Father Massimo Palombella and Rihanna
Exclusive news- Article by Leo Lyon Zagami
The Pontifical Musical Chapel Sistina, known to most people as the “Pope’s Choir,” bills itself as the world’s oldest choir. This one-thousand-five-hundred year old institution has been part of the tradition of liturgical choirs since the first century of the Roman Catholic Church. Some have called it the last bastion of the grand liturgical music of the Latin Church, built on the pillars of Gregorian chant. The choir is now under investigation and in danger of collapsing due to a series of financial scandals that involve Father Massimo Palombella, the director of the Pontifical Musical Chapel Sistina, and manager Michelangelo Nardella.
Last year, the Pope launched the idea of a US Tour for his choir in hopes of recapturing some of their former glory. So, earlier this year, the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel Choir embarked on its first U.S. tour in 30 years, hoping to prove to audiences in New York, Washington and Detroit, that it had abandoned its reputation as the “Sistine Screamers”. However, the choir seems to have much bigger problems and the main person to blame for this might be the pop star Rihanna.
The families of the choir boys were shocked when sent photos straight from Michelangelo Nardella’s phone from the Met Gala, also known as the Met Ball, which is the annual fundraising event to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City, that marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. During the event, entertainers such as Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Selma Hayek posed with members of Pope Francis’ choir, in a way that was judged as inappropriate and disrespectful. The parents of some of the 35 young choir singers forced the Pope to take immediate action. One photo, in particular, that shocked the families of the choir boys and the Holy See featured Rihanna wearing a Pope’s hat with a pearl and crystal-embellished mitre, posing with Father Massimo Palombella in a selfie, sporting the infamous duck face pose.
The Metropolitan Museum’s event secretly backed by the Vatican was entitled “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,”and Hollywood celebs seem to love the Catholic theme. Co-chair Anna Wintoureditor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988, showed up wearing custom Chanel, featuring a diamond rosary, and declared herself “Cardinal Chanel.” Actor Jared Leto went as himself, which is to say, that he dressed like Jesus, and Lily Collins wore black Givenchy with a red tear drawn on her face and a silver halo propped atop her head.
Following the event, Amanda Arnold wrote in The Cutregarding Rihanna: “All we need now is for Pope Francis to roll up in the Popemobile and declare her the real Pope, which she is. Time to ascend to heaven.”But that’s not the case and Catholics are fed up with this liberal abusive farse encouraged by the Jesuit Pope.
