A Breakdown of the Who, Where, and Possibly Why in Ariana Grande's "God Is a Woman" Video
Ariana Grande has come through with another music video, and this time she's shaking the table with some seriously trippy visuals — and we're into it. Not only does the "God Is a Woman" video feature a surprise vocal cameo from Madonna, but there are also screaming lemmings, Greek and Roman mythological creatures, and more. "God Is a Woman" is not just a female empowerment bop; it's Grande's anthem embracing her femininity and her sexuality and combining those themes with spirituality in a visually rich and symbolic-as-all-hell music video.
There's so much to unpack in the music video, it might seem a bit much. Luckily, I am more than ready to tackle the challenge of decoding the references and have included some of the standouts here. Enjoy!
