Madonna not getting involved

It's not her fault that the stage for her French gig collapsed, killing two men. And her reaction to the horrible event has done her much honour:

Madonna won hearts in France Sunday as she visited injured survivors and the family of a stage hand who died during an accident which saw her concert date in Marseille cancelled.

The city's mayor paid tribute to the US pop star's "humanity" as she visited the home of 52-year-old French victim Charles Criscenzo's family in nearby Aix-en-Provence before tending to colleagues being treated in hospital.

That was France24 reporting back on Sunday. It's touching. A gentle, caring attempt to do the right thing - to show the workers they were not forgotten, to comfort the bereaved, and to make sure that nothing stands in the way of a full, clear invesigation into the terrible... hang on, what's this?

Oh. Apparently scrub that bit about making sure nothing stands in the way of a full investigation, as Madonna has decided she doesn't really want to take part in the investigation. It is, it seems "impossible" for her to do so.
