Madonna concert causes riot


Madonna has hit back at reports that claimed that a riot broke out at her Paris concert because her show lasted just 45 minutes. Earlier reports had suggested that fans were angry that she played only ten songs, but the 53-year-old has taken to her official site to clarify the controversy. “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,” quoted her as writing on the site. “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,” she wrote. TMZ had reported that the people in audience who staged the riot were not angry about the shortened set, but rather about the pop icon’s use of a video featuring a swastika.
