Ah, the perks of fame. Unlike us regular folk (although I’ve yet to be called – knock on wood!) Madonna was sent home from jury duty because she was “too famous.” The superstar showed up earlier today at an NYC courthouse, but was excused 2 hours later. To top if off, she never even had to mingle with the rest of the people in the jury assembly room: she was allowed to hang out in the clerk’s office.
A court official said Madonna was released because they had more than enough jurors to fill the needs of the courts…and then added that her presence would create a distraction in the jury selection process, which we all know was the only real reason! Must be nice!
