Madonna has attempted to dismiss the footage and stories that have emerged after her Paris gig last week, claiming that all the hoo-ha was down to ‘a few thugs’.
The MDNA singer gave her fans a nasty surprise last week, as she only played a 45 minute set in Paris, which didn’t go down very well with some of the gig goers. Concert goers booed the grandma of pop, and demanded a refund before lobbing bottles at the stage.
The plot has taken a twist though, as Madge has now addressed the reports in a statement on her official website, stating: "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.”
She goes on to claim that: "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."
Madges’ rep Liz Rosenberg has also defended the disastrous show, telling MTV News: "Despite a gruelling concert tour, [Madonna] desperately wanted to perform for her fans in an intimate setting at the historic Olympia as a means to honour her love for French artists, French cinema and a tribute to France's long history of welcoming and inspiring artists, authors, painters, poets and minorities from other countries over the years.
"The show was not billed as her full MDNA concert and tremendous effort was made to keep the ticket prices reasonable ($100/£63.50 for 2,000 floor seats) and keep them strictly for her fans."
She then added: "The show cost Madonna close to a million dollars to produce. She has done a handful of club dates in the past and they were never more than 45 minutes. And by the way, she put on a fabulous show, which was streamed for millions of fans around the world."
We’re not quite convinced this is quite right, have a look at the footage below and decide for yourself.
This isn't the only story that has come out of her disastrous gig last week, as the self-proclaimed 'Queen of Pop' has angered the far-right politcal party in France and also flashed her boobs again!
