Earth to Esther: 'Get Over Yourself! You're Madonna!'


Let she who is without sin...

Denouncing Sin? Who Is That Girl?

from New York Daily News

In her new movie, I'm Going to Tell You a Secret, the many-mansioned Madonna attacks the material world.

Once, she told papa not to preach. But now, at 47, Madonna has come down from the mount with a message for you sinners.

People "are going to go to hell, if they don't turn from their wicked behavior," the singer proclaims in her new film, I'm Going to Tell You a Secret.

Despite her many homes, the former Material Girl says she has renounced "the material world. The physical world. The world of illusion, that we think is real. We live for it, we're enslaved by it. And it will ultimately be our undoing."

Reading from Scripture at one point in the film, the mother of two — who won't let her children watch TV or eat ice cream — says, "I refer to an entity called 'The Beast.' I feel I am describing the world that we live in right now."

All this seems to have come from her embracing the mystical Jewish teachings of the Kaballah. But it might seem strange to those who remember that the Catholic girl, confirmed as Madonna Louise Ciccone, used to go out of her way to shred the envelope with nose-cone bras and three-way Sex shots.

Catholic League President William Donohue likes Madonna's new morality: "For her to have this sudden wakeup call — that the kind of behavior for which she is infamous is not salutary for young people — is refreshing."

But he doesn't like her proclamation, also made in the documentary about her 2004 Re-Invention tour, that "most priests are gay." Donohue adds, "We're glad to see she is no longer with us. Jews will have to make up their own mind about whether they're going to welcome her. Lots of them don't want to."
