”A man can tell a thousand lies…”
Not surprising at all.
That’s the one and only comment we should report about the way the italian gossip magazine press has chosen to deal with the supposed “Crucifix Controversy” at Madonna’s Confessions Tour.
The italian media started shouting “scandal” and “blasphemy” way before the tour started – with no chance at all to see her Live To Tell performance, and keeps straight on what it seems an already-planned path by requesting comments and opinions to members of the catholic church.
Who, honestly, are the first who should be embarassed for the way their own words are currently being manipulated – like in the following four page spread on this week’s edition of gossip magazine “DiPiù“.
Cardinal Tonini has been asked to comment about the show, and without attending the concert, he shares his views and thoughts with jounalist Metello Venè carefully instructing him and pointing out anything that can be used to raise brows and controversy (“the concert takes place in a former stadium where usually people performs Gospel” “Oh, I’m speechless” – “I hope she won’t do this unfortunate performance in Rome as well”) – no matter if there is no way for the crucifix to be “encrusted with Swarosky” and being “5 million euro worth” as they insist in every single report.
Or maybe the pics they showed Cardinal Tonini to comment were not the ones you see in the artilce below…
