MADONNA: 50 CANDLES, 27 VIDEOS

One thing MADONNA has always been fabulous at is self promotion. She’s also an incredible provocateur. She’s as excellent at that as…well, me.

So it’s particularly fitting that she raised music videos to an actual art form and that hers are some of the best out there.

Included in this vivid video gallery are:

LIKE A VIRGIN (the lion, the canals in Venice and that gorgeous white dress make this a sumptuous feast for the eyes)

MATERIAL GIRL (the ultimate MARILYN MONROE homage – satirizing the DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND musical number from GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES – great glossy pink gown)

LIKE A PRAYER (religious imagery)

EXPRESS YOURSELF (cats and saucers of milk, MADONNA in a pin striped suit grabbing her crotch, muscle bound men – much of it looking like a German expressionist epic from the 30s)

VOGUE (see through lace dress)

JUSTIFY MY LOVE (black and white debauchery)

DON’T CRY FOR ME, ARGENTINA (from the movie EVITA)

BEAUTIFUL STRANGER (from the AUSTIN POWERS sequel)
