Madonna Got Called Some Mean Names in French Last Night

And surprisingly, it had nothing to do with her ongoing swastika-French-politician scandal. Instead, Madonna got booed the old-fashioned way — for cutting off a fan-club-only concert after 45 minutes onstage. The devoted audience was having none of this and started chanting for a refund; then the mood got uglier, and they started yelling "salope," the French word for slut (video evidence below). Vulture does not have any formal diplomatic or conflict-resolution training, but still, a gentle suggestion for Madonna: Maybe avoid France for a while? Seems easier than getting into fights all the time.
