Madonna is out with her first album in four years, which means it’s time for her to wear something ridiculous, like a sequined eye patch, and say outrageous things for publicity, like that Jesus would agree with abortion.
The singer went on Australian Andrew Denton’s Interview, to promote the release of her new album Madame X, which came out on June 14, and the subject of religion and the Catholic Church came up several times in Tuesday night’s broadcast (audio here).
Denton made a joke about the Material Girl having a drink with the Pope and Madonna said, “One day he might invite me. I think this one might,” because the media and celebrities like to think Pope Francis is a lot more liberal than he actually is.
The sexagenarian (I’m surprised the sex-obsessed diva isn’t using this word herself) mused about what she would like to talk about with the Pope if given the opportunity and she came up with abortion.
Raised Catholic, Madonna claimed in 2015 during her last album promo tour, “I’ve been ex-communicated by the Catholic Church a few times. But I also feel like this new pope is kind of groovy, and I think we might be able to get together and have a chat about sex.” The Pope might be willing to have a conversation, as he has discussions with all kinds of people of all kinds of beliefs, but there’s no way he would agree with her.
Continuing with the blasphemy theme, in another segment with Denton, Madonna managed to turn the crucifix into something sexual and pagan.
