Madonna’s “Express Yourself”
Madonna loves to create controversy and she’s managed to do that for much of her career. Her 1989 video “Express Yourself” ruffled a lot of feathers with accusations of Madonna of exploiting female sexuality. Based on the 1927 film Metropolis, the Material Girl played the part of a chained masochist flanked by muscular men who were at her every beck and call. Not to mention, the budget was a whopping $5 million. Directed by David Fincher, “Express Yourself” remains one of the most expensive music videos ever created.
