Angelina Jolie and Madonna have a long-standing feud. Allegedly. Well, I believe they do. I think back in 2005-06, Madonna decided that she was going to beat Angelina at her own game, and tried to hijack various pieces of Jolie’s life and work (the foreign adoptions, the humanitarian work). The problem was that Madonna was just trying on a persona, and as such, she did it in a really half-assed way, and Angelina basically said that and then tried to take it back. Madonna later said that of course she wasn’t copying Angelina, etc. But there’s been iciness between the two women for the better part of six or seven years. And now that feud is boiling over… because Angelina’s daughters like to listen to old-school Madge.
A long-simmer feud between Angelina Jolie and Madonna has hit Jolie where it hurts – at home! Angelina’s daughters Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne can’t get enough of the Material Girl’s tunes, sources say, and it’s got Angelina singing the blues.
“It’s no secret that Angie has never been a fan of Madonna’s acting, but her music really makes her cringe,” a source tells The Enquirer. “Growing up, Angie was more of a punk rocker and into new wave. Madonna’s bubble-gum pop sound and voice never appealed to her. To this day, Angie won’t listen to Madonna, but now she has to grin and bear it as her daughters blare Madonna classics.”
“Angie hopes this Madonna thing is just a phase her girls are going through because she’s about to snap… listening to Madonna’s music is like nails on a chalkboard for Angie.”

The Enquirer claims that the girls basically only like The Immaculate Collection, not the new stuff, and Angelina feels like punching a gerbil of doom whenever she hears “Like a Virgin”. This kind of story isn’t new for The Enquirer – back in July, they claimed that Pax and Zahara both love listening to Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” – so much so that Angelina had to ban Rihanna’s music from the house. My question is: who brought The Immaculate Collection into the house? Or are the kids allowed to download whatever music they want? No, right? I don’t know anything about kids. My point: Brad Pitt is obviously in cohoots with Empress Zahara to coordinate a Sound of Music-style Jolie-Pitt-children showcase in which they cover Madonna songs and then escape the Nazis through the mountains. Or at least that’s how Z explained it to her dad. And Brad was like, “Sure, sweetheart. Whatever you want.”
