Madonna Defends Using Nazi Imagery on Tour

If there’s one thing that can be said about Madonna, she definitely knows how to keep her mug in the news. Best known for breaking boundaries in the late 80’s and early 90’s with ‘Like a Prayer’ and ‘Erotica’, the 50-something performer continues to create a stir in 2012.

On her current MDNA tour, Madonna has flashed her breasts and behind, pointed a gun to her head, and most recently was criticized for incorporating nazi imagery (swastikas and a Hitler moustache) into her set design.

In a recent interview with a Brazilian TV station, Madonna made absolutely no apologies for the Nazi imagery used in her show. According to E! News, she explains that the controversial image supports her message.

"There seems to be a growing intolerance around the world. In Greece, France, everywhere, people are trying to kick out all the immigrants, make people cover up and not show what their religious affiliation is. Think about what's going on in Russia towards the gay community," Madonna said.

"I'm calling attention to that intolerance and asking people to pay attention, to wake up to see how we are just creating more chaos in the world."

"Art is there to track what's going on in the world," she concluded.
