Madonna — whose Catholic background has always played a role of one kind or another in her music career — said she’d like to have a meeting with Pope Francis and guessed what she might say to the pontiff.
“Let’s talk about Jesus’ point of view about women. Let’s talk about it,” Madonna revealed during a Tuesday episode of Andrew Denton’s Interview, an Australian chat show, the Daily Mail said.
Then the 60-year-old singer said she’d ask the pope, “And don’t you think Jesus would agree that a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body?”
Madonna seemed confident such a Vatican audience could take place in the future, the outlet noted: “One day he might invite me. I think this one might … I think he would be open to having that conversation with me.”
What has Madonna said?
The politically left-wing performer has made her career by saying and doing controversial things. In recent years, Madonna commanded headlines by pulling down a fan’s top and exposing her breast to a concert audience and saying during a Women’s March targeting President Donald Trump that she’s “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
