Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie has labelled Madonna a "prostitute" who will "do anything for money" in a new interview.
The band's new singles collection 'Maximum Rock 'N' Roll' is out now, with Primal Scream set to play All Points East in London on May 25th.
Speaking to Kirsty Wark on Newsnight, the conversation began with Bobby musing on the art of the single, and his youth in Glasgow.
Asked about Madonna's recent decision to play Eurovision in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, the conversation took on another tone.
Calling the Queen Of Pop a “total prostitute” he then said “Primal Scream would never perform in Israel".
The singer added: “I think the whole thing is set up to normalise the State of Israel and its disgraceful treatment of the Palestinian people. By going to perform in Israel I think what you do is you normalise that".
