Madonna isn’t stupid. That’s what she’s saying after provocative comments she made at a concert Monday night in Washington, D.C., led some to wonder whether the pop supernova thought the president was Muslim. “Y’all better vote for [expletive] Obama, OK?” she shouted at fans in the audience. “For better or worse, all right, we have a black Muslim in the White House, OK?” In a statement Wednesday, Madge clarified that she “was being ironic on stage”: “Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim—though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is.”
