Madonna has a history of mocking Christianity. There was the ‘Like a Prayer’ video, her crown of thorns, and a stage show that involved her performing while on a cross. The anti-Christian American left saw her as brave for having the guts to be so controversial but when controversy is the only consequence, it’s not a true litmus test for bravery.
How about mocking Islam? Madonna was planning to wear a Muslim bridal dress in her new video but has now decided not to.
Via Contact Music:
Madonna has decided against wearing a Muslim bridal dress in her new music video over fears for her safety.
The 54-year-old singer was planning to don a ‘Terror Bride’ outfit – a combination of a traditional Iraqi bridal veil and a US soldier’s uniform – in the video for upcoming single ‘Superstar’ as a statement against oppression against women and war, but her advisers convinced her to ditch the political stunt because of the outrage it would be likely to cause.
A source said: ”Madonna had the outfit ready to go. She was really proud of it and said it was her ‘Terror Bride’ costume.
”She had paraded around in it and said she was going to wear it in her next music video.
”At first when people started telling her it was madness she just brushed it off.
”But when they mentioned that her actions could put her life at risk she decided to ditch it from her video and certainly won’t be wearing it on stage.”
Perhaps if Madonna had a brief moment of honesty with herself, logic and reason might smack her upside her head with the blatant contradiction.
Then again, we are talking about Madonna.
