Madonna has decided that she now wants to be known as Esther. And her reason:
“I was named after my mother. My mother died when she was very young, of cancer, and I wanted to attach myself to another name,” she said.
“This is in no way a negation of who my mother is. I wanted to attach myself to the energy of a different name.”
