Madonna Blames "Thugs," Media for Negative Concert Reaction

by at . Comments

Madonna played a 45-minute concert in Paris on Thursday night that concluded with attendees showering the stage with debris and shouting insults at the Material Girl.

Was it due to the duration of the show? To Madonna's slamming of National Front party member Marine Le Pen as a Nazi? Or was it simply an overreaction by the media?

Guess which option Madonna has chosen...

In a statement on her official website, the iconic artist has responded to the controversy with:

"Playing the Olympia was a magical moment for me and it was real treat to do this special show for my fans and be so close to them. Unfortunately at the end of the show - after I left the stage - a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pretending to be angry fans.

"The press reports have focused on this and not the joyous aspect of the evening. But nothing can take away or ruin this very special evening for me and my fans. When I looked out in the audience, everyone I saw had a smile on their face. I look forward to having this wonderful experience again."

Fair enough. Let's just hope she keeps all guns at home when that day comes.

MADONNA is the same Madonna in the 80s, 90s, 2000s, she ruled the world, she is a hard worker woman, she works all the year, people who comment here negative about are wrong, they should work more and more instead of talking bad about her. People who say she is like this , she is like that! they are hypocrites in their lives, Ok, shes 50 and what the problem that she is fit,and she looks amazing , people think that when you have 40 , 50, 55 you are old, what a hell is this, poor of them of their parents, maybe they are thinking to take their parents to a rehab/nursing home in their 50s.

Looks like she's in denial about her waning popularity - like Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.

Maybe she's too old to go live for more than 45 minutes. Poor girl was probably exhausted after hauling her old body around and pretending to herself that she's young and hot.

260 Euros for a 45 minute "concert" has nothing to do with it.
