Madonna On Obama: "He Is A Black Muslim In The White House"

Madonna caused quite a stir on Monday night in Washington D.C. when she called President Obama a "black Muslim" while urging fans to vote for him in November.

"Y'all better vote for f--king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing s--t," Madonna quoted as saying. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."

Obama is, of course, Christian, not Muslim. On Tuesday, Madonna clarified her statements through her rep.

"I was being ironic on stage," the Queen of Pop claimed. "Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim - though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. 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."

It has to be noted that Madonna has supported Obama before, though her previous backings didn't call for any day-after clarifications.

In September, while Obama was speaking at the Democratic National Convention, Madonna, 54, showed off an Obama tattoo on her lower back during a concert in New York. 

In 2008, Madonna sold t-shirts with Obama's face drawn in in multiple colors. The caption underneath read "Express Yourself," the title of one of Madonna's famous hits.

What do you think of Madonna's statement about Obama?
