MATERIAL GIRL IN A POLITICAL WORLD: MADONNA PLANS VIDEO TO PROTEST WAR, BUSH

**Exclusive**

Madonna is hoping to cause maximum controversy with a new video from her
forthcoming CD, AMERICAN LIFE, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.

Editing is in progress on a musical video concept which insiders say may
be the most shocking anti-war, anti-Bush statement yet to come from the
showbusiness industry.

"She's taking it all the way this time," one source said from Los
Angeles over the weekend, "pushing all of the buttons... It is a
sweeping political commentary on the modern 'American Dream' and how
'nothing is what is seems.'"

The song will be released to radio next week.

Dressed in commando fatigues, Madonna throws grenades as the techno
terror beat pounds, claims a source. Limb-less men and women are
reportedly shown, with bloody babies.

One disturbing clip features Iraqi children.

"The video escalates into a mad frenzy depicting the catastrophic
repercussion and horror of war."

Madonna spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg did not return repeated calls seeking
comment.

The shock film for AMERICAN LIFE comes as Madonna returns to the musical
spotlight with a CD of original songs, set for an April release.

"AMERICAN LIFE is about freedom of speech," claims an insider. "It
examines not only war, greed and ego, but it's self-reflective also.
Madonna rejects her 'Material Girl' image once and for all, and warns of
life in a material world."
