Madonna don't preach

Irony-challenged Madonna is prepping to lecture the world on the dangers of materialism, i.e. modern life aka "the Beast." Unveiling her latest documentary "I'm going to Tell You a Secret," the singer offered up this piece of spiritual insight, "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."

Sadly, onlookers were too distracted by the startling discovery of a diamond mine on her head to pay much notice -- proving once again that Hollywood dress codes can be the undoing of even the greatest messiah.

Yet for all of Esther's Kabbalah talk, turns out her inner Catholic is still alive and well -- well enough to let people that they "are going to go to hell, if they don't turn from their wicked behavior." If that bit of religious "sampling" wasn't confusing enough, her latest video also offers up this nugget of information: "Most priests are gay."

Madonna, always pushing the boundaries of basic common sense.

Then again, mandatory hazing of celebrities aside, I'll take Madonna over a Britney "I always listen to my president" Spears any day. [Thanks to Jeff Renshaw for the LINK]

P.S.: I've noticed that there's always someone in the comments section -- be it in the blogs or the stories -- who is "shocked, shocked, shocked" whenever there is any talk of celebrity gossip on AlterNet. Here's a little secret: after years of rigorous training, the highly evolved brains of the AlterNet staff can now hold thoughts both about the excesses of the Bush administration and Angelina Jolie's sex life at the same time.
