Superstar Madonna made some big demands for her brief appearance at France's NRJ Music Awards on Saturday night (24JAN04).

The pop star arrived from England with her private jet, and went straight to the MAJESTIC HOTEL in Cannes to get changed.

She demanded nobody was in the hall of the hotel when she arrived, before asking for the PRESIDENTIAL SUITE with a independent studio for her hairdresser and make up artist and white flowers in every room of her suite.

ERIC BOONSTOPPEL, the director of the Majestic Hotel, confides, "Madonna didn't want anyone in the hall at her arrival, otherwise she would leave the hotel on the spot."

Then on the red carpet of the music bash, Madonna refused to pose for the photographers - before immediately flying out to Los Angeles as soon as she had presented an award at the ceremony.

Disappointed fan NATHALIE DEMONGEOT says, "I was so excited to see her. When I heard she was going to be there I did everything to get an invitation for the ceremony. But she only stayed few seconds on stage to thank her French fans for the awards and left.

"I was expecting her to sing, but she didn't. I don't know why NRJ did all that fuss to have her at the show, if she wasn't going to sing. I'm very disappointed."
