Some of Madonna’s fans would prefer it if she just sang instead of lecturing them on who to vote for.
During her concert in New Orleans on Saturday the pop superstar urged fans to vote for President Obama in the upcoming election.
“Who’s registered to vote?” she asked the crowd. She then told them, “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.“
The crowd reacted immediately with some people booing and others heading for the exit according to the Associated Press.
“Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for…Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote,” she said.
The singer’s “MDNA Tour” has hit several bumps. During a Paris show she angered French concertgoers by superimposing a swastika on the forehead of right-wing National Front politician Marine Le Pen. Le Pen said she would bring a formal legal complaint against Madonna for “making public insults.”
“This is yet another provocation, intended to try to overcome [Madonna's] problems with her fans during a tour which is a complete flop,” said senior National Front official, Florian Philippot.
In Instanbul she flashed her breasts and pulled down her pants baring her butt in Rome.
Madonna also drew controversy earlier this month when she used prop guns onstage and pretended to shoot several of her dancers while performing “Gang Bang” in Denver. A giant screen simulated splattering blood and falling bodies.
Concert goers were offended because just several months earlier James Holmes went on a shooting rampage at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, killing 12 people and injuring 59 others.
Looks like Madonna’s stunts are wearing thin.
