(Newser) – Madonna hasn't made headlines in at least a few days, so the Material Girl remedied that today. She was reportedly planning to wear a traditional Muslim bridal veil and a US soldier's uniform in a new music video, an outfit she had dubbed "her 'Terror Bride' costume," one source tells the Sun. But she's been talked out of wearing it by advisers who warned it could actually "put her life at risk," the source continues.

"She had paraded around in it and said she was going to wear it in her next music video" and maybe even on stage, the source says. It was meant to be some sort of comment about war and the oppression of women, and Madonna "was really disappointed as she was so adamant about it," the source says. "Even when she said she wasn’t going to go ahead she winked that it was being put aside 'for now.'" (Read more Madonna stories.)
