“A message of peace is not political”
Following Madonna and Quavo‘s performance of Future at the Eurovision Song Contest final tonight – which ended with dancers brandishing the Palestinian and Israeli flags on their backs as they embraced each other – something that was widely seen as a political statement on the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict – a representative for Madonna said in a note to Entertainment Weekly:
A message of peace is not political.
They also provided EW with the photo of the performance you can see above.
Madonna herself posted this short statement on Instagram in the early morning:
Madame X is a freedom fighter… I am grateful. For the opportunity to spread the message of peace and unity with the world
