Madonna will be sued by France’s National Party for featuring an image of the party’s leader, Marine Le Pen, with a swastika over her face in a video projected during Madonna’s MDNA tour. Le Pen already had threatened to sue if the pop icon used the image during performances in France, which is what Madonna did at a concert Saturday night. (The image appears for a second or two during the montage.) A spokesman for Le Pen tells Rolling Stone that a public insult lawsuit will be filed in Paris in a few days. (Vulture; Rolling Stone)
