Madonna's Controversial "What It Feels Like for a Girl" DVD Single Set for Release April 24th
April 23, 2001 Directed by Madonna's husband Guy Ritchie, "What It Feels
Like for a Girl" (which was banned by MTV and VH-1 but received limited play on
Oxygen and AOL) features Madonna in a series of unusual situations, such as her
character stealing a car and blowing up a gas station. Madonna says
that she hopes to "make people ask questions and open
dialogues" with the video. The DVD is closed captioned, presented in linear
PCM for best sound quality and will be priced at $9.95.
The release also coincides with the announcement of
Madonna's first concert tour in seven years to take place this summer.
In case you're keeping score, "What It Feels Like for a Girl" is the
first retail release of new video material since last year's "Music" DVD single,
which recently received gold certification for sales. "What It Feels Like for a Girl"
also joins two other previously released video singles -- 1998's "Ray Of Light" and
1990's "Justify My Love," which was certified platinum eight times.
On the video front, Madonna has received a Grammy Award for Best Short Form Video, Best Video of
the year (MTV) and the Video Vanguard Award (MTV) for lifetime
achievement. Madonna's music home videos include "Madonna," "Live - The Virgin Tour,"
"Ciao Italia - Live," "Justify My Love,"
"The Immaculate Collection," "The Girlie Show - Live Down Under," "Ray of
Light," "The Video Collection 93:99" and "Music."
