Madonna was booed and had several concertgoers walk out after she told a New Orleans crowd to vote for President Barack Obama, the Associated Press reported.

“Who’s registered to vote?” Madonna asked during Saturday night’s performance of her “MDNA” tour. “I don’t care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.”

Drawing jeers from the crowd, she added: “Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for … Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote.”

It’s not the first time the Material Girl has brought up the president in concert: She told a Washington, D.C. crowd last month that they “better vote for f–king Obama” and curiously referred to him as a black Muslim. She later said she was “being ironic” on stage.

“Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were?” she said. “The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is—nor should anyone else in America.”
