Madonna Protests The Pussy Riot Sentencing! Read Her Statement HERE!

madonna pussy riot protest

Madonna is NOT happy!

As a loyal supporter of Pussy Riot's political expression, the Queen of Pop has released a statement in protest of the Russian band's "inhumane" fate.

Disgusted by the two-year prison punishment the women received for protesting Vladimir Putin's oppressive policies, her Madgesty states:

"I protest the conviction and sentencing of Pussy Riot to a penal colony for two years for a 40 second performance extolling their political opinions.

Even if one disagrees with the location or how they chose to express themselves, the sentence is too harsh and in fact is inhumane.

I call on all those who love freedom to condemn this unjust punishment. I urge artists around the world to speak up in protest against this travesty. They've spent enough time in jail. I call on ALL of Russia to let Pussy Riot go free."

The Queen has spoken! Who's with her??

Madonna doesn't back down easily –and obviously she has amazing connections — so we feel a storm of high-profile protests brewing!

    Not a Madonna fan. But she's right.



  2. 2

    Agree with her - the punishment was excessive. On another note, what's that pucker thing on the inside of her left elbow …



  3. 3

    Wow. Madonna is having delusions of importance. She is an ENTERTAINER. She is not a politician; she is important only on a stage or in pop culture. She can call on anyone she wants for any reason. The chances are, however, that Putin is going to shrug and laugh just as soon as someone tells him who she is. Russia is not the United States. The women in that band knew what the consequences were likely to be for their actions. That Madonna doesn't agree with it all matters to no one except maybe Madonna, her family, and rabid liberals who don't seem to understand that people who do dumb things should ALWAYS be held accountable. They got what they deserved. Madonna needs to STFU and remember how important she REALLY is.

    Agreed…nothing but women hating is going on and WOMEN should stand up to this!!! Enough is enough….there is a war on women WORLDWIDE and we cannot be silent….Most men fear women and therefore want to oppress them…sad.

    [re=6155983]Re] Rabid liberals think people should be accountable…stop generalizing and grouping all liberals in one group….I think conservatives are the bane of the world…how do you like that?

    True, Madonna has the power to suck all up the pr at her age, what else can she do?

    Gah, I saw a Keisha concert…..it was suckage, bad and messy. Madonna will always find or claw her way to the top, even with this crap album situation…..

    Re: Yes You Bore Me

    You are saying that they got got what they deserved — because Russia is not the United States!?! Tell me… does a person from Iran deserve to be stoned to death when they stand up for their political beliefs, simply because Iran is not the United States? Did the Jews in Nazi Germany get what they deserved, because Nazi Germany wasn't the United States? Your logic is flawed, and you come across as just a wee bit xenophobic in your posts.



  9. 9

    I'm sure Putin and all of Russia will drop what they're doing to accommodate a has-been singer.



  10. 10

    Lots of us believe the same, but I guess coming from Madonna it is much more important?



  11. 11

    Re: yes – Lol, you're an idiot. Women will always be nothing more than a hot hole to stick our peens in.



  12. 12

    Re: demode – I get what Re: Yes You Bore Me – meant though…You could argue the "freedom of speech" but these ladies pissed on the people of this churches "freedom of assembly"..neither is more important then the other, so while I agree with them, I disagree with their platform. Madonna need to just stick to pop-songs.



  13. 13

    Great way for PR Madonna. They lucked out. Two years is better than seven. It still is too long though but stupid is as stupid does.



  14. 14

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Agree!!! The word accountability.. If they were men they would still be doing time!! Its Not a woman "CARD" thing!! But that is what you guys do best!!
    You have NOTHING to say about the Syrian people who are dying everyday but some idiots running around is NEWS!! Fucking Amazing!!!

  15. Its DESECRATION says – reply to this


    15

    They were sentenced for desecration of the church not for standing up for their political beliefs. Absolutely stand up for your rights and beliefs but its DISGUSTING they chose a church to voice themselves and even more so that many people can't see why its so wrong. If it were a Synagog or Mosque there would be outrage! I don't care if the government has their hands in the churches pocket or whatever their reason - its still a sanctuary and place of worship!
    Choose a better venue to preach your politics.



  16. 16

    Re: NookiesWA – if you have a mother, sisters, or daughters, i'm sure they must really appreciate your views on women. you sound like a stupid teenage boy with a tiny dick that never gets laid.



  17. 17

    I would bet NOBODY will do that in that Country again!!! Something we need to learn in this country! You can kill somebody in this country and get WHAT??? Slap on the wrist in some cases!! Stick a gun in someones face and rob them! 3yrs Whooo I so scared!!!
    The world illegal means what in this country?? HA!!
    Make excuses for someone to vote here without an ID!! HA!!
    Work hard in life and now I should be OK giving more money for some lazy shit to have food stamps and a nicer car then I drive. Ha!!
    They are not asking for money for us to help the military people who lose everything! But we need to help are lazy or illegals people!! Fucking Amazing!! STAND UP for the right things in our own country!!! FIRST!!!



