In an interview with the Yo on E! satellite radio show, Madonna said that the media should leave her younger pop peer Britney Spears alone. “They need to step off,” Madge said. “For real … Let’s go save her.” She added that her 11-year-old daughter Lourdes feels likewise. “She knows Britney, (but) she doesn’t really watch TV or read gossip stuff,” Madonna explained. “I think she sort of gets the drift of what’s going on, and I think she feels very protective of Britney.” Madonna also called speculation that she and husband Guy Ritchie were planning on a divorce “ridiculous”.

Eric West Talks About Meeting Madonna
March 14, 2008 – Actor Eric West talks Madonna on his blog at MySpace (@ericxwest). He writes, “I’ve seen no other than Madonna 3 times this week, wait 3 days in a row at the gym, and this time, she spoke to us! My good friend Kathryn is the best, she like.. dude, is she talking to us with a confused face because of course we all can see Madonna’s in the same room but no one wants to bother her. But she asked us about a dance she was working on and we’re like maybe she’s talking to the air. She can’t be talking to us. If I see Madonna one more time! I’m going to swear we are best friends. I’ve met her on a more personal level years ago, I can’t say I’ve ever been a huge fan, but now I am. I don’t even know what to say other the fact that she is actually a nice human being for one of the most famous people who ever lived? Today she was talking to people in the gym, even the towel girl, front desk. It’s a weird feeling spending most of your work out working out next to… Madonna.”
