Madonna

Swastika BACKLASH

Fueled Paris Riot

7/29/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728_madonna_tmzThat riot at a Madonna concert in Paris had nothing to do with her brief performance -- it was payback for Madge's repeated use of a video featuring a swastika on a French politician ... this according to fans at the show and sources connected to the venue.

TMZ spoke with several people who were in the crowd Thursday night (and have been to several of Madonna's recent concerts). They say there were 10 or so "fans" in the audience who started the ruckus ... and those people were overheard yelling about Marine Le Pen.

We're told several members of this group we're holding up signs they'd brought to show support for Le Pen.

Madonna has been at odds with Le Pen ever since she started projecting the right-wing leader's face -- with a swastika over it -- during this tour.



We're told local police spoke to members of Madonna's crew the day after the concert ... and said they believe the riot was preplanned by a group of locals looking to cause trouble.

 According to our sources, the majority of Madonna fans knew to expect a short show -- as all her club dates tend to be -- so that could not have been the cause of the riot.

Madonna looks pathetic and desperate as she will do anything for some attention.

Remember back in Madonna's heyday of the 80's when she screamed to the top of the charts for her dancing & singing? Since then, she's had to resort to flashing her boobs, making a SEX book, playing with guns on stage, painting profanity on herself, superimposing swastikas on political figures, etc. Pretty pathetic that she's so desperate to do anything for attention and tries to pass it off as performance art. She obviously didn't have enough talent to hang onto her fame for the long run so she resorted to hot button gimmicks to try and stay relevant.

Get the old lady a wheel chair. This is one of the most insecure person on the planet. She looks like a delusional old lady starving for attention. Nobody cares and stop showing your privy bits, your scary the children....o wait, I forget, you have sex with children. Anyone you are old enough to have given birth to...is a NO NO!!!! just ewww...that poor child and Madonna's boyfriend...

It's sad really. Againg pop star so desperate to retain a shred of relevance by creating controversy. But why make your concerts political? When has her music ever been? She must have seen roger waters performing the wall?

why people even buy tickets to see this woman is beyond me. God, she gets winded trying to dance like she did back in the day. How many times are people going to fall into her pathetic attempts to stay relevent. Swastika's, showing her boobs, pointing fake guns after aurora and the list goes on. Disrespecting Lady Gaga, a 55 year old wearing a cheerleading outfit..I don't know, I guess I for one think at best if one likes Madonna at her age, just buy the album. Here she is again in the news for doing something stupid but I guess at her age, bad press is good press.

Why does she even think she's relevant....flashing her old ugly body, doing stupid **** like this. If she was a politician, which she'll probably become, she would be nominated for asshead of the week on www.assheadnation.com
