For the 'American Life' era Madonna showed both her hugely controversial side mixed with a more wholesome side. It was yet another reinvention that included Madonna escaping execution, an explosive look at Bush's reign in the US, the world's flags, Hollywood actresses and flowery dresses.

The AL original video is really powerful and she looks so good with dark hair .

I wonder if she regrets pulling the video ? The album did absolute nothing in America anyways.

There is a definite divide between the quality of these videos.

Die Another Day is my favourite of the lot. The original American Life video is a very tough watch in how controversial it is and how bold the message is. Hollywood is decent. The 2nd American Life video and Love Profusion though... Not her best!

American Life

1) American Life (original)

3) Hollywood
4) American Life (flags)
5) Love Profusion

I wish the original 'American Life' was on Madonna's official YouTube. sad.gif An uncomfortable watch at times but it's successful in getting its message across, highlighting the state of politics and the media. I love Madonna's look in this video, I do wish they could have kept the parts where she's rallying the women as I think they could stand up on their own.

I'm a big Bond fan so the many references in 'Die Another Day' to the film franchise's then-40th anniversary is much appreciated. I like how it works as an independent Madonna video too with Madonna at war with her inner self.

The video for 'Love Profusion'... it's a copy of a fragrance advert although I think it looks more like an advertisement for fabric conditioner. Wasn't this when Madonna was into writing children books? It figures.

I am becoming obsessed with the original American Life video after revisiting it for this. What a f***ing statement.
