“This is just the media trying to make a story where there isn’t one. There are always issues that people want to blame Madonna about. This is Madonna expressing herself on stage as an artist. It is ridiculous to find a connection with the tragedy that happened in Colorado and this show. Madonna, like the rest of the world, was horrified and felt terrible about the shooting. But you can’t take violent art off the walls of a museum and you can’t remove the third act of Hamlet. This is art. Madonna does not make things pretty and tie them up with a bow.”
