Madonna drew some jeers from her crowd in New Orleans on Saturday night after she told audience members to vote for President Obama, the Associated Press reports.

“Who’s registered to vote?” she said, adding, “I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama.”

The comment was followed by boos and some walk outs from the audience. Madonna followed her previous statement by saying, “Seriously, I don't care who you vote for. ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote.”
