Body of Evidence star unfairly maligned...

Per the IMDB [some editing done]:

"Pop legend Madonna has slammed director Norman Jewison for his scathing criticism of her acting abilities. The Moonstruck film-maker attacked movie bosses for giving the Material Girl a succession of coveted movie roles, despite her lack of talent. But Madonna insists she wouldn't have achieved her superstar status if she wasn't a skilled entertainer.

"Jewison says, "Madonna? It's all hype...Madonna has a small amount of talent when it comes to movies. And we're all being suffocated by talentless stars in films. I can't believe that people are obsessed like they are now with celebrity. I don't know what's going on."

"But Madonna's spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg told gossip website The Scoop, "I completely disagree with his statement about Madonna making a lot out of a little talent. I don't think you can sell 100 million records and sell out arenas and stadiums for over 20 years just being a celebrity. Madonna is a Golden Globe winner and a Grammy winner and has had an unprecedented career as an artist and actress."

Wow, Madonna's publicist has come to her defense. That's bold. And really, Jewison's argument that Madonna has recieved film work when she's an untalented actress is completely undercut by the information that she's "a Grammy winner" and "sell[s] out arenas" and has "sold 100 million records." Plus, she's won a Golden Globe! Heck, you might as well attack fellow GG winner Pia Zadora while you're at it!

Also, I agree that Madonna has had an "unprecedented" career as an actress.

Madonna's performing ability is a great example of an Informed Attribute. ((c) Jabootu all Rights Reserved)

Come on, guys. She obviously has tremendous acting talent. Just think, for decades now she's had to act like she's taking herself seriously and she's never broken character once. Not while being photographed naked with Vanilla Ice. Not while releasing a children's book. Not while seducing Warren Beatty. Any mere mortal would have cracked up laughing at the absurdity years ago.

Wh...? Huh...? Number of records sold = acting talent?

Guess that means that Elvis was really ripped off for that Oscar, doesn't it?
