(Newser) – It's always fun when aging musicians get political, and Madonna was no exception last night. She went on an extended rant about civil rights and other matters at her Washington, DC, concert, ending with praise for President Obama. That's when things got a little weird: "Y'all better vote for f***ing Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House," she said. "Now that's some amazing s***. It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit." The Huffington Post notes that at another concert earlier this month, the Material Girl unveiled a back tattoo—HuffPo assumes it was fake—of Obama's name. (Read more Madonna stories.)
