Madonna's New Islamic Look

Independent i.e.  (h/t LaH) The Queen of Pop is at it again. Madonna loves touting a gun or wearing fishnets and spandex at an age when most of us prefer to cover up. But her latest outfit is more controversial still. She has been pictured wearing a chainmail mask resembling a niqab – a face veil worn by Muslim women.

The star posted a photo from her forthcoming photoshoot with Harper’s Bazaar magazine on Instagram and Facebook,accompanied by the words: “The Revolution of Love is on…Inshallah [Arabic for 'God willing'].

Some fans have interpreted the chainmail mask as a message of empowerment to women, but one Instagram user said: “You think this message is empowering to women?…If this was a woman who really wanted to empower other females she could do this in many other ways…When did gagging women make them feel good?”

 How long till a Fatwa is put on her head?
