Isn’t it amazing how rebellious and controversial Madonna seems to become as she ages? On Monday, Madonna called Obama a black Muslim on stage, in what could easily be one of her weirdest endorsements yet. Plus, Madonna promised she’ll strip if Obama wins the re-election.
Monday night at the Verizon Center in downtown Washington, Madonna’s fans heard their diva endorse Barack Obama in a weird way. The 54-year-old pop diva shouted at her fans to vote for Obama, the “black Muslim in the White House!”. Madonna’s choice of words had the media scrutinizing her, but the diva explained she was being ironic when she referred to Obama as a black Muslim.
“Y’all better vote for f**king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House! Now that’s some amazing s**t” Madonna told her fans at Monday night’s concert. Madonna also stripped down to her bra to reveal a black “Obama” stencil on her back. The 54-year-old diva also promised she’s going to strip everything “when Obama is in the White House for a second term”.
“Now, it’s so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House…we have a black Muslim in the White House” Madonna said while sipping from a water bottle. This “means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man” she added.
Tuesday night, Madonna explained she was only being ironic when she said Obama was a black Muslim. Her speech says it all, but the tabloid media loves to stir some confusion and cause a fuss. Headlines early morning read about Madonna making a confusing speech about Barack Obama being Muslim.
“I was being ironic on stage. 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? Madonna reacted to media scrutiny. “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” she added.
