Don't don that niqab, Madge
by Julie Burchill
On hearing that Madonna is reading the Koran, and might be converting from Kabbalism to Islam, I must admit that my first reaction was not sorrow or outrage but rather a bone-deep weariness.
Ever the cynic, I can't help thinking that the only reason Madge would ever don a niqab would be as a handy cover on those awkward days when she's overdosed on facial fillers. But I understand that there are other reasons why women take this strange Stockholm-Syndromey step:
1) They're thick (see Lauren Booth).
