MELBOURNE, 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.
