Just when we thought Madonna couldn't get more controversial on her MDNA tour, she proved you wrong once again. She not only put a gun to her head at her London, England concert this week, but she pointed the gun at the audience. She has definitely got people talking, and not in a good way. Not even a month after the Lindsay Lohan photo shoot controversy, where pictures of the star holding a gun to her mouth were put online and then abruptly taken down, the Material Girl herself decided to show once again how risqué she can be. After the Lindsay Lohan debacle, the national suicide hotline Hopeline told E! News, "When a celebrity uses suicide and specifically the means to do it as a joke, it is grossly irresponsible and is a disgrace. It also must be met with an immediate rebuke from the mental-health community. This is no joking matter. Lives are at stake."
As someone who has been in the spotlight for such a long time, one would hope that Madonna would realize what an influence her actions have on the public. Although she is more than entitled to her opinion, such as her political stand against the National Front, actions such as these could pose real danger, and in this case, it may no longer be just "poetic justice". ~Morgan Bates
