Madonna was in the nation's capital last night for her MDNA Tour, where she delivered an odd endorsement of President Barack Obama, at one point even referring to him incorrectly as a "black Muslim."
"Y'all better vote for f***ing Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing s**t," the 54-year-old told her fans in the packed Verizon Center during a minutes-long speech about the Civil Rights Movement and fighting for freedom. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."
Madonna has showed support for the president in the past. During the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Madonna was performing in New York City, where she unveiled an "OBAMA" tattoo painted across her lower back. The pop singer has been an Obama supporter since 2008.
