Madonna celebrates Purim in Charlie Chaplin costume

Be it Madonna or Esther, as she is known in her Kabbalah circles, Saturday night she answered only to Charlie Chaplin.

Madonna celebrated Purim in New York City on March 19th in drag as Charlie Chaplin (TMZ has the photo).  Tipping her hat to the classic movie star, she donned a black mustache for the annual Jewish festival.  Whether she heard the mandatory Megillah reading while waving her groggor is up for debate, but I’m guessing the commandment to be joyously drunk wasn’t a problem and Madonna never has an issue with costumes.

In previous years, she’s shown up in army gear, what looked like her daughter’s school uniform, and the controversial nun’s habit accompanied by Guy Ritchie as the Pope.
