Music Videos # 1

Madonna - American Life (the uncensored version)

Directed by Jonas Akerlund, this is one of the strongest Madonna videos but it was also one of the causes for the backlash she suffered in 2003, due to its political anti-war messages during a very sensitive time (America was about to invade Iraq). Full of comments towards not only the war but also the material world most western people live in, it eventually suffered a lot of cuts. Then, on its first day of release, she ended up pulling out the final version and replacing it by a very weak and bland video, where she basically was standing still and singing in front of a variety of flags.
