Madonna's tour towel trouble

Madonna's 'Sticky and Sweet' tour towels have been seized by Eastern European border control guards

Madonna's tour towels have been seized by Eastern European border control guards.

The '4 Minutes' singer - who is currently on her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour - travel with 300 designer towels for herself and her dancers to use when they come off stage, but Montenegro officials confiscated them because they were suspicious about why she needed so many.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The customs people had never come across that kind of volume of towels for personal use before, or the cost given for them. People in Montenegro just aren't used to spending that much on a towel."

The singer is set to perform in Budva city tomorrow (25.09.08).

This is not the first time Madonna's tour has encountered a problem.

Earlier this month, it was claimed her tour crew were threatening to quit.

Some of the 250 staff were said to feel they were being treated like "second class citizens" after being given cheap hotel accommodation while Madonna stayed in luxury hotels.

A source said: "People were absolutely furious with her and some of them want to walk out of the tour."


The multi-million selling American singer-songwriter, actress, director and entrepreneur performs pop in support of her album MDNA.
