Madonna has built a career on shocking the middle-class with her outrageous costumes, but some critics are saying she may have crossed the line (again) by wearing a chainmail mask that looks like a niqab, a face veil normally worn by Muslim women.
Madonna posted the picture (right) on Instagram and Facebook with the caption: “The Revolution of Love is on…Inshallah.”
"Inshallah" is Arabic for "God willing,"
Apparently, this controversial photo is from a photoshoot with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, notes The Independent.
Madonna is known for following the Kabbalah religion, which has been described as heavily-laden mysticism mixed with parts of Judaism.
Some fans think Madonna’s chainmail mask is criticism of the oppression suffered by women in Islamic countries, or it might be another gimmick to boost sales.
