Madonna Stamps Swastika On French Leader, Lawsuit Looms!

madonna marine le pen swastika scandal

Oh here we go!

It may have only shown up briefly, but Marine Le Pen is NOT happy about Madonna labeling her a Nazi during the MDNA tour.

As all eyes were glued to a video screen in Tel Aviv, the face of Marine appeared with a swastika over her forehead. Now, if you're unaware of Marine… let us tell you why she's a little upset…

Being the daughter of convicted racist/anti-Semite/Holocaust-denying Jean-Marie Le Pen, she took control of the National Front and vowed to reform the far-right political party from it's notorious reputation.

HOWEVER, she still wants to limit Muslim immigration and has been said to support the weakening of Islamic culture in France. Hmm…

Regardless, she maintains she is nowhere near being a Nazi and throws her own shade right back at Madge:

"We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes. If she does that in France, we'll be waiting [with legal action]."

Ha!

A bit out of touch, no?

Madonna is a living legend whose name will never need extreme publicity as it speaks for itself!! And unlike political leaders, no amount of scandal or lawsuits could destroy this Queen!

    Madonna's politics and beliefs are her own … and no matter how famous she is, she does not have the right to publicly slander someone just because that someone's politics and beliefs are different. It's called BULLYING, Perez, and the only reason you're refusing to protest it is because you're paid to say nice things about Madonna. You have zero integrity, and should be ashamed of yourself for your double standard. Le Pen is not out of touch or out of line for taking a stand. Madonna is out of line. But people like you are her enablers, and she should be held accountable, just as anyone else would be held accountable. Slander and defamation of character is not acceptable even when famous people do it, you jerk.

    Even though it is Madonna, it is still bullying, without any real proof or whatever that puts Marine in the far right corner. Living in France I do not support her, but I don't call her a Nazi either. And I would bet my ass that you don't have a clue about Marine and her politics AT ALL!

    Perez - she is the queen of has-beens. Nobody cares about her politics and quite honestly, you worship these celebrities. Last week it was "the whole world adores Angelina Jolie" and now it's Madonna. Get real. Angelina does what she does purely for the sake of image and nothing more. Madonna should retire. Just looking at her arms….. Her political views are whatever will garner her the most attention. Honestly? Nobody cares about her anymore.
    They should sue her and not even wait for her to do it in France. It's out and out slander.

    I hope when she drags her tired old ass to France they nab her at Orly airport, and haul her and her sagging tits off to jail
    She has no right to ever accuse anyone of being a Nazi, by association
    She knew in Israel that if she pulled the swastika stunt, it would take attention away from her lip sync performance, and get her some more coverage
    PS
    Has she ever done anything original ???

    I'm french and i'm shocked by what you are writting! that s a shame! did u know how many millions people vote for her last french president election ? about 6 million ! and a lot of young! so respect these millions of french people please and stop to juste read what you see on internet because she is not racist first and she don't want to stop immigration only for muslim but in general and not because she is racist but because we have not capacity to welcome them anymore because of cost. !

    Never needing extreme publicity? Why is she doing this ridiculous tour then? It had disaster written all over it from the get go.

    sighhhhhh your hypocrisy is getting to the point of down right sickening. Just because you love Madonna you will defend her even if she is standing over someone and stabbing them to death, i swear. You constantly are preaching and bitching about every little thing that most of the time is nothing when someone who you don't like does something like this, but when it's someone you like it's all ok. Do you EVER take two seconds and wonder why nobody freaking likes you????? it's because of your biased bullshit intolerant bullshit!



  8. 8

    "Madonna is a living legend" .. Okay maybe not THAT much. Anyway you can disagree with M. Le Pen but you need ( you have ) to respect her, even when you're a "legend". Madonna has no right to show people what's right and what's wrong, these are her own opinions. Even though she's a big star it doesn't give her the right to do whatever she wants. But I guess that with you, respect only goes for people you like and support.



  9. 9

    You are way out of line on this Perez, just like she is. She is allowed to have her personal political beliefs, but part of being a celebrity is using your position responsibly and respectfully. I'm really disappointed in both of yall.



  10. 10

    If this is the kind of crap she has to resort to in order to stay relevant, then maybe it is time to retire.



  11. 11

    Re: Gracie 2004 – $250 million in advanced sales and projected to break her own record as the biggest solo tour by a female ever. What exactly is your warped definition of disaster? Internet stupidity abounds! Thanks for contributing to it.

    Madonna thrives on slandering people, voicing ill-informed political opinions, and begging for attention like the desperate dog that she is! I'm really starting to hate this hypocritical attention seeker.

