She gyrates. She touches her nana. She does more pelvic thrusts than drunken NYUers at a 'Rocky Horror' screening. And she attempts to crump. I don't care that she's 51: This video made me feel warm and fuzzy. A lot better than most of her recent stuff for the simple fact that she sticks to what she's good at. Pure, unadulterated fun.
Queen of the travelling Circus, let the Celebration begin!
So I've been a Madonna fan almost from the beginning, and I've seen the video twice now before writing this review. What can I say: it's hyper kinetic for sure and follows in the vein of (sort of) the Sorry video, lots of dancing, lots of movement, and micro image editing. Part of me wants to say it's not a proper video like Frozen or Nothing Really Matters or Take A Bow (or Hung Up or Ray of Light or etc), whatever a proper madonna video should be. It's sort or like an adreniline shot to the heart of Madonna's Sticky&Sweet tour dance troupe. There's no story or linear anything, and it's not meant to be Awe-inspiring except in the sheer physical exersion and complexity in movement of Madonna's dancers. The best way I can describe it is Madonna explodes in a transgressive dance rant set off by her wild & out dancers freaking out for the fun of it. Pros: Madonna, obviously, new song, hyper kinetic dancing, wild and off beat dancers, a "I just don't give a f*ck attitude", love the boots, and last but certainly not least a fun, and flexible cameo by M's lovely daughter Lola, and the ridiculously handsome Jesus Luz getting stripped by M. Cons: Kinda has that I'm on tour and didn't take the time to make a proper Madonna video feel (aka jump), not crazy about the the sunglasses and mini skirt dress contraption with shoulder pads get up, not really enough Madonna or images skipping by so fast you really don't get to see anything for a length of time longer than micro seconds, and last but not least M's not using the same music mix as the single Celebration which I thought sounded kinda good. I would have given the new video a 3 out of 5 stars but bumped it up to 4 cause Lola's in there at the end. That and Jesus's chest looks great, good for you M. Now let's see what Revolver's all about! Anybody wanna guess if either Celebration or Revolver will crack the Billboard top ten in the US? And will Madonna show up at the MTV 2009 video awards to promote Celebration? Will the singles go anywhere in the US without serious promo? Peace & Blessings and as Super Awesome Singing Dancing Divas go Make Mine Madonna!
The Queen of Pop Shows Us How it's Done...Again
The Queen does it again. She tears up the dance floor defying age and gravity while still inspiring countless wannabes along the way. It's taken me awhile to warmup to the original version of this song, but the remix has me sold. Is, am, and always will be a true Madonna fan. I apologize in advance for the biased review.
