    Madonna Says No Hunting
    December 30, 2002
    Madonna has banned hunting from her country estate because she's worried the souls of dead birds will return to haunt her.

    The pop queen has had a dramatic change of heart about animal rights, having previously worn fur coats and enjoyed country pursuits such as shooting game birds.



    The Material Girl's decision is said to have been influenced by her belief in the teachings of the Jewish mystical tradition Kabbalah.

    Some Kabbalah followers believe in the evolutionary progress of the soul through reincarnation - and Madonna is now reported to have decided that every bird she shoots will lead to retribution for her in the next life.

    According to British newspaper The Mail On Sunday, the True Blue singer has told husband Guy Ritchie that there will no longer be any hunting on their Ashcombe estate in Wiltshire, England.

    The move is said to have caused friction between Madonna and Guy, a devoted huntsman since an early age.

    A friend of the Snatch director says, "Guy thinks it's ridiculous. He loves Ashcombe and is very proud of the shoot there. He thinks it's mad to own such a beautiful estate and not be allowed to shoot there".

    "But it's Madonna's place - it was her money that bought it - so what she says goes."

    Not much for music, not much for thinking. Unfortunately, the younger generation may be influenced by her. :(

    I doubt it - she's "old news". Even her last couple movies failed miserably at the box office.

    May the ghosts of a thousand birds infest her empty head.

    Ok..that's nice. So pass the damn peas lady.

    Or at least that's what I would have said if I were married to the wench.:p

    She bans hunting from her private estate where only the affluent will ever have the chance to shoot a pheasant, much less own a gun.

    No great loss.

    Good Shooting

    Honey, wake up! I had a nightmare about millions of pheasants coming after me. Screeching and Caaawwkking something awful.
    Oh god, the poor miserable little souls.

    Some peoples kids. Worrying about the soul of deceased gamefowl after the rest of her exemplary lifestyle.

    Sheesh. How touching.

    Adios

    Not a Jew

    Dear Madonna,

    You are not a Jew. I am. You are not welcome to my religion.

    :neener:

    With all your $$$$s, though, I could be bribed; just "lose" the screaming bird BS:evil:

    Madonna is over 40yo now, definately "old news" to the youth market. It has been almost 20yrs ago that she came out with her first big hit "Like a Virgin".

    Used up as a singer.

    No luck as an actress.

    Didn't fly as porn queen.

    So now she wants to go the Shirley McClaine spiritual route.

    Why do these people, much like the Klintons, never go away. Why do we listen to any syllable they utter.

    And now Michael Jackson wants to start a new children's charity.

    Maybe for babies who fall off of tall buildings.

    Bread and circuses, all.:neener:

    She banned hunting of animals on her estate..

    She probably didn't want anybody to eliminate another venue of her experimental sexuality. :uhoh:

    She is a great entertainer, and I really do love her music.

    That is about where my regard for celebrities end. Most all of them are really pretty nutty...

    OTOH, I do not agree with hunting just for the "fun" of it. Is Guy planning on eating those birdies, or just shootin' em for kicks?

    Her money, her land, her opinion.

    I have no problem with it, but dont really understand why someone thought this was "news".

    I for one will never hunt again. IMHO if everyone followed the teachings of such enlightened individuals as Madonna, Barbara Steisand (sp?) and the other superior lifeforms from Hollywood, the world would clearly be a better place. :rolleyes:

    Maybe she just came to realize, that the male pheasant is called a cock, and we all know how she feels about them.

    What a moron! I guess she has finally lost it. She is washed up as an entertainer so I guess she is trying to find her true self.

    Hmmmm...well, if she doesn't want hunting on the property she owns, that's her right.

    I'd have to respect that.

    Dead birds coming back in a future life to seek revenge?

    Wow. If Alfred Hitchcock were alive, he'd have just scored the theme of the sequel to The Birds...

    Kevinch, you beat me to it... :D I was just going to suggest a remake of "The Birds", starring you-know-who - only this time the birds get to finish the job, and she's launched into eternity with the ghosts of seagulls past pursuing her shade from tree to tree! :D

    That is the least of her worries, she should be worried about the retribution for posing as a singer.

    I sometimes think it's a horrible penalty for some terrible thing I did in a prior life.

    But I still can't bring myself to believe in the reincarnation of angry fowl.
