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 needs to get a grip and quit trying to compete with the youngers - she is not young anymore no matter how fit she is and hard she tries - she would earn a lot more respect if she found something more age appropriate to perform - also - the state department is involved with this threat - this is serious - "fans" could be injured - but yet the show will go on? For who? Madonna's point? You would think she cared more about the safety of her performers and fans than herself but oh no... the show will go on - she better hope nobody makes good on their threat....

If anyone doubts the power of the media to modify public opinion, that photo should clear it all up. She looks horrendous. I'm not saying she's ever been cute, but man, I'd hate to be on the bad side of the paparazzi.

Madonna fights female ageism now.
She continues battles on many fronts. I give her nothing but credit.
In one old battle, the "Who's That Girl Tour" 1987, she fought off criticism labeling her a perverted whoring exhibitionist because she jerked-off on stage...for an "arena sized" audience. That old negative criticism sounds very much like some of the comments here now in 2012. And what about that formerly negative criticism? Well, the biggest stars showcased on TMZ are now celebrated for it. Madonna is a trailblazer that keeps going. More power to her.

To think I used to like her - but wait, that was about 30 years ago. What an embarassment to older women everywhere!

Madonna "How can I make people pay attention to me?"
PR Agent "I could call in a terrorist threat for your concert?"
Madonna "Love it"

Putin is not a man, he's a mouse. Most dictators are absent of basic manhood.
