Madonna Teases ‘Rebel Heart Tour’ with Pole-Dancing Nuns

+

As if Madonna’s Rebel Heart era couldn’t get any more desperate, the 56-year-old singer released a promo video today for her global tour, starring (totally-age-appropriate-if-you’re-in-college) pole-dancing nuns. We’re in full support of Madonna’s bold fight against ageism, but this move seems incredibly tired at this point—a blatantly obvious attempt to scream, “See? I’m such a fearless bad-ass,” to a pop environment that’s not at all shocked by blasphemy or sexuality, anymore. Modesty isn’t the answer, just some creative direction that pushes Madonna’s career out of this blasé rut she’s been stuck in all year. Watch the “Rebel Heart Tour” promo, below, and try (if you can) to hide your sweeping yawns.
