Yesterday, December 21st, but 35 years ago, Madonna reached USA’s number one with her song ¨Like a Virgin¨, the first of many.
A night not
to be forgotten, because it opened the doors to the upcoming storm. The video
clip was a before and after in her career: armed with crucifixes (something
that angered many religious people) she provocatively walked the Venice canals
and offered us thinly veiled sexual fantasies with a lion that walked in St.
the woman who broke through all the barriers was that bride dressed in white
who seduced her husband, a stranger to the viewer. A virgin far from it.
content with the result, Madonna discovers another face of herself in all her
subsequent performances, a character that will propel her career to the
unthinkable and that will give her the strength to go out and conquer the
who in 1984 seduced the camera and presented a free, empowered, open and sexual
woman, without any hesitation and who gave a boost to female sexuality in the
music industry ( the fact that a product was generated from it is another story).
What remains for us today is to celebrate an artist who broke all the moulds, shook the world and gave us one of the most brilliant moments in the music industry.
