I read in the Metro today that Madonna was criticised because she wore a pair of Chanel shoes which had a gun as the heel.
Madonna has been branded 'uncaring' by a British murder victims' group after she controversially stepped out at the premiere of her new movie wearing a pair of shoes with handgun heels...Lyn Costello, from Mothers Against Murder And Aggression (MAMAA), said: 'I am horrified that Madonna can see these shoes as fashion.
It really does get on my wick when someone can't step out in a pair of shoes without being branded an 'uncaring mother who should know better'. The shoes aren't actually real guns: Madonna isn't going to whip them off and start shooting down kids from rival gangs in South London. And I think it highly unlikely that someone would take a look at those shoes and think 'hey, Madonna has plastic guns as heels in her shoes. That must mean guns are hip - hey, I'll go shoot someone.' Correct me if I'm wrong but the socio-economic groups who are most linked to gun crime aren't the kind of people who would pay the slightest bit of attention to a 50 year old mother with a penchant for poppy dance tracks and an unusual timbre.
No, I think the worst crime committed here is a crime against fashion. Sorry, Karl, but it doesn't do it for me.
