“How did Madonna react to that?” asks Smith.
“She wasn’t very happy,” says Madonna, referring to herself in the third person. Then she adds that she doesn’t think she’s a particularly tough mom and could probably stand to be stricter with her kids.
“It’s hard,” Madonna continues. “Every day is a negotiation. But cigarette smoking I’m not very fond of — for anyone.”
(Note: She’s also not fond of hydrangeas.)
When Smith points out that there’s footage of Madge smoking in her “Girl Gone Wild” video, she replies — apparently not noting the irony, “I don’t smoke. That’s just an accessory, Harry. There’s a difference.”
Ah. See below for the results of our “how many pictures of Madonna smoking can we find in 5 minutes” self-challenge. Hint: She “accessorizes” a lot and has been for years.
