Not Reductive At All: Madonna // “Girl Gone Wild” Video

Crotch-grabs! Guys in heels! Homoeroticism! Madonna! I weighed in on my review for Idolator, but naturally, I had to share it here, too.

Because it’s Madonna.

Madonna — “Girl Gone Wild” video

Here’s what I said:

Sure, you could call “Girl Gone Wild” “reductive” for the way it recalls past Madge vids like “Vogue” and “Justify My Love,” but it still feels fresh and has an identity all its own that aligns perfectly with the Material Girl’s signature blend of sex, style, and sophistication. The homoeroticism alone is enough to ensure that Madge certainly hasn’t lost her edge when it comes to pushing those hot buttons.

I’ll definitely be watching this girl (and her men) go wild a few times, but it fits right into her ouvre nicely, and actually makes the song better. (It’s growing on me — a little, at least.)
