Madonna: “If the Church couldn’t see my work as something positive, that was their problem”

About the cover of the month of February vanity fair (in its editions in Spain, Italy and France) where he recreated “The Last Supper” the American artist Madonna During an interview with that magazine, he recalled the controversy that arose when he released his 1991 documentary film Madonna: Truth or Dare, which recounts his concert tour on the Blonde Ambition Tour.

When the Blonde Ambition Tour arrived at Rome’s Stadio Flaminio, the Vatican tried to stop it for its extensive sexual content, calling the show “a complete disgrace”.

“The first time I felt offended was when I was giving the press conference in Rome during the making of In Bed With Madonna. After all, I was raised Catholic and it was clear to me that if the church can’t see my work as an artist as something positive, then that’s their problem. They had the problem because they didn’t understand that my work as an artist united people, gave them freedom of expression and unity. It was a reflection of the teachings of Jesus and Christianity, so those who attacked me were hypocrites,” Madonna told Vanity Fair.

Commenting on these photos for the magazine, the performer of “La isla bonita,” who admits having been raised Catholic, said that “it seemed interesting to me to turn the tortilla over and fill Jesus with female energy, surrounded by female disciples.”

“The Queen of Pop” prefers as a religion “to cultivate my spiritual practices”.

A few days ago, the 64-year-old singer announced her twelfth world tour, with which she plans to cover 40 cities, the “Celebration Tour”.
