Madonna Offers Up New Video Compilation

Madonna helped pioneer the video music format in the '80s with such classic clips as "Like a Virgin," "Material Girl," and "Express Yourself." In the '90s, she has further explored the medium's boundaries, ranging from such sexually-charged clips as "Erotica" and "Human Nature" to the highly-stylized videos for "Rain" and "Frozen."

A new video compilation, entitled "Madonna: The Video Collection '92-'99" and due out on October 5, collects 14 of the singer's recent clips, dating back to her controversial "Erotica" album and continuing through her recent hit, "Beautiful Stranger" {RealVideo], from the "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" soundtrack.

The anthology will also include the videos for "Bedtime Story," "Take a Bow," "Nothing Really Matters" [RealVideo] and Ray of Light"

[QuickTime], the Jonas Akerlund-directed clip that was named Video of the Year at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.

The tape will also feature the video for "Drowned World/Substitute for Love," a clip that has been previously unavailable in the United States.

Madonna has won 18 MTV Video Music Awards (out of her 55 nominations) as well as the Video Vanguard for lifetime achievement. She is nominated for four Moon Men statuettes at the 1999 VMAs and is also scheduled to be a presenter for the event, which will be broadcast live from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City on September 9 at 8 p.m. (ET).
