Does Madonna fuel controversy for her fans or for herself?
Sex, religion, now politics. Madonna, true to style, has kicked off her world concert tour “Sticky & Sweet” with controversy by juxtaposing images of Adolf Hitler with John McCain, the Republican senator running for president alongside Democratic Senator Barack Obama and with Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe. Obama was named in a sequence with Mahatma Gandhi, John Lennon and Al Gore. ”Outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive,” said McCain’s camp.
Madonna, who turned 50 this month, is listed as one of the world’s most successful female recording artists of all time, having sold over 200 million records in a career spanning 25 years. Do you think she fuels controversy to keep fans coming back for more or is it a personal mission for The Material Girl?
