Because it’s a silly place, the Internet freaked out over Madonna wearing a remarkably accurate Khaleesi costume for Purim. Turns out it was so accurate because it’s the actual goddamn costume Emilia Clarke wears on Game of Thrones. NY Daily News reports:
“It’s my real costume, because I thought I was dreaming,” Clarke told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday night.
“I got an email from amazing HBO publicist Mara, saying, ‘Madonna would like to borrow your costume, is that okay?’
”I thought, ‘God, this must be a dream. This can’t be real,’” said Clarke.
Ironically, it really was a dream which allowed Madonna to obtain the costume for she is not bound by this realm or any other. As for her purpose for the garments? Lowering our defenses so that we might be lured into her hairy armpit of eternal suffering. Welcome to the darkness, little priest.
