Last Tuesday, Madonna teased her blatantly controversial “God Control” music video. The wait is now over. Today, the pop singer released her gun control-preaching propaganda piece and it’s just as tactless as expected.
The video gave a disclaimer of its disturbing contents. It then switched to a scene of Madonna writing the lyrics of “God Control” onto a typewriter while listening to a news report of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. The video flashed back and forth between Madonna typing and people getting gunned down at a nightclub. About 2 and a half minutes into the video, the entire Pulse Nightclub shooting was reenacted in gruesome detail.
Verse - America - Action - Thereof - Violence
The first verse explicitly criticized America’s action -- or lack thereof -- against gun violence. Madonna stated, “Our nation lied, we lost respect [...] When they talk reforms, it makes me laugh.” Madonna especially pointed out the tragedy of school shootings, singing, “Get the kids ready, take them to school [...] Blood of innocence, spread everywhere.” Of course, she ended the verse with a call to action: “we need more than this.”
