Who do you think you are… Madonna?

Oh wait….yeah, she IS.

According to the Daily Mail, Madonna has angered her neighbors by hogging prime parking space outside her $40 million Upper East Side townhouse – by having her people install fake ‘No parking’ signs to keep other motorists away.

The fake signage includes a ‘No parking’ sign posted on the singer’s security gate, and a ‘Tenant parking only’ sign mounted on a pole in a tree bed on the sidewalk. Both signs threaten that ‘unauthorized vehicles will be towed away.

The signs differ in design and language from official Department of Transportation notices.

The pop icon’s people also had the words ‘No parking’ imprinted along the edge of the sidewalk, and even painted the curb yellow.

The yellow paint job, curb imprint and the sign posted in the tree bed are all against city rules and subject to monetary fines, thanks to New York City Dept. of Transportation. Soooo… now Madonna has been issued a letter of defacement and has 30 days to respond if she wants to avoid a $250 fine.

Transportation Department officials reportedly told the singer she has to take the signs down

A neighbor said:
“We’ve all been wondering for a while now if these signs are real and everyone on her street has just accepted them. At first we thought it made sense as often you see middle age fans trying to catch a glimpse of her, so it looked like she had a permit to have them so she could come and go without being annoyed. We’re now troubled that they could be fake as this just seems so entitled.”

But the signs aren’t the only way Madonna annoys her neighbors.

“What has angered us the very most is that when she leaves one of her staff literally walks into the street and stops cars and pedestrians from passing. This way she can leave from inside the garage and not have to deal with the public.”

“It’s really quite obnoxious and we all joke that she is playing “B*tch I’m Madonna” as her chauffeured car drives her by all of us minions waiting on the street for her to pass.”

Well, I mean… she is Madonna.
