Madonna’s just gotten loonier with age, and last night she paused her MDNA show to give a long-winded political speech about reelecting President Barack Obama. Thankfully, she was at least in Washington DC.
The rant began with Abraham Lincoln fighting (and getting killed) for freedom and moved on to Martin Luther King Jr doing the same, but she leaves the real kicker for the end. Near the two-minute mark the fading queen of pop says “Y’all better vote for fucking Obama, okay? For better or for worse, we have a black Muslim in the White House.” At which point I can picture every person in the audience palm slapping his or her forehead. Really, Madonna? I know you like controversy, but eesh.
Though she sounds serious, her body language is a bit bratty and childish, so maybe hopefully she was just mocking all of the people who actually do believe Obama is Muslim? Either way, she’s nuttier than a bag of trail mix.
