VIDEO: 'Justify My Love,' 25 Years Later – A Short History of the Song, the Controversy and, Yes, the Sex

[BRIGHTCOVE "4588088424001"] How much controversy can you cram into five minutes? If you're Madonna, enough to make your new single a hit. On Nov. 6, 1990 – 25 years ago this week – Madonna released the first single from The Immaculate Collection, "Justify My Love." In the month that followed, Madonna filmed a video for the song, submitted it to MTV (which promptly rejected it), and then rode the resulting controversy all the way to the bank. The video was ultimately sold as a "video single," and it sold well.
