Madonna Premieres New Music Video for “God Control”
- Mid of this month, the Queen of pop, Madonna's new album “Madame X” was released for the first time in four years.
The album reached No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 and No. 2 on the UK Albums chart.
From the album, she has released a new music video for “God Control” directed by Jonas Åkerlund.
The clip is inspired from the Pulse Nightclub shooting. The incident is Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida in 2016.
Madonna said of the video, “I want to draw attention through my platform as an artist to a problem in America that is out of control and is taking the lives of innocent people. This crisis can end if our legislators act to change the laws that fail to protect us all. This is your wake up call. Gun violence disproportionately affects children, teenagers and the marginalized in our communities … Honor the victims and demand GUN CONTROL. NOW. Volunteer, stand up, donate, reach out. Wake up and insist on common-sense gun safety legislation … Innocent lives depend on it.”
- She added, “The fixation that our country is so endangered by Central America; like, why aren’t we focused on gun control? That’s the real danger, that’s a way bigger problem than people crossing the border. I can’t believe he (Donald Trump) is so focused on his damn wall in Mexico.”
