Cher Public

No! pazzo son! Guardate!

Says a “reliable Italian gossip site,”La cinquantenne Madonna non poteva farselo scappare: la nonna rock è impazzita per Jonas Kaufmann definito il più bel tenore del mondo. Lui è fresco di separazione e la signora Ciccone non aspettava altro: lo ha chiamato con la scusa di un duetto per il suo prossimo disco. Come si fa a dire di no a Madonna? Non è possibile. I due si sono incontrati a Londra per una mostra di Christopher Makos e, secondo gli intimi, sarebbe scattata la passione.”

  • Salome Where She Danced

    “Jonas Kauffmann is ALL man, and I’m the dame to prove it!,” Madonna vowed.

  • Feldmarschallin

    Well I am sure he would learn quite a few things in the bedroom from her. Guess she is the exact opposite type of his wife who seems very bieder.

  • Constantine A. Papas

    He must be desperate!

  • manou

    Here is a reliable piece of information: there has been no Christopher Makos exhibition in London since October 2009.

    • Satisfied

      Well done, Manou!

    • “There is no such place as London.”

    • Yes, but is it important?

      • manou

        If it deserves a special thread on Parterre it is not only important, it is vital.

    • Gualtier M

      Perhaps Madame Ciccone invited Jummy Jonas up to her London apartment to view the Christopher Makos etchings she exhibits in her boudoir…

  • Satisfied

    Jonas…RUNNNNN!!!!!!!

    Piotr Beczala just wired me he is dating Lady Gaga…..

    La cieca gave me permesso to do this:

    Parterre Box (where they know even the date of the end of the world) just announced the rumor of Madonna dating Jonas Kauffman…….Well, I am now convinced that within a few days the following pairs will be revealed:

    Piotr Beczala and Lady Gaga?
    Justin Bieber and Montserrat Caballe (he sings better than Marti)
    Larry Brownlee and Michelle..what’s her name?
    Sam Ramey and Anna Netrebko (Lindsay…hit him with a broom!!!!!!)
    Charlie Handelman and and soprano with more chest than Galvany

    When Jonas and Madonna have sex..they will each quote Puccini..and say,”Davanti alla Madonna.”

  • Rudolf

    It’d be a perfect temporary arrangement:
    Madonna could rehearse for her Broadway appearance in the newly discovered Tennessee Williams play “The Tenor and the Strumpet”, whereas Jonas could prepare himself for these lines … “Numi! che dissi? No! … non e ver! … no! … sogno … delirio e questo …”
    All in good fun … or … with good fun!

      “Madonna could rehearse for her Broadway appearance in the newly discovered Tennessee Williams play The Tenor and the Strumpet

      …or, if this is more like a short-lived fling, maybe Lend Me A Tenor would be more appropriate?

    “Ah, how fortune waits in hiding to surprise us!” … First line of an ensemble from Menotti’s LAST SAVAGE that I have remembered from the first time I heard the opera when it was first performed at the MET. Many other “catchy” tuneful moments in this score that will be streamed in video tonight and tomorrow from Indiana University Opera. Good luck kids. Watch it here:

    • Rackon

      Going to see The Last Savage live -- heard good things about the production so I’m looking f I reward to it!

  • When she busts his balls I hope it won’t hurt his voice!

    Roxxy,

    She will not hurt his voice per se, but he may end up as countertenor!

  • Feldmarschallin
    • manou

      Thanks Feld. All is crystal clear now: “If it ejects the Angel, she feels exactly when a man bites. Then she pulls mercilessly.”

      Not forgetting Bachler and his spitting in the soup.

      • Quanto Painy Fakor

        Yes, and that answers the question: “Why is Des Grieux from Manon does not matter?”

  • Feldmarschallin

    • FragendeFrau82

      After listening to Neuenfels, I can see why (per JK) Anna Netrebko had difficulty understanding him and they needed translators to work together. She must know some German by now, but I found his speech impossible to follow.

      • Feldmarschallin

        Well it is not impossible to follow but I think the years of smoking and drinking have made his voice rather dark and gravely. But he doesn’t speak with any sort of accent.
