Madonna has sent out a prayer to the Pope.
On Wednesday, May 4, the pop icon, 63, took to social media to make a personal plea to sit down with Pope Francis years after the Vatican condemned her “blasphemous” behavior.
“Hello @Pontifex Francis —I’m a good Catholic. I Swear! I mean I don’t Swear,” Madonna wrote in a tweet. “It’s been a few decades since my last confession. Would it be possible to meet up one day to discuss some important matters? I’ve been ex communicated 3 times. It doesn’t seem fair.”
During a 2006 show in Rome, the "Material Girl" vocalist was “crucified” on stage as part of the performance. Late Cardinal Ersilio Tonini spoke with the approval of Pope Benedict XVI, labeling Madonna as “blasphemous" and stating she took it “too far" with the act.
“To crucify herself during the concert in the city of popes and martyrs is an act of open hostility. It is nothing short of a scandal and an attempt to generate publicity,” the religious figure stated via Standard. “The time will come when this woman will realize that Christ died on the cross for her as well, that he spilt his blood for her. I feel pity for her.”
The superstar has said many times she was raised catholic and has evoked the religion in her music and stage performances.
The actress is nothing less of a provocateur, which will not doubt come into play in her newly single lifestyle. As OK! previously reported, Madonna and her much younger boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams recently called it quits after three years together.
The Evita actress and the 28-year-old dancer "are still on good terms and there are no hard feelings but they are at different places with their lives," a source dished.
"With them both working on other things, it was hard to keep their romance alight," the insider continued. “Madonna has thrown herself into a busy social life and has been seeing her friends and family after the split. She has a packed schedule, working on her upcoming biopic, new music and looking after her family."
