Madonna had to correct Quentin Tarantino after Like A Virgin Reservoir Dogs scene

Madonna had to correct Quentin Tarantino after Like A Virgin Reservoir Dogs scene

Quentin Tarantino's explanation of 'Like A Virgin' in Reservoir Dogs was shot down by Madonna just weeks after the film's release.

Quentin Tarantino's explanation of 'Like A Virgin' in Reservoir Dogs was shot down by Madonna just weeks after the film's release.

The crime film - written, directed by and starring Quentin Tarantino - was released in the US on 9 October, 1992, almost 30 years to this day.

In the film, characters discuss the meaning of Madonna's 1984 hit, 'Like A Virgin'.

Now, we all know some men like to mansplain, even if it's about a woman's own work.

However, just weeks after the film's release, Madonna was quick to set the record straight and put Tarantino in his place over his interpretation of the song.

Reservoir Dogs is about a jewellery heist which goes drastically wrong. What starts off as a simple plan turns sour when the group begin to grow paranoid someone within their mix is acting as an informant to the police.

Where does Madonna's 'Like A Virgin' fit into this I hear you ask? Well, in the opening credits and very first scene.

Tarantino - who plays the role of Mr Brown - is sat down around a table with the rest of the group of criminals who begin to dissect the meaning of the song.

Tarantino's character states the 'entire song' is simply about 'a girl who digs a guy with a big dick' and is basically just 'a metaphor for big dicks'.

However, Mr Blonde - played by Michael Madsen - argues: "No it's about a girl who's very vulnerable, she's been f**ked over a few times and then she meets a guy who's very sensitive."

Alas, Mr Blonde is quickly shut down.

Shortly after the film's release, Madonna was quick to take the opportunity to correct the mansplaining views of the film's crooked characters - and perhaps Tarantino's genuine own interpretation of the song himself.

The singer reportedly ended up at the same party as Tarantino while he was touring in Europe for the film and gave him a copy of her fifth album, Erotica, which came out two weeks after Reservoir Dogs.

On the album, the singer is said to have signed: "To Quentin, it’s not about dick. It’s about love. Madonna."

Indeed, in a previous interview with Rolling Stone, Madonna opened up about 'Like A Virgin' being a song about 'how something made [her] feel a certain way - brand-new and fresh'.

She continued: "And everyone else interpreted it as, ‘I don’t want to be a virgin anymore. F**k my brains out!’

"That’s not what I sang at all."
