Queen of pop MADONNA still has the ability to get men fighting over her - as boyfriend GUY RITCHIE and comic ALI G proved at the MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS.
Ali - real name SACHA BARON COHEN - appeared in the star's MUSIC video, and took advantage of the chance to have a laugh at the stunning 42-year-old singer's expense when he introduced her performance of the hit song. He called her, "a material girl who, like a virgin, consistently produces work worthy of masturbation. Even though she's just had a nipper, I still would."
Not to be outdone, SNATCH director Ritchie, father of Madonna's four-month-old son ROCCO, got in on the action when he presented an award to MOBY. He said, "I want to give a big up to the missus for winning so many awards and keeping little Rocco in nappies." He added, "Ali G is in trouble for speaking about my woman like that. I definitely would - in fact I definitely did." (NFA/WNTMI/RGS)
