Sabrina Carpenter is no stranger to the pop music world, she actually just got finished headlining our iHeartRadio Jingle Ball. So how did her latest hit song get a church administrator fired? The music video for 'Feather', which was just released a few weeks ago, was shot in Brooklyn at 'Our Lady of Mount Carmel-Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church'.
Of course Sabrina and her team got permission from the church's administrator, Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello, before shooting the video. However, days after its release the Diocese of Brooklyn, Bishop Robert Brennan, said that he was “appalled” by the content of the horror- and revenge-themed video — which features a pink hearse, multiple deaths of catcallers, oglers, and beyond, and Sabrina dancing outside and inside the church with a number of props on the altar, including a “good girls go to heaven” figurine, “R.I.P. B___h” coffin, and more. This stirred a lot of conversation on social media because of the popularity of the video.
Bishop Robert Brennan then followed up by removing Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello from his administrative position at the church. He stated, "the parish did not follow diocesan policy regarding the filming on Church property, which includes a review of the scenes and script.”
