Madonna is still the reigning queen of pop, so it’s not surprising that she’s picky about her thrones — especially when it comes to public toilets. Before her concert at the Palais Nakaia concert hall in Nice, France, on August 26, the singer had all of the commodes, showers and sinks removed, scrubbed down and then reinstalled. “Everyone thinks she did this because she hates the thought of dirty and germy things,” an insider tells In Touch. The self-disciplined star has even admitted to her controlling ways. “Guy [Ritchie, her husband] tells me to loosen up,” she has said. “My friends do, too, but I can’t. I’ve always been this way.” And it’s not the first time the Material Girl has been occupied with lavatory troubles, the insider notes: “During her tour last year, a man stole some of the toilets from the Madonna tour and sold them on eBay for nearly $8,000!’’ Madge kicked off her Sticky & Sweet tour on August 23 in Wales, where the latrines were presumably spotless.
