Forget one-hit wonder. Madonna’s a three-decade wonder — an elusive honor generally reserved for the legendary and uncannily talented. And her new video, “Give It 2 Me” — off her new LP, “Hard Candy” — is basically The Immaculate Collection in music video form.
The beat is like “Like A Virgin” remastered, while the mod/burlesque feel and black-and-white footage channels 1990’s “Vogue.” The cowgirl hat takes us back to “Music,” and the hipster workout gear triggers vivid flashbacks of Madge’s 2006 “Confessions” tour. Plus, she’s thrown in some new choreo, an extended cameo by Pharrell and enough jewelry to give Mr. T an inferiority complex. We’re officially sold. Again.
