According to NBC News:
op star Madonna said on Tuesday she was being deliberately “ironic on stage” when she erroneously referred to President Barack Obama during her concert in the nation’s capital as a “black Muslim.”
“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,” Madonna said.
Responding to a media furor unleashed by the YouTube video, Madonna issued a statement on Tuesday through her spokeswoman saying her reference to Obama’s religion was facetious. “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,” she said.
Yeah, riggghhhhhtttttttt, Madge.
