A senior Russian official has implied that Madonna is a moralising “slut” after the singer used a Moscow concert to state her support for the jailed feminist punk band Pussy Riot.
“With age, every former s. tries to lecture everyone on morality,” Dmitry Rogozin, a deputy prime minister, wrote on Twitter late on Wednesday, using the first letter of the Russian word for “slut” or “whore”. “Especially during overseas tours.”
Madonna scrawled “Pussy Riot” across her back and performed “Like a Virgin” wearing the band’s trademark balaclava during a concert in Moscow on Tuesday. She praised the band’s three women – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich – for being courageous and said she was praying for their freedom.
Maybe Madonna still has something to contribute after all.
