Madonna Sings From Behind Bars in Violent Teaser for Some 'Secret Project'
The chilling black-and-white clip begins with Madonna behind bars, as what is seemingly her rendition of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," America's de factor national anthem, plays in the background:
My country, 'tis of thee Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride, From ev'ry mountainside Let freedom ring!Wearing a black trench coat, blonde wig and fishnet globes, Madonna is captive in a cell, one of many in some sort of incarceration center, fenced in by barbed wires.
Then the clip hits a climax, cutting to quick shots of Madonna being battered: first tied up by a man, then dragged through the halls by armed guards, who throw her down on the ground. As the screen turns to black, the singer asks: "Are you with me?"
The teaser points fans to a site – artforfreedom.com – that holds a message:
Madonna & Steven Klein invite you to start your own revolution of love. We have created this platform to give people around the world an opportunity to answer the question: "What does freedom mean to you?"Could this all mean the Queen of Pop has new music on the way? Seems we'll find out when the 'project' comes out Sept. 24.
