Brooklyn bishop ‘appalled’ over Sabrina Carpenter’s MV filmed at a 160-year-old Catholic church

With the recent release of pop star Sabrina Carpenter’s hit song, “Feather,” a Catholic bishop is taking issue with the fact that she filmed some parts of the video inside and outside a church in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Diocese of Brooklyn shared a statement with the Catholic News Agency on November 2, that said that Bishop Robert Brennan “is appalled by what was filmed at Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Brooklyn.”

“The parish did not follow diocesan policy regarding the filming on Church property, which includes a review of the scenes and script,” the statement wrote.

The diocese noted that the production company “failed to accurately represent the video content,” and added that Bishop Brennan is taking the matter seriously and will be looking into it further.

The music video for the song, directed by Mia Barnes, begins with shots of the 19th-century church. The singer is then seen wearing a black tulle dress and veil while dancing around the church’s pews and altar.

The horror-esque visual, inspired by movies like “Jennifer’s Body” and “Promising Young Woman,” depicts Carpenter feeling “lighter like a feather” after killing and witnessing the deaths of men who mistreated her by catcalling, mansplaining, and taking a photo of her skirt without her consent.

The singer dances around the church’s altar, which is decorated with memorabilia from funerals. It’s as if the former Disney Channel star is implying that she is not grieving their deaths, even though she appears to be in mourning.

Since its release, the video for the song from the deluxe version of the singer’s 2022 album “Emails I Can’t Send” has already amassed 2.7 million views on YouTube.
