Madonna has banned potential US Vice President Sarah Palin from any of her gigs.

The singer is currently on a world tour to promote her latest album 'Hard Candy', and told a crowd in New Jersey last night: "Sarah Palin can't come to my party. Sarah Palin can't come to my show. It's nothing personal', before making a joke about Palin's husband's snowmobile failing to start.

Madonna has also shown anti-Republican video footage on her tour, depicting images of John McCain alongside starving children.
