Madonna booed on stage

2012-10-28 12:40

New Orleans - Madonna drew boos and triggered a walkout by several concertgoers after she touted President Barack Obama on her "MDNA Tour" in New Orleans.

The Material Girl asked during Saturday night's performance: "Who's registered to vote?" She added: "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." Drawing boos in touting Obama over Republican Mitt Romney, Madonna followed: "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."

Madonna is often outspoken. Some Colorado fans, mindful of a mass shooting there, complained she used a fake gun to shoot a masked gunman in a recent concert act in Denver. A Madonna concert in Paris in July drew ire when a video showed a swastika on a politician's forehead.

    She should've been booed off.

    Pathetic slag!!

    Why can't you just grow old gracefully ??? Is there no depth to which you will not sink to stay in the limelight ???

      art5SA - 2012-10-29 05:09

      As long as the $$$'s are rolling in... this SLAG will have her say... Even if she is DEMENTED!

    People in the entertainment industry often support the politial party they see as the more radical, for obvious reasons.

      jason.vanderspuy.5 - 2012-10-29 12:09

      Radical? Try Liberal Bush and his war monger Republican buddies are the real radicals

      boltonbarry - 2012-10-29 15:18

      As suppose to Obama who is also ruining his country by in action ?

      Billy - 2012-10-29 16:41

      you people seem to forget. ANYONE that took office after bush was being setup for some stupid ridicule. if you actually knew what romney stood for, you would be applauding madonna

      Billy - 2012-10-29 19:48

      is that "willy" a typo? or are you trying to have a go at me with a surname like "balle"..? lol i never said he blamed his predecessor, im stating a fact, he had to come in and act like "everything is under control", and clean up the mess bush made. after such "high in political activity" from bush(the wrong activity) it obvious obamas actions will seem pale in comparison. its like people threw an open box of matches at him and blame him for not catching everything. mitt romney is a tool, bush even backs him. even tho its not our country, what those cowboys do, effects the world we live in. he doesnt know what hes talking about half the time. what he preaches against(apparently), he was doing for a living for decades.

    What is wrong with her endorsing a candidate of her choice as well as encouring people to vote? Is this not what is called freedom of speech?

      tasneem.sattar.5 - 2012-10-28 18:22

      it is, as was the booing.

      art5SA - 2012-10-29 10:15

      Celeb's should keep their POLITICAL VIEWS to themselves.... Unless they enter POLITICS.... Till then, Fut the SHUCK UP!!!

      stephen.scott.376043 - 2012-10-29 11:14

      Your right Dali, she can tout whoever she wants.

  • dali.mpofu.9 - 2012-10-28 14:41

    Be tolerant at all times, what is "pathetic slag" enlight us as I don't see any?

  • johann.enslin.9 - 2012-10-28 15:51

    Well Dali, i suppose people are there to relax and get away from politics, they pay for it so I suppose they can express their opinion. I couldn't give a hoot either way.

      colingkearns - 2012-10-28 17:21

      Johann, Dali does'nt understand that concept, if local musicians play in SA especially african style music, the chance of Mandela being wheeled or Zuma dancing with the musicians is pretty regular standard stuff. It seems that protest and activism will be with us for many years to come, some people don't have another life.

      Hey, Hey Joe. Do a bit of research before you open your mouth. I'm South African and it certainly doesn't happen the way you say. In fact quite the opposite, Zuma is too busy trying to stay in power to worry about dancing with musicians. And as for Mandela, please don't bring him into this silly discussion. America needs to vote for Obama.....there I said it!

  • louis.langenhoven - 2012-10-28 17:38

    i won't dare boo her with that in her hand!

  • vernon.samuel.7 - 2012-10-28 17:39

    The oh so sad sight of a has-been trying to grab headlines at any cost. DJ Tony Blewitt was once criticised for not airing his political views on the radio. He said that the problem was that he had the platform - but many listeners who may disagree with him may not have that platform to air the opposing view. I will always respect him for that stance. I wish that other celebs would follow his lead.

      john.baptista.505 - 2012-10-29 07:54

      Yes - Great point. Unlike Redi on 702/cape talk who uses her talk show host position as a radio preacher. I remember her saying not so long ago that the only one laughing about the textbook scandal is Verwoerd. He was apparently laughing in his grave at the incompetence. That opinion for one is so delusional, yet somehow she gets to stay on. She is forever ranting on about stuff. I think Tony should take over her slot - then the morning drive to clients would become bearable again. Jenny CW ruined the Afternoon a long time ago - Maybe Tony could do an extended slot.

      henry.kruger.520 - 2012-10-29 13:15

      JCW show is seariously boring. I switch off between 13:00 and 16:00 on 702. Goes on about zilch all the time and blows own trumpet. Dint like the fact that she is always scouting for invites and name drops at the drop of a hat. Pathetic I say.

