Madonna is ex-whore - Russian deputy PM

Moscow - A Russian deputy prime minister referred to pop icon Madonna as a “former whore” on Twitter after she called for the release of jailed members of punk group Pussy Riot at a Moscow concert.

At her packed concert in a Moscow stadium on Tuesday night, the US Queen of Pop said she dreamt of a world where everyone had the right to express themselves freely.

Stripping to a black bra, she called on the Russian authorities to release the three members of all-girl punk band who are standing trial for performing a song criticising President Vladimir Putin at Moscow's biggest church in February.

“Either take off your cross, or put on your knickers,” the outspoken former NATO envoy added.

Pro-Kremlin and Orthodox activists plan to hold protests ahead of her concert on Thursday in the northwestern city of Saint Petersburg when she is set to criticise a local law banning the provision of information on homosexuality to minors. - Sapa-AFP
