Madonna and Quentin Tarantino had very different careers, however, one of Madonna’s songs wouldn’t exist without Tarantino. Additionally, Madonna wanted Tarantino to direct a music video for the song. Here’s how the world reacted to the track.
Madonna ‘exploded’ writing this Quentin Tarantino-inspired song
Madonna and Tarantino go back a long way. For example, the characters in Tank dogs discussed “Like a Virgin”, coming to an obscene conclusion about its meaning. In addition, a character in pulp Fiction wish she had a sexy belly like the queen of pop had in her music video for “Lucky Star”. Madonna appeared in the director segment of the anthology film Four bedrooms. Tarantino directed the last segment of the film.
Later, Madonna will be inspired by Tarantino for her album MDNA. In an interview with The time of India, Madonna discussed the creation of the album. “I felt like I had to go back to the basics of the guitar and the simplicity of raw emotions. I had a great feeling writing a song and playing guitar or singing “I’m A Sinner”. “

She said she had similar emotions while recording “Gang Bang”. “When I was doing totally improvised vocals for ‘Gang Bang’ in a play, I felt like I just had to scream to let myself be possessed by this kind of Russ Meyer character, Quentin Tarantino,” she said. For context, Meyer was a director who made many daring and violent films that often featured strong heroines. He is best known for the exploitation film Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! The main character of “Gang Bang” kills someone she hates, making her similar to the heroines of the Meyer and Tarantino movies.
Why Madonna wrote a violent song
While “Gang Bang” is all about violence, Madonna revealed that the emotions behind the song weren’t serious. “It was all very ironic, but I just left,” she said. “Obviously I had to get some things off my chest. I was like an animal that comes out of a cage and wants to express all kinds of emotions.
