This video became another video single behind Justify My Love, Erotica, and Music!! Her. Videos in the early 00s had lots of violence which I guess was inspired by the Mister at the time.
I actually loved this video and thought it was representing the frustration/anger of women from youth to old age and the way they are treated in society. Of course it was violent. I’m pretty sure a LOT of women could relate to the fantasy of running over dickheads/Smashing cars/dicks and doing shit that only “Men” are allowed to do. I was recording it at home while at a gay bar and they stopped the music and showed the video live. Was a good night.
What It Feels Like for a Girl-beautiful solidarity ballad anthem for Lola, Mercy, Esther, Stelle and Madonna herself!
