Reasons to laugh at a little monster:
Little monsters: “Madonna copied gaga, she is smoking in a video”.
Response: Madonna’s Bad Girl video, from 1993.
Yeah, “bad girl”, same theme of Girl Gone Wild, but from a different approach.
Little monsters: “Madonna copied Gaga in Alejandro. Look at those dancers in high-heels”.
Response: Madonna’s Justify My Love, from 1990 had men cross-dressing, wearing tights, pantyhose and heels. She did it in 1990 - 20 years before that burrito song by Gaga.
Or what about Madonna in 1991?
Once reductive, always reductive. Lady gaga’s Alejandro:
Little monsters: “Now you have to admit. When Madonna cries and her eye mask dissolves in her tears, that is a copy of a picture of gaga”.
Response: You mean like in the beautiful and more realistic Take a Bow video by Madonna, from 1995? You know, that scene Madonna is crying and her make-up is dissolving in her tears? Gotcha.
No wonder why so many little monsters commit suicide. I mean, if you are a complete moron and you insist in sharing your uneducated, moronic and ignorant comments with the world, don’t call it bullying when we point out you guys are complete morons. You ask for it. It’s not like you were born sharing your thoughts with the world. You have the option to sit, shut the fuck up and just watch and learn.
The perfect synthesis of the girl Gone Wild video was published on madonnaisthebest:
This video is 100% Madonna.
Every little reference in the GIRL GONE WILD video traces back to Madonna herself.
This video is Madonna’s ultimate commentary on a pop culture phenomenon - the viral “reductive” comment made by herself was just an indicative of what was coming.
They all try to do what Madonna has done (you know who they are), they blatantly copy her videos, her music, her style, her career stunts. But at the end, they all come off as a “reductive”, simplified, cheap imitation of Madonna.
With the Girl Gone Wild video, Madonna gives the ultimate “fuck off” to all the disrespectful wannabes who have stolen some iconic moments of her brilliant, unique and groundbreaking career as opposed to paying homage.
With this video, Madonna accomplishes what all these bitches have been trying to do for years with no success: Madonna references herself in a video that exuberates sex, guilt and pleasure without trying too hard.
You see Madonna embodying a few of her past incarnations, blending them with her current self, and the result is an amazingly stunning video.
Any comparison with any other newer pop singer is just an ugly display of ignorance. The video is 100% Madonna in every way possible.
Platinum blond bombshell? Check. Good times, Madonna, good times. Justify My Love, anyone?
Black and White video? Check. It takes me to Oh Father and its religious theme, not to mention Justify My Love - with its exuberant sensuality.
Guys in high heels and pantyhose? Check. Madonna circa 1991, Rolling Stone. Oh, did I mention Justify My Love? Or did everybody forget about it? Cross-dressing (guys in heels, and other “girly” elements) was one of the reasons why that video caused so much controversy in 1990!
Also, let’s not forget that there’s a mild-er ”bondage” reference, already done by Madonna in Erotica and Human Nature. The athletic Madonna humping walls? Done that too.
I mean, GGW is the ultimate fuck off to wannabes. With this video, Madonna is saying: “That’s how you copy me”. She is teaching them all a lesson on how to do Madonna.
Not to mention other not-so-obvious similarities with Madonna’s old habits: this is a music video directorial debut of photographers. Just like Madonna has been doing since the 80s - watching photographers natural talents for image and inviting (sometimes forcing them - ask Herb Ritts) to direct her videos - a risk not to many big time artists take.
So yeah, make a fool of yourselves. Say Madonna is copying __________ (insert name of a wannabe icon here).
