Major ControversiesThe Vatican was propelled to speak against her video "Like a Prayer" for portraying blasphemy. 

The Pope urged people to not attend her Madonna’s Blond Ambition World Tour, as she would imitate masturbation on stage in presence of two dancers. Madonna said she is not ashamed of it because it is for open minded people and will make them look differently their own and other people's sexuality.
