Last night, Madonna confessed to Jimmy Fallon that she’d always wanted to be a standup comedian. He promptly gave her a microphone and told her to try out any material she’d been working on. The result was unexpectedly hilarious, although, strangely enough, the jokes she told were almost EXACTLY the same jokes that comedian and professional Madonna impersonator Nadya Ginsberg uses in her Madonnalogues show.
So IS Madonna copying her imitator?
“I KNOW IT SOUNDS CRAZY,” Nadya said when we reached out to her for a reaction, “but when you look at the evidence it’s hard not to disagree and I have been flooded with fans telling me to believe it’s true as well.”
Decide for yourself. Compare and contrast Nadya’s joke about trolling her son’s friends for dates, and Madge’s take on the same thing. Coincidence?
But what if Madonna was actually cribbing her material from Nadya? What kind of case does Nadya have? Can a person steal material from someone who uses THEM for material? I don’t know, I don’t know. It’s a logistical hall of mirrors that’s probably best not to think too hard about.
Nadya needs your help funding the next season of her Madonnalogues on Youtube. Check out her Kickstarter ASAP!
Hot on the high heels of her critically acclaimed series Madonnalogues comes a new season with everything you loved about the first season with less focus on storyline and more variety.
In order to shoot 10 Episodes and deliver them weekly, Nadya needs your support to rent camera and lighting gear, pay hair and make up people, buy props and costumes, secure locations, and provide vegan, cruelty free kosher meals in a post apocalyptic craft service setting so she can populate the world with TV friendly, multi-ethnic babies. For examples of Nadya Ginsburg’s work which has developed an international cult following, check out her youtube page here: http://www.youtube.com/nadyaginsburg
