A couple of pictures from the photoshoot for the Like a Prayer album, by Herb Ritts:

The Like a Prayer video, which caused Pepsi to pull the ads she had done for them (but she got to keep the $4-5 million) and the Pope to call for Italians to boycott her Blonde Ambition dates there. The video actually has an anti-racist messsage. A black man comes to the aid of woman being murdered, but he is arrested for the crime and jailed, until Madonna, who has witnessed the crime, secures his release.

The Express Yourself Video, which at the time was the most expensive video ever. It was directed by David Fincher, who would later direct Se7en and Fight Club:
