Music videos[edit]

The music video for "Material Girl" was inspired by Monroe's performance of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" in the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
  • "Material Girl" by Madonna (1985): The music video is a mimicry of Monroe's performance of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" from the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. "Well, my favorite scene in all of Monroe's movies is when she does that dance sequence for 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend'. And when it came time to do the video for the song [Material Girl], I said, I can just redo that whole scene and it will be perfect," she explained in a 1987 interview with New York Daily News. "Marilyn was made into something not human in a way, and I can relate to that. Her sexuality was something everyone was obsessed with and that I can relate to. And there were certain things about her vulnerability that I'm curious about and attracted to."[210][211]
  • "Don't Forget About Us" by Mariah Carey (2005): During a pool scene, Carey re-enacts a part from Monroe's film Something's Got to Give (1962) by singing with one leg up on the edge.[212] In an interview with MTV News, Carey spoke of the re-enactment: "That shot was totally and completely inspired by 'Something's Got to Give,' Marilyn Monroe's last movie that never got finished. It's an homage to her, because I've never seen anyone re-create it. So many people have emulated so many of Marilyn's classic moments, but it's just that I'm a big fan of hers, and I thought it was really pretty at night with the pool. No one could ever be as fabulous as Marilyn was, but it's in honor and homage to her."[212]
  • "Give Me All Your Luvin'" by Madonna featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. (2012): Costumes worn in the video included a retro inspired look; the trio wore white lace dresses reminiscent of Madonna's look in her 20s, as well as Marilyn Monroe.[213]
  • "National Anthem" by Lana Del Rey (2012): Del Rey apes Monroe's "Happy Birthday, Mr. President"[214]
