Washington: Madonna was booed and pelted with bottles by fans during her concert in France on Thursday, when she ended her set after just 45 minutes.

The 53-year-old singer put on an intimate show for around 2,000 fans at the Paris Olympia venue as a last minute addition to her MDNA tour.

The concert was streamed on the internet and ran for around 45 minutes - a shorter set than her usual arena gigs - and she even watered down the controversy – as there was no breast flash during her performance of Human Nature, as there has been at other gigs, Contactmusic reported.

But she still brandished a pistol during her final song of the set, Beautiful Killer, despite pleas for her to put her guns away in the wake of last week`s cinema massacre in Colorado.

There was also a message of love, literally, as the Material Girl stepped offstage at the Olympia - a curtain featuring the words ``Je t`aime`` (I love you) closed behind her.

However, the audience did not return her love and rather began booing and jeering the star and chanting for her to continue the show. When Madonna did not reappear, footage from the venue shows gig-goers hurling bottles at the stage.

The chanting and booing continued even as the audience left the building.
