Madonna Emerges After Heavily Criticized Paris Performance

Madonna Emerges After Heavily Criticized Paris Performance
Entertainment

She has been keeping her head down following her much criticised 45 minute performance in Paris on Thursday.And Madonna was finally seen emerging form her hotel in the French capital today looking very much down in the dumps. The egotistical singer does not seem to have been very pleased at the fury unleashed her way following her appearance at the city’s Olympia club.

In fact she looked like she had just sucked on a lemon as she marched out of the upmarket Ritz Hotel while surrounded by a team of minders.

She was accompanied by her daughter Lourdes, who also seemed far from excited to be sampling the charming French atmosphere.

Perhaps some of the fans who had paid £200 per head, with others paying many times that on the black market, will feel less angry after the Like A Prayer singer’s spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg explained the show as a ‘heartfelt thank you to France.’  However many may be even more infuriated after she said fans were to blame for not realising it was not billed as a full concert.

Miss Rosenberg told MTV: ‘Despite a grueling concert tour, she desperately wanted to perform for her fans in an intimate setting at the historic Olympia as a means to honour her love for French artists, French cinema and a tribute to France’s long history of welcoming and inspiring artists, authors, painters, poets and minorities from other countries over the years.

‘The show was not billed as her full MDNA concert and tremendous effort was made to keep the ticket prices reasonable ($100/£63.50 for 2,000 floor seats) and keep them strictly for her fans.

‘The show cost Madonna close to a million dollars to produce.

‘She has done a handful of club dates in the past and they were never more than 45 minutes.

‘And by the way, she put on a fabulous show, which was streamed for millions of fans around the world.’

While she was on stage for 45 minutes, the Holiday star was attacked for only singing for around 30 minutes – and spending 15 minutes ‘wittering on about politics’.

When she left the stage, the curtains closed behind her with a message reading ‘I love you’.

But when she did not reappear for an encore, audience members began jeering, booing and pelting the stage with bottles. Some shouted obscene slogans about there erstwhile idol, and many demanded a refund.

‘Don’t Touch Me!’ This Parrot Really Doesn’t Like Being Touched (Video)

This is the most polite exchange I’ve ever heard between a parrot and its owner. Of course, that’s almost entirely because of the accents (as well as the fact that I haven’t had the chance to hear many pet owners having conversations with their birds), but it’s still pretty impressive. However, there is something about […]

How We Have Become A Generation That Hopes Things Will Always Get Better

It’s popular belief that Generation-Y is composed of the dreamer and the hopeless romantic. We are labeled the “me” generation, perpetually self-absorbed and overly arrogant. We’re frowned upon as entitled idealists who expect to have everything handed to us. We are viewed as irresponsible and unrealistic. And I must ask, what’s so wrong with that? […]
