France Thinks Madonna Is a 'Salope' (Slut)

MadonnaA lot of times when you bring a form of entertainment from one country to another, the appeal just gets lost in translation. This can happen with anything: Japanese game shows, Scandanavian dramas, and even Madonna. The pop idol recently took her MDNA tour to France, performing a concert at l’Olympia concert hall in Paris. Despite the fact that the stadium was filled exclusively with members of Madonna's fan club — individuals who The Hollywood Reporter reveals camped out overnight on the sidewalks to fill the 2,700-seat venue — the singer's performance was not exactly met with appreciation.

Madonna began the show at approximately 10:15 PM, and only performed for a surprisingly brief forty-five minutes. After concluding the show, Madonna faced an onslaught of boos and insults from the infuriated crowd; Fans called her a "salope" (the French word for "slut"), and chanted, "Remboursez!" (which literally translates to "Repay us!").

The crowd took to Twitter to continue its rage. THR has translated three French tweets from attenders of the concert:"280€ for a seat + 10 minutes of a speech + 40 minutes of a show + 2 days of camping in front of the #Olympa = #Madonna #MDNA #Paris #thatsucks."

"#Madonna 45min/250€ vs @springsteen 3h40/65€ ... what’s the better deal, there’s nothing left to say! #MDNAOlympia"

"How much does it cost to see Madonna at l’Olympia? It’s 6.3 euros per minute!"In addition to being admonished for cutting her show short, Madonna has also received recent heat for flashing and mooning her audiences in Istanbul and Rome, respectively, and even more recently for depicting French politician Marine La Pen branded with a swastika during a recent concert in Tel Aviv, Israel. Not really earning a lot of points with France, Madonna...
