Madonna faces backlash after short Paris show

Madonna was on the receiving end of an angry backlash from her fans on Friday for ending a Paris concert after just 45 minutes.

With the Internet awash with criticism of the US pop queen, tweets posted by disappointed fans included: "Madonna branded a slut and booed in Paris," and "Only 45 minutes for 200 euros a ticket."

The angry reaction was in sharp contrast to the enthusiastic cheers which greeted Madonna when she exited the stage at the Olympia theatre after barely three quarters of an hour on Thursday evening.

The 2,700-strong audience remained in place, expecting an encore, and the mood turned sour as it became clear that the 53-year-old diva was not coming back.

Videos posted on YouTube showed angry fans shouting "refund".

"Not even 10 songs, no thank you and no goodbye," one spectator told AFP. "We came up from Montpellier (in the south of France) and paid 180 euros a ticket. It's a bit steep."

The Olympia concert was Madonna's second controversial appearance in the French capital this year.

Last month she appeared at the Stade de France and angered the far-right National Front by projecting an image of party leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika superimposed on her forehead.

The National Front has said it will sue the American over the incident.
