Madonna has gone great length to support Barack Obama but she was not met with favorable response on Saturday, October 27. The singer slipped in some advice for her audience at her New Orleans concert which is part of her MDNA Tour.

"Who's registered to vote?" she asked the crowd. "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." Some of the audience booed at her and reportedly walked out of her concert. Madonna then added, "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ...do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."

This is not the first time Madonna mentioned the current U.S. President at her concert. Last month in Washington D.C., she took time to address the past leaders such as Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., saying "They killed him, as they do. ...It is so incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House. Those fine human beings did not die for nothing!"

Madonna was criticized for calling Obama a black Muslim in the White House after the concert but she said later, "I was being ironic on stage." She added, Yes I know Obama is not a Muslim - though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is - nor should anyone else in America."

Now I am a big Madona fan. If Clint can talk to an empty chair, you get to talk to GOP supporters with empty heads.

Give it a reast. The 3-4 folks who were upset went home- proably to sleep with their brother or sister- I mean it is New Orleans and they are in the South and they do belive in tradition.

So a woman who spent 6 years in Eanland trying to convince the world she wasn't an American (remember the fake accent and all) Is now trying to tell U.S citizens how to vote. Three cheers for the lip-sync genre !

I like how repugnants always bring up Lincoln. Hey, Lincoln would have nothing to do with the republican party today. He was for the republic; republicans today are for the rich. Big difference, tea partiers!

Isn't her 15 minutes of fame over? I didn't like her when she lied about being "Like A Virgin" and I still don't like her. Madonna who? I applaud the people who walked out of her concert, the whole crowd should have, Obama MUST GO!

Madonna just shut up. That's the best thing you could do for all of us.

I couldn`t think of a better reason to vote for Romney. Madonna supports Obama, the Hollywood elite posers support Obama. People with little or no knowledge of the constitution support Obama. Looks like I`ll be sticking with Romney-Ryan-and proudly...

Republicans used to be Christians but they converted to Mormonism.

Madonna just wants desperately to look cool. Hence her support for President Joe Cool. But he isn't cool in Louisiana. No one more surprised than Madonna.

What does Madonna care anyway? Does she not live in Europe most of the time?

MADONA MENTIONED A LINCOLN AND ML KING - BOTH WERE REPUBLICANS - - KKK WAS FOUNDED BY DEMOCRATAS IN THE SOUTH. *OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED IN JUDAISM-CHRISTIANISM PRINCIPLES - A BIBLE BASE FOUNDATION. BECAUSE OF THE CONSERVATIVE WAY OF LIVING, FAMILY VALUE PRINCIPLES AND THE PURSUE OF HAPPINESS DURING ALL THESES YEARS - HOLLYWOOD AND ROCK STARS ARE VERY RICH AND FAMOUS - NOT BECAUSE OF THE LIBERAL WAY OF THINKING.

If you go to a Madonna concert and are offended by her views, you were never a Madonna fan to start with. So why the hell did you go in the first place? I agree - Republicans at a Madonna concert? Hypocrites.

When I go to a concert I am trying to escape the every day, not be drawn further into it. I can be drawn into politics all by myself without having spent a fortune on a concert ticket for the privilege. In the end I feel it was likely that people weren't booing Obama, but rather booing because Madge decided to insert her opinion once again instead of doing what it is her fans paid her to do. She just doesn't get it, or doesn't care to get it.

ace, you should change your name to ass, seems a better fit. I dunno, try to read some different things, numpty. Anyone who buys a ticket to a concert by that talentless cow that is madge, lineup because I need to smack you 1 by 1. Actually, YOU are what's wrong with this country, ace is just a misguided twit, but you both promote crap.

People pay good money to watch their favorite performers sing, dance, etc. If I want to hear ANYTHING about politics i'd choose to attend a rally. Performers (celebrities) need to remember what WE as fans/consumers of their trademarked image pay for. (Anyone can perform; its if you're any good at it and if you have fans to pay for it). Its offensive to me when stars basically take their fans for granted and think they can shove their opinions down their throat. ALOT of stars lately need to get over themselves. Its not polite to ask a stranger about politics, religion, sexual preferance... I'm proud of the people who walked out for their values- more consumers should then maybe these stars would stick to their purpose we pay for.

Ace don't forget to mention Christians hate Christians and Muslims hate Muslims, other wise we wouldn't have wars.

Ace, you're missing a very important word (a noun) in your post. Extremists. Remember the KKK? Oh, so that means all white folks in the South were racist killers? How about the radical ultra conservative right-wing? They speak for all conservatives? Or the liberal left for all democrats? SHUT UP ALREADY!

Christians kill people, they oppress people, they hate and torture and slaughter all in the name of their religion, you can check it out on the internet. By your logic Ace that makes all Christians bad too right? Or maybe, just maybe some people do bad things and religion is just the thing they use to justify doing them? That's why it doesn't matter and you're an idiot.

Yeah i don't think it was a good idea to do what she did. Voting is a choice and you can't force people to vote for the favoured party.
posted by Bostmm55 on Oct 28, 2012
Yeah, shut up and sing I didn't pay $75 to hear her views on the political process. If she wants to do that she can pay me to listen! To think I should vote for Obama or anybody else becasue you say so is a tad bit arrogant. I pray that people who are swayed by attempts like this don't vote.

Why are Rethuglicans even at a Madonna concert? Remember when they used to protest her music as "satanic?" And shouldn't these same Rethuglicans be at church, praying for God to bless more women by having them raped?

Ace, you're an idiot. Christians kill people too, they hate and they kill and they oppress all in the name of their religion. You can look it up on the internet. By your logic that makes all Christians bad too right?

OMG Ace... You are incredibly misinformed. Its this type of intolerance and hate which is slowing down this country's progress. 50 years ago, people like you were saying African Americans needed to have separate facilities, go to separate schools and treated them like crap. Now its the muslims and gays... When will you accept people's beautiful diversity? Not everyone is a white christian male...thank god

just because she is a talented artist doesn't give her more authority in what she says. She certainly isn't an intellectual. I hate when celebrity use their power to impose their views on people.

Because Muslims are Christian haters, they hate others as well, but this country was founded by mostly Christian men, and that's why the country was so great. Muslims kill people who hinder their religion. Check it out on the internet, they blow up Christian churches every Sunday in other countries. Also slaughter men women and children in the most horrific ways possible. They just know they can't get away with it as easy here. That's why it matters if he is.

**King’s son and namesake Martin Luther King III said: "It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican.** I don't know about that. Until FDR came into power, black Americans voted overwhelmingly Republican. And why? Because the Republican Party was formed specifically to outlaw slavery. The Ku Klux Klan, in fact, was a branch of the Democratic Party. Since those days, the Democrats have regrouped and found a new way to keep blacks working for them...by convincing them that they need entitlements and are disadvantaged. To this day, black Americans are still slaving away on the Democrat plantation, unable to break the chains of dependency, unable to make true choices politically. Sad...

Glad to see there intelligent people in the audience. Who really cares what this ancient left-wing lunatic believes anyway? She needs to stick to showing her floppy old butt to her adoring fans and stay out of big people conversations.

He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican. It is even more outrageous to suggest he would support the Republican Party of today, which has spent so much time and effort trying to suppress African American votes in Florida and many other states."

The whole point she was making that it doesn't matter the persons party or religion. She was expressing her view on who great people were that made a difference for human rights. Everyone one who simply votes for a person because of their party is not really looking at the person, but voting purely on a label. That is just disgusting. Our lives are not black and white. There are great republicans and great democrats and the truly great people put parties aside and do what is right for the people, not their party or people who bankroll them.
