Madonna Was Going to Wear a Muslim Bridal Costume, But She Chickened Out


Britain's not-always-reliable "Sun" tabloid claims MADONNA had come up with a new outfit she called her TERROR BRIDE costume.

The costume was a "mix of a traditional Iraqi bridal veil and a U.S. soldier's uniform." This "artistic expression" was supposed to be a "comment on women's oppression and war."  She was going to wear it in concert, and in an upcoming video.  But Madonna chickened out at the last minute, supposedly because she was scared that it could be SO controversial that she was, "putting her life at risk."

However, a "source" adds, "Even when she said she wasn't going to go ahead [with it], she winked [and said] that it was being put aside 'for now.'"

(By the way, Madonna's ex-husband GUY RITCHIE is now engaged to his pregnant girlfriend, Jacqui Ainsley.  For what it's worth, he's 44, and she's 30.  This will be their second child together.  Their first was born last fall.)
