Madonna tops 'The Billboard 100 Greatest Music Video Artist of All Time List'

In honor of Tonight's MTV Music Video Awards August 30th, 2020 Billboard has published 'The 100 Greatest Music Video Artist of All Time List!' And of course, Madonna is Number 1, here's their explanation.

Why She's a Video Icon: Ascending to era-defining supremacy shortly after MTV itself, Madonna's high-concept videos - which channeled old Hollywood while paving a provocative visual path into the future - were an integral part of her ever-changing image and the meticulous control she exercised around it.

The MTV Classic: The satirical "Material Girl" and controversial "Like a Prayer" are equally impactful, but the David Fincher-directed "Vogue" - with its life-affirming alchemy of old-school glamour, ball culture choreography and sumptuous cinematography - stands as her finest visual moment.

Worth YouTubing: "Open Your Heart," with its playful subversion of the male gaze via an art deco peep show, is an early and effective distillation of her endlessly analyzed, celebrated, vilified, and imitated take on sexuality and ownership.

@James: oooh! Get you!


The video for 'Open Your Heart' was and is incredible and much overlooked these days, but it was nothing to do with 'the male gaze' - which doesn't exist, and is a phrase which comes from a bizarre bit of fake academia.

Madonna explained at the time what the video was about and she didn't use any claptrap phrases like 'subverting the male gaze', as any fan can attest, and as could any proper music journalist.

Her contemporaneous explanation is worth far more than that of someone getting paid to play buzzword bingo to make Billboard look on board.
