Fans still demand Madonna to boycott Eurovision


A number of groups are calling on Madonna to cancel her planned performance at the Eurovision Song Contest because its hosting country, Israel, has an oppressing policy towards the Palestinian community. Madonna announced that she would be performing 2 songs –one famous hit and one brand new track from her upcoming 14th album – at the Eurovision Song Contest final in Tel Aviv on May 18. The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) led calls this week for Madonna to cancel her performance—for which she will reportedly be paid $1 million. They have joined the Jewish Voice for Peace in creating a petition for the queen of pop to hear them and to cancel her performance. Alia Malak of PACBI said that Madonna had previously expressed her love and support to the Palestinian community and wished them peace with no barriers. There have also been calls for Madonna to boycott the event on Twitter where people are using the hashtag #MadonnaDontGo. Some fans even give the diva an ultimatum – either she boycotts Eurovision or they boycott her.
