THE MDNA WORLD TOUR 2012 – Setlist Spoilers Part 6 – EXCLUSIVE!!!
Since the Confessions Tour, Madonna has always included a political video interlude and this time it’s no different. The Nobody Knows me video interlude from the upcoming MDNA Tour deals with issues such as bullying, intolerance, racism, fascism, injustice and more…
The center video screen features Madonna from the waist up. Her hair is shoulder-length, curly and slightly slicked back. She also wears long black leather gloves, a black bra and leather straps. They went for a soft make up look to accentuate the special effects of the whole video.
During the first “I’ve had so many lives, since I was a child” part, bits and pieces of older Madonna pictures are pasted onto the actual video. The only appropriate way to describe it, is some kind of collage. As if someone had cut out different pictures from magazines to recreate a new one. The ending of the first part “How many times I’ve died” deals with how the press has tried to bury Madonna’s career.
Using the same “collage” technique, Madonna impersonates different people who have played an important part, positive or negative, in our history: Trayvon Martin, Marine le Pen, Sarah Palin, the Pope, Hitler and more. The left and right video screen will depict images and video footage from all the events Madonna is referring to. Halfway through, images of different teenagers who commited suicide as a result of bullying are shown for a few seconds, along with a RIP message and their name. One of those names is Brandon Bitner.
The last segment of the backdrop features positive images of people kissing: different races, straight couples, gay couples, even older couples and parents with their children. The video has a very strong message and won’t leave people untouched.
Wow. A very different approach! Brilliant
