From Material to Ironic: Madonna Backpedals on Obama 'Black Muslim' Line
Turns out Alanis Morissette isn’t the only pop singer who traffics in irony.
The Material Girl herself is backpedaling on her comments about President Barack Obama being a “black Muslim,” part of a profanity-laced show of support for the beleaguered leader.
“I was being ironic on stage,” the singer said in a statement via Perez Hilton. “Yes I know Obama is not a Muslim (though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is.)”
“And what if he were?” Madonna, who’s a supporter of the president, added. “The point I was making is that a good man is a good man no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is – nor should anyone else in America.”
Wonder if she feels the same about the Mormon faith?
