Madonna booed in New Orleans for telling fans to vote Obama



Let's get this straight. Over the years Madonna has been criticized for pretending to be crucified during a concert in Rome. For posing nude in a BDSM themed book. For making out with Britney Spears during the MTV Music Awards. More recently, for superimposing a swastika over her face during a video montage. And in September, for calling the U.S. president a "black Muslim."

But what really sent fans at a concert in New Orleans over the edge this weekend was the Material Girl telling them "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." The UK's Guardian says the "request" was met "with a mixture of cheers and loud boos."

Is Louisiana a swing state of something?

Actually, odder to me was hearing Madonna talk in a relatively normal voice for a few minutes. No phony British accent. No cooing melody to her words. Maybe she's not so robotic afterall. But, Madge, I'm sure the politicians of both parties would be happier if you left the endorsements to more serious musicians.
