Madonna Says She Was Being 'Ironic' in Calling Obama a Muslim
Madonna issued a clarification last night to remarks she made on stage in Washington D.C. this week.
Said Madge to a stadium of concertgoers: "Now, it's so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House ... we have a black Muslim in the White House ... it means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man."
"I was being ironic on stage. 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? 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."
