For perhaps obvious reasons, a Catholic school upbringing often seems to serve as the catalyst for unleashing the diva buried deep inside those predisposed to being possessed by pop music demons.

Early reports said Madonna was paid up to $12 million for the work'which a Versace spokesman unofficially called ridiculous. Whatever the singer is being remunerated, the pictures are fabulous.
