The pop superstar was in the audience for a performance of the musical in New York City on Saturday (18Apr15), when she was reportedly called out by star/writer Lin-Manuel Miranda as he hosted a charity auction at the end of the show.
Taking to Twitter.com to blast an unnamed, famous audience member following the show, he wrote, “Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage #noselfieforyou.”
The message was later deleted, but editors at the New York Daily News reported that Miranda was referring to Madonna.
However, Liz Rosenberg is now clearing up the reports, saying, “It’s not true. She was invited backstage four different times. She texted post show when they were doing their fundraising pitch. Madonna had already made a generous donation.”
