Madonna's "Burning Up" Is Our Music Video of the Day

PAPERMAG


It's not Oldie But Goodie Friday, but, in honor of Madonna's 53rd birthday today, we're making her 1983 hit "Burning Up" our music video of the day. The video, directed by Steve Baron, includes the Queen of Pop writhing in the middle of a street, hanging out on a boat and playing with a blue laser beam. It also features her in her East Village grunge princess days (which was possibly the most influential of all Madonna's looks) with styling by Maripol and makeup by her longtime friend Debi Mazar. Happy birthday, Ms. Ciccone! You're on fire.
