Apparently swastikas and boob exposure haven't been getting Madonna enough attention on her world tour: now she's just spouting totally incorrect statements that make her look ignorant, but will still get her in the headlines.
During a concert in Washington D.C. last Monday, Madge urged fans to vote for Barack Obama, "For better or for worse, all right. We have a black Muslim in the White House, OK? Now that is some s***." Say what?! In covering the scandal, Fox News even clarified that "President Obama is not a Muslim." You know you've done wrong when FOX EFFING NEWS shuts down your BS with factually correct statements.
Madonna also told fans that if Obama won a second term, she would strip on stage. Um, hasn't she been doing that, like, her entire tour? For once, Madge tried to distance herself from controversy by claiming her comments were "ironic." This sounds like Alanis Morissette irony to us, not actual irony. "Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is," said Madonna. "And what if he were...I don't care what religion Obama is – nor should anyone else in America."
If she doesn't get enough press from this, we have a feeling Madonna is going to do something truly crazy and career-ending by the end of this tour.
What do you think of Madonna's comments about Obama?
