PARIS – Madonna is in hot water with a French political party which says it is filing a lawsuit against the ‘material girl’ for disgracing their party leader.
According to France’s far-right National Front political party, it plans to sue Madonna over a video at a concert in Paris showing their party leader, Marine Le Pen, with a swastika on her forehead.
“We cannot accept such an odious comparison,” National Front vice-president Florian Philippot said on Sunday, adding that the legal action against Madonna would be filed this week.The video, which served as a backdrop for Madonna’s performance of the song Nobody Knows Me, at the Stade de France in a Paris suburb on Saturday, flashed a picture of Le Pen’s forehead bearing a swastika, followed by an image resembling Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. There was an audible gasp from the audience.
“This is just another provocation in Madonna’s world tour so that people will talk about her,” Philippot charged, claiming that the stadium was “far from full” for Madonna’s gig and that the tour was a “fiasco”.
“Marine Le Pen will defend not only her own honor but her supporters and the millions of National Front voters,” he added.
Flamboyant Madonna will next appear in Nice, France, on August 21 as part of her MDNA tour, which covers about 30 countries in the Middle East, Europe and the Americas and will wrap up in Australia in 2013.
