Madonna to be fined and sued for learning Russian dirty word

Deputies of the St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly addressed to Governor Valentina Matviyenko with a request to sue US pop star Madonna for using a Russian dirty word in a radio jingle to advertise the singer’s forthcoming show in the city, The Rossiiskaya Gazeta wrote.

In the jingle, Madonna used the word ‘Ohuenna!’ – an exclamation which can be translated into English as “This is f****** great!” The jingle leaked on the Russian Internet: “Ohuenna! This is Madonna. Hello! This is Madonna. And I hope to see you on August 2nd on Palace square Saint-Petersburg. Don’t miss it!" the singer said.

The organizers of Madonna’s show in St. Petersburg stated that the jingle leaked online incidentally. Russian radio stations will use the edited version, from which the first word will be cut.

The word, which Madonna used, is an expression of joy, happiness, surprise and many other positive emotions. It is widely used across the nation by literally every single person.

St. Petersburg parliamentarians believe that Madonna’s message caused damage to the business reputation of Russia’s renowned city. In addition, the deputies claim that the organizers of the show, PMI Corporation, must wire a part of the profit received from Madonna’s concert in the city to the budget of St. Petersburg .

The deputies particularly said that the organizers must pay for the use of the state property – the city’s iconic Palace Square, where the show will take place.

Official spokespeople for PMI Corporation said that they would wire the funds to the city budget in the form of taxes.

Madonna will play in Russia on August 2. The Russian stop of her highly acclaimed Sticky and Sweet Tour will take place on St. Petersburg’s Palace Square. It will be Madonna’s second concert in Russia. She visited the country for the first time in 2006 when her Confessions Tour stopped at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
