UNDATED (AP) -- Madonna says it wasn't fans who were angry at her Paris club show -- it was hooligans posing as fans. Madonna performed for 45 minutes at a club in Paris as a thank-you to the people of France. Fans booed and yelled "refund!" Madonna writes on her website as she left the stage, "a few thugs who were not my fans rushed the stage and started throwing plastic bottles pretending to be angry fans." She says press reports have focused on this and "not the joyous aspect of the evening." Her spokeswoman has said Madonna always plays about 45 minutes for this kind of show.
