The Material Girl and Mrs Coldplay aren’t too popular with a particular person…

Queen Of Pop Madonna has been heavily criticised by American DJ and writer Michael Savage in his new book.

Not only does Savage take a swipe at Madge, but also at her friend and Chris Martin’s missus Gwyneth Paltrow.  The New York Post reports him saying, "Here's a woman who made a career as a pseudo-pornographic belly dancer cavorting with a whip, and now suddenly, after having a baby, she pretends to be a holy woman riding her bicycle in England on her country estate with her imbecilic buddy, Gwyneth Paltrow. They both fled America because America wasn't clean enough for their offspring. In Madonna's view, we're a spiritually bankrupt nation — which she helped create! What could Madonna know about the sacred arm of Judaism? Answer: Nothing!"

But who is Michael Savage to launch such a scathing criticism?  Those in the UK might not have heard of him, but his radio shows pull in ten million listeners and he is the author of 18 books, including 2 best sellers.  But if you think about it, David Beckham’s had a best seller, so it isn’t actually that impressive.
