Madonna, the queen of pop, became queen of tarts, after she went in search of a sugar rush to help her through her first attempts at directing a film.
The global superstar was spotted directing her new 30-minute comedy, ‘Filth And Wisdom’, in Exmouth market, London.
But before there were any lights, camera or action, Her Madgesty, took time to fuss over cakes, tarts and biscuits on display at the vendors’ stalls.
Wearing no make-up, scruffy hair and baggy white sweat pants, the lady in-charge told one stall worker: ‘Those (cakes) are very bad.’
But in the end he persuaded her, saying: ‘I managed to sell her a lemon tart for 1.50.’
Squinting in the sunshine, she then returned to her director’s chair for her sunglasses, sipping on a Starbucks and sending text messages.
The 48-year-old stunned shoppers when she and a 20 strong crew rolled in to film at a local chemists.
One passer by said: ‘It was a huge surprise to see such a big star. She looked in great shape for someone her age and treated us all to a little tour.
But while fans were thrilled, her production crew were left waiting around and yawning and smoking in anticipation.
Flanked by three security staff and her assistant, she was in no mood to be approached.
Chemist staff working inside the store, said:
‘She didn’t talk to us.’
‘I smiled at her and she ignored me’
‘She was very moody, very unapproachable and didn’t talk to anyone.
‘She looked tired and awful.’
