  1. Say what they will, but, this is one of Madonna's greatest videos artistically, musically, and, what's more, it made people think and, imo, it didn't mean Madonna was satanic and/or didn't have morals, etc. It also didn't mean she or her music should be banned or boycotted. I feel the same to this day (and we can still learn from it now again) on anyone trying to ban music, books, or shut people and their opinion up no matter what their thoughts, creed, religion, or color etc are.. ‘Madonna told me she wanted to f*** a Black guy on the altar,’ claims Like a Prayer director The 1989 music video was banned by the Vatican The director of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” music video, Mary Lambert, has revealed how the controversial release came to be made. Madonna’s 1989 video featured the singer dancing in front of burning crosses, experiencing stigmata (the appearance of wounds in locations corresponding to the crucifixion of Jesus) and kissing a statue of a Black Jesus who comes to life in a church. The video was banned by the Vatican, with Italian Roman Catholic historian Roberto de Mattei saying at the time: “The video is a blasphemy and insult because it shows immorals inside a church.” Pope John Paul II also encouraged fans to boycott Madonna in Italy and not attend her Blond Ambition tour. Reflecting on the video, Lambert told The Hollywood Reporter: “I wanted to explore the correlation between sexual ecstasy and religious ecstasy.” She added that the Black Jesus character “came from Madonna telling me she wanted to ‘f*** a Black guy on the altar’”. To which Lambert recalls replying: “Well, why not have it be a Black Jesus? Let’s just go all the way.” Lambert said the burning crosses evoked “the idea of appropriation, that the Ku Klux Klan could take a cross, which is a holy symbol to a lot of people, and appropriate it in a way to instill fear and horror and promote race hatred”. She added: “I wanted to turn that on its head.” Despite the controversy, “Like a Prayer” went on to be nominated for MTV Video Music Awards’ Video of the Year and has since been viewed over 163 million times on YouTube.

  11. Anyone else really sad that she left Portugal? I know it's been awhile since she left but I always liked that she moved there. I feel like it's great for her to get away from the US culture and out of the usual trendy group of people she hangs out with now. And we objectively got her best album since 2005 when she left the US. I just hope this move back home doesn't drop her artistic quality back to the 2008-2015 days

  23. For me it was an instant crush and I remember quite a few of my teen friends enjoying it. As I have said before, it's the type of song that has an identity already by the third second and I approve of the somewhat dated sound as it had to be reflective of her past. Why necessarily have a fresh sounding song on a GH album? It would make the others sound older. Also, if there is one video that must go HD next, it's definitely Celebration.

  28. This is an error on Amazon. You'll notice a ton of CDs at the price when they are in marketplace (as this CD is). There's nothing special about this. It's just sellers not doing their due diligence and not maintaining their amazon portal. In a previous job we had an Amazon store and I had to check prices regularly as this kinda crap happened all the time.

  29. Celebration came out during a time when visuals and elaborate music videos were making a comeback. And the video is perfectly bland and forgettable. Also the production is just not what people were into and doesn’t feel fresh for the time. If Madonna still had her great instincts she would have collaborated with the newcomer Lady Gaga or Sia for a new song. And if she wanted that DJ edge she could have done a collaboration song with David Guetta which was THE DJ at the time, churning hits for various artists. As en example listen to Duck Sauce’s Barbra Streisand (that came out in 2010). If Celebration sounded like that it would have been huge.

  38. I don't hate the song, but I don't love it either. To me it might as well've been a filler track, but I can tolerate it every now and then. I vaguely remember a bunch of people on another Madonna site a decade ago thinking that the song would smash in the US when it first came out, but to me it was obvious that it wouldn't be well-received in the US even during the electro-pop era because quite frankly, Oakenfold's production was dated even back then. But at least the song was big in Europe...

  45. It's been almost a year since Madonna.com uploaded a post about a new official Madonna app. It says that we should: What do you think happened? This is one of the things that I don't like about her team, things are moving so slowly and there's barely any news ever.

    New Madonna App?

    This is nothing compared to the publicity Lady Gaga had for her ARTPOP album. That was truly disastrous
