This gay icon is the voice of god in Ariana Grande’s new video

Ariana Grande in the God is a Woman video

Ariana Grande’s video for new single God is a Woman features the voice of Madonna as god.

She dropped the clip yesterday, with the pop icon reciting a Bible passage towards the end.

Material Girl singer Madonna puts a spin on Ezekiel 25:17 – the same passage famously read by Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction.

Switching the word ‘brothers’ for ‘sisters’, Madonna says: ‘And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger, those who attempt to poison and destroy my sisters, and you will know my name is the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon you…’ The moment appears around the 2:24 mark.

Madonna has a history of using religion themes in her work, most famously in the iconic video for her single Like A Prayer. She also appeared on a crucifix during her 2006 Confessions Tour.

‘Thank you @madonna … u know why’

Madonna’s vocal cameo follows a teasing tweet posted by Ariana three days ago, reading: ‘Thank you @madonna … u know why ♡.

Ariana’s new album Sweetener is out 17 August. Meanwhile Madonna’s new album, rumored to be called Beautiful Game, is out later this year.
