The 53-year-old entertainer was in town to perform at Turk Telekom Arena as part of her MDNA tour.
Last week, Madonna kicked off the world tour in Israel “for a very specific and important reason.”
“As you know, the Middle East and all the conflicts that occur here and that have been occurring for thousands of years,” she told the crowd. “They have to stop … You can’t be a fan of mine and not want peace in the world, OK?”
“We are all human beings. We all bleed the same color. We all want to love and be loved,” Madonna added. “If we can all rise above our egos and our titles and the names of our countries and the names of our religions … and treat everyone around us … with dignity and respect, then we are on the road to peace, OK?”
