Madonna Speaks Out About Olympia Concert

Madonna Speaks Out About Olympia Concert

Madonna tries to keep a low profile as she, her boyfriend Brahim Zaibat, and her daughter Lourdes Leon leave the Ritz hotel on Saturday (July 28) in Paris, France.

The 53-year-old entertainer, who was booed at the end of her abbreviated concert on Thursday night, released a statement via her official website:

“Playing the Olympia was a magical moment for me and it was real treat to do this special show for my fans and be so close to them. Unfortunately at the end of the show – after I left the stage – a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pretending to be angry fans. The press reports have focused on this and not the joyous aspect of the evening. But nothing can take away or ruin this very special evening for me and my fans. When I looked out in the audience, everyone I saw had a smile on their face. I look forward to having this wonderful experience again.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Madonna cutting her show short?

She needs to retire.

# 2

she used to be so cool and edgy
it is like the stars of the 80′s are a shrug when it comes to relevance now
when was her latest hit?
no one wants to see gramma tiiitties
and she and jlo are pathetic with the paid for boyfriends sans lives
madonna needs to have a britney breakdown if she wants attention nowadays, or a lindsay lohan car crashing druggie problem
nothing madonna does really makes any waves anymore
madonna? ‘shrug’

That is not the Ritz Hotel, it actually is the Hotel De Crillon.

@hello: You call a person 30 years in the business making more way more money than the hottest artist irrelevant lmao

The funny thing about Madonna is that she has been boring since about 1991. She probably has to do stupid things just to get some attention. Pretty soon she will be an old hag grabbing **** under the dinner table. I also understand that she has bad gas. Too much vegetarian nonsense will do that to a person. My wife only eats vegetables and her underwear is so stained that we have to throw it away every few weeks.

OMG the picture of her side view…..I’m going to have a nightmare tonight…
People, just say NO to plastic surgery. Madge’s facelift is a frightening example..
But I digress….
This chick has never had a nice thing to say about anyone or anything except for herself.
And yes, she needs to retire and make it retroactive!!!

it’s frightening how less respect people have for her. Madonna managed a long and good career for decades now…I guess that is more then all of you can say. Calling her irrelevant is like calling lindsay lohan a good actress. Madonna never had personal scandals like britney, x-tina or all the others twits. She never made the press for drug or alcohol related situations – just for her political engagement or sexual wise…but that’s more than a lot of other stars can say.

blah blah blah

funny how oblivious she is to any critic… live under your ovn lies, one day you will wake up and stadion will be empty… that day will cuum soon…

quack, quack… whack whack…. the embodiment of self-grandiosity!!!

@hello: That must be why her opinion on flowers made international headline news.. because every irrelevant star out there can do that, right? The idiot that said that she’s boring since 1991… right, is that why she still has a massively successful career? Is that why her tour is going to be the biggest of the year, beating the current “it” girl? If Madonna was so boring, people wouldn’t keep talking about her and they wouldn’t keep ripping her off left and right like LG does (and so do many other pop stars).

Madonna didn’t cut her show short, it was a showcase, not a full tour show. Those type of shows are generally under an hour.

If she wasn’t 53 I could of think that she is pregnant in the first picture.

I was there. To clear up a few things:
Madonna played for 50 mins. 50. And half-way, she got “political” (I’d hardly call her speech political, just a way to get more attention) and decided to give up a 7min speech.
That’s not what people paid for.

Also, lowest tickets started at 89€. Some fans even paid up to 249€ since the Olympia is a mythical concert hall in Paris.

I think it’s time for her to publicly acknowledge she’s old. If you’re gonna play for 40min, then don’t charge people that much.

260 € for 45mn !!!!!!! shame madonna ; berck

I think she’s had a great career and I love the albums True Blue and Ray of Light. But she is past her sell-by date. Her music has been bad for years and no amount of young, hip producers she hires to help her can cover the fact, that she just doesn’t have it anymore. There’s a lack of credibilty and her own blindness to critique and her shortcomings as a performer makes it worse.

Such a liar…

Lourdes hair is terrible. It looks so damaged.

Guys,

You can hate her and say what you want about her. Yet, she is one of the happiest people alive and, if we all lived like that, just seeking and doing what makes us happy, this world would be a much better place. you must agree with that. If you do not, then you have rocks in your head, brainwashed by social conventions, which are truly meaningless. So, in order to achieve this, she leads an unconventional life. Better than you sitting in your pathetic cubicle typing this and bashing her. Her original goal was to spread positive vibes because this earth desperately needs them and she has succeeded.

Madonna is very simply the most popular singer ever.

More importantly, Madonna is an adorable person, creative, beautiful and sooooooooo sexy!

No no it was sh*t! EVERYONE BOOED HER. Pay 300€ for 45min of concert…. Thank you Madonna!
