Last week, following the passage by St. Petersburg, Russia of a law banning gay “propaganda” which bars (and imposes fines for) gay groups, gay books and periodicals, LGBT Pride events, and other “promotion” of homosexuality, there were calls from Russian journalists for boycotts of the city.
Madonna’s first tour in Russia this year drew the ire of orthodox Christian activists. Now she vows to defy a new law against promoting homosexuality when she performs in President-elect Vladimir Putin’s hometown in August.
Madonna Answers St Petersburg’s Controversy:“I’m a freedom fighter.
Is all about freedom of expression
Freedom to choose to speak to act
Always with humanity and compassion
I will come to St. Petersburg to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels opressed.
I don’t run away from adversity.
I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity.”
MADONNA – “MDNA’
NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE NOW
Madonna’s latest studio album entitled “MDNA” is available now. The album is a lot of fun and almost a longer version of “Confessions on a Dance Floor”. It’s really quite good, but that’s not a surprise when it comes to the woman who has been working non-stop in the entertainment industry for 30 years. She’s one of the few artists who is known in every corner of the globe, every generation regardless of race, religious denomination, political affiliation or sexual orientation. She manages to attract the best parts of all them to her.
Pick up your copy of MDNA here and go for the deluxe edition so you can get a bunch of additional tracks. The album hit #1 in 50 countries before it’s release date. She will also be touring the world this year starting in May. Check to see if she’s performing in a city near you! www.ticketmaster.com
