Sister Cristina Scuccia is an Italian Ursuline nun who won the Italian version of the singing competition The Voice earlier this year. She has elected to release a cover of Madonna's "Like a Virgin" as a single. Here is what she says the song is about:
I chose it. With no intention to provoke or scandalize. Reading the text, without being influenced by previous interpretations, you discover that it is a song about the power of love to renew people. To rescue them from their past. And this is the way that I wanted to interpret it. For this reason we have transformed this song from the pop-dance piece which it was, into a romantic ballad, a bit like the ones by Amos Lee. Something more similar to a lay prayer, than to a pop piece.
MR. BROWN: Let me tell you what "Like a Virgin"'s about. It's all about a girl who digs a guy with a big dick. The entire song, it's a metaphor for big dicks.
MR. BLUE: No, it ain't. It's about a girl who's very vulnerable. She's been fucked over a few times and then she meets a guy who's very sensitive.
MR. BROWN: Whoa...whoa...time out Greenbay. Tell that bullshit to the tourists..."Like a Virgin"'s not about some sensitive girl who meets a nice fella. That's what "True Blue"'s about. Granted, no argument about that...OK. Let me tell you what "Like a Virgin"'s about. It's all about this cooz who's a regular fuck machine. I'm talking morning, day, night, afternoon— dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick.
MR. BLUE: How many dicks is that?
MR. WHITE: A lot.
MR. BROWN: Then one day she meets this John Holmes motherfucker, and it's like, whoa, baby. This cat is like Charles Bronson in The Great Escape. He's digging tunnels. She's getting this serious dick action and she's feeling something she ain't felt since forever— pain. Pain...It hurts. It hurts her. It shouldn't hurt her. Her pussy should be Bubbleyum by now, but when this cat fucks her, it hurts. It hurts just like it did the first time. You see, the pain is reminding a fuck machine what it was once like to be a virgin. Hence: "Like a Virgin."
You decide who's right.
