When I talked to Graham Norton in December, his "scrappy mixed terrier thing" kept interrupting by attacking her loudest toy. Her name, he said, is Madge, which led me to ask if she's named after Madonna. "Well yes, but I didn't do it! I don't want to lose my booking over this," he said, referring to finally landing his dream guest on his British chat show, "The Graham Norton Show. " He needn't have worried. Madonna showed up Wednesday to tape the episode, which will air at a special time, 9:45 p.m., this Saturday on BBC America.

" At the time, Q had appeared in mostly action films, and rarely in a lead role. She was new to TV, and new to being the center of attention in a room full of executives, advertisers and oh-so-many young, gorgeous stars. "They threw me on stage and I didn't know what the hell to do or what to say in this room full of very serious people, you know," she said during a recent phone interview.
