Madonna Booed By Concertgoers After Touting Obama (VIDEO)
During a Saturday show in New Orleans, La., the Queen of Pop drew boos instead of cheers from the crowd after she touted President Barack Obama. “Are you all registered to vote?” she asked concertgoers, teasing that the election is “almost as important as my concert.”
“Joking aside, it’s very important that you do vote,” she continued. “I don’t care who you vote for as long as it’s Obama.”
As the crowd exploded in hooting and hollering, Madonna asked: “Are they booing me?” Then continuing her ever-controversial on-stage antics, Madge said “kiss it” as she flashed her behind.
“No, I’m just kidding,” she said, appeasing the hecklers. “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you take responsibility for the future of your country. As imperfect and as f***ed up as our country may seem, we are very lucky people because we have a democratic government. We have the freedom to choose who we want our leaders to be. And there are people all around this world who are fighting and dying for the right to have democracy. Do not take this great privilege for granted.”
And this isn’t the first time Madge has made headlines for referencing Obama on stage. During a concert in Washington, D.C., she told the crowd, “So, you all better vote for f***in’ Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right, we have a black Muslim in the White House!” She later brushed off criticism, saying the comment was “ironic.”
