Third Time Lucky?

It seems that Madonna's latest album "Confessions on a Dance Floor" is jinxed. First a horse riding accident in August caused three cracked ribs, a fractured collar bone, and a hand fracture. The album is due out on 15 November, and it was felt that the injuries might interfere with video shoots or promotional activities.

It now appears that the album has upset Israeli rabbis because of a track called Isaac about a 16th Century mystic called Yitzhak Luria. The rabbis who guard his tomb say it is forbidden to use his name for profit, and that Madonna will receive "punishment from the heavens" if she goes ahead.

Nae luck eh?
