MADONNA IS NOT AFFILIATED TO THE EXPLOSIVES COMPANY

She's not yet actually announced what the company is for, but Madonna has already managed to upset people by calling her new firm Semtex Girls.

The splendidly named Explosia, who make semtex, aren't happy with her attempts to annexe their brand name. (Note to Madonna: not a good idea to piss off explosives manufacturers.)

What's even more bemusing is why she'd have plumped for that name in the current political climate anyway. Madge explains the rationale thus:

“The Semtex Girl is a girl who is dynamic, a girl who explodes and doesn’t take no for an answer.”

Oh... like a suicide bomber, then?

We're betting it'll be a shit line of cosmetics and/or fashion.

I can see the ad campaign now:

"The Semtex girl has a face like Goretex, wears white kecks, eats Mex, chats in txt and likes it same-sex."

PS "The Semtex Girl is a girl who is dynamic, a girl who explodes and doesn’t take no for an answer."

Even if the question is "do I look stupid"?

This is the crappiest pop/explosives idea since someone suggested giving the Nobel Peace Prize to Bush's faux-friend and Britain's faux-knight.

I've been to the Explosia factory in Pardubice. They sponsor the hockey team.

The scariest part of this story was when I misread the first sentence, and thought that Madonna was calling her next film Semtex Girls.

The bomb connection might make some sense for a Madonna movie...
