: So Madonna edited herself and put out a video of American Life without tossing grenades on to the President’s lap. I just watched it on AOL.
So she wimped out. She sold out. She wasn’t true to her art. If she really cared about her message, if she really believed it, wouldn’t she go ahead and deliver it and tell the world to f’ off?
No, instead, she cut out the offending images and chose to whine and complain (see post below) about how she was muzzled.
Muzzled, hell. She was greedy. She didn’t want to hurt her CD sales. She didn’t want to do a Dixie Chick.
So we get a video just as boring as the song. But here’s the good news for Madonna: More close-ups!
