As noted at New York Daily News on Sunday, October 28, some Madonna fans did not seem to like the singer’s statement when she told her audience to vote for Obama for president this coming November 6 presidential elections. Although there are a lot of fans who cheered for her, some reportedly walked out.
“Jokingly aside, it is very important that you vote. Who’s registered to vote? I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.” Madonna said on the stage, and then drinks from her bottled water. Loud cheers were heard, but there were also some booes along the side, which the ‘Material Girl’ singer heard.
“Are they booing me?” Madonna asked to a fan near her. Then, she faced backwards to the crowd, bends over and slightly lifted her dress. “Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for…Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote…We are very lucky, we have a democratic government.” She added.
Apparently, this is not the first time that Madonna had a controversy on her MDNA concert tour. Back in July, a swastika was placed on an image of Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen‘s forehead, during her concert at the Stade De France in Paris, and was criticized by FN’s vice-president Florian Philippot.
Last month, Madonna also endorsed President Obama during her MDNA concert at Verizon Center in Washington D.C.. “For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man.” She was quoted as saying.
