Piers Morgan: Madonna's Super Bowl Performance Was "Gruesome"

Piers Morgan has yet another bone to pick with Madonna.

Following the 53-year-old Material Girl's Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show performance in Indianapolis, Indiana, Sunday, Morgan, 46, lambasted the singer on E!'s Chelsea Lately Monday.

"That Super Bowl performance -- it was like watching your mad drunken aunt at Christmas, wasn't it?" Morgan asked host Chelsea Handler, 36. "I keep reading all these celebrities tweeting like, 'Wasn't she awesome?' No she wasn't! She was gruesome!"

It's not the first time Morgan has publicly complained about the "Give Me All Your Luvin'" singer, who he banned her from CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight in January 2011.

"There was a bread roll throwing incident in London in the mid '90s; there was an incident at a hotel in the south of France at the Cannes Film Festival involving a photographer and a bodyguard," he told Access Hollywood in 2011. "And there's been an incident involving a pub owned by her recently departed husband, Guy Ritchie, where my brother was the manager."

On Monday's episode of Chelsea Lately, Morgan reiterated that he doesn't "like the woman, and she doesn't like me."

"But at least I've found that I have one common ground with Madonna: neither of us have sung live at the Super Bowl," the British journalist joked. "She was lip syncing the whole damn thing. I was singing along with her and trust me, she wasn't singing."
