Madonna - Girl Gone Wild (Official Video)



Lyrically, the song addresses a "good girl gone wild" singing about her "burning hot desire" to have some fun.[33] It was compared to singer Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (1983), with lyrics like "Girls, they just wanna have some fun" and "The room is spinning / It must be the Tanqueray / I'm about to go astray / My inhibitions gone away".[34] In the intermediate verses, Madonna utters "forgive me", which is a Catholic term used as a sexual reference. The lyrics, once placed in the context of Madonna's career "attains a new meaning" according to Josh Haigh from Attitude magazine. Explaining it, he said that the meaning behind the lyrics was how Madonna, being a Catholic girl herself, decided that she would not be tied down by anyone else's rules, and consequently became one of the most recognizable musical artists.[27]




Madonna - Girl Gone Wild (Official Video)



Madonna's first performance of "Girl Gone Wild" was on The MDNA Tour (2012) as the concert's opening track. The performance was choreographed by Jason Young and Alison Faulk, along with dancer Derrell Bullock, who assisted as supervisor. According to Faulk, Madonna asked Bullock to experiment with the concept of "girl gone wild", and come up with a routine and style of his own. He wanted to find a story with the dancing and presented his moves to Madonna the next day. The singer also wanted to experiment with the concept of Catholic church, along with monks and gargoyles. Her message behind it was that of freedom, "people getting to do whatever they wanted to". Four dancers from Brooklyn, adept at bone breaking dance, were enlisted as backup crew for the performance. Young recalled that they could "create these abstract, very animalistic shapes. What they can do with their arms is unbelievable. Anything that most people can do in front of their bodies, they do it behind their bodies." The dancing required the boys to put on heels like Kazaky in the music video. Most of them refused to abide by it, resulting in Madonna giving them a choice to put the heels and dance or leave the show. The dancers complied and learned the choreography.[96]


Shawn Kellner from the Chicago Music Magazine praised the costumes and the dancing, while Jodi Duckett from The Morning Call felt that the "characters that looked like Tibetan monks [...], the gonging of bells and Madonna arriving in a gilded cage" made the performance seem "very 'Da Vinci Code' like".[98][100] Kitty Empire from The Guardian received the usage of guns negatively, saying that Madonna's son Rocco would be "perfectly blasé about the prospect of the former Mrs. Ritchie shooting her way out of a confessional booth with a machine gun, as she does on the set opener".[107] Barry Walters from MuuMuse called the opening sequence as "manic" and called it a "power punch" sequence along with "Revolver".[108] Barbara Vandenburgh from The Arizona Republic called the performance as "raucous".[109] Shirley Halperin from The Hollywood Reporter was confused as how the religious iconography portrayed during the performance was tied to the song's theme of a "girl gone wild".[110] San Jose Mercury News editor Jim Harrington called the selection of "Girl Gone Wild" as "commonplace".[111] Jim Farber from New York Daily News described the performance as transitioning from a girl gone wild to "girl gone bloodthirsty" with the subsequent violence depictions.[112] Ben Crandell from Florida's Sun-Sentinel newspaper observed that Madonna turned around the "solemn" introduction to a dance number with "Girl Gone Wild". According to her the performance portrayed Madonna as "fashionable, powerful, but vulnerable sex toy", which became "an ongoing theme for the night".[113]


The video: Madonna's pulling a U-turn. While she transformed "Give Me All Your Luvin," her first single off her upcoming album, MDNA, into a boppy, candy-colored video, she's gone in a different direction for the new video: Dark, dominatrix-y, and shamelessly self-referential. The predictably controversial clip for the single "Girl Gone Wild" (watch below) opens with Madonna reciting a modified version of the Catholic Act of Contrition, cuts to a man demonstrating his oral fixation with a gun, and then to a group of male backup dancers wearing panty hose and high heels (Ukrainian YouTube sensations Kasaky). But what makes it "bonkers-good," critics say, are the multiple references to Madonna's best videos: From the "Vogue"-like black-and-white close-ups to religious imagery straight out of "Like a Prayer" to the wall-to-wall writhing evocative of "Erotica."


Madonna is making men go crazy as a wild temptress in a teaser clip for her 'Girl Gone Wild' video. Although the official clip has yet to be released, Queen Madge is giving everyone a taste of the second music video time from her 'MDNA' album, and it seems as if she's going back to her roots for some inspiration behind the intoxicating clip.


The 'Girl Gone Wild' teaser video, which is shot entirely in black and white, opens with a fuzzy, sped-up shot of Madonna. The songstress has her arms outstretched up against a wall as she twitch-dances to the beat, looking like a wild animal that is fiending to get out on the dancefloor. The "wild" theme continues as Madge's girating silhouette is pictured chained up and later on, when the glamorous songstress is seen posing in a sexy fashion next to two buff dudes as she sings.


'Girl Gone Wild' marks Madonna's second music video off of her 'MDNA' album (which drops March 26). Unlike her exuberant, M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj-assisted 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' clip, 'Girl Gone Wild' finds Madge flying solo and getting quite sultry as a wild child. Stay tuned with PopCrush for the entire music video once it drops.
