When the rest of us have to put together a costume for Halloween or Purim or whatever weird cosplay shit you do in your free time (no judgement) we go out to our nearest Savers, find the pair of pants with the least amount of questionable stains on the crotch and ass, stuff them under our coat because ain’t nobody paying monies for pants that smell like bleached-out dookie, swing by U.S. Haircuttters to ask for a pile of scrap clippings so you can make a wig, and if our costume needs wings of any kind, we stretch a trash bag over a couple of coat hangers.
But not Madonna. Madonna is a very rich and very powerful lady. When Madonna wanted to dress up as Daenerys Targaryen for Purim, she didn’t just send out her assistant to Party Depot and grab a generic “Dragon Princess” costume-in-a-bag. The Daily News says that on Wednesday night’s Tonight Show, Emilia Clarke (the actress who plays Daenerys Targaryen/Khaleesi on Game of Thrones) explained that the reason Madonna’s Purim costume was so good was because it was the real thing.
Emilia had received an email from an HBO publicist asking if she’d be willing to loan Madonna hone of her dresses from GoT, and since she can read between the lines – that Madonna doesn’t ask, she DEMANDS – she agreed and let her wear it. Good move, Emilia; it’s always better to keep Madge on your good side lest you wake up in an ice-filled bathtub with your kidneys missing and all the youth drained from your face.
So Madonna was able to wear the real dress from GoT, but had to accessorize with those cheap tacky Dollar Tree dragons? HBO couldn’t slip her a couple real ones? Or maybe they were too afraid the real dragons would be returned to them with their little faces all plumped up like a blob fish after Madonna had them injected them full of fillers to get rid of their wrinkly dragon skin (that’s it).
