Madonna concert video takes shot at McCain
Madonna made her political stance abundantly clear during the kick-off performance of her new tour. Apparently her concert video featured a photo of John McCain amid images of global warming and Hitler, while Obama's image neighboured shots of John Lennon and Ghandi. I wonder who she's voting for.
Pop star Madonna kicked off her international "Sticky and Sweet" tour in typical fashion, courting controversy with a none-too-subtle jab at U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
The 50-year-old star featured video images at her show in Cardiff, Wales. One slate of pictures showed destruction, global warming, Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and McCain as another more positive sequence featured the late Beatle John Lennon, Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Outside of the political references, the show was replete with plenty of costumes and glitter.
Dancers graced the stage in top hats and tail coats as the singer breakdanced and did some pole dancing, too.
