Madonna has done it again!
The queen of controversy was in Paris Saturday, a stop on her world tour, and offended the National Front party who is threatening to sue the singer. Why would a political party care about Madonna or her concert? Easy. During her song “Nobody Knows Me” a photo montage of both current and past world leaders is projected on the screen. It just so happens that Marine Le Pen comes right before Hitler on the video, which starts the transition of leaders with a swastika superimposed on Le Pen’s forehead.
Obviously, the leaders of the National Front party are not happy about this. At all.
Read on to see both sides of the story.
“The images that were projected draw a terrible link between the party and an ideology that we reject,” the party’s Vice President Florian Philippot said Monday.
Philippot went on to say, “Just because she is rich and well-known does not mean we should accept such atrocities. It’s an insult against Marine Le Pen and an insult to all the National Front party members.”
Stick it to her, National Front party!
Madonna’s camp doesn’t really have a solid defense at this point. The singer’s publicist, Barbara Charone, said the show “has been the same since it started in Tel Aviv,” where the world tour began in May.
Even if it has been the same, that doesn’t mean it’s not offensive. The National Front party even warned Madonna against using the images in her video before she arrived in France and claim that she further altered it before her concert at the Stade de France national stadium.
We will just have to wait and see how this one turns out. As for the rest of her trip in “The City of Love” went smooth enough. Madge was seen taking in the sights on a boat with boyfriend Brahim Zaibat, Lourdes Leon, Mercy James, Rocco Ritchie and David Banda.
