ITALY – Mahmood celebrated his debut album certification as platinum with a somewhat weird photo. Some people consider it a blasphemy as he presents himself out of a church carrying himself like Madonna does with little Jesus.
Of course, he is not the first artist inspired by something like that and although it seems weird, it proves basically he respects Catholic church. Not sure if his religious preferences are open to the public, but in the very end who cares.
Insulting or not, one thing is for sure. His album success is something sacred for him.
Mahmood states on Instagram:
Every summer, during the night of San Lorenzo with my cousins we always made a bonfire on the beach to count the shooting stars. I don’t remember how many I saw but I remember well what I expressed when I saw one fall. Today My debut album GIOVENTÙ BRUCIATA is certified platinum. I know for sure that I sweated this result but every now and then remember to look at the stars.

Ogni estate, durante la notte di San Lorenzo con i miei cugini facevamo sempre un falò in spiaggia per contare le stelle cadenti. Io non ricordo quante ne ho viste ma ricordo bene cosa esprimevo quando ne vedevo una cadere. Oggi Il mio album d’esordio GIOVENTÙ BRUCIATA è certificato disco di platino. So di certo che questo risultato me lo sono sudato ma ogni tanto ricordatevi di guardare le stelle. ❤️🙏🏽
