Madonna booed after 45-min Paris show
Madonna was on the receiving end of an angry backlash for ending her Paris concert after just 45 minutes. With the Internet awash with criticism of the former pop queen, tweets posted by disappointed fans included: "Madonna branded a slut and booed in Paris".
The angry reaction was in sharp contrast to the enthusiastic cheers which greeted her when she exited the stage at the Olympia theatre after barely three quarters of an hour.
The 2,700-strong audience remained in place expecting an encore, and the mood turned sour as it became clear that the 53-year-old diva wasn't coming back.
Videos on YouTube showed angry fans shouting for a refund. "Not even 10 songs, no thank you, no goodbye," one spectator told AFP. "We came up from Montpellier (south of France) and paid €180 (RM690) a ticket. It's a bit steep."
The Olympia concert was Madonna's second controversial appearance in Paris this year. Last month, she appeared at the Stade de France and angered the far-right National Front by projecting an image of party leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika superimposed on her forehead.
The National Front has said it will sue Madonna over the incident.
