Kid Rock's: madonna 'ain't done nothin' for Detroit'!

If Madonna is upset about Kid Rock's criticism delivered Wednesday morning on a national TV network, she doesn't appear to be showing it.
Neither Madonna nor anyone in her camp had appeared by 4 p.m. Wednesday willing to respond to Kid Rock's claim on CNBC's "Squawk Box" show that "Madonna ain't done nothin' for Detroit."
Messages left with Liz Rosenberg, Madonna's publicist, and Silivio "Tony" Ciccone, her father, weren't immediately returned.
Silvio Ciccone owns Ciccone Vineyard and Winery in Sutton's Bay, Mich.
An woman who answered the phone at the business Wednesday afternoon gave a "no comment" about the matter and added that he likely wouldn't comment either.
Madonna, whose real name is Madonna Louise Ciccone, was born in Bay City, Mich. and grew up in the Metro Detroit suburbs of Pontiac and Avon Township (now Rochester Hills).
She's claimed Detroit roots in the past, but hasn't appeared active in much of anything pertaining to southeast Michigan for several years.
Madonna did, however, perform a concert last November at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit where she claimed the city is "making a comeback."
"This place made me who I am - a hard working girl," she told the crowd. "Detroit is making a comeback, I can feel it in my bones.
"We're making a comeback mother(bleepers), so everybody better watch out."
Madonna has also recently posted a few Detroit-related tweets:
Kid Rock certainly has made an effort to help Detroit prosper.