  • hans.meevis - 2012-10-28 18:56

    An insult to thinking women.

  • tasneem.sattar.5 - 2012-10-28 19:13

    This gogo should pack it in now...quit while you're ahead.

  • pierre.nortje.581 - 2012-10-28 19:28

    She is still cool after half a century - let her support Obama - its her choice and he is actually a good guy - the down side is that ugly looking dildo in her hand - look how in the picture she is loving that that ...

      boltonbarry - 2012-10-29 15:22

      And you know him personally that you can tell us that he is a good guy ? Cant be that good if he allows one of his ambassadors to get killed while watching it happen from his situation room while having Marines less than an hour away as well as ac 130 Specters in the air that could have saved those poor people in the Embassy

  • dali.mpofu.9 - 2012-10-28 21:36

    I see they have also exercised their freedom of expression when they were booing her.

  • Bdamons - 2012-10-29 08:09

    I must admit...I enjoyed and still enjoy her music of ONLY way back when, not the crap she sings today. But i lost respect for her a long time ago.

  • liz.ceruti - 2012-10-29 09:06

    Jealousy makes you nasty, If you`ve got it you`ve got it, even if you had it !

      boltonbarry - 2012-10-29 15:23

      This is without a doubt the stoopitist thing ive seen on here

  • dor.narf - 2012-10-29 09:18

    Mitt is a Moron....poor u.s if he wins ...he will prob reduce tax for himself and rich buddies...caster.balls maybe one of them..lol

      boltonbarry - 2012-10-29 15:24

      Her age has got nothing to do with the drivel she spews forth from her mouth

  • rosalind.may - 2012-10-29 09:55

    THAT IS JUST Madonna being herself as usual!Always has been very outspoken!Does not care what others think!

  • mabeeden - 2012-10-29 11:52

    Has been.

  • michael.awood.313 - 2012-10-29 12:22

    being booed off stage is a sure sign she needs to retire, I suggest she quits while she's still able to get tickets sold it would save her the embarrassment of a having another tour with no ticket sales she's had a 'hey' day move over for new exciting fresh acts take a hint already 'Madge'

  • rohin.jadin - 2012-10-29 12:45

    Madonna was just named the best selling female singles artist in Britain, so she's anything but a has been. She's just old. If she was to come here, she'd sell out in 10 minutes - i have no doubt. When U2 were here, they made political comments, and some people boo'd. Just because someone is a musician, it doesn't mean you don't get to express your opinion, and you the "fan" can choose to agree or not. If you love a musician for their musical talents - then do that, and ignore whatever else you don't agree with.

  • piet.hannibol - 2012-10-29 13:05

    You must be pretty good to be booed ONstage :-)

  • thethird.wors - 2012-10-29 13:22

    what's the difference? 90 year old (or whatever) Clint Eastwood did pretty much the same thing at the Republican convention... although he was talking to a chair. . . and blamed Obama for the 2 wars his republican predecessor started. The problem with Republicans, it seems, is a lack of long term memory.

  • louis.kriel - 2012-10-29 14:11

    The whore of Babylon!

  • di.heath.5 - 2012-10-29 14:25

    There is a huge storm heading for NY - people could get killed and familes lose their loved ones. I cannot believe you all have time to waste talking about such useless rubbish!

      jaded.oldfart - 2012-10-29 18:55

      @casters.balle: i've just read through all these comments from a pretty neutral basis - i really don't care either way. however, i have to say that you come across as the most arrogant, biased, opinionated, ignorant, intolerant and crass piece of karp ever. you're somewhere on the right of the nazis. shame, your life must be so bitter and miserable...

  • hein.huyser - 2012-10-30 07:02

    Sounds like the same morons that get to occupy stage in SA. Freedom for all, as long as you are blac. Non-racism but AA and BEE is a must etc.

  • ronnie.duplessis.7 - 2012-10-30 12:37
