Singer says predicament of Native Americans constructs her ashamed to be an American at benefit performance and auction
Madonna has repeatedly criticised
Donald Trump and said she is ashamed to be an American, in a performance and auction in Miami that raised more than $7.5 m( 5.9 m) for her Malawi foundation.
Images of the president-elect appeared behind her as she sang the line You know that youre toxic from her cover-up of the Britney Spears hit.
The singer also uncovered she had once been in Trumps bed for a publication photoshoot when the tycoon was not at home. She took a shot at his cheap sheets, telling: They wont be Egyptian cotton since we all know how he feels about Muslims, dont we?
Madonna encompasses Toxic
Madonna also spoke about the plight of
Native Americans and asked why their land was being destroyed. It just really constructs me feel ashamed ashamed to be an American, ashamed to be a human being, really, she said before performing her 2003 hit American Life.
The benefit show, billed as an evening of music, arts and mischief, watched Madonna resuscitate her cabaret reveal, Tears of a Clown,
first performed in Australia earlier this year.
It was one of the many parties held during
Art Basel Miami Beach, the biggest art carnival in Northern america, which attracts super-rich art collectors and celebrities from across the world. Guests, who paid at least $5,000 to attend, included Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, former boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, Courtney Love and James Corden.
Before her hour-long performance,
Madonna auctioned pieces from her personal art collecting, including a Tracey Emin print that sold for $550,000 and three Herb Ritts photographs from her 1985 wedding to Sean Penn that fetched $230,000.
Other lots included a Damien Hirst painting, a private performance by the magician David Blaine, who also attended, and a week-long stay at DiCaprios home in Palm Springs that went for $140,000.
Penn bid on several items when the auction stalled. At one point, Madonna strolled into the audience, climbed on tables and gave one man a lap dance. She abruptly stood up at another point, grabbed the chair on which she had performed and said she also wanted to auction it , noting $600 could send a girl in Malawi to secondary school. The chair sold for $10,000.
Madonna adopted her 11 -year-old son, David, from an orphanage in Malawi more than ten years ago. At the time, she said she didnt know where Malawi was. David had pneumonia and malaria. His mother died in childbirth and his siblings were also dead.
He was at the event to introduce the singer, telling the audience: I realise Im one of the lucky ones.
Madonna indicated videos of Malawi, asking for help to build a paediatric surgery and intensive care unit at a hospital there. Half the population are under the age of 15, according to the commission foundation,
As well as political statements and corny buffoon gags, Madonna lamented the fact she was very single and had not had sex for some time.
