Madonna has never been one to bite her tongue, so after the Russian punk band Pussy Riot was convicted of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” on Friday (August 17), she spoke out.
The five-month case came to a head this morning, when a final verdict was made: guilty of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred,” with all three women sentenced to two years in prison starting from their date of arrest in March.
The band name “Pussy Riot” has been splashed all over the news (and the shirts of rock stars), but what exactly is the controversy all about?
When he hasn’t been calling Madonna any four-letter-word he can think of, Sir Elton John has been busy filing libel suits against a London newspaper recently.
So why no Geils? Legal drama.
