Madonna Strives To Spread Spiritual Message

Pop star MADONNA hopes to inspire others by modelling herself on great leaders like GANDHI, MARTIN LUTHER KING, and JOHN LENNON. The 48-year-old angered church leaders with a controversial crucifixion scene on her CONFESSIONS tour, but insists she is trying to spread a message about peace and love. Madonna told Sirius Satellite Radio's OutQ channel, "I want to be like Gandhi and Martin Luther King and John Lennon - but I want to stay alive. For me we all need to be JESUS in our time." The star defends the concert crucifixion scene, which featured video images of AIDS orphans in Africa, saying, "Jesus' message was to love your neighbour as yourself, and these are people in need. "I hope people got that message. Of course, some people thought, 'Oh, she's just being controversial, she's just getting on a cross and trying to p**s people off.' But that wasn't my intention at all."
