(Newser) – If you watched the video of Madonna proudly declaring President Obama a "black Muslim," you may have found yourself wondering whether she was being serious, trying to be funny, or whether she was just high. The answer is none of the above: She was being "ironic," thank you very much, she explained via a statement yesterday. "Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim—though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is," the statement continues, according to Reuters. "And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is—nor should anyone else in America." (Read more Madonna stories.)
