Music Video Friday: Madonna – Material Girl

Today’s video is Madonna’s Material Girl.

Madonna’s 58th birthday is next week so I posted a list of My Top Ten Madonna Songs yesterday & figured I better post a video today. Obviously, there are loads of Madonna videos to choose from. I’ve chosen Material Girl because I have a huge soft spot for it since my best friend & I used to act out music videos together & this was one of our favorites. Shut up – I was young when this was out! It’s okay to be a dork when you’re not yet a teenager. 😉

I’m sure I had no idea at the time that Madonna was acting out Marilyn Monroe doing Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend from the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I’ve still not seen that film but I really should since I loved this video so much. Keith Carradine plays Madonna’s admirer who pretends to be poor to impress her since she’s NOT actually a “Material Girl” and wants a simple romance instead of a guy who showers her with expensive gifts. Riiiiiight. Okay, I have to admit that I’d go for the poor, sweet guy as well. I’m not a Material Girl either!

I always thought that one guy in this video was trying to bite Madonna’s boob (the one she whacks with the fan). You think weird things as a kid… Anyway, here’s the video! I still love it & all its 80’s cheesiness. Have a great weekend, everyone! 🙂
