On April 16, 2003, Madonna released an edited version of the “American Life” video on VH-1.
The edited version (the “flag” version) featured Madonna singing in front of a backdrop of ever-changing flags of different countries.
On March 3, 1989, Madonna’s “Like A Prayer” video premieres on MTV.
The video for “Like A Prayer” features a lingerie-clad Madonna getting frisky with black Jesus, dancing around burning crosses, and the scars of the stigmata on her hands. The Vatican cried heresy and Pepsi backed out of an endorsement.
