'Turn Up The Radio' hitmaker Madonna has blamed "a few thugs" for giving people the wrong idea about her intimate 'gig' at the Olympia in Paris last week.

Reports claimed that the show ended in a chorus of boos and insults after Madonna left the stage having played for 45 minutes, but in a statement released on her official website, Madonna reckons everything was totally fine.

"Playing the Olympia was a magical moment for me and it was real treat to do this special show for my fans and be so close to them," it starts. "Unfortunately at the end of the show — after I left the stage — a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pre­tend­ing to be angry fans. The press reports have focused on this and not the joyous aspect of the evening."

Without really going into why some fans would pretend to be angry just for the sake of it, she then added: "But nothing can take away or ruin this very special evening for me and my fans. When I looked out in the audience, everyone I saw had a smile on their face. I look forward to having this wonderful exper­i­ence again."

In other Madonna 'gig' news, Britney's looking forward to catching the show this October, so that's nice.
