Madonna Uses Elliott Smith's 'Between the Bars' For Protest Against Prisons

"But Madonna, it's a song about the false promises and alcoholism, not prison."

In Madonna's fake British accent:

"But dahhhling, it's called 'Between the Bahhhs'; it's perfect!"

Madonna's latest endeavor presents us with #SecretProjectRevolution, a 17-minute short film that will complement Art For Freedom, a "global digital initiative designed to fuel free speech." And nothing screams freedom like Elliott Smith's melancholic whisper, right?! Watch the Queen of Pop's awkward and dramatic recycling of Either/Or classic "Between the Bars" below, and stay tuned as she might follow up with a protest song against racism in prison with "Color Bars".
