilling meant she was forced to listen to her iPod at full volume, potentially damaging her ears” (Daily Mirror).
