Fall of Roman: An outrageous performance, all the wrong reasons

Surprise. Surprise. A pop star has tried to use the hallowed imagery of the church to grab headlines and dollars. Madonna? Nope. Lady Gaga? Nope. It was hip-hop Barbie Nicki Minaj scraping the bottom of the communion cup for every last religious cliché. There were the scarlet monk robes, the […]
