Kabbalah Costumes

Pop diva Madonna and her film director husband, Guy Ritchie, celebrated Purim in Los Angeles at the Kabbalah Centre. Boy George, famous for his everyday-is-Purim wardrobe, recently criticized the Material Girl because of her ties to the center.

“Nobody has actually bothered to investigate the Kabbalah attitude to gay people and I can assure you that I have investigated it, and they are homophobic,” he said, according to the Sunday Mirror. “And I do think it’s shocking that somebody who has made so much money out of gay people is now part of an organization which is clearly anti-gay.”
