Madonna: Yeah, Jesus loves me
Madonna has finally decided to defend her "singing from a mock crucifix" stunt from her tour's debut in L.A. this week. The queen of the dance floor climbed onto the 20-foot, mirrored cross to sing "Live to Tell." Several church groups were not amused.
"I don't think Jesus would be mad at me and the message I'm trying to send," she said, according to reports on the web. "Jesus taught that we should love thy neighbor."
(And whenever possible, wear a thorn of crowns to drive the point home, we guess.) Is that what they taught you in Kabbalah classes, Madonna?
We're not sure what the Bible and Jesus teaches about ball-gags, leather corsets and riding crops, but we'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

According to one report, the pop star demanded that 1,000 liters of Kabbalah mountain spring be sent to L.A. before the tour began this week. Her dancers and crew members were required to drink the water because -- per Kabbalah legend -- it has healing powers.
