Madonna stunned an audience in Turkey during her concert when she turned her song “Human Nature” into a strip tease that ended with her breast exposed. The country’s conservative Muslims must have loved that.
The 53-year-old singer’s MDNA Tour has been controversial from the get go. It kicked off in Israel and included at least two eyebrow raising incidents.
But more than 55,000 people went wild during her performance of at the Turk Telecom Arena in Istanbul when she slipped out of her waist-length jacket, danced around in her bra and then tugged at the straps until her breast was fully exposed.
Next, she unzipped her trousers and stood with her hand in her pants and segued into her song “Like A Virgin.”
Earlier in her tour in Israel, Madonna gave a lengthy speech from the stage unveiling her own peace plan and later did a number where she and her backup dancers carried AK-47 assault rifles.
During an intermission in another show, a video montage flashed on a large screen behind the stage of right-wing French National Front leader Marine Le Pen with a Swastika on her forehead
The image was fleeting but clearly visible, sparking outrage in France and threats of a lawsuit.
Madonna’s MDNA tour will next play in Rome at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday (June 12). She’s outraged the Catholic church in the past with her use of religious symbolism in her videos and shows.
