Madonna has taken to Instagram to celebrate the 30th release birthday of ‘Like A Prayer’, one of her most, the singer admits, controversial songs ever.
Speaking about the song which was released in 1989, the icon said, “30 years ago today I released Like a Prayer and made a video that caused so much controversy because I kissed a black saint and danced in front of burning crosses!
“I also made a commercial with PEPSI that was banned because my video was seen as inappropriate.”
She then added, “Happy Birthday to Me and Controversy!”
