New York City, N.Y., Jun 12, 2010 / 10:43 am America/Denver (CNA).
Catholic League president Bill Donohue dismissed pop sensation Lady Gaga in her recent controversial music video – which features highly sexualized images coupled with Catholic religious symbols – as a mediocre, “Madonna wannabe.”
The starlet's recent video for her hit song “Alejandro,” features the singer clad at various points in a red, latex nun's habit, swallowing a Rosary, and engaging in simulated erotic encounters with her male back up dancers.
“Lady Gaga is playing Madonna copy cat, squirming around half-naked with half-naked guys, abusing Catholic symbols – they're always Catholic symbols – while bleating out 'Alejandro' enough times to induce vomit,” wrote Donohue in a statement Friday.
The singer “has now become the new poster girl for American decadence and Catholic bashing, sans the looks and talent of her role model,” he added.
Fox News covered the controversial video on Friday as part of a growing trend of anti-Catholicism in Hollywood.
