France's far-right National Front party is threatening to sue Madonna because she had images of party leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika, the symbol of the Nazi movement, superimposed on her forehead at a recent concert in Paris.
The picture was seen during a video montage that also combined footage of Madonna's face merging with images resembling Adolf Hitler, Pope Benedict XVI, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, President Hu Jintao of China and Republican leader Sarah Palin. Religious symbols and video from anti-gay rallies were also seen.
Several of Madonna's costumes from her upcoming "MDNA" tour have been revealed and they might be racier than ever.
