Madonna’s name has been a mainstay in the news recently. We reported on the concert stunts she has been pulling during her global MDNA tour concerts, one of which was to put a swastika on an image of Marine Le Pen, the leader of the country’s far-right National Front. Needless to say, this resulted in a very angry response from Le Pen who filed charges against the singer.
Last night the Material Girl returned to Paris, after announcing a surprise intimate performance in the French capital. The show, which took place at the Olympia, was a delight to many of her biggest fans: 2,000 out of 27,000 tickets for the show were reserved for fan-club members. In addition, the concert was streamed online via YouTube, which we put up on our website as well.
Her fans anxiously waited for the concert with high hopes, some even camped out 30 hours in advance in the summer heat, according to The Daily Beast.
But once again, Madonna managed to cause anger in the city. This time, it wasn’t politicians who were unhappy with her performance, rather the very fans that supported her during her earlier ordeal.
According to Liz Raftery from TV Guide, “Madonna came out on stage at about 10:15 p.m. and the show finished at 11 [_] Upon realizing the concert was over and she hadn’t left the stage for just a costume change, fans reportedly began booing and some demanded refunds.”
Other insults, including profanities were aimed at the singer and Twitter lit up with comments by disappointed fans.
