IsMadonna calming a commotion?

With her European tour landing back France, the “Girl Gone Wild” singer has seemed to cave to critics in the united kingdom who’ve blasted her for juxtaposing a swastika over video of ultra-right National Front party leader Marine Le Pen during her current MDNA tour.

After the party threatened to file a lawsuit Madonna for that negative connotations associated with linking Le Pen for the Nazi symbol, according to the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper, the Queen of Pop altered the shocking image during Tuesday’s performance in Nice of “Nobody Knows Me,” dropping the swastika and instead projecting a matter mark on Le Pen’s forehead.

Gael Nofri, a National Front spokesman, was pleased with the progres.

“As as I know, Madonna hasn’t changed a video clip,” he told Agence France-Presse. “This is proof that our arguments were valid. This really is excellent news.”

The montage that accompanies the song shows the faces of varied political leaders along with religious insignia, money involved as well as other symbols. In the original edit, the look of Le Pen overlaid having a swastika was accompanied by an image of Adolf Hitler. That enraged party members even though Le Pen’s father, former National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, continues to be found guilty of inciting racial hatred, including minimizing the Holocaust, on numerous occasions.

French newspapers subsequently described Madonna’s decision “appeasement” and “giving in.”

If it had been, it had not been a concession taking into consideration the 54-year-old entertainer may be sticking to her message advocating tolerance in the stage and expressed solidarity with Pussy Riot, the all-female punk band sentenced to 2 years in prison for hooliganism after protesting Russian president Vladimir Putin inside a Russian orthodox church.

Madonna’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, failed to return an email seeking comment.

Nice was the ultimate stop about the hitmaker’s European jaunt (she played Paris three weeks ago with all the video unaltered). Its northern border American leg of Madonna’s MDNA trek commences in Philadelphia on Aug. 28.
