Madonna played the controversial video at her Paris concert anyway despite warning from National Front's leader whose image is shown inside with swastika in her forehead. The France's far-right party announced on Sunday, July 15 that they plan to sue the singer for the imagery.

The video has actually been shown since the beginning of her MDNA tour in May. Party leader Marine Le Pen, whose image was used, expressed her displeasure at that time and threatened to sue Madonna if she plays it in the French capital. Madonna appeared to accept the challenge and rolled the footage at the Stade de France on Saturday night.

National Front spokesman Alain Vizier said they would file a complaint in French court next week for "insults." Meanwhile, vice-president Florian Philippot said the party could not accept "such an odious comparison". He added, "This is just another provocation in Madonna's world tour so that people will talk about her. Marine Le Pen will defend not only her own honor but her supporters and the millions of National Front voters."

Madonna is scheduled to perform in Nice, France on August 21.
