Madonna unveiled her new video for "God Control," a stirring, politically-charged visual that addresses gun violence in a very literal way, on Wednesday (June 26).
The graphic clip, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, depicts a shooting at a night club while Madonna types out the song lyrics on a typewriter.
"This is what happens when people shoot," Madonna told CNN of viewers who may have a problem with the graphic images. "Understand that this is what happens. Guns kill. A bullet rips through your body, knocks you to the floor and takes your life, and you bleed to death. I mean this is reality."
