Patti LuPone vs. Madonna is one feud that we didn’t see coming, but here we are! The Broadway vet slammed the other singer’s acting abilities on ‘Watch What Happens Live’s May 9 episode, and fans are furious. Here’s what’s going on!
First, watch Patti LuPone, 68, diss Madonna’s acting skills on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen above. Savage!
Patti played the title role in the original production of Evita on Broadway, and when asked about Madonna’s performance in the movie adaptation, the two-time Tony winner did not hold back. “I thought it was a piece of shit,” Patti declared. “Madonna is a movie killer. She’s dead behind the eyes. She couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be on film or on stage. She’s a wonderful performer for what she does, but she is not an actress.” OMG!
While some people agreed with Patti’s assessment of Madonna’s acting, the “Ghosttown” singer’s fans were quick to jump to her defense. “Patti sounds so bitter, not a good look,” one fan commented on YouTube. “Madonna and her Golden Globes say hi,” another wrote. So what does Madonna think of all this? We’ll keep you posted!
