On April 17 2002, David Williamson spoke to news.com.au about working with Madonna on her West End debut in Up For Grabs, and how she prefers to be called M, not Madge.
Williamson told the new site that Madonna hates the nickname British newspapers have given her:
“They call her Madge to try to domesticate her and she hates it. One of the actors didn’t realise and called her that in rehearsals and got a fairly sharp response.”
What is your favourite Madonna nickname? What do you call her?
During the SEX book phase, me and my friend called her MaDyka. We didn’t mean it in a bad way. Even today her nickname is used once in a while.
Her name is Madonna although sometimes I like to call her Evita and Wallis.
