“Trotting Out The Same Thing Is Boring” – Norman Cook Hits Out At Madonna



Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim has this week hit out at Queen of Pop Madonna for “always wanting more fame”.

The 51-year-old, who rose to fame with hits such as Praise You, said that he’d rather perform at certain gigs and festivals than release new music.

“You look at people like Madonna and it’s never enough,” he said.

“They always want more fame and more success and to do bigger gigs.

“Nowadays I’d rather go sideways than up. I don’t want to do things on a bigger scale. I want to do things that are interesting,” he continued.

“Trotting out the same thing over and over again is boring.

“And I have no ambition to be higher than a certain level. Cos everything that comes with it just becomes a ballache,” he added to The Observer’s The New Review magazine.
