IF there’s one woman who doesn’t take kindly to being told what to do, it’s Madonna. Yet the singer has backed down from staging one of her most dangerous stunts yet — messing around with a traditional Muslim bridal costume. Madge had planned to prance around in her new music video — and possibly on stage — dressed as a “Terror Bride” as a comment on women’s oppression and war. She already had the outfit — a mix of a traditional Iraqi bridal veil and a US soldier’s uniform — stitched up to fit her and had tried it on. Wise choice to drop it — but sad to see Madge censoring herself. Some critics got especially worked up when she got her guns out at her Edinburgh gig in July — just 48 hours after the Batman cinema massacre in Colorado. I wouldn’t have liked to have been the messenger telling her the Terror Bride wasn’t one of her brightest ideas.
