Madonna’s “Turn Up The Radio” Video: Review Revue

Today Madonna showed us that her favorite time to turn up the radio is while driving through Italy and picking up hot, super-fit men along the way! Her latest video, directed by Tom Munro, offers a fun road trip through Florence and, eventually, the Tuscan countryside. But Madge being Madge, there is, of course, plenty of eye candy to distract us from the usual sites — mainly in the forms of said young gents, and the Material Girl’s quite shapely legs. Head below for our roundup of what the Internet had to say about the “Turn Up The Radio” video.

:: According to The Huffington Post, the lesson learned in “Turn Up The Radio” is this: “When the world starts to get you down, just take a drive through the Italian countryside with your attractive male driver. Oh, and don’t forget pick up a few vagabonds along the way for an epic backseat dance party. Madonna looks like she’s truly living la dolce vita in the new music video for her latest MDNA single…”

:: Metro was hooked on Madonna’s look in the vid: “The 53-year-old songstress, sporting a giant hairstyle, looks fabulous in a pair of figure-hugging leather shorts and a clingy top that exposes her bra as she escapes the paparazzi and climbs into a stylish car.”

:: Vulture gives props: “Congratulations to all the very handsome male models getting their first acting break in this video (especially the trio who show up around the three minute, twenty second mark and really explore the feelings behind that hitchhiker thumb) and also to Madonna, for continuing to look remarkably good in a leotard. She just does.”

:: But while Chart Rigger feels it’s one of Madge’s best clips in ages, he warns, “Dance with Madonna at your own risk, boys. She’ll live for thousands of years, regardless, while you’ll end up dead at 28, face down in a ditch with your boxer briefs around your ankles.”

:: The Improper quips, “Thanks to copious use of soft-focus lenses, Madonna looks as smooth as a 20-year-old.”

:: The Ology digs the vintage feel of the video: “Heavy sigh. Remember a time when pop videos didn’t have to shimmer and sparkle, when you didn’t need choreographed dance routines or outlandish costumes? Remember when cars and cleavage was enough? Madonna clearly does.”

:: Spin‘s keen eye picked up on the following: “The pop queen’s current squeeze, Brahim Zaibat, even pops in for a cameo. Hey, music makes the people get together.”

:: Finally, After Elton offers this: “I’m still trying to figure out why this has an ‘explicit’ warning. I think Madonna crotch shots are considered quaint now.”
