Does papa preach? Not when his daughter is keeping her act clear for his sake.
Madonna has been shocking audiences around the world during her Confessions tour, repeatedly using the f-word, flipping her middle finger at the crowd, reaching inside her pants and suggesting that people perform a lewd act on President Bush.
At a recent show in Chicago, however, the naughty actions and speeces were practically absent. The reason? Madonna's father was in the audience.
"She gave the crowd the finger only one time and never once said the f-word," says a source who attended that show. "At one point, she actually asked the audience to applaud extra loud for her so that her dad would know she made something of herself. The crowd went wild."
There was an eerie silence, however, when the Material Girl made a similar request on behalf of new friend, Lindsay Lohan.
