Madonna's Surprise at the British Comedy Awards

Madonna's Surprise at the British Comedy Awards

Madonna made a surprise appearance at the British Comedy Awards last night at London's Television Centre. She was on hand to present an award to Sacha Baron Cohen for Borat (yes that is him as a normal person in the photo on the right with his fiancee Isla), but that's not what created the buzz. Jonathan Ross who was hosting the event said something super inappropriate about her new baby David. Here's more:

Shortly before she gave the award to Ali G impersonator Cohen, Ross said to her: "Congratulations on your little lovely black baby, David. Are you stopping there, or getting more? When I went to Africa all I got was a wallet."

To which a less-than-amused Madonna replied: "You might go home with a black eye."

The US superstar, who is married to British film director Guy Ritchie, immediately stopped smiling - and walked out before the after-party had even begun.

So innappropriate Jonathan! It is pretty cool to see Sacha out of character with his cute girl Isla. To watch the clip of Madonna on stage, and for more of Sacha Baron Cohen, Isla Fisher, Jack Black, Paul Bettany and Courtney Love just

That's inappropriate. She should have given him a black eye IMO.

OMFG. Someone would have to hold me back if I were in Madonna's shoes. Joke: I went to London and all I got was some sh--ty food. Not a joke: I went to Africa and all I got was a wallet, not a little black baby.

It was funny. He should talk about Madonna, not her adopted son David.

There is no way, in one million-bazillion years, that Madonna would have gone onstage without knowing exactly what was going to be said. I heard she's trying to use the media to make light of it, as opposed to focusing on the controversy. Folks, don't fear, Madge controls everything and she would have been in on this, especially since it was Jonathan Ross and he's known for crude comments ;)

I don't like Madonna, but I think that was a pretty good come-back she gave him!

Funkyfeet I agree...she -as she has shown here- can defend herself David can't....I would have decked him.

Mar and Jen76...we do have a difference sense of humour but what he said WAS very rude. Jonathan Ross the presenter is known for pushing his jokes WAY too far...Madonna living in the UK with her advisers and PR people would have known this. He has been criticized in the press for his comments....this situation is sensitive enough without his stupid comment...which was not funny IMO...esp as the child was very ill when she got him. He was making a morckey of the his race and her for adopting him, almost looking down on her. Having been fostered into a white family as a child I think this is very offensive.

It was fantastic to hear Sacha Baron Cohen out of character! A big fan. ______________________________________________ I must say, adolescence is one hell of a ride!

If he wants to make fun of her then fine but he should have left her son out of it.

whats an a**hole...that's so out of line of him to say that... i wish madonna gave him a shiner... "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

You may be right, mar. The whole audience laughed at each joke, so I guess it couldn't have been too out there for them. :?

if I am not mistaken the Brits idea of comedy is a little different then America. Maybe it was not as rude because it was a U.K show. Brits are more sarcastic from what I have seen. JK Boogie, what do u think?

Totally inappropriate comment. She should have decked him. That would have been great.

the wallet bit it implies that the baby was picked up as a trinket or souvenir. and i don't like the "lovely little black" reference either. sounds as if he's referring to a cat or a dress. have you noticed that adopted children are almost always referred to as such. we don't ever say "she has 2 biological children" but "they have 2 adopted kids" is very common. why do we have to focus on that? why couldn't he have said "congratulations on your recent addition?" or "you have a new baby at your house, can we talk about that". i'm bringing naughty back :naughty_elves:
