On September 17 1998, Madonna released a statement against the World Vaisnava Association’s criticism of her Ray of Light/Shanti MTV performance: “The essence of purity and divinity is non-judgement… they should practice what they preach… if they’re so pure, why are they watching MTV?”

  1. What was the criticism? Cultural appropriation? Fair crack. Had Madonna even been to India? Nup. But something new to sell for a minute, lol

    • Yeah that vocal performance was pretty damn bad. I don’t give a fuck about Cultural Appropriation. The lamest butthurt bullshit in a long time. I DO believe that Madonna was genuine in the ROL era. It’s later that she waffles.

  2. As I recall, the criticism was that you could see Madonna’s nipples through her wife beater on national television. Jealous haters who wish they had epic tits like Madonna’s.
