Madonna is a tough chick. What It Feels Like for a Girl is a sweet song. The video for the song, however, is anything BUT. The third single from Madonna's #1 album, Music, What It Feels Like For A Girl is one of the highlights of the disc. It reached #23 on the Hot 100 in the Spring of 2001. The song itself finds Madonna talking to her fella about how the world is different and if he wondered what it feels like for a girl...... in this world. Starting off with a sample from the movie The Cement Garden using the voice of actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, the song rolls along at a lilting pace, drawing you in seductively to every line. BUT when Madonna was ready to make a video, she took that girl power and amped it up to 11 by using a pulsing, mostly instrumental version of the song and, with then-husband Guy Richie, producing a video with such violent images it was banned from MTV. Now this was controversial because overt sexuality and male violence was never a problem for MTV before, but to see a woman taser a man or run into a car or light a gas station on fire... well that was too hot for tv! Ha. The video is amazy, to say the least, and I love the old woman who plays her grandmother that she rescues form the "Ol Kuntz Guest Home" (hilarious) in her car with the plates that say "PUSSY" and "CAT". I truly think this video is one of the best ever made. Take a look at Madonna's What It Feels Like for a Girl.
