Lindy McDowell: Really Madonna, it’s time now to dump these arms

Calls for arms decommissioning took on a whole new urgency this week — following publication of those pictures of Madonna.

The pics show that while she has the body and face of a woman half her age, from the shoulders down she is Barry McGuigan.

She has found herself being compared to anatomical information charts. And that weird artist who puts preserved human bodies on display.

There’s an inevitable contrast too with that new American icon Michelle Obama whose penchant for sleeveless tops has prompted her husband to come out with the immortal line about the First Lady’s right to bare arms.

What’s Madonna to do?

Sleeves would seem to be the obvious answer.

If only it had been so simple for poor General de Chastelain.
