Over the years Madonna and her corsets have made it into the news time and again. At one time I could see what all the fuss was about, when Madonna put that iconic Gaultier corset on we collectively gasped.
Since then people's attitudues have changed and corsets are now part of mainstream culture something that would have been unthinkable in 1990. We are all used to dressing up in corsets for burlesque evening, nights out, halloween etc.
So I find it baffling that the ABC network in the USA have decided to censor Madonna's latest advert for her perfume, Truth Or Dare. The advert shows Madonna, 'writhing around in corsets and fishnets and some bondage gear'. The network would like the corset Madonna is wearing to be made longer to cover up more of her bottom, and more of her chest.
I suspect that this is yet another publicity stunt to promote a perfume which otherwise would have faced stiff competition from the plethora of other perfumes out there by celebrities. The really surprising thing about this is that the press is lapping it up and I too am blogging about it.
The moral of the story, never underestimate a woman in a corset.
