Madonna - Madonna Sued By Far Right National Front Over Swastika Visuals?
Madonna, still trying to be controversial at the age when most are starting to think about winding down, might've actually succeeded in shocking a few people after the French far right political party The National Front revealed they were going to sue the 53 year-old over images portrayed in the visuals for her current live show.
Madonna was performing at a concert in Paris on Saturday when the visuals on stage briefly depicted the face of far right leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika superimposed on her face. It's been a recurring theme of Madge's visuals, with other famous faces involved in the work including Pope Benedict and former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak who was toppled from power during last year's Arab Spring.
However, as the pop star moves to France it's been Le Pen's image that has obviously attracted the most attention and the vice-president of The National Front, Florian Philippot told Reuters "A private plaintiff's case for insult will be presented next week." Continuing, he described the images as "unacceptable" and doesn't condone Madonna's apparent attempt to accuse Le Pen - who won 18 per cent of the French vote at the recent election - of fascism. "It is our duty to bring a complaint to defend our voters and our supporters," Philippot added.
