We wouldn't expect anything less from Her Madgesty!
ESPECIALLY with the controversial summer she's been having!
Madonna is currently bringing her MDNA tour to Moscow, and took the opportunity to declare her support of Russian rock group Pussy Riot, whose members are currently standing trial for speaking out against Vladimir Putin with a "punk prayer" in political protest during a Moscow show!
If convicted on their charges of hooliganism, for which they've already served five months, the three members arrested could be in prison for seven years!
And that just doesn't fly with the Queen!
"Obviously I believe in freedom of speech and I'm against censorship, so I hope that the judge is lenient with them and that they are freed soon."
Such a shame that there are still places in the world that can put someone away for that long over a speaking their mind!
Thanks for taking a stand, gurl!
