LATEST: A German bishop has called on Madonna fans to boycott the superstar's Confessions concerts in the country, after learning of her mock crucifixion act. The 47-year-old singer has infuriated religious leaders in at the Vatican and throughout Italy, Russia and Germany with the controversial performance, which sees her wearing a crown of fake thorns while posing on a diamante cross. German Protestant Bishop MARGOT KAESMANN says, "I thought Madonna was better than this because she claims to be a religious person. "But maybe the only way an ageing superstar can attract attention is to offend people's religious sentiments. "I advise people to ignore Madonna. Stars come and go, but the Christian faith endures." Madonna's German concerts started in Dusseldorf last night (20AUG06).
