The video for her third single from her MDNA album begins with Madonna, 53, being hounded by photographers eager to snap a pic of the superstar as she leaves her hotel. With a handsome chauffeur behind the wheel, the singer goes on a scenic jaunt — collecting men as she goes along. First up is a dancer, who she personally pulls off a corner mid-performance. The duo then heads to a gas station to fill up … and take the model-looking attendant with them … before continuing on their way and picking up street walkers and hitchhikers.
Italy isn't the only European country where Madonna has made a scene lately. France's far-right National Front party plans to sue the singer this week because she includes an image of its leader, Marine Le Pen, with a swastika superimposed on her forehead in a video that plays during her performance of "Nobody Knows Me" in concert. When it flashed onscreen during her show on Saturday at the Stade de France, "there was an audible gasp from the audience," reports AFP. "Projecting such an image of Marine Le Pen with a swastika implies that she is a Nazi," says National Front lawyer Wallerand de Saint-Just.
Le Pen first warned Madonna to remove the offending image from her show last month when she kicked off her tour in Tel Aviv, but clearly she didn't listen. At the time, the politician said, "(When) old singers want to get people to talk about them, it's understandable that they do such extreme things."
