This is Madonna, reporting from Israel

By Jessica Elgot, July 29, 2009

The Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot has a new face on its pages - Madonna.

The paper is publishing Madonna's article "How My Life Changed" on Friday, translated into Hebrew.

The recently divorced star, 50, is devoted to Kabbalah and has adopted a Hebrew name, Esther.

She will perform in Israel for the final leg of her Sticky and Sweet tour in September.

The article is said to be about her “religious awakening” which she claims happened 14 years ago, a report from the Associated Press claimed.
