Madonna Flashes Swastika, Creates Controversy in Tel Aviv

by at . Comments

Never one to shy away from controversy, Madonna once again finds herself in the middle of one.

During a concert in Tel Aviv last week, the Material Girl flashed a Swastika over the face of National Front leader Marine Le Pen, the political leader who has been accused of racism amidst her extremely conservative views.

As you might expect, the stunt is not sitting well with Le Pen, who has threatened legal action against the icon and who told The Daily Mail:

"We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes ... If she does that in France, we’ll be waiting."

Oohhh, it's on! Suddenly, Madonna's show in France next month - where she will appear at the Stade de France in Paris and then over in Nice - has grown in importance, stature and buzz.

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
