Madonna roasted on Twitter during Golden Globes



madonna.jpgMadonna won a Golden Globe last night in Hollywood. No, not for acting or directing. Be serious. It was for the song Masterpiece, from her new film W.E. (as in "W.E. have no intention of seeing that film ... even on cable.") This isn't shocking news because she was nominated and possibly won solely because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves having A-list celebs attend their annual soiree. (Though the consensus is that we all loved her fingerless gloves.)

But the Twitter-verse wasn't as kind. As soon as she appeared on stage, the barbs came out fast. Here are four of the ones that Stuck in the '80s was compelled to retweet:

"@holymoly If looks could kill, @eltonjohn just did it to #madonna"

"Madonna: Tina Turner called. She wants her accent back."

"Why does Madonna holding the Golden Globe remind me of a Shake Weight commercial?"

And Alec Baldwin himself topped off the night with his tweet: "Madonna looks and sounds like Eddie Thomas...."

Not one to back down from some very restrained ribbing from host Ricky Gervais, who said Madonna remains "just like a virgin," Madge countered with "If I'm still just like a virgin, Ricky. Then why don't you come over here and do something about it. I haven't kissed a girl in a few years. On TV."
