  Madonna protests about war with video
Updated 11 February 2003, 08.06
Madonna
Madonna has made a pop video to speak out against the possible war with Iraq.

The Queen of pop did the video for the title track and first single of her next album, American Life which comes out in April.

In it, Maddy prances around a fashion show catwalk surrounded by models dressed in camouflage and combats.

Apparently she throws a grenade and chaos follows, with scenes showing soldiers and victims of war, including blood-covered babies.

Her spokeswoman said the video was not meant to pick on US President George W Bush and his policies specifically.


It was more a statement about the "horrors of war", she said.

She added Madonna did the video because she had been "moved" by the possibility of a US-led war with Iraq.

Madonna filmed it in Los Angeles last week and the finishing touches are now being added before its March release.

A few popstars have said they are against war, including Sheryl Crow and Blur's Damon Albarn.
