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.

Folks, Madonna is wearing that cheerleader uniform because the first single from her new album called "Give Me All Your Lovin" has a cheerleader theme with some cheering in it. Watch the VEVO official video ....

That's just how the song turned out in the studio when she recorded it. It sounds kind of like an old Beach Boys song or "The B52s" or something .... surf pop. I think some of that style of music is pretty good. I sometimes listen to that sub-genre on internet radio like Pandora. It's cool.

It would be like, if Marylin Monroe hadn't died... and at 86 years old, she was still sporting that white dress and standing over random updrafts. That's how sad Madonna is. She's hanging on to the youth that has long since gone. Intentional wardrobe malfunctions, dressing in cheer leader uniforms, doing techno dance songs... give it up already. You're not 20.

This is actually one time when I would hope for a terrorist attack. And there is something so wrong with an old lady in a cheerleader costume.

I'm showing my age here, but lately Madonna's pictures are all starting to look like Bette Davis in the movie Whatever happened to Baby Jane? The excessive lipstick and make up. It's actually pretty scary!

I agree with Elton that Madonna should tone down the over the top sexual stuff. She's already "been there and done that" on previous world tours.

There's no denying that she's made some great hit music for years and years though.

I was hoping she had 3 or 4 more big keyboard heavy pop hits and slow songs for this album. Oh well.

It's always THE MUSIC created in the studio that matters the most to me, not how the artist looks or how old they are. If an older musician makes great songs that blow away anything younger musicians can do then they should be as popular as they ever were all over again.

Madonna is so pathetic that someday she is going to be 70 years old, on stage with a walker singing Borderline

Oh My God! who dressed this old granny in a cheerleading outfit? this looks pathetic. The only thing that would have even been more desperate would be if her young 20 something spanish boyfriend was in the picture with the insecure, washed up, grandma Madonna

Madonna just might still be onstage at age 70 in Las Vegas still strutting around a little. You Madonna haters going to have to just deal with it while you are worshipping ONLY young musicians under 25 or whatever. Lots of older musicians are prospering in Vegas. Celine Dion isn't all that young anymore you know. Lots of older easy listening singers like Tony Bennett are still going strong at like age 75.

Madonna hardly cares all that much about what people think about her age. Would the haterz care if she was 45 now? Is that too old? What age exactly is a female musician officially declared to be "over the hill"? Inquiring minds want to know.

This old lady needs to stop performing. She's liable to break a hip.
Plus she's scary looking.

If she were an animal her whole muzzle would be gray. As it is, I'll bet her old lady chin hairs are all gray. No matter how hard she tries and how gross she gets to prove a point she's still an old lady. Period.
