Tough story to ignore this week, it’s one that’s making noise across the religious blogosphere.
Lady Gaga’s exceptionally long music video (which apparently people still make) “Alejandro” uses a lot of religious imagery – including Gaga dressed up as a sexy nun in a shiny red and white habit and eating a rosary.
Another pop star, Katy Perry, had this to say on her Twitter account:
Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.
When Katy Perry, whose big hit is “I Kissed a Girl,” tweets that your music video is crossing the line into blasphemy, you may be in trouble.
Perry told a French radio station over the weekend she is a big Gaga fan, but:
I think sometime spirituality and sexuality are separate things, and when you put them together it gets interesting for some people.
