Madonna pens article for Israeli newspaper

Israel’s biggest daily newspaper, Yediot Achronot, is boasting a new international correspondent, Madonna, who wrote an article headlined “How My Life Changed” for the July 31 issue.

Madonna isn’t Jewish but she has adopted the Hebrew name of Esther and studies Jewish mysticism. She made a private pilgrimage to Israel in 2004 and is planning two shows in the country in September as part of her Sticky and Sweet tour.

In her article, the 50-year-old entertainer describes her religious awakening almost 14 years ago, saying she realized fame and fortune were not the end but only the beginning. —
