Madonna Angers French Fans With 'Short' Performance

Madonna is having a rough time over in Europe, with her latest Paris concert ending in a chorus of angry boos over the singer's super-short 45-minute performance. Many from the crowd shouted "refund" as the singer beat a hasty exit, reports Sky News. 

Tickets to the concert cost upwards of €300 ($A356.65). This isn't Madonna's first run-in with the French, having already tripped up with far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen by displaying photos of her decorated with a swastika. The party, which won 18 per cent of the vote in this year's presidential elections, promptly sued her. "I know that I made a certain Marine Le Pen upset with me," Madonna said at the Friday concert, reported the celebrity magazine Female First. "And it's not my intention to make enemies ... it's my intention to promote tolerance," the singer told the crowd. 

France has gotten relatively light treatment in comparison with the rest of Madonna's wild and crazy MDNA world tour. In Turkey she decided to show a little boob and succeeded in offending many in the 55,000-strong crowd in the mostly Muslim country. But nothing beats her Rome appearance, where she decided to yank down her pants in order to show off what MTV described as a "bare(ish) bottom." 

Still, Parisians were pretty mad at Madonna over her short appearance at Olympia Club, which was a last-minute addition to her tour schedule, according to Britain's Mirror. The Queen of Pop's next appearance is set for Warsaw on the first of August, but a group of Catholic youths there are already calling for the show to cancelled in response to the singer's provocative behaviour, according to Agence-France Press.
