Earlier this week marked the 30th anniversary of one of Madonna’s most popular songs, and so the pop music icon took to social media to remember one of her biggest hits. She also paid tribute to the “Like A Prayer” anniversary by recalling all the drama surrounding the controversial music video.

Monday, March 4 was technically the “Like A Prayer” anniversary, and the following day Madonna took to her Instagram account to pay tribute.

“30 years ago today I released Like a Prayer and made a video that caused so much controversy because I kissed a black saint and danced in front of burning crosses!” reads the post. “I also made a commercial with PEPSI that was banned because my video was seen as inappropriate. 🔥🔥🔥Happy Birthday to Me and Controversy! #likeaprayer 🙏🏼 meant to post this yesterday but was blocked! 😂 what a shocker!”
