Madonna put on a last-minute concert in Paris last night with one goal in mind: peace and tolerance.

By the time it was over, just 45 minutes after the Material Girl took the stage, debris was flying and fans were screaming for a refund.

Madonna planned the show in response to her tussle with that nation’s National Front party, which started when the singer flashed the Nazi symbol over politician Marine Le Pen’s face, telling attendees:

“I know that I made a certain Marine Le Pen very angry with me. And it’s not my intention to make enemies… it’s my intention to promote tolerance. And when we can start saying that we have to get rid of this person or we have to get rid of that person, because then we’ll have a better place, it starts to sound like something else; it starts to sound like something scary.”

The sentiment may have been admirable, but it was followed by just a handful of songs, no encore performance and 2,700 concert goers irate at the legendary artist.

This is merely the latest in a string of bad PR moves by Madonna: she pointed a gun to her head during a show in London and mooned the crowd in Berlin.

Someone may need a break from the spotlight for awhile.
