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!
