Happy Birthday Madge!
She celebrates the big 48 with news shes being monitored by German authorities...
Its Queen of Pop Madonna's birthday day today but amidst the party poppers and jelly and ice cream comes news that prosecutors in Germany will be closely monitoring her Dusseldorf gig this Sunday night (August 20).
Officials in the country are concerned that the segment in her Confessions show, in which she hangs from a cross with a crown of thorns on her head, could be construed as insulting religious beliefs " and if they think so theyll act accordingly.
The stunt has been widely criticised by religious leaders as an act of hostility towards the Roman Catholic Church, but so far Madge has avoided serious trouble.
A spokesman for prosecutors in Germany also conceded that the show might well be covered by laws protecting artistic freedoms.
Well, we at MTV.co.uk caught the one-time Material Girl at Wembley again last night and lets just say, prosecutors or no prosecutors, if were still that flexible at 48 well be ecstatic.
