The French Think Madonna is a Real Salope

This is exactly the reason why I don’t go to overpriced concerts: sometimes, they get cancelled because of “sore throats” (I’m looking squarely at you, Adele), sometimes the performers are just plain ol’ “sick,” and other times, they decide to cut the concert down to 45 minutes. What divas! On Thursday night, the Material Girl was bombarded with boos and demands for reimbursement after quitting the stage early at Paris concert hall l’Olympia.

The concert was supposed to be an “intimate” gathering for members of her fan club, with tickets ranging from 80-280 euros (that’s $98-346 for you mathematically challenged people). Fans who waited hours and even slept on the street overnight to fill the 2,700-seat concert hall gathered outside after the show, screaming, “Remboursez! Remboursez!” demanding that they get their money back for the paltry performance.

The riot got nastier and escalated into a Madge bashing, as fans started chanting “Salope!” which translates into “slut.” Those cheeky Frenchmen, always so polite! Ironically, the concert was purposely added to Madonna’s MDNA tour to “celebrate France’s tolerance” in an effort to appease those offended by her swastika stunt a few weeks ago. Maybe it’s time to hire a better PR team, Miz Ciccone.
