Look-a-like A Virgin
“If this pose seems familiar then you probably remember Madonna’s video for Like A Virgin,” the UK Metro writes today. “Now, 25 years on, the Queen of Pop’s daughter, Lourdes, has re-created the iconic look. Footage apparently taken from a shoot for Madonna’s latest video, “Celebration“, shows the 12-year-old, right, dressed in a very similar guise to her mother’s outfit for the 1984 video. But perhaps Madonna, 51, realised the look could offend some fans and it was removed from the final edit.”
Metro almost got it right. You probably need to be some sort of Madonna fan to tell that the outfit does not actually come from the Mary Lambert directed video, but from Madonna’s MTV Awards performance. No need to be a huge fan, though, to recognize the look that one of the Sticky & Sweet Tour dancers sports during “She’s Not Me” as one of the Madonna wannabees.
Different story if you are a Madonna Triber. You already know that Lola was indeed filmed as the “Virgin” bride, and you also know that director Jonas Akerlund worked on more than one edit of the new videoclip.
A second version is set to come out in a few days, and will include footage from the fans that were filmed in Milan and Barcelona. Click on the image below to enlarge the clipping from today’s “Metro”.
