It’s finally here! After a 26-second teaser clip was released last week (and the internet shat upon itself), Madonna’s new video for her 2nd single ‘Girl Gone Wild‘ from her 12th studio album ‘MDNA‘ releasing on March 26th has just premiered. My opinion on the video?
I have to admit I didn’t care much for the song and the relatively corny lyrics, but this one turned out to be one of those songs you end up loving cuz of the video, and Madonna has done it again! The Mert and Marcus directed clip is an erotic, rather homoerotic extravaganza with Madonna looking and dancing (yes..there’s DANCING) like only she could! She’s 53, and it’s precisely moves and videos like these that remind us why she’s still the reigning Queen Of Pop, 30 years after she took over the throne. The video’s a throwback to classics like ‘Vogue‘, ‘Human Nature‘, ‘Justify My Love‘ and ‘Erotica‘, and yet it’s as relevant as it could possibly be. She pushed the envelope yet again, and although it’s difficult to predict the fate of the album, considering that it’s been met with mixed reactions so far, when it comes to videos and the moves, Madonna’s still got enough chutzpah to pulverize the Rihannas and Gagas to pulp.
