Russia may be a State without much religion and it is clear they have no time for Madonna! I see that the Russian Deputy PM Rogozin has described her as a ‘moralising slut’.
Paying the price for interfering with Russian politics, the star was told: ‘Either take off your cross, or put on your knickers.’ The attack on Twitter by deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin came as Madonna vowed to back gay campaigners during her concert last night in St Petersburg where there is a legal ban on promoting homosexuality to young people. Earlier the 53-year-old had offended the Kremlin by demanding the release of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot who face probable jail for an anti-Putin protest in a Moscow cathedral.
Putin is a thug, of course. That’s a given. In this instance, Madonna is in the right and whilst I am not a fan of her music these days, and don’t much care for her lifestyle, I think she spoke out and said the right thing. It is Rogozin who is the whore here, prostituting himself to keep his position of power in Putin’s tyranny.
