Madonna Arrested In Australia!

imageMELBOURNE, Australia (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau ) – Singer Madonna has been arrested in Melbourne, Australia hours after she pulled down the top of a 17-year-old fan, exposing the latter’s breast.

The incident happened during the singer’s concert during which she invited the girl on stage.

“She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap on the ass. And pull,” Madonna said, as she yanked down the girl’s strapless top to briefly reveal one of her breasts, while the crowd kept on cheering, The Guardian reports.

The weird move was caught on video and has now gone viral. (Because we are a family-oriented site, we chose not to include a link to the video, but you can always Google it!)

“I’m sorry, sexual harassment,” the singer added. “You can do the same to me. Good luck,” she said, pointing to her cinched costume.

Australian authorities told The Adobo Chronicles that no one — not even an international celebrity like Madonna — is above the law.  “Her act constituted a violation of laws against indecent exposure, sexual assault, and violating a minor,” the authorities said. “It was same-sex assault, but an assault nevertheless,” they added.

Madonna’s spokesperson said that the whole thing was an accident, some “wardrobe malfunction which the young girl seemed to enjoy.”

The singer has been released after posting a $1 Million bail, which to her is a mere spare change.

As a result of the incident, Madonna is now forever banned from entering Australia, the second country to impose such restriction.

Madonna is also banned from entering the Philippines, after she disrespected the Philippine flag during her ‘Rebel Heart’ concert tour in Manila last February.

The singer is filing an appeal before the United Nations asking that both Australia and the Philippines rescind the ban against her, citing artistic freedom and freedom of speech.



SEOUL, South Korea (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In the concert stage, there’s always a wardrobe malfunction.  Then there’s a stage malfunction.

It has happened to the most veteran of performers like Madonna or the best trained beauty pageant contestants — taking a fall on stage in front of millions of viewers.

During a performance Saturday in South Korea, one of the members of girlband GFriend took a number of painful looking falls onstage.

Yuju, easily identified by a white knee guard, fell eight times over the course of one song, and another member SinB took a big spill in the middle of the stage.

To the girls’ credit, they managed to pick themselves up after each tumble and rejoin the others on cue pretty seamlessly.

The girlband is reportedly considering filing a lawsuit for the stage debacle.  However, it wasn’t clear whether it will be filing a lawsuit against the concert promoter for the stage malfunction, or the shoe manufacturer for wardrobe malfunction.

Stay tuned!


imageHONG KONG  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Grammy award-winning singer Chris Brown was finally  allowed to leave the Philippines after a three-day delay due to a fraud complaint against him for a cancelled concert last New Year’s Eve. Brown was in Manila Tuesday for a sold-out concert .

The 26-year-old R&B artist had been stuck in Manila after running afoul of a corporation, run by an influential religious group, Iglesia Ni Cristo,  that filed a fraud complaint against him for a cancelled New Year’s Eve gig. He and his Canadian promoter were paid a $1 Million advance for the New Year’s Eve concert.

The delay meant he missed a performance in Hong Kong that was scheduled for Wednesday evening.

But when it rains, it pours.

When Brown arrived in Hong Kong Friday, he was not allowed by authorities to disembark from his chartered plane and was asked to leave immediately. Chinese immigration and customs officials barred the American singer from entry because of the missed concert Wednesday night.

Many fans were terribly upset that the Hong Kong gig was cancelled. Although concert ticket purchasers were given refunds, they still complained that the cancellation caused them great irreparable emotional distress. Many took a leave of absence from their day and night jobs just to be able to attend Brown’s concert.

As of this writing, it wasn’t clear whether or not Brown’s plane has left Hong Kong, and if it has, where it was headed.
