View Full Version : Madonna makes a killing?
07-11-2001, 07:33 AM
I read that Madonna plans to incorporate a "murder" into her next tour. The idea is that throughout the show, some guy will be bothering her, maybe heckling, taunting. Then, near the end, I suppose, she pulls out a gun and kills him.
I guess she's tired of selling herself through sex and now has decided to try violence. I assume this is called performance art, but what would she be trying to say? That it's okay to kill someone who's bothering you? That being famous can drive a person to kill? I think it's just disgusting. I'm sure many people will want to see the show just for the murder. That's the worst part.

A link to the source would be good so that we can determine if this is reliable information or just a wacky, wild, inflammatory rumor.

I can't find the source. It was a short paragraph in an entertainment news piece yesterday. I searched on Google, found nothing, so maybe it was just a rumor. Sorry. But I'm keeping my ears open.

I did a quick check on Google and found nothing, too; I did, however, find this laughably interesting site claiming that Nostradamus may have predicted that Madonna will be murdered in 2002:
It's awfully long, I only read the first paragraph, but looks like it might be entertaining if you have some time to spare. Hell, this website is bizarre enough that it might even be deserving of it's own thread.

They won't have much luck. The tour's gloriously sold out. Both DC shows sold out in less than an hour, and anyone who wants to see Madonna kill someone will have to pay big bucks. Just do an eBay search for "madonna tickets" and see.

I think it's just a rumour. I've read descriptions of her concert tour so far and there has been no mention of that stage bit. Unless it's supposed to be some grandiose climax at a particular event.
I would suppose that the rumour originated from one of her latest videos that shows a woman (and her grandma?) on a crime spree.

Wait so its a planned killing? Or do you just mean its going to be set up to look like some guy dies? Because spreading rumors like this around doesn't even seem legal.

It may have just been a rumor. I read it along with other entertainment news -- E-Online or something like that. It read like something true, but maybe I was taken in.
But, no, it wouldn't be a real killing. Call it performance art. Madonna has called herself a performance artist. Some obnoxious guy who would seem to be part of the audience or maybe a stagehand would be bugging her all through her show. Then at the end she would shoot him. As someone said, it seems to be along the lines of her latest video where she portrays, in her words, a "nihilistic pissed-off chick."
