Madonna's Swastika Show Causes A Stir
Madonna’s having a bit of an emotional time at the moment - after breaking down during one of her sets, she’s now been booed mercilessly at a small club show in Paris last week.
Her fans were irate after a brief 45 minute set, although it didn’t help that she's also been displaying a photo of the French National Front leader with a swastika superimposed on her face…
Following the show, Madonna's PR team released the following statement:
Madonna's Paris club show was planned as her heartfelt thank you to France which she expressed at the start of her show. Despite a grueling concert tour, she desperately wanted to perform for her fans in an intimate setting at the historic Olympia as a means to honor her love for French artists, French cinema and a tribute to France's long history of welcoming and inspiring artists, authors, painters, poets and minorities from other countries over the years. The show was not billed as her full MDNA concert and tremendous effort was made to keep the ticket prices reasonable ($100 for 2000 floor seats) and keep them strictly for her fans. The show cost Madonna close to a million dollars to produce. She has done a handful of club dates in the past and they were never more than 45 minutes. And by the way, she put on a fabulous show which was streamed for millions of fans around the world.- Madonna's PR Team
Madonna’s not taking the criticism laying down either, she’s defended her show and the use of the swastika by saying its intended purpose was to highlight "the intolerance human beings have for one another."
