The Queen of Pop forced a building full of Kabbalah-followers to await her arrival before proceeding with the Yom Kippur service on Tuesday evening at New York City’s Park Avenue Armory.


According to The New York Post, “Madonna was the last to arrive, and it seemed like they were holding up the ceremony to wait for her.”

Full story

Madonna has been devoted to the Kabbalah faith for quite some time, referencing the Jewish offshoot in songs, interviews, stage performances, and album art work.


The 54-year old singer brought her daughter Lourdes (now "Lola") along to mark the Day of Atonement, wearing a bright purple sweat suit with the number 86 written on it. She also fashioned a hat with the word "Vogue".


“She came through a back entrance with her daughter, Lourdes, and was seated in the front row. Once she was seated, it could begin. All the men were in white but Madonna had a loud track suit on. Also there was her younger boyfriend (Brahim Zaibat), who arrived wearing cream," the New York Post source continued.


Madonna may have caused an upset, but once the ceremony began, the singer was respectful and focused.


"(Madonna) definitely set herself apart from everyone else. She is like the queen of Kabbalah," the unnamed source continued.
