Christianity has been under assault in America and across the globe for a while now. With the woke mind virus infecting leftists from Hollywood to the recording industry and governments regularly thumbing their noses at God and religion, particularly Christianity, it wouldn’t be a shock if Jesus came back tomorrow extremely pissed off. However, one pop star has finally pushed the United Kingdom too far, resulting in the ban of her new album for imagery offensive to Christians. So, who was it? Madonna? Perhaps Lizzo? Nope, it was Demi Lovato. The same Demi Lovato that as recently as last year changed her pronouns, only to change them back. How trendy! Check this out.
Promos for pop star Demi Lovato’s album Holy Fvck have been banned in the United Kingdom for featuring images deemed offensive to Christians.
Released in August, the promos for Lovato’s album featured highly provocative images using religious iconography, including one that featured the BDSM-clad singer laying out over a crucifix-shaped mattress. As many as four people complained to Great Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about the images, which led to the ban.

To be clear, the actual music wasn’t banned. Demi Lovato isn’t exactly vintage 1980s Madonna. There’s no “Like a Virgin” to get the religious right riled up. Billy Joel isn’t pissing off Catholics with “Only the Good Die Young.” If WAP can be a worldwide sensation, then white bread and mayonnaise-like Lovato certainly can get airplay. Where Demi blew it, however, was the promotion and album art. The Christian imagery used in the disgusting promo is bad even by today’s standards.
In a statement on Wednesday, the ASA said that the suggestive image of Lovato on the crucifix mattress coupled with the words “Holy Fvck” too closely tied the sacred Christian symbol to sex.
“We considered that the image of Ms. Lovato bound up in a bondage-style outfit whilst lying on a mattress shaped like a crucifix, in a position with her legs bound to one side which was reminiscent of Christ on the cross, together with the reference to ‘holy fvck’, which in that context was likely to be viewed as linking sexuality to the sacred symbol of the crucifix and the crucifixion, was likely to cause serious offense to Christians,” the ASA said.
In a world where Christians are increasingly being marginalized and excoriated for their beliefs, while Jews, Muslims, and numerous other groups fall into an almost “protected” class, it is surprising to see anyone do anything about the obvious heretic nature of the imagery. Lovato probably should hope Jesus doesn’t come back anytime soon, lest she has some explaining to do. For her part, Lovato seemed to know what she was doing was a bit too risqué.
Lovato herself openly wondered how she could promote the album in the past due to its crass title.
“I remember being the one asking questions, like, ‘Am I gonna be able to say this? And what do I say instead?’” she said in a Sirius XM interview back in July. “And it’s just like, look, it’s f–king rock n’ roll. They’ll bleep you if they need to and, like, if they don’t, even better.”
Lovato couldn’t be more incorrect in labeling her music rock and roll. Her brand of bubblegum pop is utterly forgettable and bland. Her teeny-bopper audience has aged out, and now she has taken to shock value to draw attention to her room-temperature tap water style of music. After wrestling with her “fluidity” and her pronouns and getting a tiny bit of publicity last year, Lovato has thrown a Hail Mary with this album. One that is definitely landing incomplete in the United Kingdom.
