Madonna performing at Ramat Gan Stadium in Tel Aviv, Israel (5/31)

Madonna officially kicked off her MDNA world tour last Thursday in Israel. I didn't mention it before because, well, fuck her. After only one show, French politician Marine Le Pen wants to sue the singer for being an insufferable cunt. Now she didn't use those words exactly, but I think that's what she means. From the Daily Mail:
An image of National Front leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead appeared on a giant screen at the singer's concert in Tel Aviv, Israel on Thursday. The photo of Le Pen was superimposed with a swastika on her forehead and was displayed for a split second alongside shots of other political figures, including American Republican Sarah Palin and Chinese president Hu Jintao. The furious politician has threatened to sue Madonna if she repeats the stunt when her tour reaches France in July.

Ms Le Pen said: "We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes. If she does that in France, we'll be waiting."
Ha Ha, punked.
"We are not a Nazi party, and object to being depicted as such," said a source in the party. "If you accuse the National Front of being anti-Semitic and racist then you accuse a fifth of the French people of being anti-Semitic and racist. If Madonna repeats this slur in France then she will certainly be taken to court."
Does anybody else feel the douche-cringe as much as I do right now? What happened to Madonna's edginess? Thirty years ago -- when her career was actually hot -- Madonna would do things like wear a pointy bra on stage or make out with black Jesus. Now look at her lameness in all of its predictable glory. I understand that the Material Grandmother is opposed to Palin and Le Pen (since they don't fall in lockstep with her radical commie views) but Hu Jintao? He's the boss of China, Madonna's wet dreamland. China has everything she'd love to see in America: state-controlled media, the outlawing of religion, and forced abortions. If the Chinese government allowed their citizens to talk in fake British accents, Madonna would move there in a second.
