Madonna Show Makes Political Statement

By on Wednesday, 23rd February 2011

Although Madonna has turned 50, she is just as controversial as ever.

The pop icon kicked off her “Sticky and Sweet” tour in the U.K. and has everyone talking, not only about her amazing physique, but about her politics.

As if her wardrobes and dance moves weren’t racy enough to grab her fans’ attention, she had images of presidential hopeful John McCain alongside Adolf Hitler and Robert Mugabe while on the other hand, comparing presidential hopeful Barack Obama to John Lennon and Mahatma Gandhi, reported Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen.

According to USATODAY, images of destruction and global warming flashed on a screen during a video interlude, which were followed by the images of McCain and Obama.

“Once the interlude was over, Madonna threw herself into a rave-inflected rendition of “Like a Prayer.” She finished off the concert with her thumping “Give it 2 Me” from her new album Hard Candy,” USATODAY, reported.

“She’s never been known for her subtlety,” said Early Show correspondent Maggie Rodriguez. “So, I can’t say I’m that surprised.”

“But I can speak to the in-shape part ?,” Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith chimed in. “Because the pictures of her look amazing. And we live in the same apartment building. I saw personal trainers coming in a lot this summer. In one of the rooms in her apartment, she was apparently rehearsing in there because some of the neighbors were complaining to me about the noise. So she’s in good shape.”

The queen of pop could have just endorsed Obama in an interview or by making a public statement, but that wouldn’t capture the true spirit of Madonna, who thrives on shock value.
