Madonna

Terrorist Threat

Targets Madonna Concert

8/8/2012 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808_madonna_russia
Someone has made a serious threat to harm spectators and performers at an upcoming Madonna concert in Russia, and the U.S. Embassy is warning Americans who might attend.

The Embassy issued an alert that the U.S. Consulate General in St. Petersburg received info regarding a threat of physical violence against the audience and people on stage at the St. Petersburg concert scheduled for tomorrow.

The Embassy is specifically warning American citizens planning to attend the concert "to remain vigilant regarding their personal security." 

A source directly connected with Madonna tells TMZ they will not be deterred by the threat and the show will go on.

Officials are not giving details on the nature of the threat, but the threats were revealed days after Madonna spoke out in support of a jailed Russian punk band called Pussy Riot.  Madonna believes the group has been unfairly censored.

She is in serious denial....about HER AGE! While thin, she has an old lady body, and it's gross. Her antics SCREAM...MID LIFE CRISIS. I can't stand that woman.

I love this picture. That's madonna with makeup on stage. UGLY. What does she look like when she wakes up with no makeup on?

Please stop enabled this loser. She jumped the Shark about 10 years ago. If you would just ignore her, we could forget about her and she would go away. Despite what Jan Wenner thinks, she has been irrelevant to Music since the early 90s. Now she can no longer sing, and or dance and looks pathetic trying so hard to look sexy. She is like one of those dancing skeletons you put on your door at Halloween and her gapped tooth and hair is making her begin to look like a blond Rusty Denis from the move MASK. Somebody call Cher!!

I bet she'd look decent in some ritzy, designer gowns. Unfortunately she chooses cheerleader skirts and leotards. She's an eye-gouging mess. Go away and enjoy your hard earned money, we've seen enough!

Madonna has lived a very full life so far. She's seen and done it all. She was the queen of pop for a long time. Lot's of people are just JEALOUS of her. It's obvious.

Don't worry about Madonna's desire to be young, wild and crazy again. If young musicians want to have a life like she's had they should work their tails off learning music like she did and get out there onstage and rock the house. Make the fans cheer like crazy for you.

That's how MOST if not all aging rock stars and pop stars are. THEY WANT TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN! Who can blame them? They had one heck of good ride. They're like kids that want to ride the rollercoasters over and over.

Check out this new song called "Headlong Flight" by the STILL AWESOME Canadian rock band "Rush".

OMG Madonna looks like Bette Davis in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane". To anyone who has not seen the movie, please watch it. Not only is it one of her best roles, her character will freak you out. This gives us a peek into Madonna's future look. God help us all because she just will not go away.

The threats are terrible, but I must comment on how horrible she looks in the pic!!! I'll admit that she looks great for her age, I just REALLY wish she would act and dress it!

A source directly connected with Madonna tells TMZ they will not be deterred by the threat and the show will go on.******* Well, it's just the safety of her fans realy, not herself, so why would she abort her show? Bet we'll be seeing half naked pictures again soon.

That picture sure isn't very flattering! She looks like a 60 something yr old crone trying to look like a high-school cheerleader.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this picture was "She looks just like Bette Davis in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane". Then I read alot of the comments and I am not the only one who thought this. Now we know what she will look like in her 70's. Yikes!! Please go away Madonna.

SHE'S the terrorist. Seeing her in that cheer leading costume will give me nightmares for the next 10 years. Even her legs look old. No amount of photoshop can save her anymore. Elton John is right. Gross Gross Gross. Maybe she shouldn't have released all those sex books and pornographic videos so early in her career, cause now.. people really don't care. They're just going to see a 60 year old hasbeen make a fool of herself by thinking she's still a sex symbol,
