Madonna Booed In New Orleans After Telling Crowd To Vote Obama
By Mack Rawden 4 years ago
Over the past few months, Madonnaís MDNA tour has generated more than its share of headlines. From branding a high profile politician as a Nazi to showing fans her nipple, the fifty-four-year-old hasnít held back. Unfortunately for her, that willingness to pop off without a filter led to an embarrassing back peddle during last nightís gig in New Orleans.
According to The New York Daily News, the Material Girl was on stage when she told audience members she didnít care how they voted as long as it was for Obama. The pop star has made similar statements and publically supported the President during other stops on the tour, but yesterday evening, she did not get the response she expected. Many members of the crowd booed and more than a handful actually got up and walked out, prompting Madonna to tell everyone sheís actually just more interested in people getting out and voting.
Recent polls have suggested Romney might win Louisiana by as much as twenty percentage points, but even if the result was flipped, there are a lot of people out there who donít want to be told what to do. Madonna is neither a political strategist nor more informed than the rest of us who care too. She would be better served by telling people to care, as opposed to telling them who to care about.
Pop Blendís congratulations go out to everyone with their shit together enough to vote, regardless of whether they vote for Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Green party candidates or anyone else on the ballot.
