Poor Piers Morgan, whose stint as the new-and-diluted fake Larry King got off to a tepid start this week, has launched a pathetic attempt to make himself seem cool and powerful by banning Madonna from his show. Â Stating that Madonna was “too vegan” to be of much interest to his television viewing audience, he said that he’d prefer to stick to people who are more relevant and current, such as Mel Gibson, Barack Obama, or Lindsay Lohan.
Considering how far from the cutting edge Morgan’s interview with Oprah was, perhaps he shouldn’t start banning people and trying to act like he’s all that until he’s established some sort of reputation as the superstar host he seems to think he is. Â In fact, Madonna got the last word when she was asked what she thought about being banned by Piers Morgan – her rep simply replied, “Madonna doesn’t know who Piers Morgan is.” Â Ouch.
