Why has Madonna has decided she wants to wear a Muslim bridal dress? According to reports Madonna was planning on wearing a combination of a traditional Iraqi bridal veil and a US soldier's uniform, in the video for her upcoming single "Superstar" as a statement against oppression against women and war.

But after being convinced by her advisers who told her not to wear it for her own safety, she agreed on not wearing it.

Her advisers thought it is best to cancel the political stunt because of the outrage it would be likely to cause.

"She had paraded around in it and said she was going to wear it in her next music video."

"At first when people started telling her it was madness she just brushed it off."

"But when they mentioned that her actions could put her life at risk she decided to ditch it from her video and certainly won't be wearing it on stage."

Last month, Madonna caused controversy when she referred to US President Barack Obama who is openly Christian as a "black Muslim" at a concert in Washington, but she later clarified her comments insisting she was "being ironic".
She added: "Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim, though I know that plenty of people in America think he is."
