We don't care how cool you are, Madonna. Turn your music down.

Oh won't you be my neighbor. Or not. Even Mister Rogers would have to hang up his sweater somewhere else if what Madonna's neighbor says about the pop star is true. 

The Material Girl has converted her Central Park West apartment into an improvised dance studio and has been working so diligently on her routines that it's driving her neighbor insane. The incessant stomping around should get her evicted, neighbor Karen George charged in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday. 

"Madonna and one or more of her invited guests repeatedly dance and train … to unreasonably high-decibel, amplified music, causing noise and vibration to pour through the walls, ceilings and radiators," George, who lives just above Madonna's seventh-floor apartment, says in the lawsuit, according to The New York Post.

The beat has been going on – and George wants it to stop.

"Ms. George has been forced to endure blaring music, stomping and shaking walls for approximately one and a half to three hours each day," the lawsuit, filed against the building board, charges. 

The board claims they've already told Madonna she could be evicted if she doesn't tone down her dance sessions, reports the Post. The paper wasn't able to get a comment from Madonna's spokespeople.
