Madonna shoots from hip in new anti-war video
Madonna is returning to a video concept that she considered last year, but shelved due to controversy.
Looks like Madonna’s going to make that anti-war statement after all.
Last year, the singer shelved her “American Life” video after worldwide controversy erupted when it was revealed that she planned to include anti-war images in it. Now, says a source, Madonna is planning to return to an anti-war message for her upcoming Re-Invention Tour.
The source says that Madonna and her dancers have been training with rifles, military style, and will “reenact battle scenes in a way that is meant to underscore the tragedy of war.”
“Madonna has very strong feelings about the war in Iraq,” says a source. “But last year, it was too controversial a thing to do, even for her. The climate has changed somewhat since then.
Madonna‘s spokeswoman says there will be “drill team choreography” in the tour, but denies that there’s any anti-war message.
