Rude Madonna Snubs Locals

Madonna has been severely criticized by Maltese locals, where she is currently filming 'Love, Sex, Drugs and Money', directed by husband Guy Ritchie. Residents of Gudja on Malta are disappointed and appalled by the star's diva attitude.

During production, Madonna is renting a farmhouse in the village, but is refusing to meet local people, preffering to move around in a heavily guarded car, aided by an entourage of staff.

One local vocally expressed his annoyance at the star's appalling attitude. "We were all excited when we heard she was coming, but now we think she's just a big snob. She's surrounded by bodyguards and hides in cars all the time. She is not humble and her fame has gone to her head. "
