Madonna disapproved of by supporters of Silvio Berlusconi for comments she made against him

The Material Girl said that Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi “screwed the entire country.”

In an interview with Oggi magazine last week, the singer is asked what she thinks of Berlusconi, who is due to go on trial later this month after being accused of having sex with an underage prostitute.

Present at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of her film WE, the pop star told the Italian weekly Oggi: “What do I think about Berlusconi? I wouldn’t like to talk about it now. But The Economist already said everything, didn’t it?”

On the first page of its June 9 edition, The Economist presented a picture of Silvio Berlusconi under the title “The man who screwed an entire country,” marking the fourth time in ten years the newspaper criticizes of the Italian Prime Minister.

Secretary of State Daniela Santanche criticized Madonna for her comments.

“Madonna has offended millions of compatriots. Madonna is thus opposed to the democratic choice of millions of Italians who voted for this government,” the politician said.

“I’m sorry that Madonna uses these words against Italy . Because her roots are Italian, her name is Ciccone. I hope at this point that the Italians think of her in the way she thinks of them and that, therefore, she’ll be left to watch her movie on her own,” in reference to her recent film WE which she directed.

Italian politician and member of the Parliament Carlo Giovannardi also reacted to Madonna’s comments: “Mrs. Ciccone is in favor of homosexual families. Therefore, she is on a position that is against our culture and our Constitution which doesn’t support the establishment of gay families.”

“Mrs. Ciccone quotes The Economist, a magazine from a country that has recently experienced strong social changes,” Giovannardi said.

“I’m very disappointed that Madonna has taken up the theories of The Economist. It’s obvious she has a communist press officer who told her what to say so that she will be quoted by Communist newspapers. Obviously, she doesn’t know anything about Italy,” replied Gabriella Carlucci, from Berlusconi’s camp.
