Madonna says she has no place in a country where presenting “non-traditional sexual relationships” is an offence, and the singer says she will not be heading back to Russia anytime soon!
“I won’t appear in Moscow or St Petersburg anymore, because I don’t want to perform in places where being homosexual is tantamount to a crime.”
When Madge performed in St Petersburg in 2012, she gave the fans pink wristbands before her concert and encouraged fans to “show your love and appreciation for the gay community”. Russian Conservative groups filed a £7m lawsuit against Madonna for her pro-LGBT stance, but it was later dismissed by the Russian courts. Even Russia can’t fuck with Madonna’s lawyers!
