Bishop ‘Appalled’ ‼️
On Halloween, the 24-year-old singer and actress released a music video for her new song “Feather,” which she reportedly filmed inside and outside the historic 19th-century Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Brooklyn, New York.
Pop singer Sabrina Carpenter’s latest music video appears to have drawn the wrath of God – or his representatives, at least. Brooklyn bishop Robert Brennan criticized Carpenter’s music video ‘Feather,’ which was filmed at a church in New York, for being too raunchy.
The video features Carpenter wearing a short dress as several men kill each other over her. It also shows her going to their funerals at the church. One of the coffins says: “RIP B****.”
The Bishop also slammed the local parish for letting the filming take place at all, launched a full investigation and sacked the vicar, Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello. Yikes. “The parish did not follow diocesan policy regarding the filming on church property, which includes a review of the scenes and script,” Brennan’s statement read.
In one scene, she drives a pink hearse up to the church. Toward the end of the video, she dances provocatively up the isle of the church, as well as on the altar, while wearing a short dress.
“Carpenter appeared at one point in the video with no pants while profane decorations lay atop and around the altar,” CNA wrote. “The video depicted several men fighting over the singer and eventually killing each other over her; their funeral coffins appear to end up in the Catholic church in the video.”
Bishop Brennan and Monsignor Joseph Grimaldi conducted a Mass of Reparation, during which the bishop blessed the altar with holy water.
In a statement following the Mass, the diocese said: ‘Through the offering of this Mass, Bishop Brennan has restored the sanctity of this church and repaired the harm.’
