Madonna has reached out to Pope Francis nearly two decades after the Vatican condemned her “blasphemous” behavior, Page Six reported.
The singer—born Madonna Louise Ciccone—said she’d like a second chance to make things right, vowing she’s nothing less than “a good Catholic.”
“Hello @Pontifex Francis—I’m a good Catholic. I Swear! I mean I don’t Swear,” Madonna tweeted at the pope. “It’s been a few decades since my last confession. Would it be possible to meet up one day to discuss some important matters?”
The star added, “I’ve been ex communicated 3 times. It doesn’t seem fair.”
The pope has yet to respond to Madonna.
The pop star was famously slammed by the Catholic Church following her controversial 2006 performance in Rome in which she was “crucified” on stage as part of the act.
Speaking at the time, the late Cardinal Ersilio Tonini spoke with the approval of Pope Benedict XVI, saying that the “Queen of Pop” took it “too far,” slamming the performance as “blasphemous.”
