Madonna booed in New Orleans over Obama support
Pop superstar Madonna drew boos and triggered a walkout from several concertgoers after showing her support to U.S President Barack Obama on her “MDNA Tour” in New Orleans.
According to reports, 54-year-old Madonna asked the crowd during her Saturday night performance: “Who’s registered to vote?” The pop star added, “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.”
Such statement, touting Obama over GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney clearly drew a lot of boos from the audience. But Madonna still went on, saying: “Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for … Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote.”
Madonna is often outspoken. Some Colorado fans, mindful of a mass shooting there, complained the “Vogue” singer used a fake gun to shoot a masked gunman in a recent concert act in Denver. A Madonna concert in Paris in July drew criticism and controversy as well when a video showed a swastika on the forehead of French politician Marine Le Pen.