  18. 18

    She may say she's protesting, but this November she'll vote for the presidential candidate that supports Putin. She's a hypocrite.

    Madonnas rich enough and obviously concerned about their freedom why doesn't she bail them out or pay for their legal expences?



  20. 20

    Re: Yenkme – Agreed.



  21. 21

    Was MDNA fined ten million dollars for protesting? If so, by who fined them?



  22. 22

    Re: AttFinch – Did I give you permission to speak woman?



  23. 23

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Are you really supporting the decision to lock up these girls for 2 years because they're expressing themselves? Expressing themselves in the same manner you are right now? 2 years in jail for you too, you disgusting piece of shit.



  24. 24

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – not to mention, Madonna is taking advantage of fame and using it as a platform to give a voice to these poor women for being harshly punished for expressing themselves.



  25. 25

    Re: sethpang – How about they " Express themselves" at your Dads funeral or at a dark movie theater with hoods on? What you fail to get is not that they express thrmselves but how they do it and you don't do it by shitting all over other people wherever you feel like it. Especially at an Orthodox Church of all places. It was disrespectful.



  26. 26

    Madonna is going this for PR and the minute these girls get released her publicist will make sure its a good photo op for M to.meet them and get some self glorifying free PR. And yeah she'll vote for the big O which negates her entire PR campaign for these vacant women.



  27. 27

    geez, madonna will jump into anything just to stay relevant….how desperate!

  33. 33

    So how soon do you think Lourdes is going to show up in see through bras and barely there skirts, shorts or dresses. "Must top my mother, but how?"



  34. 34

    We fully support Madonna's brave and beautiful fight. Freedom of speech is unique in the US but it is far from the case in a lot of other countries such as Russia.



  35. 35

    Re: NookiesWA – Says the guy surfing a pink site, reading about a woman performer, supporting other women performers and then commenting on it.

    Go troll somewhere else, 14 year old boy. Get out of your mom's basement and get some sunshine, it could do wonders for your social life… or lack of. I hear youtube is looking for commenters like yourself… why don't you go check it out.

    they should've been jailed for that stupid name and being unable to sing alone. As for Madonna, anything that comes from her these days is just completely irrelevant.



  39. 39

    They are a bunch of Idiots posting vile comments about her clearly she does not need the P.R. to stay relevant when she sold 300 millions albums and with this tour alone has grossed over $400 million.
    When Is America gonna stop supporting countries that torture Gays?
    If this was black people being torture or jailed or denied human rights we would have the likes of Dillon, Springsteen U2 doing concerts as they have for human rights in South Africa.
    Madonna believes in equal rights for all but they are plenty of people enjoying the fact that they love to Bully for their selfish religious beliefs to show hate and dehumanizing treatment of Gays that has force gay youth on the verge of suicide?

    When people start having family members that are gay starting to commit suicide for not being accepted as equal and seeing what damage this does to a human beings?

    How can anyone say that GOD is love from this?

    Re: Yenkme – the verdict was never inspired by putin.the protest for putin was that he always caved in and gave too much power to the church.the verdict is proof of how much! you can go there and suck the christian fundamentalists dick all u want.the molested kids r shut up like the gays anyway.russia:pedophile paradise



  45. 45

    I understand that laws should be obeyed, however this is a 'movement' for basic Human rights. No matter where you're from, you should be able to speak up, express and believe in anything you want. It's not about Western culture, it's about Humanity. To make a change or a difference, we must stand up, even if at times the repercussions will be harsh.



  46. 46

    Beautiful photos… Can't wait for another more…

    What "freedom of speech"?? Those hags were shouting anti-Christian slogans IN A CHRISTIAN church DURING service!! There was not a single anti-Putin or anti-Government word spit out by those idiots. Orthodox churches in Russia hold special place in people's psyche, even for atheists. Because they were blown up, they were desecrated by the communists, people were burned there alive by the Nazis during the war. You don't just go and shit on this. You simply DON'T.

    You are grossly misinformed along with all those geriatric "celebrities" that are trying to cash in on this nonsense. Do your research before you take sides in this kind of situations.

    This concerns everybody, not just Perez.

    And for those talking about "basic human rights" - well, all I have to say to you is you should be pro-gaybashing and other kinds of "bashing" then. But truthfully, you are just ignorant.

    Re: dark troll – Too much power to the Church? Are you high? The Church called for a thorough investigation on this, just so you know. And that was completely ignored, my little leftie propaganga gobbler. The Church is being bashed by the Russian media EVERY DAY (even more so during this rediculous trial). If you could just stop for a second and think critically, you would quickly realize that no entity with "too much power" would be in a situation like this. Alas, you are clearly incapable of doing so.

    Re: MikelJoshua – How about I come to your Mom's funeral and "speak up" about what a whore she was? And bring some friends along? Idiot.
