The music video starts with shots of the New York skyline, the Staten Island Ferry, and character close-ups. Madonna plays a teenager, who is seen walking along a lane. Then it shows her thinking about her father, played by Danny Aiello, and how much he loves her. She then sees her boyfriend, played by actor Alex McArthur, coming along. The images are juxtaposed with shots of Madonna dancing and singing in a small, darkened studio. Madonna then moves away from her friends, who warn her from her boyfriend. She and her boyfriend spend a romantic evening together on a barge where they reflect upon their lives after watching an elderly couple. Then Madonna finds out that she is pregnant and after much hesitation tells her father. They have a few hours of tension between them. Her father eventually accepts the pregnancy, and the final scene is a re-conciliatory embrace between father and daughter. —Peter-Patrick76 (email@example.com)
Video of life, love and a strong message about keeping her baby!
"Papa Don't Preach" is a strong song and video from Madonna as it has a message of life. The music video shot in New York follows the material girl as a teen who's in a relationship of love and passion. And it intersect showing her life with daddy(actor Danny Aiello) who has conflict and tension with his daughter even more so after he finds out about her pregnancy. The video is also mixed with Madonna dancing in a background black like studio. Still the actions and words of this song are powerful as it's maybe a VOTE to be pro life, as one knows Madonna was always blunt and outspoken.
