Madonna: What It Feels Like For A Girl (2001)



One of Madonna's best videos, What It Feels Like For A Girl, was directed by Guy Ritchie with all locations based in Los Angeles.   While I mostly concentrate on movies and tv show locations, anyone who knows my fascination with Madonna knew I couldn't pass up hunting down these locales!

Here are links to other Madonna video or movie locations and shows:
   Borderline
   Evening With Madonna - Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project
   GAP commercial
   La Isla Bonita
   Like A Prayer (video)
   Like A Prayer (album)
   Material Girl
   Music
   Next Best Thing
   What It Feels Like For A Girl
   Who's That Girl




First up, the motel I found in downtown Los Angeles.   The parking lot is extremely small, I'm surprised they were able to maneuver the car as much as they did in the video.....

Next up, the Ol Kuntz Guest Home is located near Beverly Hills....

The original Johnnie's Broiler burnt down, but it has since been rebuilt.  Not an official location technically, but it works for my purposes here....

Surprisingly, the gas station was the easiest location to find... once again in downtown LA, and yes,  I did get gas there....
