Madonna angers anti-gun groups during Edinburgh show
Madonna continues to court controversy on her MDNA tour which, incidentally, rolls into Dublin's Aviva Stadium on Tuesday night.
Madge's live show includes a segment in which she brandishes a machine gun and pistol on stage (ever so risqué, no?) and cavorts around with the weapons on stage. However, at Madonna's recent show in Edinburgh last Saturday night she was warned by police to not attempt the stunt, especially in the light of the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
A spokesperson for Mothers Against Guns told Scottish newspaper The Daily Record: "Madonna and her dancers using replica guns was always in bad taste but given what happened in Colorado it is even worse. She should know better."
Madonna doesn't cede to anyone though, it seems. The stunt went off during her show as planned, even despite rumours that the show might be cancelled if she attempted them.
The Queen of Pop seems to be wilfully drawing controversy on this tour, having exposed various body parts and even superimposing a swastika on a picture of French National Front leader Marine Le Pen during a show in Israel.
What'll she get up to tomorrow in the Aviva? We can hardly wait.
