Singing sinews forced to cough up £135,000

Madonna

Madonna has been fined a whopping £135,000 after a late start made her Wembley Stadium concert overrun.

Madonna took to the stage 40 minutes late on the Wembley date on the Sticky And Sweet Tour, resulting in a delayed finish that caused traffic problems in the area.

The singer was fined £50,000 for each 15 minutes that the concert overran. If only that could be applied to her career, &c &c &c.
