The latest edition of Piers Morgan's weekly diary as published in the U.K.'s "Daily Mail" is out. Titled "I'd finally found common ground with Madonna. Neither of us has sung live at the Super Bowl," Morgan immediately takes aim at his favorite adversary and her recent half time performance from the Super Bowl:
"...it was every bit as embarrassing, inappropriate and toe-curling as I expected, as she lip-synched and crotch-thrusted her way through a medley of her old hits and some gruesome new song that sounded like something you’d hear in a cheap Belgian disco. Twitter exploded with 8,000 tweets a SECOND commenting on her performance – most of them from me."
Proving that his opinions remain consistent continent to continent, Morgan mirrored his sentiment during a recent "Piers Morgan Tonight" segment entitled "Only in America."
Elsewhere in Morgan's diary, he delved back into the topic of Ron Paul. The Republican Presidential candidate had sat down with the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host during a recent stop in Las Vegas, and though Morgan was struck by Paul's energy, he did take issue with his pop culture acumen:
He’s a fascinating character, the oldest candidate by far at 76, yet also the one with the most energy and the biggest youth and social-media following. So I assumed he’d have his finger firmly on the populist pulse. We met inside Koi restaurant at the Planet Hollywood Casino, where I had recently dined with Sylvester Stallone. This, I thought, would give me a great intro. ‘I was last here with the man who played Rocky Balboa, an underdog people’s hero who won against all the odds… see any parallels?’ The congressman paused, then replied: ‘Who’s Rocky Balboa?’
