Madonna believes the controversy her devotion to Kabbalah has caused is on a par with the reaction she'd have received announcing an affiliation with the Nazi party.

The MATERIAL GIRL finds it bizarre the media is so interested in her faith.

She tells British magazine Attitude, "People get very upset about the fact that I decided to study a spiritual belief system. It's very strange.

"I may as well have announced that I've joined the Nazi party."