    I now live in France, and while I don't agree with all of Marie Le Pen's policies, some are viewed here as necessities as many Muslim immigrants (not all, but many) come to France illegally and bear major, and sometimes violent hostility toward this country. Madonna's too f—ing stupid and lazy to do her research and wanted to draw attention to herself. This wasn't about social justice or equality, it's about bringing the spotlight back to her out-dated, old, saggy, shameless cougar self!

    I can only imagine what Perez would say if it were a lesser musician. Please Perez, stop being such a hypocrite. I have been coming to your site for years and it's getting harder and harder to defend you against critics. What Madonna did was atrocious and immature. And this is coming from a twenty-three year old.



  18. 18

    Is it really any different than how americas treat their immagrants? No, and we dont call random ppl Nazis so i dont think its fair for her to call Le Pen one. She should try taking a debate class bc there are better ways to to state your point then slander.

    Madonna is a "living legend" BECAUSE she has done "shocking" things her entire career. That's how she stays relevant. God knows, she couldn't stay famous for her great singing, acting or song writing abilities. I love how Perez has yet to post anything about how William Orbit has come out and said how SHITTY MDNA is. LMFAO The producer of the album even admits it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Gigi says – reply to this

    Just because someone sells a lot of concert tickets does NOT mean that any of their new music is any good. There are a lot of STUPID people in this world. Madonna's last good album was Music, everything since then has SUCKED.

    Re: Ben – France has the right to remain French.



  25. 25

    How is this bullying? The world is ridiculous! Apparently EVERYTHING is bullying now. The popular word of this generation. Madonna does what she wants because it's her show, about her music, lyrics, poetry, beliefs, etc. People are paying to see her, it's not a free show for the world to see, it's for her fans.



  26. 26

    LePen is not anti-semitic! She has questioned immigration policies in France, as have many leaders in Europe. Madonna is ignorant and inflammatory once again. At 20 this behavior was rebellious, at 50 it's pathetic!



  27. 27

    How desperate is this old hag that she has to resort to this crap to try and get attention.



  28. 28

    Pathetic pieces of shit running their mouths on the internet as usual. You can have the internet, losers…in real life you're still pathetic, no matter how clever, disconnected or snarky you think you are.



  29. 29

    oopsimawesome10 - It is not about money. When I saw her in that ridiculous cheerleader outfit flashing her saggy ass I realized as you should, money will not tell you when it is time to find something else to do if indeed you are multi-talented.

    Madonna should mind her business and realize she is exceptionally lucky to be able to make an astronomical living singing and dancy like a gypsy, and she shouldn't criticize people who actual want to change the world in whatever direction it may be through diligent effort and also if your not a French citizen stay out of French politics.

    Ok, saying that Le pen is a nazi and what Madonna did is way overboard and she should be punished for it. But to the people who say that Marine is not racist… come on! Just listen to her and even her dad talk during their meetings, or maybe it's just because you agree with her and that's another problem… Anyway, Perez I just want to add that the website you took the information from i.e. Dailymail supported Marine Le Pen during the last elections in France….That's the reason I personally stopped reading it.



  32. 32

    Marine Le Pen IS a fascist.
    But Madonna is an idiot.
    She hasn't created anything worthwhile in the last 20 years.

    Re: La Garse – HAHA funny how you talk about bullying when all your comments posted on this website are to critize Perez, calling him "idiot sell-out", "sell-out asshole", "jerk" etc… when you obviously don't know him… I don't always agree with Perez but at least I'm respectful and I don't judge him without any reason. So keep doing whatever you want if you want to but don't accuse people of bullying if you are yourself bullying people…



  34. 34

    Re: fukmadona – I would agree with you, except that when Roman Polanski was NOT extradited by France to the US, many French people felt very comfortable commenting on his case, American culture, and "Puritanical Americans". Oh, and many French people also commented on American "politics' and culture when serial sex assaulter Strauss-Kahn was, god forbid, handcuffed in public, when he was "upper class". People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.



  35. 35

    DId anyone even see this performance? Because what i saw on you tube showed a lot of images of people morphing into other people and Madonna herself morphing in to other people and it was for the song "Nobody Knows Me" Some images where disturbing and definitely controversial however the swastika appears and disappears a few times and I believe the image plays to the songs title "nobody knows me" which could go either way as to what Madonna may or may not believe about Le Pen. I suggest you watch then comment.



  36. 36

    Why, oh why is this woman so willing to look like such a desperate hag???!!! does she not realize how pathetic she looks? She will do anything and everything to stay in the spotlight. PLEASE give it up already, you are a washed up old hag that no one gives a fuck about anymore. And for God's sake, fix that damned gap tooth!

    I know Perez will have to defend his idol, no matter who she attacks, so I don't expect much from him.

    Madonna'a Berg family cult is NOT "Jewish mysticism" & they will be the first to tell you that, even though the media hasn't bothered to catch on.

