Madonna and those shoes

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.

I was thinking those shoes look really uncomfy as the heel is too far forward. But hey.

Oh for the fucking sake of fucking fucking fuck.

Sounds like the cunts at MAMAMAAAAMMAMMMA MIA just wanted to get in the papers and hang their name in the google rankings with Madonna.

Utterly pathetic donkey-cock-gobbling wankstains.

PS You're right, those shoes are hideous. Imagine that, Trixy being right about shoes? :o)


I think the shoes are terrific, but not so sure on a 50 year old.
