Demure, Penitent Madge Hits Rome
Madge ignored criticism from the Vatican on Sunday night and performed “Live to Tell” in Rome hanging from a giant mirrored cross sporting a crown of thorns. She reportedly even extended an invitation to Pope Benedict, but he was a no show. That was probably for the best, as Madonna included pictures of the Pope spliced in with images of leaders like Italian fascist Benito Mussolini, presumably during the Sorry remix. She also addressed the Middle East conflict by painting a large Star of David and the Muslim star and crescent onto the torsos of her dancers and uniting them in an arm lock. Vatican Cardinal Ersilio Tonino called for Madonna to be ex-communicated from the Catholic Church, something that clearly resonated with Her Madgeness.
