24/7: MADGE DEFIES THE BOMBERS.
WHATEVER Madonna wants, she must have. Even if it means putting her life at risk...The 44-year-old queen of pop is insisting her next video - Nothing Fails - is shot in Israel.
The song makes references to the Kaballah - based on Jewish mysticism. Despite concern from her record company, Warner's, Madge has put her foot down.
My spies tell me: "Her record bosses are really worried about it. They are trying to talk her around, but she's having none of it. She has told them it makes sense to shoot it in Israel as the Kaballah originates from there.
"Madonna is not particularly bothered about her safety and potential risks. She doesn't think it's as bad as it seems."
Her decision to shoot her video in Israel should come as no big surprise to her bosses.
Madge is so fanatical about her faith that she's also planning to make a one-hour TV special on the joys of her Kaballah religious cult. Oh dear.
