Madonna

All Hail to the Queen.

May 8, 2018

Considering the theme of Monday night's Met Gala was "fashion and the Catholic imagination," there's only one pop goddess to book for a surprise gig: Madonna. Voguereports that the 59-year-old "Vogue" singer took to a staircase inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art to perform her religious-tinged hit "Like a Prayer" before moving on to the Leonard Cohen classic "Hallelujah." She also debuted a brand-new song called "Beautiful Game." When it came out in 1989, "Like a Prayer" received a backlash of controversy for its use of religious iconography. "Stairway to heaven!" Madonna captioned a clip of her performance on Instagram. "Thank you to all who helped make it happen."