    Her association with kabbalah is specifically with an organization run by one ex-Jewish family that distorts the traditional Jewish kabbalah with an anti-Semitic political agenda that they sell for a personal profit & cater to extremist-liberals.

    They teach that Jews aren't mentioned in the Bible & that Judaism is the source of all chaos & the opposite of kabbalah. They tracy that Israeli Jews are NOT Israelites but are European impostors, usurpers, occupiers & nazis. They say they are "not even human."

    They teach that 9-11 victims died because they were selfish & that Judaism cused anti-Semitism & the Holocaust.

    They teach that Jews oppose kabbalah. They teach that only their family has the true tradition of kabbalah & that Judaism is a false expression of that wisdom.



  38. 38

    madonna did all this weird dramatic stuff in the 80s to get attention seems like the recipe again just like the woman says.

    perez needs to distance himself from her before she does anything else he wont thou but if shes willing to do this and this is hideous behaviour from her im a fan of hers and i think this is disgusting.. but its nothing new shes just recycling the same old recipe she did in the 80s



  39. 39

    express yourself !!! you wack jobs since when everyone start been so care about politics you bitches put your nose in every little things she dose face it SHES THE QUEEN like it or not…. unlike you little people she's a living legend and you wack hoes all you have is HATE in your fucked up brain ….marine le pen is a nazi her father is a nazi… YOU BITCHES DONT KNOW SHIT BUT YOUR OPENING YOUR MOUTH LIKE A FUCKING TOILET … SHAME ON YOU !!!!

    Re: MikelJoshua – So, according to you, putting a swastika on someone's forehead isn't bullying? I'm not exactly P.C. but you need to reconsider what the term 'bullying' actually means (and yes, Madonna bullied Marie Le Pen and has also been known to bully her staff by speaking down to them and even humiliating them in front of a crowd)

    I love Madonna for her music, when it's good. Her Mashup with "Born This Way" is a good way to make a point, without actually saying anything. But throwing actual politics into her visuals is quite disappointing. I agree, it's unnecessary bullying, and seriously off topic with her overall musical presentation. I wish she would find a way back to her "Ray Of Light" when she was more spiritual and mature.



  45. 45

    Oh you bad girl Madonna!! lmao!! Holy hell , there are like 2 people posing as 15 people saying the same retarded shit!! Oh Madonna … how dare you….so out of line….haaaaaahaaaaaaaa!!! Bullying? You fucktards watch American political ads all day as you sit on your nuts eating hot and ready pizza from little ceasars. Do those ads slander much? Right….. So if you have a second….could you do me a favor and FUCK OFF!

    all of you saying those are her political ideas and that she should keep them to herself, lets also remember it is HER show, and she decides to perform and show whatever she pleases, it is her art and she decides what makes the cut, if you dont like it or you disagree you always have the option to not look, and I also think the comparisons are quite right, not because Marine is a nazi, but because her fascist ideas are making a living hell for lots of people, especially gay teenagers, as those who killed themselves last year, who are also despicted in the same video… a video is also art and art is not to be censored

    I agree with the posts calling this slander. It's actually cruel, given the reputation of her father that she is trying to disinherit. Also, I'm finding that Madonna has veered far from "contradictory" - as she may like to spin it - to down right hypocracy. Her show is FILLED with Satanic symbolism, violence, slaughter . . . very evil imagery and then she turns around and hurls Nazi slurs? Does she even know who the Nazi's were? They were a group of people responsible for the deaths of over $6 million Jews. That is not a charge to indiscriminately hand out. I'm sure she'll say in an affected accent, "Relax people, I was being ironic (eyeroll)" No Madonna you were not, you don't know what the word irony means and you were being your typical illinformed and immature self. I never thought I would say this, but it's time for her to retire. I am so sick of her idiocy these days. When she was younger and softer her random idioc statments and actions seemed easier to swallow. Some people melow with age and others become cranky bitter old farts that are just nasty to be around.



  51. 51

    She needs to quit cramming politics down everyone's throat. People pay for tickets for a show not to see her political views. Plus - what a hypocrite - she goes to Tel Aviv to preach "peace" yet her entire show has ak47s and violence in it. Rather moronic if you ask me.



  52. 52

    Its Perez web site - he can say what he wants. Its Madonnas show - she can say whatever she likes. So what! I think she does what she always does. Bullying doesnt come into it. Good on you M. Can't wait to see you. Xxx

    what ever happened to freedom of speech? It is not bullying on Madonna's part she is giving a voice to something she believes in, she has very strong political views. I read most peoples comments stating Madonna is bullying, and the majority of you are calling her an old hag or frog! That is bullying!! Madonna is 54 and an icon in her own right! Educate yourselves….read another site apart from perezhilton.com…plus the swastika used is buddhist!
