Madonna’s Fans Turn on Her, Call Her a Slut

Madonna’s superfans all turned on her after her performance at the Paris concert hall l’Olympia. The concert, which was just added to her tour last week, sold out in a few hours and tickets were only available to members of her official fan club. People paid $100 to $350 to see the show at the 2,700 seat venue and waited outside for hours if not days. So you can see how some would be a bit disappointed when Madonna took the stage at 10:15 p.m. and left 45 minutes later at 11 p.m. They were so disappointed in fact that when she finished, fans stayed in their seats booing and yelling insults like “salope,” French for “slut.”

After the show, many fans gathered in the streets in front of the theater and yelled “remboursez! remboursez!” (“give us our money back!”).

Several fans expressed their discontentment on Twitter late into the night. One fan wrote in French “280€ for a seat + 10 minutes of a speech + 40 minutes of a show + 2 days of camping in front of the #Olympa = #Madonna #MDNA #Paris #thatsucks” and another wrote, also in French, “#Madonna 45min/250€ vs @springsteen 3h40/65€ … what’s the better deal, there’s nothing left to say! #MDNAOlympia.” Another wrote: “How much does it cost to see Madonna at l’Olympia? It’s 6.3 euros per minute!”

That 10 minute speech they’re referring too? It was Madonna responding with righteous indignation at French right-wing politician Marine Le Pen who’s pressing charges after she featured a video that showed a photo of Le Pen’s face with a swastika over it.

“I know that I made a certain Marine Le Pen very angry with me. And it’s not my intention to make enemies,” Madonna told the crowd before adding: “It’s my intention to promote tolerance. And when we 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. So the next time you want to point the finger at somebody and blame them for a problem in your life, take that finger and point it back at you.”

To recap: To promote tolerance, Madonna found a picture of a guy she didn’t agree with and put a swastika over his head. Makes sense.
