Pop diva Madonna relished in the wild cheers of 20,000 fans in Boston, never mentioning directly her pending divorce but urging Americans to vote for Democrat Barack Obama.
Before Madonna sang Miles Away, which she had earlier said inspired by Ritchie, she told the audience: 'This song is for the emotionally retarded. Maybe you know some people who fall into that category. God knows I do.'
"Hello Boston!" the 50-year-old called to out to the hordes of young and some not so young fans at the concert who ventured out to see her perform hits from Borderline to Beat Goes On on her Sticky and Sweet World Tour.
In signature style, Madonna pranced across the stage, dancing, playing the electric guitar and flirting with her singers for nearly two-and-a-half hours, clearly loving every minute and basking in the adulation.
"Madge we love you!" cried Stacey Carney (24) who was unfazed by the singer's silence on her marital turmoil, after a Madonna spokeswoman yesterday announced the pop star and husband Guy Ritchie (40) were to divorce.
"Isn't she amazing? I don't care what she does, I love her, that's all."
Madonna and Ritchie were married for seven-and-a-half years, and together have a son Rocco (3) an adopted son David in addition to Madonna's daughter Lourdes from a previous relationship.
