Madonna Says She Will Never Ever Perform in Russia Again Because of their Anti-Gay Laws



-Madonna has a huge fan base in Russia but she says she won't ever perform there due to their homophobic laws:
"I won't appear in Moscow or St Petersburg anymore, because I don't want to perform in places where being homosexual is tantamount to a crime."
-Madonna was sued in 2012 for £7 million for giving pro-gay speeches during her Russian shows.
-Cher and Blondie's Debbie Harry both also revealed that they turned down the opportunity to perform at last year's Winter Olympics in Sochi as a result of the anti-gay laws.
-The Rebel Heart Tour customs/looks will be designed by Prada, Miu Miu, Swarovski, Gucci's Alessandro Michele, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and Italian rising star Fauso Puglisi.
