Madonna told jurors she was an “unemployed mom” during jury duty

MadonnaMadonna joked with fellow jurors that she was an "unemployed mom" when she turned up for jury duty in Los Angeles.

The Material Girl star was called for service on Monday. She turned up wearing a tracksuit at the Beverly Hills Courthouse in California hiding behind dark glasses - and complained that she was exhausted before winning over other people who had been called to do their duty.

A source said: "She was laughing with jurors and said she hated the movie 'Enchanted.'

" When the court started calling out jurors' names, Madonna got up to stand in the unemployed line and joked, 'I'm gonna tell them I'm an unemployed mom.' "

She also complained that she was sleep deprived - after hosting a post-Oscar party in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

The source told a US newspaper: "She complained that she got only three hours of sleep because of her Oscar party, and then asked another juror if she could lie down on the bench."

IN the end, Madonna wasn't called to perform jury duty,

The news comes as it emerged Madge's new album will be called 'Hard Candy'.

The record - her last for lable Warner Bros - includes a track called "Candy Store." Madonna chose to stick with the sweet theme because "she loves candy," says spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg.

She told US magazine Entertainment Weekly: "It's about the juxtaposition of tough and sweetness, or as Madonna so eloquently expressed 'I'm gonna kick your ass, but it's going to make you feel good.'"

The album, which features Justin Timberlake on multiple tracks and production by Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, and Nate "Danja" Hills, will be released in the US on April 29. The first single, "Four Minutes," will be out at the end of March.

Madonna, 49, will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame next month, by Timberlake. Each inductee is asked to invite a fellow celebrity or a family member to the New York gala to pay tribute to the artist's work - and Madonna felt her most recent collaborator, Timberlake, would be the perfect choice, according to magazine In Touch Weekly.

The ceremony takes place at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on March 10.
