I read this in the paper, I thought my dyslexia kicked in again. I thought, ‘That can’t be right.’ Do you realize the way things are going, Jennifer Lopez will have four rings before the Lakers do.” He later joked, “You know, there is a worry that bin Laden may act again. Hey, forget that. You know what I’m worried about? Madonna may act again. And nobody — nobody wants to see that.”

Madonna sent the book to pals with the note “read it or else” attached. “When Maripol told Madonna that she hadn’t had the time to look at the book she flipped out,” a source said, referring to her jewellery designer Maripol. “She said that all she needed to do was read it a little bit. She is now refusing to talk to her until she takes a peek at the book. It’s not a major fall-out between the pair, Madonna just wants her religious side to be appreciated.”
