In her current “Confessions” concert tour, Madonna crucifies herself, juxtaposes photos of Bush and Blair with those of bin Laden, Hitler and Mugabe, and makes a “crude reference to Bush and oral sex,” according to Reuters.

Ooooh. How risque. If it ever occurs to Madonna to be edgy or controversial again, she could try showing some images of Mohammed instead. Of course, if she does that, she might find herself…crucified.

Meanwhile, Madonna’s likewise orally obsessed actress counterpart, Sharon Stone, gave opening remarks at AmFar’s annual Cinema Against AIDS dinner in Cannes. She delivered a “thunderbolt against President Bush,” as Fox 411 reports: “Our president has spent $167 million on abstinence programs, and zero dollars on sex education. Zero dollars on teaching about safe sex.”

Aside from the fact that she’s lying, if Sharon Stone wants to teach kids about safe sex, she can educate them herself by giving demonstrations of her preferred form of safe sex: “If you’re in a situation where you cannot get out of sex, offer a blow job,” which is “a hundred times safer than vaginal or anal sex.”
