Say what you will about Madonna and her new album, but the lady knows who her fans are.
Preparing for an upcoming world tour, the "I Fucked Up" singer posted on her Facebook page that she would address Russia's laws against spreading "homosexual propaganda" when she hits St. Petersburg, home town of creepy Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin.
"I will come to St Petersburg to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels oppressed. " Madonna, who is more or less the walking embodiment of "homosexual propaganda," wrote.
The Russian law, which carried a $17,000 penalty, bans activities that "damage the health, moral and spiritual development of the underaged," something Madonna--who has a taste for younger men--can certainly relate to.
"I'm a freedom fighter," Madge wrote on the page. "My show, my songs, my work, my art is all about freedom of expression, freedom to choose, to speak, to act always with humanity and compassion.
"I don't run away from adversity," she continued, "I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity."
