Madonna was booed when she ended her set at a small Paris concert after just 45 minutes on stage.

There were also cries of "Refund!" when the Queen of Pop wrapped up the show on Thursday.

The concert, billed as an intimate event at Paris' Olympia club, was streamed live on YouTube.

By Friday morning, the channel that showed the event disabled comments and had more than 12,000 dislikes compared with 10,000 likes.

An invitation to tweet about the show appeared to backfire - audience members used the suggested hashtag (hash)MDNAParis to complain.

The rebroadcast of the show cuts off when Madonna leaves the stage, apparently before the crowd realised the concert was over.

The show was announced after France's far-right National Front threatened to sue Madonna after the singer showed a video at a Bastille Day concert in Paris with an image of the party's leader, Marine Le Pen, with a swastika on her forehead.

"I've heard that a certain Marine Le Pen was upset with me," Madonna told the crowd, according to the newspaper Le Parisien. "It's not my intention to make enemies."
