Music Video Review: "The Edge of Glory" by Madonna

Updated on October 16, 2012

It's official, ladies and gentlemen. Madonna is back! Her latest single, "The Edge of Glory", is an '80s throwback masterpiece. It's about time that Madonna has come to her senses and realize that the whole mother/singer look just wasn't working anymore. No sir, Madonna has returned to her original '80s image which launched her to super stardom.

In "The Edge of Glory", Madonna dons a very hooker-ish costume that just screams "Who's That Girl" and dances around the backdrop of a brownstone walk-up and a fire escape that's flooded in dim-blue lighting. To further distinguish this fine sound from today's garbage, Madonna has included a saxophone solo that is performed by the legendary Clarence Clemons of E Street Band fame. Now how '80s is that? Totally 'rad', plain and simple.

Better pay attention, folks, this could be MTV Music Video Award material methinks. Music video director Joseph Kahn is a genius, he really-....

This ain't Madonna. Who the heck is that? Lady... Gaga, you say? So this is really not a comeback from Madonna....?

This woman can't take a hint at all. She doesn't realize that creativity comes from the brain, your own brain. Inspiration can certainly help in many ways, but beware, there's many people out there who like to twist the word 'inspiration' around and turn it into an excuse so they can get away with theft.

It's kind of like an idiot who steals someone's credit card information. They could just lie and say something like:

Well, I just saw the person holding the credit card in his hand and it inspired me to buy a plane ticket to Tahiti for the weekend. So I quickly jotted the info down on my hand really fast, then I went home and followed what my inspiration told me to do. I didn't steal anything.

If, after reading this analogy, you still think that Lady Caca is a work of art in of herself, you might want to pay visit to some unsanitary bathroom stalls first.

      I agree with you, Lady Gaga tries to differentiate herself from other artists by extremes, but when it comes down to it.....she emulates other artists in all of her songs. Many artists, however, emulate Madonna, as she is the queen, and quite a forerunner when it comes to pushing the envelope.

      Very clever hub...I like that you imply Lady Gaga is ripping off Madonna. I wrote a hub about Lady Gaga, too. Check it out if you get a chance.
