Madonna's and husband Guy Richie

Madonna stunned hotel staff in Cannes.

The '4 Minutes' singer - who is in the French town for the world famous Film Festival - issued a barrage of requests to the Carlton Hotel before her arrival.

Madonna insisted her £1,000-a-night suite was kept at a constant 30 degree temperature and demanded that it was filled with fresh flowers and scented candles.

Most bizarrely, she requested a hook to be attached to the ceiling.

Two treadmills have also been installed in the suite so the singer and her husband, director Guy Ritchie, can work out together.

Madonna is in Cannes showcasing her film, 'I Am Because We Are'.

The documentary focuses on the plight of children with AIDS in Malawi - a cause close to the 49-year-old singer's heart, because she adopted her youngest son David from the region in 2006.

This isn't the first time Madonna has made waves this month with her bizarre requests.

The pop superstar insisted a helicopter carried her the short distance from her London home to Radio 1's Big Weekend music festival in Kent, South East England.

She also demanded flowers in her dressing room and special Kabbalah water.
