This is August’s edition of Comet Over Hollywood’s classic film references in music videos.
2012 marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death on August 5, 1962. Turner Classic Movies is dedicating today to Marilyn Monroe with a whole day of her film’s during their 10th annual Summer Under the Stars Salute.
As we all know, everyone and their mother has imitated Marilyn Monroe in some shape or form. Comet has even already spotlighted two music videos where Lana Del Rey and Madonna both paid tribute to the 1950s sex symbol.
Well 27 years after Madonna dressed up like Marilyn in “Material Girl,” the singer paid tribute to her again in her 2012 single “Give Me All Your Luvin’.”
But Madonna isn’t the only one in the video who donned short blond curls and a sexy white dress. Her two famous back-up singers in the song, MIA and Nicki Minaj also dress up like Monroe.
The Marilyn moment happens at 2:08 to 2:54 minutes into the video:

Love this! Thanks for the contribution to the blogathon!
This is a great tribute to Monroe…although it is depressing to see that Madonna never really ages…
