Papa Don’t Serve: Madonna Uses Doctor’s Note to Get Out of Jury Duty
By Kevin Rutherford
Stars — they hate jury duty and will do anything to get out of it, just like us!
According to the New York Daily News, that’s exactly what Madonna did this week after being summoned for jury duty in New York. Instead of showing up for the scheduled service yesterday (May 27) at Manhattan Supreme Court, the singer conjured a doctor’s note making her exempt from the trial.
A source claimed the pop star would be able to serve jury duty sometime in the future.
Norman Goodman, a county clerk, confirmed the validity of the note and added that Madonna would indeed be booked by his office for jury duty sometime down the line.
The Daily News noted that the singer has had to participate in jury duty before, though that was while she resided in California. Currently, the singer lives on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
Perhaps she needed some more time to work on new music? Earlier this month, Madonna joined Diplo in the recording studio, adding in a photo caption that the producer “got me working all hours of the night in the studio.” Months prior, she posted a photo of her with Avicii, fueling rumors of a collaboration between the duo.
Any new Madonna material would be off her first album since 2012’s MDNA.
