*Madonna’s own fans turned on her in New Orleans over the weekend when she told the crowd at her concert to vote for Barack Obama.
“I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama,” she said, before a chorus of boos rang out amid cheers.
She then walked it back a bit.
“Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for as long as you take responsibility for the future of your country … Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote,” she continued.
This is not the first time Madonna has drawn criticism for making a political statement during her MDNA tour: in May, she attracted the ire of French politician Marine Le Pen for superimposing a swastika over her face as part of a video montage, while in September she confused fans at a show in Washington DC by sarcastically calling Barack Obama a “black Muslim.”
