Madonna Bonkers Over Coconut Water
"Madonna has become so nuts for coconut water that she recently invested about $1.5 million in one of the leading makers of the drink, which has taken Hollywood and The Big Apple by storm, The Post has learned.
Madonna is so enthusiastic about coconut water -- the clear juice from young, green coconuts, not the brown coconuts that have a milky liquid center -- that she drank fresh coconut juice daily on the overseas leg of the Sticky & Sweet tour. There is also talk that she might make a follow-up investment."
Madonna has always been all about style over substance, and it comes as no surprise that the Material Girl has never met a fad or a trend that she didn`t like.
Madonna discarded the staid and boring Catholicism of her youth for the hot and trendy religion of Kabbalah. Madge doesn`t dress like the 51-year-old woman that she is, instead she dons the trendy outfits of a school girl.
Regular bottled water is to passe for the pop diva, she has embraced coconut water as her drink of choice. I have never tasted coconut water, in fact I just found out about it when I read the New York Post article. But knowing that Madonna has invested in coconut water guarantees that I will never buy a bottle of the stuff.
