How do you solve a problem like Madonna?

The veteran pop provocateur’s gearing up to tour her latest album, Rebel Heart – and she’s just as outrageous as ever.

As in the past, Madge, 56, pairs sexuality with religious imagery. This time around? In a teaser clip set to her new song “Devil Pray,” the singer’s habit-decked backup dancers swing around on a stripper pole! (Check out the 0:22 mark.)

Madonna’s onstage antics are sure to cause a stir once again, as they did when she hung from a cross on her 2006 Confessions tour. See also: that time her Pepsi ad was pulled from TV in 1989 because many took offense with her “Like a Prayer” video, which featured burning crosses and some eyebrow-raising behavior with a saint.

The “Bitch I’m Madonna” singer’s Rebel Heart Tour – on which she’ll be joined by an unlikely opener, comedian Amy Schumer – kicks off in Montreal on Sept. 9.
