The End of Innocence

IC is reporting that Charlotte Church's angel days appear to be long gone. It is unfortunate to see someone with so much talent allow herself to get sucked into the culture of the world.

Charlotte Church has sparked a holy row by dressing up as a drunk, drug-taking nun in her new chat show.
The Crazy Chick, who was raised as a Catholic, smashed a statue of The Virgin Mary and stubbed chewing gum out on the face of the baby Jesus in a shocking comedy sketch she recorded for last week's pilot of her Channel 4 TV debut.
And in a sensational swipe at the Royals, religious leaders and statesmen - to whom the Voice of an Angel sang as a child - Charlotte branded the Pope a "Nazi" and made jokes about The Queen, Princess Diana, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela.

The multi-millionairess hopes to spark a Friday night ratings war with BBC One chat king Jonathan Ross if Channel 4 commissions a series.
But last night, Welsh religious leaders blasted Charlotte for dressing up as a nun in a sketch which saw her taking communion wafers in the shape of smiley face ecstasy tablets.
Naughty Sister Charlotte popped the pill-shaped biscuits after being offered them by ex-EastEnders bad boy Nick Cotton, played by actor John Altman.
His character, Sister Dave, said, "This s*** is good, want some?" before Charlotte replied, "Love it! I love nunning".
The pair then pretended to hallucinate before taking part in a chapel rave.
Charlotte - who sang to Pope John Paul II when she was 12 - also smashed open a statue of The Virgin Mary in the sketch to reveal a hidden can of Strongbow cider.
And in a cheeky nod to her binge-drinking days, Charlotte joked how she also worships Saint Fortified Wine and Saint Thunderbird, a brand of super-strength wine.
Last night, her naughty nun performance sparked outrage within the Catholic Church in Wales.
Reverend Edwin Regan, Bishop of the Wrexham Roman Catholic Diocese, said: "I would not want to give her any publicity if this is the kind of thing she is doing."
And in an aside to her blonde classical rival, he added: "I wish she had turned out the way Katherine Jenkins has."

The audience's jaws also dropped as she ordered lookalikes of the Queen, Mother Teresa, the Pope and Nelson Mandela to be hosed down with water.
