Madonna tweeted on Monday night, revealing she was fined one million dollars by the Russian Government 8 years ago.

She was fined for ‘supporting the Gay community’.

“I made this speech at a concert in St. Petersburg 8 years ago. I was fined 1 million dollars by The government for supporting the Gay community”.

“I never paid……”



Russia is infamous for it’s conservative views on homosexuality, even to this day, they even have a federal law banning support of ‘ non-traditional’ relationships.

Madonna has always been a gay icon so it must have meant a LOT to her fans to hear her speech that day.
