The Second Coming

MADONNA: I'LL NEVER STOP PLAYING MUSIC TO SUIT SOMEONE'S POLITICAL AGENDA

Pop superstar Madonna on Tuesday explained her decision to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel this week, saying that she will always speak up to defend human rights and hopes to see "a new path toward peace."


Madonna will make a guest appearance on Saturday during the Eurovision finals in Tel Aviv. The venue has prompted calls for a boycott by pro-Palestinian activists who want companies, performers and governments to disengage from Israel.

 

"My heart breaks every time I hear about the innocent lives that are lost in this region and the violence that is so often perpetuated to suit the political goals of people who benefit from this ancient conflict. I hope and pray that we will soon break free from this terrible cycle of destruction and create a new path towards peace," she added.

 

Madonna, 60, is expected to perform two songs in Tel Aviv, one from her upcoming "Madame X" album to be released in June. 

 

The singer's Ray of Light foundation, which promotes social justice and women's empowerment worldwide, supports a number of Palestinian projects.

 

They include funding teachers' salaries at schools in the Gaza Strip through the United Nations Palestinian Refugee Agency UNRWA and micro loans to female farmers through the Palestine Fair Trade Association. The foundation also supports Americans for Peace Now, which campaigns for a diplomatic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

I keep seeing articles posting this but she’s posted none of this to social media. So who did she say all of this to? You’d think they’d have an audio or video clip of it but nothing.

He literally says they are still negotiating.

She needs to sign a contract. Just that.

He didn't say "those rumors are fake. she won't be there"

I don't understand how boycotting Israel is supposed to help Palestinians in any way.
