Pop superstar Madonna has once again upset religious leaders when she sang a song while hanging form a giant mirrored cross as video screens showed images of third-world poverty.

According to, the Church of England made a statement saying: "Why would someone with so much talent seem to feel the need to promote herself by offending so many people?"

Madonna performs during her concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday, May 21, 2006.

David Muir of the Evangelical Alliance said: "Madonna's use of Christian imagery is an abuse and it is dangerous." He called for her to "drop it from the tour".
