Madonna still trying too hard

Madonna used to terrify me. A kid I went to school with claimed to have naked pictures of her, and he said he could show me anytime I wanted to see them. The prospect made me shaky with fearful anticipation.

Of course, that was 22 years ago. And here Madonna is, still trying to shock and titillate the public. At what point does it become officially humiliating? Is this picture from her new tour it?

Yep, I think so.

Predictably, church groups are faithfully following Madonna's script by being offended by this crucifixion silliness.

Religious groups have reacted furiously after Madonna appeared hanging from a cross and wearing a crown of thorns during her latest world tour.

During her performance at the Los Angeles forum, Madonna appeared strapped to a 20 foot high crucifix, prompting outrage from Christian leaders.

A Church of England spokesman said: "Is Madonna prepared to take on everything else that goes with wearing a crown of thorns?

"And why would someone with so much talent seem to feel the need to promote herself by offending so many people?"

David Muir of the Evangelical Alliance told the Evening Standard: "It is downright offensive. Madonna's use of Christian imagery is an abuse and it is dangerous.

Dude, putting yourself on the cross is so three months ago. Remember Kanye? He's the real pop star a-hole savior.

You know what's scary? Madonna in those tight lavender hot pants outfits.

Madge needs to remember she is a grown woman, no matter how fit she is.

Oh come on. Nas crucified himself in a music video six years ago. "Crucifying" yourself isn't shocking any more.
