Madonna goes patriotic for Philadelphia show

After months touring abroad, Madonna was in a patriotic mood for the opening night of her American tour Tuesday night.
“In my country, we have freedom of speech, freedom of expression,” she told the crowd at the sold-out Wells Fargo Center. “Never forget how lucky you are to live where you live.”
Those freedoms are needed for her “MDNA” tour, which she rehearsed at Nassau Coliseum throughout May, with its dark, violent opening that gives way to dance party joy, with cheerleader chants and a high-fashion “Vogue,” as well as a serious video tribute to young men who died after being bullied.
Before the concert, Madonna released a statement asking that parts of her show not be taken out of context and that they be seen as “the journey of a soul from darkness to light.”

As she kicked off the U.S. leg of her “MDNA Tour” in Philadelphia, Madonna said she was happy to party in the USA after touring Europe for three months.
The pop icon told the crowd Tuesday night they should “never forget how lucky you are to live where you live and to have the freedom that you have.” She made the comments after talking about punk-rock group Pussy Riot’s recent arrest in Moscow for the female band’s lyrical content about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Madonna said it was no coincidence that she opened her U.S. tour “where the Declaration of Independence was signed.” Then the 53-year-old yelled: “We are in the land of democracy.”
She also told the crowd: “Don’t get fat and lazy and take that freedom for granted.”

    Oh “God”,

    Everything is relative. That goes for democracy too. If it ever existed.

    It all depends on what one wants to say and
    where and how one wants to say it. In
    the post 9.1.1 the US radio banned
    American Life from its airplay. When it is all said and done, humans only
    listen to what they want to hear. The rest is always gets filtered out.

    I love Madonna, her shows, her style, her
    songs and her videos. She will always be a MUSICAL GODDESS. But I don’t agree
    with her comment here. There was never
    freedom nor democracy anywhere in the world. Getting to vote for lying politicians who
    make, interpret and bend the rules the way they want, does not mean freedom and
    democracy.

    As Madonna herself said, freedom starts
    from within. When one is able to confront and control the beats within and when one is able
    to see others and himself in a more clear light.

    And Pussy Riots are such a talentless
    morons. They don’t even know what they are talking about. They are far below Madonna’s leauge. I hope Madonna stops supporting them. They are not wortthy of her Madjesty’s support.
