Madonna has once again been caught doing what she does best: causing a commotion.
The “Ghosttown” singer stirred up controversy over the weekend when she posted this steamy photo to her Instagram page. It depicts a Jewish man and a Muslim man about to engage in a passionate lip lock. Naturally, Madge captioned the photo with the hashtag #rebelhearts, a plug for her latest album.

As expected, the photo garnered all sorts of comments, with some people supporting the photo and others condemning it.
“I see two men one Muslim perhaps and one Jewish together sharing a moment of peace,” one person wrote. “Can’t we just all get along without discussing religious beliefs?”
Someone else added: “I don’t understand all the ppl here say it’s not possible I’m Jewish from Israel my boyfriend is Arab Muslim and we live together for 3 years now!”
“U think cuz u put a gay Israeli n a gay Palestinian together makes it ok to perform in Israel,” another person wrote.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Madonna has tried to get political on Instagram. Last month she received criticism for posting a photo of Margaret Thatcher, praising the antigay Prime Minister for being a #rebelheart. Realizing her slip up, the post was quickly deleted.

That is a beautiful picture. I extra love that kind of love.
And people still question why Madonna is Queen of Gays…
@Taskebab: Wait, lazily retweeting a picture to promote her own garbage, and killing the message the photo actually conveys makes her “Queen of Gays” as if we even need(or want) a queen?
Uh… no. No matter how much desperate action and tag-along “see I’m still relevant” guerrilla marketing it still won’t make most of us buy her albomb.
Sometimes an “artist” needs to know when to retire gracefully and the music business has progressed far beyond Madonna for better or for worse her time is over.

The pic is definitely beautiful, but Madge’s thirst is obvious and hilarious.

Props to Madonna. This is amazing of her to do.
She was supporting us when few would, and continues to do so
Awesome picture! I love it.
@Captain Obvious: SACRILEGE! REPENT FOR YOUR SINNER WORDS AND GIVE PRAISE TO OUR QUEEN!
The pic is kinda hott.
Some how I doubt if I had a half billion dollar fortune I would have nothing else to do with my life except shit like this.
Agree with the rest of you. Beautiful picture.
Well, Madonna didn’t cause controversy. She was celebrating love. All the naysayers are the ones causing controversy over love.
I’m a fan, always have been, but its just Madge, at it again and never is she busier than when she has an album and tour to promote. I’m sure she knew the reaction this rather, it must be said, sexy pic would generate.
Madonna ROCKS !!!!
LMAO at this bitch trying to be controversial. G3rl, just give us good songs, something you haven’t been able to deliver in 10 years.
I am soooo glad that a lot more people finally get to see this beautiful picture. I saw this picture way back last year or early this year i think and posted it on my wall. A lot of people liked it. Unfortunately I don’t have the reach that madonna has, so i am glad she posted this picture and a lot more people got to see it. Because honestly, regardless if what her other intentions might be, it is still a very good and hot picture that deserves more audience.
@Justin Christopher Lagerwey-Lehnherr: yeah like she actually really cares about LGBT people, our rights, and our issues instead of selling her shitty music LMAO!
As usual the pathetic haters have to post their useless nastiness.
Oh my God Madonna I am soooo loving this. You are fabulous sweetheart.
Why can’t she do both? What truly matter is the message, her message
is one of support and advance for the LGBT community and that cannot
And considering the amount of vitriol she gets from people like you, I am
surprised she still pushes for gay rights.
Madonna is a female attention-seeker. She’s one of these females who came in on the crest of the bisexual double standard which is now entrenched in America and elsewhere. In order to undo the damage that she and other women have caused, it’s going to take years.
These women exploit the sexist and highly homophobic double standard that girl-girl is hot and guy-guy is gross. It is a double standard that was initially brought in by the prostitution/porn industry and became mainstream because nobody from our side dared to challenge it. After all, porn is supposed to be “good for gay guys” as it is an extension of the promiscuity that we all love to engage in.
The damage these “bisexual” women have done is immense. They accept cash to perform their fake sexual acts with other women for the benefit of male viewers who identify as straight and who have no connection whatsoever with the gay rights movement. These women are effectively appeasing men who potentially spit in the faces of gay guys.
Why should we reward Madonna and others of her ilk for doing this?
A legendary gay icon. A legendary straight ally.
All hail the queen!
I love the photo, however, Madge never fails to take an opportunity to promote herself and her new album. Regardless, we love her. At least I do.
@Realitycheck: She gets vitriol simply because she’s a celebrity and doesn’t really care about LGBT rights, or in her case pretending to except for when it comes to promoting herself and her new album. In reality when she sees LGBT people she thinks of us just as a market who will rush out to buy her new music even though it’s pure shite and has been for decades.
it’s a gorgeous, sexy, evocative and emotional image.
and you know, a true one – both are outsiders, united.
As much as I’m against the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and hope for nothing but peace, as much I’m against Islamaphobia and antisemitism I’m also against both religions…and Christianity and Catholicism and basically everything else. All of these religions have justifications for murder, genocide, and forced conversion and oppression within their texts, they’re all terrible in equal measure.
@jason smeds: “After all porn is supposed to be “good for gay guys” as it is an extension of the promiscuity we all love to engage in.”
U should be so lucky.
i never hear from her unless shes trying to make money from me. truly..doesnt that seem to be the case. no controversy without the cash.
Where’s Bob LaBlah? We need some action (words) to go along with the image of those beautiful men! That image is just begging for some plot.
Grammadonna is so desperate to stay in the news. Wouldn’t putting out an album that isn’t boring do just as much?
At this point Madonna’s Instagram is a bigger entity than most Fortune 500 companies.
great picture MADONNA! RELIGION IS POISON!
She will do anything for attention…..ugh
Why is showing love conquering hate considered “trouble?”
You go girl do what you do best !!
GOOD We NEED More LOVE!
