Another day, another Madonna song that has people scratching their heads. The American Family Association and The Vatican condemned the music video for “Like A Prayer” because of its blasphemous imagery.

There was so much pressure that Pepsi ended up canceling an advertising campaign that featured the song in 1989. The Pope even asked people to boycott her concerts in 1990 shortly after the song’s release. Madonna has been banned in Egypt and has lots of restrictions in Russia.
