Rochester Hills’ finest threw a teensy little hissy fit at at a Fashion Week party at Space Ibiza New York, demanding that a spotlight beaming down on her be switched off — now. Ususally happy to be in the bright lights, Madonna, 56, asked that the spotlight in the disco’s VIP section get canned, sending management into a frantic search for the “off” switch. “Madonna didn’t want it on her,” an unidentified source told Page Six. “Managers couldn’t turn it off individually, so club owner Carlo Seneca stood on the banquette, unscrewed the bulb and presented it to Madonna as a gift from the opening.”

Not George Clooney?

Rebecca and Martin English from Surrey, England, tied the knot at the Chelsea Town Hall in London on Friday — and were briefly mistaken for George Clooney, 53, and his bride, Amal Alamuddin, 36. They got a huge round of applause from 200 spectators hoping to witness Hollywood history. Photographers and spectators had been gathering outside the hall for hours, despite a posted notice that magistrates within were “NOT conducting the wedding of Mr. Clooney,” according to “We didn’t have any idea about this,” Rebecca English said. “Now I know how it feels to be famous!” Clooney and Alamuddin are rumored to be marrying in Italy in a few weeks.

Big Sean unveils new music

Cher postpones Palace stop

Cher is still “Dressed to Kill,” but fans in Metro Detroit will have to wait a little longer than expected to see her. The 68-year-old diva postponed her planned Oct. 1 concert at The Palace of Auburn Hills, part of her “Dressed to Kill” tour, until Nov. 23, according to a tour announcement Friday. Tickets will be honored at the make-up show; those unable to attend can get a refund at the point of purchase. The Palace show is one of 10 concerts Cher has delayed due to an acute viral infection, according to a tour release. Cher is reportedly recovering at home in Los Angeles, and “Dressed” will resume Oct. 4 in Toronto. “Dressed to Kill” also made a stop at Joe Louis Arena in April of this year.
