Madonna re-enacted Orlando tragedy in a new MV


Madonna has re-enacted the massacre at Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub in her graphic music video for a song God’s Control. The singer has released a video just weeks before the third anniversary of the tragic massacre that took 49 lives. The eight-minute video, which plays out in reverse across an evening, depicts a shooter opening fire on terrified people inside a nightclub, intercut with scenes of Madonna who shows a verbal protest by typing the provocative lyrics of the song on the typewriter, while people in the club are slowly dying, covered with glitter and blood. Reflecting on the lack of action on gun control in the US, Madonna sings: “When they talk reforms, it makes me laugh/They pretend to help, it makes me laugh/I think I understand why people get a gun/I think I understand why we all give up/Every day they have a kind of victory/Blood of innocence, spread everywhere/They say that we need love/But we need more than this.” The end of the video intercuts scenes of the singer being robbed at gunpoint with footage from real-life protests against gun control.
