Yeah! Fat chance, buddy!
You burned those bridges a loooong time ago!
Madonna's brother, Christopher Ciccone, has decided today that despite his very public critiscims of her in the media - and penning a tell-all about her - he still wants to reunite - but is afraid that it won't happen until their grandmother, Elsie Fortin, passes away!
"The only contact I have had with my Madonna is via e-mail when I try to keep her updated about our family, but often she does not respond, and if she does it is through somebody else. It could take my grandmother's passing for us to meet again, but one way or another I know it will happen. I'm praying that my grandmother makes it to 100, but I know she is frail now…she is a remarkable person who raised my brothers and sisters and is very important to our family. Look, I no longer get invited to all the same parties, and there are certain agents in Hollywood that won't touch me, but I have no regrets and don't really care about that stuff anyway. After I wrote Life With My Sister Madonna, the famous late Hollywood agent Ed Limato told me 'I understand you now' while I also think it has given my family a better understanding of me too. I'm not totally black-listed, and there are still plenty of people who will work with me still though. I've just formed The Ciccone Factory and I'm mentoring a number of exciting new artists including Erika Anderson and Ashe Wednesday. I'm energized again and just like 'a gay Simon Cowell' I intend to mentor these performers and use what I learned working with my sister to help get their careers established. I also have an erotic photography book coming-out in the summer called Fucking Polaroids which I'm looking forward to promoting. Life has come full circle for me now and I certainly don't have any regrets about writing my book - it help me with my own identity and to truly understand the relationship I had with my sister Madonna too."
Ah-ha! It all makes sense!
He has projects he wants to endorse, so he's using his sister's fame to get media attention in order to plug them!
We're sure she's going to LOVE that, bb!
