David Bowie SPARKS Controversy With God Vs Devil Music Video For The Next Day! Watch HERE!

david bowie controversial music video

David Bowie is causing quite the ruckus now that he’s back in the music scene.

His new video for The Next Day, starring Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard, violently tackles both religion and devil worship, and it’s bound to catch people’s — and the Vatican’s — attention!

Including over-sexed clergymen, self-flagellation, Marion’s sudden development of stigmata, and a bit of nudity, The Next Day is definitely graphic and not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned. We can hear the criticism pouring in already!

Ch-ch-check out the video and see for yourselves if you so dare …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The Vatican's Lawyers Go After Benetton Over Kissing Pope Ad

Filed under: Legal MattersAd Campaigns

Well that certainly didn't take long!

The Vatican is raising hell over Benetton's new UNHATE Foundation campaign, specifically the ad that shows Pope Benedict kissing Imam Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb.

On Thursday the Vatican released a statement saying their lawyers in Italy and around the world will "take the proper legal measures" to stop the distribution of the unauthorized photo, even in the media.

The statement adds:

"This is a grave lack of respect for the pope, an offense against the sentiments of the faithful and a clear example of how advertising can violate elementary rules of respect for people in order to attract attention through provocation."

Benetton has since removed the ad from their website and issued their own statement and apologized to those who were offended.

Thoughts???

The Vatican Forgives Abortion For Six Days

Everyone knows abortion is a major no-no in the Catholic Church.

If you get one, you are thereby excommunicated from the Church and looked down upon like the little heathen you are.

Introducing…The iPope! Vatican Gets A Twitter!

Oh man, we wonder what this will mean!

Will all prayers now be in 140 characters or less?! LOLz!

Pope Benedict XVI made history today by not only getting an iPad at age 84, but by using it today to launch the Vatican's new website, News.va, and to TWEET for the first time!

The message read:

"Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI"

Check out a video from the big event (above)!

Glad to see the church is getting internet-savvy!

Here's hoping that they can get a little more savvy about their stance on gay rights!

Hey! Just saying!

Which means the rest of her Jersey Shore cohorts can't be too far behind!

This afternoon, JWOWW took to her Twitter to wish her followers farewell as she would be boarding a jet plane to be whisked off to the motherland of Italy to film the fourth season of The Jersey Shore. She tweeted out:

"Off to italy! Be back on twitter soon! Love u all n thank u for all the support xoxo"

Oh, no. Thank YOU for agreeing to be taken out of the comforts of Seasides Heights and thrusted into a world with so much culture and history, we doubt that peeing behind a bar would be considered taboo or that you'll be gawked at more than the Vatican!

Happy trails, Miz WOWW!
