Madonna Is Getting Sued by Russian Activists

Though some of her MDNA tour demonstrations have been distracting (at best), it is harder to fault Madonna’s efforts in Russia, where she gave an earnest speech in support of Pussy Riot and then protested St. Peterburg’s gay pride ban at her concert on August 9. This second act has gotten her in trouble with a Russian activist group, which is suing Madonna for $10.5 million on the grounds of "moral damage." The timing here is probably not a coincidence
